We will also look to releasing dates, venue and TV information for the 2020 BDO World Trophy, the 2020 one80 L-style World Masters and the 2021 BDO World Professional Darts Championship.
What TV information is there to fekkin release, Des? Its on Eurosport, the contract says so.
Did they not sign 3 year contracts for the venue's aswell? I.e King George's hall and Circus tavern and a 10 year for the indigo 🤔
That is what Des said at the time.. He made a big deal who about it saying it ends up all the uncertainty that happens each year in the BDO..

The trouble with Des is that he forgets what lies he's told and when so you end up believing nothing

Maybe the rest of the money should be tied up in legal expenses against Sportotal, there was no sponsor for the WDT or the Masters(really, but Des claimed l-style) and none for the Worlds(which should have been agreed at least 6 months before the tourney).

I would be asking them what companies they approached and show detailed dealings with sponsors.
There again Sportotal probably have more cash than the BDO, all thanks to the BDO, to get good solicitors.

You can't do badly when you are being paid for doing nothing.

They picked up 1 sponsor at least in the course of the O2

The cards the crowd held up went from being being blank bits of paper to something Media headed ones around Weds or Thursday

fek me, I’ve just read that letter. If anyone believes any of those promises or that ‘The BDO are in a strong position going forward’, then they are a fool. :)

Just how stupid does Des think everyone is?
He thinks they are all stupid because they are, the have believed his shite from the start. There are people in powerful positions in the BDO/EDO/Counties etc that still believe the bullshit. Deserve what they get.

‘We heard the prize fund would be halved, everybody thought it was still a lot of money, £50,00 for the winner, it’s still a lot for the BDO. :DDD:

Must be the first top player to have pointed out the ridiculousness of that shared Facebook account.

"We have a clothing manufacturer, a company who have approached me and asked if they can sponsor the BDO. This isn’t just a one event issue; they want to sponsor the BDO. I don’t believe the BDO have ever had that"
A clothing manufacturer who produces copyright infringing shirts?

Rout will be along shortly to give us estimated viewership from people in Asian nations watching on illegal streams. Early indications suggest obscene figures that may even cause flipping, so be warned.
