I see the pdc are not calling warren a world champion on the post about qschool.

no mention that warren won the bdo worlds this week just he’s the reigning “bdo champion” and mention mark Webster as a “previous bdo champion”

They were calling them world champions last year
They called them Lakeside Champion lol

I hope someone convinces him to go. Even if for one day just to keep Challenge Tour as an option. Who knows if he gets a card or does really well the first day he may feel like staying for the rest. He's not getting any younger, surely this year is a better year to give it a shot than next.

If he got a card, he'd be the oldest player in the PDC.

He should get to play Grand Slam, and he'll get some exhibitions.

Just hope he plays one day so he can play CT if he wants.

If money was higher he would have taken the year off work. But as he only won 23k he still has to work so can’t comity himself to the tour. That’s the just of what was said on the BBC Wales news. Hope he changes his mind over the coming days and gives it ago though.

Fair enough.. although before the indigo he was saying he was going to QS and he only had first round money guaranteed then..

A bit of a short sighted reason to be honest, because even if he wanted to play the CT he can’t just enter whenever he wanted to. He still would’ve needed to play this week. He could’ve just turned up on Saturday and lost first round.

And with possibly no BDO to fall back on, he may be forced into a year off.

Easy for us to sit here and criticize, we arent the ones who have just been fucked over by the BDO big style.

Given his trade he knows the next 5 or so years might be his last being able to work fulltime, and he has a young family, so it's a massive gamble for him to go on the pro tour a work is way up for a couple of years, especially given his age.

Without the 100k back up then I can sadly see he just hasn't got a choice. A healthy bdo/wdf circuit is exactly what someone in Wayne's situation/age needs, but looks like he will be shafted.

Although maybe he could nip up on Sunday and show his face and get CT qualified, assuming he cant get a refund now.

Poor excuse for wayne not to go because he didn't get paid what he was expecting. He's coming off the biggest win of his life, he's no spring chicken and despite what all the BDO fanatics say its lost its prestige. Being undercut should make him go even more.

So you’ve been done over by the BDO with prize money ,agree like the rest of us the BDO is finished and he is the last world champion and is just a normal working bloke with not many years left in a tough job, for Christ’s sake go and take your anger out at Q school that he’s paid for and at least end up on challenge tour with a pathway to earning a decent wedge that his undoubted talent deserves.
Or go to Romania for expenses at best, chasing points for a competition only happening in a delusional narcissists head.

Anyone betting on this?

Surely there’s some value in justicia at 3s, Huybrechts at 10/3 and portela at 6s.

Remember when you claimed that the news of the WDF removing official status from the BDO was bollocks?
