That Dave, is a fact.  BDO is p*ss poor by comparison. That's why 'best' BDO members 'defect to PDC, better prize money, exposure, quality, etc. BDO is equivalent of Scottish Highland League versus the EPL of PDC.  Andy Fordham, Ted Hankey, etc. Pure uttter s*** even at their best, still not fit to tie the laces of Taylor, Barney, Wade, et al.

BDO used to run all of the Darts but about 22 years ago,  all the big players of that time such as Bristow, Lowe, Dellar, Wilson etc weren't happy with the way the game was being run so they broke away and formed the PDC, with the help of sky money.  Was a major gamble at the time but proved to be a master stroke,  now the PDC is massive,  even tried to buy out  the BDO a few months back.  I think BDO kind of runs the amateur side of the game and PDC want to invest in that to help grow the sport although i might be wrong.
Title: Re: The Darts

No you're about spot on. Hearn offered to amalgamate the two but the BDO refused. More than likely because the s**** in the BDO will just disappear.

Surely though its 'the s****' that makes the game?
The equivilent of the kids kicking it about in pub football who'll always look to play at the highest level their ability will take them to? Would that fella from Stanley have got anywhere near a final if he'd opted for the SKY route? What does the PDC do at grass roots?
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: gggg on Monday 4 January 2010, 12:56:05 AM
The split and getting a deal with Sky are the best things to ever happen to the sport. The fact that Sky now have wall to wall coverage of 6 or 7 tournaments while the BDO STILL, 18 years on only have one TV tournament all year which plays second fiddle to repeats of Dads Army and Last of the summer wine on the BBC is conclusive proof of that.

Fair play to the original breakaway group who only wanted to earn a living from the game, and risked their careers to get it, they've been proven totally right and are now reaping the rewards with the game becoming as popular as it's ever been - no thanks to Olly Croft (who has great similaritys to Mike Ashley).

Their have been some decent players in the BDO over the last five or six years (Van Barneveld, King, Klassen, Van Der Voort, Thornton, Webster, Anderson, Whitlock). The trouble is as soon as they get to a decent standard they have no incentive to stay. They can get as much for reaching the second round of a PDC event as they can for winning the top BDO tournament. Anyone who can throw a 15 dart leg is better off playing in the PDC.

I hope they accept Barry Hearn's offer to amalgimate the two under the PDC banner, especially as the BDO are in massive debt.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Magpie on Monday 4 January 2010, 10:11:45 PM
Hopefully it won't be too long before they don't have a choice. Webster said after getting knocked out of the quarters or semis last year and with a £4,000 cheque that he wouldn't be back. He won £60,000 for coming third at the PDC.

Heard Tony Green say that aswell. What an absolute joke!! I honestly think he'd struggle to take a leg against Taylor.

Well he only managed to take 4 against Taylor in their semi final match which he lost 6-0 (3-0, 3-1, 3-1, 3-2, 3-0, 3-0). But there is no shame in being battered by the greatest thrower of arrows the world has ever seen. Even the players closest to The Power very rarely beat him. Of course he loses every now and then but he is a different level, it's just not fair to measure the rest of the players against him.
Title: Re: The Darts

Agreed. And he's 8/1 with Laddies to get to 20 World Championships!!
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: MKSC on Monday 4 January 2010, 11:22:15 PM
Given how he has been about 1/4 to win the title every year for the last god knows how long 8/1 seems a fair price. I can definitely see him winning let's say 3 out of the next 5 so no reason to suggest he won't get to 20. He said on talksport this morning that he was aiming for 20 before he retires.
Title: Re: The Darts

Whitlock has been announced as one of the two wildcard entrants for the upcoming Premier League. Given that his World Championship run saw him knock out three of the guys who have qualified via the order of merit then I think it's a fair shout.

I think it was mind games. When Lewis got it back to 4-4, Taylor threw his first three darts and then said something and Lewis said F off. Think Taylor was trying to rattle him. In the interview afterwards Lewis suggested Taylor was using 'tactics' and Taylor said he won't do interview until tomorrow.

Whitlock hopefully gets his ally pally spears back & wade will obviously be in the mix with taylor.

Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: O'Neill on Friday 17 December 2010, 11:03:44 AM
Taylor was awful last night and rather fortunate to be playing someone who couldn't take advantage.

I put my money on Webster on Tuesday @ 25/1 to win it. Finished third last year, has been in good form recently and played well last night despite a minor hiccup in the third set.

If Taylor can't find his form, which I think is very likely given that he has modified his darts to the point that they are becoming difficult to play with then there are plenty of names in with a shout.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Thespence on Friday 17 December 2010, 11:09:47 AM
I am not sure if Webster has that killer touch. What do you think of Whitlocks chances? Got to be in with chance much more than the world number 2 aka James Wade.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: gggg on Friday 17 December 2010, 11:23:06 AM
I think it's Wades year. He's got the easiest run to the semis and should beat Barney on current form or the bottle job Anderson, if they get that far.

I'd like it to happen so I can take him being placed amongst the greats more seriously. Sid Waddel listed his top 10 best darts players on twitter last week and had Wade in but not three time World Champion John Lowe. ffs

I am not sure if Webster has that killer touch. What do you think of Whitlocks chances? Got to be in with chance much more than the world number 2 aka James Wade.

Whitlock is always a strong shout as he seems to be able to take out high finishes on a regular basis. Wade has been playing well though and I think given his draw that he should easily get to the semis. The other players all seem a little hit or miss. Barney, we all know can be brilliant but equally can fall to pieces and then there are a lot of outside bets who can play some great darts if they go on a run of form. The likes of Webster, Anderson, Lewis, King etc can all produce.

Not sure if you have been living under a rock chap but Mardle lost his right arm in a freak car accident about a year ago.  Accident similar to that one-armed drummer with Def Leopard in a car accident except Mardle was being a dick.  F*cking tragic way for your career to end but that's what happens when you f*cking drink drive, hit over 100mph and think it's funny to lob darts out of the car window at passers-by.  Idiot lost control and took his arm clean off.  Reckon he's playing again with a prosthetic arm but it'll takes ages for him to get back to what he was i reckon.  Poor b******.

Shocked to see James Wade lost last night, not sure how I missed that news.  Makes Barney's side of the draw look rather easier.  Taylor should have a tougher run to the final, with Webster in the quarters and Whitlock in the semis if it goes to plan.

That's pretty much the size of it. He lost his qualifier. The spell he had out of the game due to illness at the start of 2009 saw him fall down the rankings and he hasn't ever really been able to find form again.

He's really struggled over the last few years. Pretty much since he beat Taylor at the Worlds and then threw the next game away to a qualifer, Kirk Shepherd I think. That just about summed him up and he's been poor ever since. Shame as he was one of my favourite players.

Van der Voort vs Whitlock just finished, was a cracking match. Loads of 100+ and then some really shoddy finishing, both players blew chances to win/save sets and Whitlock had six darts at 81 to save the match and fudged it.

Lewis looked good earlier today but can't look much further than Anderson at the minute. Averages of 103, 103 and 108 so far.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Magpie on Thursday 30 December 2010, 08:53:57 PM
Webster's sneakily creeping along. Taken a while for him to settle since he switched over but he's a decent player and has looked solid. Saying that mind it's all about he performs in the big matches against the likes of Taylor etc.

Anderson Taylor final for me and I fancy an upset!
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: MKSC on Thursday 30 December 2010, 08:58:39 PM
Aye, the little welshie has looked comfortable in his games so far, but he has Taylor in the QF. Even an off-form Taylor is too good for the majority of players, especially at the World Championships, so it'll really show if he has what it takes to sit at the top table.

The trouble with beating Taylor though, as Mardle found a couple of years ago, is keeping that level up in the next round. It is almost harder than actually beating him.

Taylor was awful last night and rather fortunate to be playing someone who couldn't take advantage.

I put my money on Webster on Tuesday @ 25/1 to win it. Finished third last year, has been in good form recently and played well last night despite a minor hiccup in the third set.

If Taylor can't find his form, which I think is very likely given that he has modified his darts to the point that they are becoming difficult to play with then there are plenty of names in with a shout.

Wasn't a bad shout from the first set of games.

The top four in the order of merit qualify for the PL.

The rankings before the World champs were:

1. Taylor 1.073M
2. Wade 310,742
3. Barney 278,400
4. Whitlock 206,950
5. Lewis 199,350
6. King 186,250
7. Jenkins 180,820
8. Baxter 178,842
9. Lloyd 169,385
10. Walsh 167,542
11. Anderson 162,450

Lewis gets 200k, Anderson 100k, Webster and Jenkins 50k, Newton VDV Barney and Taylor get 25k.

Lewis gets in automatically. Anderson just misses out but will likely get a wild card. I suspect Webster will also get in and probably Whitlock. Final place could go to a number of players.

Anderson will qualify automatically because the prize money from the 2009 PDC World Championship has to be removed from that list before the winnings from this year are applied. Therefore Barney who reached that final that year I believe will come down to 5th while Anderson will take 4th. Should read something like:

Taylor
Lewis
Wade
Anderson
Barneveld
Whitlock

As far as the Premier League goes I think the eight suggested would be the most sensible selection in terms of entertainment. Depends who is picking the wildcards though.

The only difference is the wires are a little bit thinner, which is the general progression of dart boards anyway. The board the BDO uses now is a Blade 4 and its wires are very, very similar to the PDC Eclipse board. I'm just saying, the boards aren't altered to cater for higher averages.

Aye that was the leg that won it for Wade. Whitlock banged in a 180 with the throw and Wade followed with a maximum of his own and then the 135. He's a w***** in person but on the dart board he's an excellent player and has balls of steel. He would have won a massive amount more only for a certain Mr. Taylor.

My darts side arranged a double exhibition with him and Barney. Keep in mind they received £3,000 each. From the get go Wade was cocky and arrogant and strutting around like he owned the place. When it got to the actual games he was very mechanical and extremely boring. No interaction with the crowd, didn't talk to the people who had paid more money to play him and once the games finished he just walked off stage. Barney had recently just been diagnosed with diabetes and claimed to be very tired but still played along with the crowd, got down on his knees for doubles and signed autographs after his games.

Once the actual darts was over there was a meet and greet in our own personal darts room. This area was for VIP's only and most people had paid £50 for a VIP pass. Since I was part of the team that organised the event I got into VIP for free. Wade was standing by a wall laughing with his security guard and signing autorgraphs for people. He was signing their name without looking at them or the paper and didn't even talk to them. I walked up and got his autograph and then asked politely, "could I get a photo with you James?" to which he replied, "I've got more important things to do I'm afraid," and then walked off. That's a w*****.

I got in free so it wasn't too bad for me, but I was thinking of other people who might have asked and got a rude reply or nothing at all after paying £50 to see their men. Barney stuck around for about 10 minutes of the meet and greet, which was supposed to be an hour and cited tiredness. Like I said before though he had been diagnosed with diabetes recently and may have been telling the truth.

We organised exhibitions very often in our town and all of the organisers unanimously agreed that they would never ever invite Wade back again. In comparison, John Part was £800 and was absolutely fantastic. He had fun with the crowd, took and signed pictures, threw with his bad hand and went for outrageous checkouts and best of all, once the night was finished, he stayed for hours and talked to everybody. I sat with him myself uninterrupted and we talked for about half an hour about darts and practice routines etc. Wayne Mardle was £800 as well and was brilliant. He could be a stand up comedian. He got on the mic every so often and just started ripping into people in the crowd. 

More recently they got Bristow and Deller in a double exhibition and said they were good fun but their darts were absolutely atrocious. Bristow can't hit tons anymore.

James Wade Suspended for next Four Events
THE Darts Regulation Authority have announced that James Wade will miss the next four PDC tournaments through suspension.

A DRA statement released on August 20 2013 states:
As a result of a series of referrals to the Darts Regulation Authority relating to the behaviour of James Wade at PDC Tour Events, James Wade was found to be in breach of rule 4.1 of the DRA Rules:
'No Player or Member shall act in a manner which may reasonably be considered to injure or discredit the DRA or bring the game of darts into disrepute'.

He has been suspended from the next four tournaments.
These are as follows:
1. The Sydney Darts Masters
2. European Tour 6, Hildesheim, Germany
3 & 4. Players Championship 7 & 8, Barnsley

The DRA do not routinely publish the outcomes of hearings, but in this case it related to a senior player not being able to enter high-profile tournaments and it was important to clarify the reason for this.

Wade will be replaced as a Seeded Player for the Sydney Darts Masters by Paul Nicholson, with an additional qualifying place to be made available at the Oceanic Masters on Wednesday August 28.

The world number five will be available to return to action in the German Darts Masters European Tour event, from September 20-22 in Sindelfingen.

Effectively every floor event he loses in.

That's the official case related to Wade by the way. He's guilty of several or all of those. I'll find out soon enough exactly what he done and let you know. It's more than likely all of those after losing a match though. He probably lost the head and went apeshit.

Cricket.

Batters: Everything more than 40 scores as runs.

Bowlers: Take 10 wickets. 25 = 1 wicket and bull = 2 wickets.

Or Shanghai. Go round the board starting with 3 darts at 1. Single scores 1, Double scores 2 and treble scores 3. Move on to 3 darts at 2 etc. Anything over 50 is decent like.

Forgot to ask you about your conversation with Part, mate. What did he say about his practice routines? Getting a little bit bored with ma 301 double in/out and going round in doubles.

Part plays 501 in his head and if he doesn't finish in 15 darts he starts again. He basically told me that practice by yourself is all about your keeping your arm in check and the only real practice you're ever going to get is against somebody else. He also told me that there has to be something on the line for you to keep your head in check, and then gave the example of going into a pub and playing someone for a few bucks or a pint. I agree with him on the last bit.

I have a practice routine that I got off Justin Pipe and it's excellent for checkout improvement. With your first two darts you must score 80 or more and then your third dart you go for double 1. If you hit double 1 you move on to double 2, so hit 80 or more again and then go for double 2. If you don't hit 80 or more with the first two, start again, and if you don't hit the double with your first dart, you start again. You've to do this the whole way around the board until you hit 80+ and hit the bull. It's difficult but really good practice, because there's going to be a lot of legs where you'll have an 80+ checkout or legs where you'll only get one dart at the double.

