Post by Moongoose McQueeen » Fri Jan 25, 2019 2:17 pm

May not be accurate but I'm sure the lerned men of darts will help me if I've missed out anyone who played the BDO system first.

1 Michael Smith
2 Gerwyn Price
3 Darren Webster
4 Adrian Lewis
5 Joe Cullen
6 Jonny Clayton
7 Kyle Anderson
8 Jermaine Wattimena
9 Cristo Reyes
10 Max Hopp
11 Dmitri Van Den Bergh
12 Chris Dobey
13 Keegan Brown
14 Steve Lennon
15 Richard North
16 Brendan Dolan
17 Justin Pipe
18 Jeffrey Dean Zwaan
19 William O'Connor
20 Martin Schindler

What's that clicking noise?

It's the sound of people changing the channel.

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.

Players who went straight to the PDC rather than doing the BDO tour. Obviously players might have played some BDO events, but there's a difference between playing an event and touring. And some of those players might have played in a bunch of junior events.

And of course, he meant de Zwaan, rather than Dean Zwaan.
Also, it's Van den Bergh, rather than Van Den Bergh. Belgians use an initial capital on the Van, but not on the den if there is one and the Dutch don't put an initial capital on the van or de.

Showing how selective Garrymong's ex-BDOism is. Without the former BDO players the PDC would be even more unwatchable

Keegan Brown played BDO first s he played plenty of county games for the IoW when he was quite young and seeing as county is a path to qualify for the Masters and the World's you can probably knock off all the other English Players in tha list as they must surely have all played County or Super League.

You won't get a completely ,untarnished by the BDO ,PDC player until someone comes thru the JDC and then straight into the PDC development tour etc

I hate all this debate bollocks as virtually everyone will have played pub/club darts first. So calling people BDO players or products is also just stupid. People will play darts locally first it doesn’t really matter if that’s BDO darts or not.

With a bit of thought it might be possible for some of the Asian, American & possibly Aussie players to join the PDC without ever playing any part of the BDO system but then I would of thought they would all have at some point played within some form of the WDF.

this is why people laugh at bdo supporters.

Listing players who played in the bdo is like listing players who played for lower league clubs before joining the premiership.
It just proves the lower leagues are predominantly lower standard, and those who are better that that standard move to the big leagues.

In fact all that list proves is how many people left the bdo.

Jonny Clayton played for Wales in the WDF Europe Cup (and probably other international matches) and also the World Masters.

Just because they played there first, doesn't mean they owe their entire career to them.

Michael Van Gerwen. World Masters, yeah, did piss all at Lakeside and then switched. Spent what? Months playing BDO events? The Michael Van Gerwen we have today was made on the PDC youth tour, he's a product of the PDC as much as Michael Smith is.

Are you saying that the BRITISH darts org is responsible for people around the world for playing darts.

People like whitlkock who grew up in australia and then came to the uk to play PDC before playing bdo would never have played darts if it were not for the BDO ??? :grin: :grin:
