COLUMN: The PDC’s idea for a Gary Anderson replacement is better than its execution

Post by PVDarts501 » Tue Feb 05, 2019 11:31 am

The decision from the PDC to replace Gary Anderson with nine different players in the Premier League Darts has created a social media storm.
Darts followers, fans and even players were blown away by the shock announcement.

I wrote a column about it, do you agree or disagree with it?

I would have been tempted to invite just one player myself but I see the idea. It may have been better to have increased it to twelve with the same three in rather than this but hey ho it's certainly different.

Isn’t this just an admittance from the PDC that the format is getting a bit stale? Because if it wasn’t they wouldn’t have been doing this.

No. If it's anything, it's an admission. ;)

They had an injured Anderson, and probably looked down the OOM and saw:

Whitlock
...
White
Chisnall
Webster
...

and thought, no, they need to do something different.

Could have easily given a permanent place to someone else not in that list a fresh face would be welcome given their were no debutants this year.

But this is a good solution its just stupid that they are giving points for these games.

Darren deserves to be in the pl more than any of the 9 picked for the one off matches.