My main practice uses this: http://www.nakka.com/soft/n01/index_eng.html

Just set it to the level you want and record your score. It will then simulate another players score as if you're playing a proper leg. You can change everything on it. The level of the opponent, how fast it throws etc. Plus it takes down all your statistics such as your average, doubles percentage, 180's etc.

Like Part said though, get to a pub with a mate and ask them to play for a pint. Everybody wants to win a free pint. It'll be competitive and it'll raise your game, as long as they aren't total muck.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some news back on Wade. One of the offenses was in a UK Open qualifier, he drew Van Gerwen in the first round and stormed off in a huff. He then claimed to be sick despite many people seeing him in perfect condition 15 minutes before the draw.

Another offence was that for one of his qualifier matches at the UK Open he was put on one of the outer boards, and felt that he should be on one of the stage boards, even though it's a random draw. He threw his head up over this and started going off his head at everybody, including PDC Officials, and claiming the PDC was a disgrace. Once the game was over he was still in a pissy mood and giving abuse to officials.
Those two account for:

- Failing to complete a match
- Abusive and violent behaviour
- Swearing at the conclusion of a match
- Inappropriate behaviour during a match/tournament
- Inappropriate behaviour towards a PDC Official

The only two things left are throwing the darts away at the end of the match and swearing on live TV, which could have been covered by those two as well.

As much as I hate him he's a terrible waste. I know he's won a s*** load but he could have been a hell of a lot better with the right mental attitude.

tl;dr - Practice for pints and Wades a cock.

Great advice, mate. Cheers. Pipe's routine sounds perfect.

:thup: Just don't get disheartened at that Pipe routine. I play to a pretty high standard and it can take me close to two hours to finish it sometimes. The 80 is rarely a problem, but the double in one dart is killer.

If you're interested, another thing Wade was punished for was going off at officials for a mid-match board change during the Matchplay. Not sure who he was playing but I remember watching it. He won the next four or five legs once it was changed too. :lol:
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Ronaldo on Friday 23 August 2013, 01:27:00 AM
Was it not the fantastic Whitlock match? Remember him going on about it at some point during the tournament.

I've been going round the board with one dart at each double in the last few days to see how many I'm taking out. Never gets boring and really good if you just need to kill 15 minutes while tea's simmering.

What's your 3-dart average then?
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Friday 23 August 2013, 06:23:22 AM
In practice I can usually maintain a 100 average. Whenever I'm playing in league games, which is best of 3, I'm usually around 90. As the legs go on I find it hard to keep that up in competition. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. In the last county darts season I played I averaged 87 over 7 best of five games, and was pretty happy with that. Daryl Gurney topped that season with a 105 average IIRC. The season before that I managed around 80, but I beat Brendan Dolan 3-2 that year. :lol: I was only 19 or 20 at the time and was in contention for the Northern Ireland youth squad, but missed out by about 5 points.

Here's another practice routine and I'd be interested to see what you get, since it's extremely difficult. So basically though for a big number, i.e. 20's, 19's or 18's. A single is worth 1 point, and a treble is worth 3. If you go either side of the big number, it's -3. So if you score 100, it's 5 points. 81 is worth 1 point, 45 is worth -1, 26 is worth -5 and so on. See how high you can get in 10 throws. My highest is 41, and I was on fire. It's real good practice though. Most people can score at any level, but they'll throw a lot of loose darts, whereas if you look at the professionals, it's extremely rare they go either side of the 20.


Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Friday 23 August 2013, 06:29:47 AM
http://northernirelanddarts.com/countyaverages.html

Here's a current list of the averages in N.I. county darts. Pretty high standard, and England goes up another notch again. If players could maintain their county averages in major tournaments they'd dangerous.

Also, the average is on the far right. You get an extra half point put on your average for a win and you're allowed to drop your lowest average from your score at the end of the season. I was Area 7, and our top guy is sitting with 87 at the minute, which is real good darts.

He hasn't been too bad. He made waves with his World Championship debut (2009?) getting to the quarters and hasn't really fulfilled his potential since. He was very poor around the end of 2010/beginning of 2011 but has improved since then and done well on the floor tournaments. He should have done better in the UK Open mind, but he's still picking up a bit of money to keep him in the top 20 of the Order of Merit.

A few of the guys I'm playing with over here know him personally and he told them Sky make him do the whole silly walk on and bad boy image thing by the way, just in case anyone dislikes him because of that. I guess they pay him a bit of extra money to act like a tool.

What happened this time with him? I really dislike him but it's still a shame. He has a phenomenal talent. When he was coming through I was sure he'd win the World Championship before he was 30. Unless he wises himself up he has no chance.

What more can be said about Taylor though? I didn't see the games but he dropped one leg in semi and one leg in the final against two top players. The guy is a machine. Can still see him being competitive at 60, should be decide to go on for that long.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Ronaldo on Sunday 3 November 2013, 10:46:03 PM
Wade's 30 now anyway, isn't he?

Anyway, as Taylor brilliantly put it (:lol:) he was 'bouncing up and down like a kangeroo' after beating Whitlock and sarcastically waved him off stage when he rightly didn't wait around for a handshake. Then while averaging about 73 against Taylor tonight he twice asked the officials if he could just forfeit the game, the first time when only 1-4 down ffs. Also made a big deal of Taylor giving a damaged flight to a front row fan, asking for it back then taking over 2 minutes to fit the replacement flight to the stem.

Taylor said after the game he's got no business on a stage when he's like that, and Chris Mason even went as far as saying he's in a dreadful place mentally.

Yeah he's 30 now. I think his chance at the World title is gone, but his doubles are so good he'll always have a shot I guess.

When Chris Mason is saying that you know something is wrong. He's been guilty of being a massive knob on stage in the past. I think Wade is just a dickhead by nature. No doubt he's got some problems but there's no way I'd let him off the hook and attribute all this nonsense to that. He has been an asshole from day one before any mental problems were even apparent.

They weren't that much worse for Adrian Lewis against Barney, but he just smiles and takes it in the right spirit, and sure enough by the end of the night they're all singing his name.

Apparently some personal comments were directed at Wade that upset him, but who knows. He brings it all on himself with his disrespect of the game and his opponents.

James Wade (97.17) 8 (15) 7 (94.13) Simon Whitlock
Robert Thornton (98.8) 2 (15) 8 (107.93) Adrian Lewis
Phil Taylor (109.28) 8 (15) 2 (99.27) Wes Newton

Those losing averages man. :lol:

Scott Waites got to the final of it two years in a row 2009/2010 (I think). I think this is the year that the BDO players will lose every game they play though.  Tony O'Shea never plays well at it, so it's down to Kist and Waites to try and give the BDO something to shout about.

Thornton looked excellent last night considering how ill he looked. Looked like he hardly had anything in him but he was still finding the treble 20 on a regular occurrence and hitting doubles when really needed. That Beau Anderson was canny s*** though and way out of his depth against him.

It's that way for a lot of fluid throwers. He's a world class player but he doesn't have the consistency to dominate like Taylor did. Him and Lewis are very similar but MVG has the tendency to dip more in matches than Lewis does, which is why I think Lewis will win more in the end. If he doesn't dip you see what happens though. He annihilates people. Very few can deal with it.

