It is the PDC Tour I am worried about. Wright, Whitlock and Anderson are long in the tooth. MVG is showing signs of decline. Cross blows hot and cold. I could go on. I guess there is Aspinall and Dobey, not youths, but young adults.

It is the grassroots of the game that needs addressing. Where is the new generation going to come from? Some tough questions need to be asked in the coming months. The PDC should act now, before this really becomes a problem for the game.

Then it will be time for Bunting to step up from being the third best player in the world, to the best. Funnily enough there used to be a poster on here, utterly riddled with small man syndrome who really believed that.

OK, so why did said poster then spend months and months denying he ever said this if this was the widely held opinion? :fishing :fishing

Yes! Nah, Wazza is far too thick to actually be Rout.

He was apparently better than Gary Anderson, Peter Wright, Jackpot and Barney amongst others. This based on beating James Wilson constantly.

Poor comparison.

The PDC cannot be compared to the FA Premier League. They don't have the top 128 players in the world, even now. There was no promotion/relegation process in place between the PDC and BDO in 2014 either. The BDO had a handful of the top 32 in 2014 when Bunting won their Championship.

But carry on the trolling.
