How many days left on this deal, numberwangs?
before the BDO lose the deal due to breach of contract? not long I wager
Nah this event still goes ahead imo, even if only 10 people are in the crowd.
I suspect you are right, but it will surely cost shit loads of money, which was one of the things Des said he wouldnt let happen again....
they are between a rock and a hard place without doubt.

Long live the BDO. Long live proper darts. Long live the official body of darts. And long live the BDO die hards who defend the BDO on social media.

"Despite only being voted on as BDO Chairman / CEO in August, Des Jacklin and his team, alongside Sportotal, have been working hard behind the scenes to secure a broadcasting commitment which provides the foundation for a structured long term commercial strategy and allows the organisation to plan and commit to venues and much more in advance."

I know hindsight is wonderful thing, but you re-read that passage from the press release now, and it's impossible to know where to begin with pulling it apart.

I don't disagree that we should not be going overboard with this as sponsorship, venues, prize money and ticket sales are elements still to be confirmed, but you have to start somewhere, and the tv coverage is good news.
Must be more news to follow.