Anderson won the PL a couple of years ago like, and was really good in the World Championship.

Wade always comes across as an enormous dickhead and is s*** to watch, he'll not be missed.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Friday 3 January 2014, 11:33:57 AM
Anderson is a top player but he probably doesn't deserve to be in there. If there were no Scots in I could understand but we've already got Wright and Thornton in this year so the only real reason Anderson is in is because he scores high and is fast. I imagine he was one of Sky's wildcards and all they're interested in is entertainment. Andy Hamilton will not be happy.

Wade being dropped is clearly nothing to do with his performance. Consistently one of the best players in the World for the last 5 years. It's his health problems and attitude that have cost him here. If we're going on ability though, and it should be, he should probably be in there. He's released a statement and he's gutted. Quite a bit of dough in the Premier League and everyone who isn't involved takes a hit in the OoM. And aye Hans I've met almost every player on the tour. Wades behaviour was ridiculous. It's all here in the thread if you want to go back and have a look why.

I thought Kim Huybrechts might have been included after a good year. Dolan won two tour events this year as well but he's too slow and methodical to be picked for a wildcard. All the other flashy players like Van der Voort, Klaasen etc are too low on the Order of Merit to even justify a wildcard.

It's a good field anyway there'll be some crackers there for sure.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Matt on Friday 3 January 2014, 11:56:45 AM
A bit of showmanship clearly goes a long way in getting a wildcard- Chisnall, RVB and Anderson should hit plenty of 180s.

I can't stand Wade, he is so crushingly dull when he opens his mouth. The conversation between him and his walk-on missus must be riveting fare. I wonder if his strop against Taylor was a factor in his omission?
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: O'Neill on Friday 3 January 2014, 06:00:33 PM
Is there some sort of sponsorship deal that prevents them taking the Premier League Darts outwith the UK & Ireland? I just figured that having had Barney in there for years as well as the likes of Scholten, Klaasen and more recently Van Gerwen that they would have seen that as a huge opportunity to do a week over in the Netherlands.

I'm also a little baffled by the selection process. I'm reading that it's top four in the OOM plus six wildcards? That's rather harsh. Surely it would make sense to go with top six and four wildcards? It almost seems like they are determined to pick and choose who they want as opposed to allowing players a better chance to qualify on performances. Definitely tough on those players who don't have huge personalities to go with their game.

If it was up to me we'd have the top 4 from the OoM along with Beaton, Hankey, Ovens, Nicholson, Burnett and, just to make sure it doesn't get too exciting, Justin Pipe.

He won me my first ever darts bet by winning the Premier League, was my first bet on darts and wasn't sure much about it then and just randomly took him. He goes on to win and won a fair bit off him so i've just basically continued to back him in pretty much all major tournaments since. He usually gives me a good run for my money as well, the Lewis comeback in the worlds almost made me sick.

And my brother hates his guts which I love even more and pretty much everyone else hates him too, which I think is brilliant.

That thing last year where Taylor gave a lad in the crowd a knackared flight of Wade's and then he threatened to forfeit the game because of it, f***ing hell man. What sort of a c*** does that ffs?

Wade probably keeps every flight he uses or something- you could tell it triggered some mental obsession of his. I don't know why they bother interviewing the man, he never has anything to say, just spouts something mundane then repeats himself a couple of times.

If it was an isolated incident then you'd maybe understand, but Wade's disrespect of his opponents and officials has always been so consistent. I know the bloke has got some mental issues and you can make allowances to an extent, but the bloke just strikes me as a complete and utter prick. He has no business being in the game when he behaves the way he has in the last 2 or 3 years in particular.

Of course, Hearn made it clear he was being left out to give him a break and hopefully sort himself out for the following year; Wade responded by whining about being left out and saying he didn't want a break etc.

After beating Taylor last night after a long losing streak, great mentality. Then arguably the form player of the tournament in Gary Anderson, two sets down, and then needing to win the last two remaining sets, was a bit special! He started so slowly but never let his head drop, just kept plugging away slowly coming to the boil and deservedly booked his place in the final. PL return awaits!

More just the fact his natural ability is far superior to some of those who were entered last year. His form has improved since being left out. With the WC around the corner, another decent tournament awaits if builds up this kind of form in the longer format. I'll be surprised if he's omitted from the line-up again but I can't see that happening.

Of course he will be. His lack of form and cuntish ways saw him dropped last year. Now his form is back together again, they would have serious questions to answer for if he wasn't called back up.

The mock throw is pretty common among guys who have had dartitis so I assume that is what it is. He averaged around 90 though and was taking out his doubles most of the time. Would imagine he does very well in North America.

I've never seen the mock throw before. They were saying that he plays soft tip darts back home. His whole throw was weird though - huge lean forward. Was very impressed though, he won well in the prelim and had good figures v Anderson.

Now, does anyone think VVdV can f*** this up? Big John Henderson has been in shocking form and has barely even qualified for a televised event all year. I have a cash out option of £63.

There is a 16 year old kid from Bedlington who won the Zuiderduin Masters the other week who has the quickest throw I've ever seen. His name is Callan Rydz - tipped to go very far but some believe he'll have to slow down. I don't see why they tell him that, personally  I think quicker throwers make great tele.

When Anderson is hitting his doubles he's unstoppable. Nobody can really outscore him. MvG hitting 11 and 12's and losing 3-1. :lol:

6-3 looks good for MvG to be honest. Should have been about 6-1. Just hope Anderson can keep this sort of form up in the final. Would rather him face Barney than Phil.

Need I mention the phantom double against Dean Winstanley

A mistake made by every bloke who's played darts at sometime or another. There were TV cameras present. If he knew it hadn't gone in he'd also have known the 'error' would've been discovered.

throwing James Wade's flights off the stage

:lol: :lol: Wade discarded the flight himself before Taylor gave it to a fan. Would never have come to public attention if not for Wade's nonsense that night. Trying to forfeit the game etc.

spitting his dummy out when Peter Manley asked him to sign the board

Peter Manley's a classless arsehole. Fair play.

Sky and the PDC has allowed idiots with no interest in darts to come in and get drunk to pad the prize money. That won't last like. BDO will eventually compete again IMO. Mitchell will probably move over to the PDC for a second time as well.

Why won't it last? The BDO has 1 televised tournament a year compared to however many the PDC has. It's totally antiquated, like football if it was still in the 80s. Admittedly it does far more at the grass roots level but the standard gap is like Prem vs Championship.

Loads of BDO tournaments are televised man, you just don't know about them. Even the Northern Ireland open was televised this year and it's a category B tournament held in f***ing Newry in Ireland. :lol:

It won't last because the novelty of going to the darts, dressing up and drinking will die. It won't be in the next couple of years, but it will happen. When Barney and Taylor retire the viewer base will take a hit as well. Once that does happen though the prize money will inevitably drop and players will be less eager to jump ship to the PDC.

It's at the height of its popularity now and I hope Barry Hearn has some sort of plan to prolong it, but I give it about 5-6 years before the gap starts closing again.

