Thos people talking about how impressive the 02 is are completely missing the point. There was never any question that a multi million pound, modern venue was going to be un upgrade on Lakeside. The question was to its viability; how many tickets would be sold, would people travel to London in enough numbers to justify binning Potter's prize money. It took the PDC years before it had grown its brand sufficiently to move away from the Circus Tavern. There should have been a business plan put in place to grow the BDo over a numbert of years. Instead Des has dived into this head first and has reportedly drained the BDO's cash reserves for what looks like an arrogant, bombastic vanity project.

But the Lakeside is "the home of darts!"

You are spot on. They still can't accept that their mates playing darts are ticket sellers to the general public, and there aren't enough wanting to pay to watch inside the BDO bubble.

Why is being held after Christmas an issue now, when it wasn't for years and years before the decline in quality?

Some guy on Fanatics saying he doesn't care how many are there watching because it's a week of BDO darts on TV..... When it was said that if nobody turns up there will be no more TV to watch he said there will always be a World Championship even its streamed like Selsey because there are too many players not to have one...