Technically I do play in the BDO, they're all open tournaments and there's no fee to join them. I picked up a load of ranking points back in 2010 and was world ranked (#156) with the BDO. I was only two wins away from the final preliminary round for the World Championships back then as well, but a 90 average isn't s*** off the TV. I can't sustain it for as long as the big guns can either and since I've come back from Australia I've been disgustingly out of form. Been beat a few times this season in our local Premier League.

Basically don't practice enough anymore. I wouldn't even count against professional throwers. Would get a hiding these days whereas I used to beat them regularly.

Peter Wright is a total bellend, man. A 45 year old bloke dressing around and jumping around like that, it's laughable. He's a canny chucker mind.

BDO have been another joke this year in the GSOD. Adams has brought a bit to the tournament with the added spice etc. but ultimately he isn't going to get any further. He's beat an out of form, perennial slow starter in Ian White, he beat Jelle Klaasen in a tight game where Klaasen had a bigger average and would surely have won in a longer format, and he's beat Steve Beaton who shouldn't be anywhere near this event.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Ronaldo on Wednesday 11 November 2015, 01:09:20 PM
Why shouldn't Beaton be in it? He's in the top 20-25 in the world and the 2 matches he lost he were only by 1 leg in addition to dicking Ian White. Be a f***ing sad day for darts when Beaton isn't in the TV tournaments. Probably a little before your time but a lot of us grew up watching the likes of him in the 90s and specifically when he became world champion.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Wednesday 11 November 2015, 01:16:17 PM
:lol: What's wrong with Beaton? Those were three good wins for Adams. 8th, 20th and 25th in the PDC respectively. He also averaged 104 against White. I'll be taking him to beat Huybrechts. Cool as a cucumber is Wolfie. 13/8 to beat him is a bit mad. It'll be close.

Harsh calling West, Mitchell and Butler a joke considering their groups too. :lol: Whereas the likes of Geert de Vos beat Jenkins and narrowly lost to Thorton in a tough group. The BDO lads are inferior because all the best players constantly flock to the PDC for more money, but they're far from a joke.

He got enough 'respect' from Wayne Mardle to last him a lifetime. I wouldn't describe KH as a "top PDC player" - he's never won a major and he's ranked 13th.

Worst GSOD ever for the BDO as the gap increases between the two codes. I can't see anyone switching this coming year as there is genuinely no one good enough (Maybe Glen Durrant is he wins Lakeshite).

Back onto the Beaton point. I just think for someone ranked 25th and some one who is regressing, he shouldn't be involved in these events. People like Caven, Dolan, Van Der Voort, Bunting etc. should be in. Even Alan Norris won a Players Championship event this year and should have been involved.

Since when is 13th not a top player man. :lol: Half the players in front of him are some of the greatest to ever play the sport.

The qualifying system for the Grand Slam is s**** for the BDO as well. Most of their best players weren't there.

Duzza would be dangerous in it too. Hope he's there next year.

This isn't just a start anymore. We're 15 legs in and he's averaging 112.1 :lol: 20 tons, 10 140s and 9 180s with a not too shabby 60% checkout rate. This is unbelievable.

This is the unfortunate thing about Taylor. Can't keep it up anymore and is more susceptible to pressure that he has ever been. Missed a s*** load of doubles in the last couple of legs that he would never have done in the past.

Great to see Chris Dobey play so well on his first TV outing today - a local lad from Bedlington who is only 25 years old. He's played in my local a couple of times and looks to be making a good effort of things since he got his PDC tour card. Hope he carries on improving as he could really make an excellent career. He also walked out to Local Hero as well which I'd love to see belted out at top darts tournaments for years :thup:

It wasn't far off Marshall James actually. What maybe saved him from being as bad was his weirdly intriguing throw that made me question how on earth he was scoring with any consistency.

Last night was also notable for the Dutch lad playing Barney busting himself with 180 left by throwing 180. Bloke was ahead in the game and would have been first to the doubles and it was to level the match at a set all. Fell to pieces after that error.

It isn't backed by Sky Sports and Barry Hearn (yet), so it obviously doesn't have the same resources. Year after year though players successful move over to the PDC to make a better living. There are plenty of world class players in the BDO, and you'll see a few new faces next year who will make an impact in the PDC. The BDO is the grassroots and the true home of darts to many darts fans. This Lakeshite stuff and abuse of the BDO is narrow sighted nonsense from casual fans (and I'm not just looking at Andy since he has made good posts in here before).

I hope that it becomes one again as it was years ago. I remember the PDC forming and thinking it was madness. I didn't watch the PDC for years, until maybe 97 except for rare occasions in the local. But when the Beatons, Burnetts, Baxters, Barneys and even the Whitlocks of the World had all defected and left Wolfie, Hankey , Walton and even Tony David to win Lakeside finals, the BDO were never going to challenge the PDC. And I took a ton more interest. Now I rarely watch the Lakeside until the final.

You all say that, but he won 4-1, hit the highest checkout, scored the most 180's and landed a 92 average. :lol: That'll be good enough to beat 90% of the field.

Playing like this he has absolutely no chance against MVG mind. I'd still fancy him to beat Wade/Lewis etc. because they mentally go to bits against him the majority of the time. He still has the game to make a quarter of a million each year so I'd say he'll stick around for a bit yet.

He averaged about 94 throughout the whole tournament. That would compete with/be better than 60/70% of the throwers in the PDC now, and probably 90% of them around the time he did it. The averages are not as good in the PDC as everyone believes. MVG himself has only started posting 100+ the last year or so. Before that it was extremely rare with the majority coming from a man called Phil.

Obviously the PDC has the higher standard, I can't deny that, but the BDO is a lot better than people think. Look at Glen Durrant last year, who is the #1 BDO player. 96, 98, 95, 99. That's quality. It's a shame he wasn't playing in the Grand Slam.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Andymc1 on Tuesday 29 December 2015, 11:16:32 AM
I probably am a little harsh on the BDO but when was the last time a player made a switch and then went on to win a major? As for Bunting, he started off well but he hasn't got the game in the head to compete in the PDC. He'll never win a PDC major in my opinion.

I think most of my frustration is with those who run it though. There seems to be a severe lack of effort to get promising TV deals, sponsors and good venues.

Look at the Finder Masters the other week. 5 thousand euro for the winner - about £3.5k. That's absolutely pathetic. The top dogs at the BDO still like to think they're on a level playing field with the PDC but until they realise they're second best, they'll never be able to move forward.

Glen Durrant doesn't particularly want to switch as he wants to continue his day job in social housing. In my opinion, he is the only one consistent enough to play at a similar level to Bunting in the PDC. He wouldn't be up there with the top players, but he could make himself a good living.

The best example is to look at the most recent players to make the switch. James Wilson and Robbie Green were ranked 2nd and 3rd in the BDO world rankings after the 2014 worlds. They have brought nothing to the PDC table at all and that's the norm for those who switch. There is, of course, the odd exception but the norm is that the BDO players who switch, are nowhere near good enough for the PDC.

Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Tuesday 29 December 2015, 11:30:28 AM
You say that like not winning a major is some disastrous. How many major winners has there actually been in the PDC? Since the Worlds started in '94 there has only been 7 different winners, and 3 of those have been in the last 4 years. I'd say there has only been about 15 major winners in the entire history of the PDC, and Scott Waites won the Grand Slam as a BDO player (and the final the year after I think).

I don't think Wilson is good enough like. Kong has the game but doesn't have the head, but he was a PDC player for years before going back to the BDO anyway.

The norm is that most of the top players in the PDC are BDO players who have switched, so the comment that those who switch aren't good enough, baffles me. After all, MVG was BDO. :lol: With the exception of our very own Brendan Dolan, Taylor, Michael Smith and basically Adrian Lewis, everyone in the top 20 are movers from the BDO, and a lot of them within the last 10 years or less.

You say that like not winning a major is some disastrous. How many major winners has there actually been in the PDC? Since the Worlds started in '94 there has only been 7 different winners, and 3 of those have been in the last 4 years. I'd say there has only been about 15 major winners in the entire history of the PDC, and Scott Waites won the Grand Slam as a BDO player (and the final the year after I think).

I don't think Wilson is good enough like. Kong has the game but doesn't have the head, but he was a PDC player for years before going back to the BDO anyway.

The norm is that most of the top players in the PDC are BDO players who have switched, so the comment that those who switch aren't good enough, baffles me. After all, MVG was BDO. With the exception of our very own Brendan Dolan, Taylor, Michael Smith and basically Adrian Lewis, everyone in the top 20 are movers from the BDO, and a lot of them within the last 10 years or less.

Those top players nearly all switched quite a while ago. It's the current state of the BDO that is the problem which is underlined by the state of the recent switchers. Bunting wiped the floor in his last BDO year - he's came over to PDC and it's been pretty clear that he is never going to be a top PDC player (he's ranked 17 and I don't class that as a 'top' player; a top player should be reaching quarters, semis and finals imo).

Out of the current BDO players, who do you think could successfully make the switch? My opinion is that the best player in the BDO, Durrant, would be at a similar level to Bunting i.e not offering a lot, getting to the odd quarter final whilst never really threatening the best.

This King v Klaasen game has been steady mind, two ex BDO players :lol:

You're contradicting yourself so much man. :lol: Bunting has reached three major quarters and two major semis in his first year while climbing into the Worlds top 16. :lol: I actually didn't think Bunting would do so well himself like but I was wrong. He won the Worlds in his last year with the BDO as well but he by no means wiped the floor.

If getting to the worlds top 16 isn't being a top player then there's no point continuing this anyway. At the end of the day the PDC will continue to be breached by players who have made their way through the rankings in the BDO. Maybe the guys who came over recently aren't too hot but year after year good players will come through. It's only a few years since the likes of Chizzy came over and got as high as 5 in the World after all.

Also yes, Smith is class. Future world champion for sure.

Right, let's start again.

The BDO, in its current form, is the worst the BDO has ever been. Personally, I can't see the talent coming though like it used to as the PDC are pumping big prize money into the PDC Youth Tour.

Can we just talk about how good Smith was just now? :lol:

I've had a bit of a year off from the darts in 2015 but the bits I've seen it's clear he's lost his aura of invincibility. He's also never taken criticism well so put the two together and your left with some odd answers in interviews. I still oddly think he can do it for one last time but it looks a case of now or never again.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: MKSC on Wednesday 30 December 2015, 04:28:02 PM
He's always been a bit of an odd one. Obviously supremely talented at what he does but there have been a lot of stories about him behind the scenes. I've always thought of him as extremely arrogant and found him very patronising with the way he talks to/about other players. I can't see him facing the end of his career with much dignity.

Haven't seen any of the matches so far this year. Sounds like it's been decent. Hope Klaasen wins tonight.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Wednesday 30 December 2015, 04:31:37 PM
I'm just remembering when I met him for the first time I was only a kid and he was a bit s***. He cancelled his exhibition as well for some reason despite actually being at the venue earlier in the day. Can only imagine it was money related. Used to love him. Think he's a bit of a dick now.

He's still the greatest ever and will never be touched in terms of titles. He had a level that nobody has been able to match and will most likely never match. Even now when people are saying he is done he is hitting 90+ averages. He is a danger always. His odds are mental given MVG is out.

What a great couple of nights darts. The MvG/RvB game, Chisnall/Wright and now Klaasen/Taylor - 3 of the best games this whole year. Superb stuff - and even though Mardle talks s**** 99% of the time, I have to agree with him that there is absolutely nothing between the top players now. Most of them can beat each other on any stage.

I always back Wade and i think the winner of that match will go on to win it.

Lewis should be in the final now though, I just can't stand him.

Can't stand Lewis but always back Wade? Yeah now I remember why I dislike you.

Anyway, obviously Taylor isn't the easiest guy to support out there but it's never nice watching a great sportsman gradually decline towards mediocrity. I know he's still one of the best in the world but he looks nowhere near the Phil that won this 3 years ago. Sad.

Depends on where his finishing is at. If he can start to polish off three figure finishes with more regularity then his scoring is certainly high enough.

It's going to be an excellent final few days. In fact it has been one of the most competitive tournaments that I can remember.

Smith is unreal like, but just has these lapses in concentration every now and then that will cost him against the top players. Needs a little bit more time to mature IMO, but he's a future multiple world champion. His scoring is just insane.

He had 122 so the best route is to go for T18 first dart, because if you hit it you have 68 left, so big 18 and bull. If you hit another T18 you have D7 left. Smith hit T18 but the dart landed awkwardly. For some unknown reason he decided to move on the oche and go for another T18 to leave D7 instead of just guaranteeing a shot at the bull by hitting single 18. He missed the 18 altogether and hit a 4, and cost himself a dart to save the match. Barney hit 32 to win then.

Very silly mistake. The reason you go the 18 route for 122 in the first place is because you don't need two trebles. He may as well have went for 20's.

I've had a pint with him and I can tell you he is a really nice bloke. A few years back he was at a charity event organised by Gary Anderson up here. He was sat at our table and he honestly wouldn't let anyone else go to the bar. He was buying in rounds for the table despite the fact that none of us knew him personally.

Pub based game is the reason really. Glen Durrant is in North Ormesby Working Mens Club every other day practicing - I'm not sure most players when they get together for a practice end up going to their pub/club but it's the norm amongst those I've come across who have tour cards.

Most of them can't play without drink. The amount of pints that get sunk at darting events by the players is ridiculous. Whitlock drinks a full bottle of whiskey before he plays. There's a younger generation coming through now though and a lot of them don't really drink and they're not fat c***s. :lol: Joe Cullen an example.

Yep. I played for his old team when I was out in Australia and a few of the people on the side still know him personally. He was always very fond of the drink.

Would have a good 6 or 7 pints myself before playing. Usually a few bottles when I'm on the practice board before I head to the club as well.

Depends what you mean by young talent. De Vos is actually my pick to win it this year but he's mid thirties. If you include him you'd have to say Jim Williams and Wesley Harms too. Jamie Hughes probably the best young player.

If Anderson is in the same form as last night then it takes a 90's Taylor to beat him. 47% checkouts with a 107 average is almost unbeatable. Lewis certainly wouldn't beat it. I highly doubt he'll replicate it though. We'll be looking at 99-102 for both players with around 40% on the checkouts. I do think they'll break the record for the most 180's ever though, which is 32.

You could physically see both of them weren't particularly pleased at how they were playing. Neither player could keep the heat up for a sustained period of time. Anderson deserved to win but he won without being near his best.

It was hardly a classic final even though they broke the 180 record but with their ability to hammer the treble 20, was hardly surprising they did it without being at the top of their game.

Froggy, there is no defending the BDO in its current form.

They need to remove the word "professional"  from the competition. Rename it County Finals or something, but this is not at the level of professional darts. Some of the averages this week are similar to what I achieve.

On another note, it's being reported that North Shields finest, Kevin Mcdine, has wrapped in his PDC tour card and is going over to the BDO. Strange decision but then again, he's better than most of these muppets and would have a good chance of going far at Lakeside 17.

I really don't know where the BDO goes from here.

Nah. He got to the final of the Grand Slam in 2009 losing to Taylor and then came back the following year and won it against Wade despite being 8-0 down. He's a quality player and did what he had to do last night.

So, where do tomorrows Taylor, MVG, Anderson etc come from if the grass roots is put out to grass?

It baffles me how casual fans don't realise what will happen if the BDO collapses. The PDC costs a complete fortune to compete in. It would kill the game.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Andymc1 on Monday 11 January 2016, 11:49:53 AM
I'm not a casual fan. I watch my local superleague team (in the BDO setup!), I watch Tyne and Wear county and I follow both codes tournaments all year around.

I understand the BDO has produced a lot of players in the past - it's the BDOs reluctance to accept their position that annoys me. They shouldn't be allowed to call it a professional darts championship for a start -  there is nothing professional about it. The main men and women running the BDO are stuck in the 80s and people like Paula Jacklin fiddling the rules to allow her county mate Sam Hewson in ahead of Anderson the Danish bloke who hadn't broke any rule set out by the WDF.

I mentioned it a week or two back but it should be renamed the County Finals. Use the county system as the grassroots of the game and stop pretending it's professional.

Also, the PDC Youth Tour is getting stronger and stronger. I fully expect a lot of the top 16 in 15 year time to be made up of players from the Youth Tour.

As for the cost, it's the biggest myth of all time. The PDC events are almost exclusively held in the UK. It's the BDO that has the cost of flying to the arse end of Europe for Romanian Opens etc for very little prize money. You pay a few hundred quid to get a tour card but after that, the cost will be smaller than the BDO as the events are closer. It's easy enough to use cheap hotels as well.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Monday 11 January 2016, 12:05:02 PM
It's no myth man. :lol: Every players championship costs £100 to enter, that's after paying the £250 or whatever it is just to enter Q school. I'm good friends with a number of PDC professionals like. I know for a fact every one of them was scared of moving over too soon and going broke within a year. The PDC needs the BDO. The PDC Youth Tour is certainly a step by the PDC to try and eliminate that, but it's a long way away. The BDO is an affordable way for professionals and indeed amatuers to get the experience they need before attempting to enter the PDC.

http://pdc-darts.co.uk/2016-pdc-qualifying-school-entries/

That is a decent read regarding the cost.

I can't see how the BDO is affordable but the PDC isn't. The cost of flying around Europe for a year just can't be cheap. Also, a players championship event may cost £100 to enter, but win one game and you get £250.

I can imagine there is a little bit of worrying about moving over but those who are good enough have the potential to earn serious money in the PDC. How do you think Mitchell would do for example if he moved? He says he's 80% sure he'll stay in the BDO mind.

The first round of a Players Champ event is the last 128 so you aren't always going to get a top player. My point is, if you're any good and have the belief, there is definitely more pros than cons on the PDC tour.

A lad from my local went once and ended up losing the last game which would have gave him a tour card. I think he would have struggled mind as he averages between 25 and 28 when playing county.

Did you never look into getting sponsorship? I know Gary Anderson sponsors a few lads from round here and one of them, Chris Dobey, put up a good fight on TV debut against Terry Jenkins in the World Series a few month back.

Evison was a right cockend . Whether he played on it or not, I don't know, but if he did, he was a f***ing excellent actor.

"The announcement is likely to come as a hammer blow for the BDO, who recently cancelled their new Players Championship event due to poor ticket sales and failure to find a broadcast partner."

My teammate just won his tour card at Q School. Probably the best player in our league but still a huge achievement.

Played his first tournaments at the UK Open qualifiers. Lost in the first round all three days. Cost him £400 before alcohol. Unless you play incredible darts the PDC will break you.

:thup: The "organisers" of the whole Billingsgate debacle look like complete and utter amateurs. The BDO have nothing left, they have absolutely nothing to offer professional darts. It's now the time for the WDF to take over the amateur side of the game and allow county darts to continue for the good pub players. The PDC should be left to continue their excellent professional running of the pro game and darts will be better served.

Clowns like Sue Williams should be nowhere near a position of power in an organisation that remarkably still manages to claim that it runs a pro world championships. The fact that there is likely to be no terrestrial tv coverage of their "world pro" marks the beginning of the end for me.

The last BDO tournament was in Holland for the Dutch Open. Local player and Tyne & Wear county player, Kevin McDine, entered and done really well to reach the last 4 of the singles (out of a field of around 3000!) - he also reached the last 4 of the pairs. Now, let's work out the costs should he have lost in the first round both times (a situation that some  travelling players will have encountered). He's had to travel to Holland and back (circa £150 return flights and transfers?), he had to book accommodation for 3/4 nights probably at a cost of roughly £50 per night. Before entry costs we're already looking at £300/£350 outlay. It really isn't that much cheaper to do the BDO tour.

Remember, almost every PDC tournament is UK based and has lucrative prize money. It's the BDO who go to the arse end of Europe to play for peanuts.

I suppose you sum it up well though. The elite, "incredible", darts players will prosper and the rest will find their place in the amateur side of the game that hopefully the WDF will sort out once the BDO go to the wall. Baring in mind that BDO Events Ltd has now been registered for 2 years and according to companies house, the company currently runs at a loss of £386k . The whole BDO model is now totally unsustainable.

:lol: Pure guesswork man, and it infuriates me. It's about £18-20 a night for a hotel/hostel, not £50, and if you're booking with a number of people you can get it even cheaper. You stay in Groningen and get the bus down to Assen, which is f*** all. It's £70 return to Amsterdam (sometimes less), not £150, if you book early and want to get the train to Groningen, which is just under two hours and is good craic when you're boozing with other players. You stated entry fees as well. They aren't £50-100 like the PDC. It might be more now but I think the Dutch Open was £9.

I know this, because I've played in it.

The travel, accommodation and entry fee into most BDO tournaments is normally in and around £100-150. Let's not forget you're going to Belgium, Germany, Holland etc. and not f***ing Wigan.

That being said the BDO is running itself into the ground. It should have accepted Hearn's buyout offer a few years ago. It's run by dinosaurs, but it's still necessary.

How can you not like The Bronzed Adonis? Always a steady player who doesn't get flustered. Will rarely average 100+ and therefore loses to most of the top 16 but if you underperform against him he'll take you out. He has done well to get to the quarters, winning me a few quid in the process, but it's far as he'll go as he has Anderson next.

Aye, I think Anderson will win comfortably. Anderson is still 3/1 to win this event and he's had the better of MVG the last couple of times so think I'll have a few quid on him to win it.

Aye with no set play Anderson and MVG are clear favourites. I actually fancy Anderson as well but they're both capable of reeling off 5-10 legs and blowing their opponent away which makes it tricky to bet on one or the other when they play.

Michael Smith is a cracking darts player when it comes to big scoring, but the mental aspect of his game is very poor though IMO which is why he often struggles with doubles. I wasn't all that surprised about the comeback from Wade tbh.

He's still young and will improve with experience but really needs to work on his mindset to improve as a player now. You constantly see him getting flustered and stropping whenever things aren't quite going his way, this is what seperates him from the big boys and why he got completely shown up in the Premier League this year.

Looking forward to it myself. Darts is darts, just like boxing fans will watch some smaller hall domestic cards on Boxnation rather than just the hyped up Sky Joshua PPV cards. Just like I won't turn my nose up at Portsmouth vs Doncaster in League 2 on Sky on Thursday. Also, 28 of the players who reached the PDC last 32 all started their careers in the BDO - only Darren Webster, Smith, Reyes and Cullen didn't. 5 of the BDO boys got through the group stages at the Grand Slam 2 months ago and I'm sure we'll see the likes of Durrant and Noppert in the latter stages of PDC tournaments in coming years. So a lot of the players we see next week will be much more familiar to the mass market, or p*ssed up football fans in a couple of years, but of course at this current moment they are 's****' as they play in the BDO.

Ah the old casual fans slaughtering the BDO. :lol: Never gets old. Quite easy to forget that if Hearn didn't pump his money into the PDC that the BDO would be ridiculously dominant. Almost everybody starts there. It's not even that long ago that the likes of MvG and Anderson were in the BDO.

BDO is good for the amateur side of the game, PDC for the professional players.

I like watching both but the BDO board are absolutely pathetic. They do their members a disservice by constantly f***ing up.

With the BDO getting worse, year by year, and the PDC progressing, I think the darting landscape will look different again in another 10 years.

You've hit the nail on the head there like. BDO refusing Hearns buy out offer was a mistake. They've hired a promotional company and got a bit more sponsorship but if that fails in ten years there won't be a BDO.

Agree totally with regards to Taylor, keeps saying this is his last year but it's hard to believe.  He's played a pivotal role in the rise of darts but he's turning more and more into a c*** as the competition gets better. :thup:

Wade and Lewis have been average for months so it wasn't too much of a surprise tbh. I've watched a fair few tournaments this year and the chasing pack are definitely catching up with the older generation. There's only five stand out world class players imo and after that I wouldn't want to pick the rest.

MVG, Anderson, Gurney, Wright, Suljovic probably the only five I'd not want to bet against no matter who the opponent.

I suggest you have a read about what he has said about other players over the last year and indeed this tournament about Barney and Cross. You'll revisit the 'not particularly likeable' description. He's a c*** of the highest order, and in the PDC the crowd gets on your back for it.

Van Gerwen was a crowd favourite. The crowd was on his side for years. He has nobody to blame but himself.

I fancy Taylor to take it tomorrow. A lot of people talking like he's a shell of his former self which is a load of rubbish too. He's been averaging around 100 and checking out with a 50% hit rate lately. That's vintage Taylor.

I’ll take your word for it but doesn’t really change anything for me. No matter how much of a c*** someone is I’ll never agree with trying to put them off in a sport where concentration and focus play a big part. Cheer for the other guy instead.

As for your last part, I suppose the thing is that the rest of the top players have caught up with Phil in terms of their scoring. Cross has averaged 100+ in three of his five games and 99.7 in another one. Taylor may not be a shell of his former self but he’s not the near invincible force he once was. I do fancy him to win but Cross should be able to give him a game.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Sunday 31 December 2017, 12:51:22 AM
You'll have to wait until I get on to a laptop for that but aye that's one of them. He was beating Whitlock in a game and during one of the breaks he text Van der Voort saying the game was over.

Barney said in an interview nothing to do with MvG in this tournament he didn't play his A game and MvG attacked it for no reason essentially saying that is his A game and he has never seen Barney do better and then referenced him hammering Barney last year.

In his last interview he was asked about Cross and how well he's playing and he basically said yeah but he's never beat me has he. That's just this week, and when you say stuff like that you encourage booing and support for your opponent.

He has zero respect. It'll all be online in post match interviews. Since he became the best he became incredibly arrogant and aggressive towards players that have achieved greater things than he has. He was asked about Taylors title haul and said if he played until he was 57 he'd beat it easily. Just a prick. It goes unnoticed quite often because Taylor usually makes a bigger dick of himself.

What's he said like?

A few months back MVG, not sure what tournament but he texted a friend (might have been Van Der Voort) that he was going to beat, i think Whitlock during the break in their game. Apparently a really dismissive and nasty message, basically disrespecting Whitlock for no real reason other then he was better than him, something along those lines.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Froggy on Sunday 31 December 2017, 03:43:52 PM
Some quotes from Van Gerwen today:

"I think this is just his year. He had the luck going for him. It’s that simple. Those doubles were so close on the wire. I’m sick about that. Normally that doesn’t happen to me and I’m the only one to blame for it."

Cross missed match darts first you dick.

“I hate losing, especially on this tournament. I think I was better than Rob but on the important moments I could bring something extra. But missing these doubles was extremely painful. There was nothing I could do about it.”

No you weren't better. The match was over 11 sets. The better player won. Just give people credit where it's due. Cross hit his doubles and you didn't.

The betting has this almost 50/50 and I’d go with that. Despite what he’ll say Taylor will be nervous as a kitten. He’s been hitting doubles really well but if Cross starts well and doesn’t let the occasion get to him I can see him winning. Taylor will do his best to get in his head and will no doubt play to the crowd. I hope Taylor wins, he’s transformed darts for all players and as much as he’s a knob at times there’s no denying his brilliance.

Still no John Lowe mind or Smith & Jones for that matter 🍺

Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Incognito on Monday 1 January 2018, 10:21:37 PM
Immense wasn't he. There looks to be a bright future for darts.  Cross, MVG, maybe young Lewis, Gurney, Van Den Bergh.  That's some young talent to fight amongst themselves. Battles everywhere plus your Wrights,  Barney, Adrian Lewis if he can recover, Gary Anderson. Can't wait for premier league now.
Title: Re: The Darts
Post by: Pilko on Monday 1 January 2018, 10:27:27 PM
Cross was absolutely f***ing immense tonight, just totally focused and as good at scoring as he is at finishing. So glad to see him absolutely school that classless c*** Taylor on his farewell appearance, perfect stuff.

Interested to see the PL lineup. I reckon:

Certainties: MvG, Anderson, Wright, Cross, Gurney, Barney, Suljovic
Contenders: Wade, Chisnall, Smith, Whitlock, A.Lewis, van den Bergh, J.Lewis

From the bottom list I reckon it'll be Smith, Jackpot and Chizzy.

Knows exactly what he's doing with this s*** like. He'd be the first crying about disrespect if someone was doing this to him.

I'm glad other people have picked up on this as well. Because of who he is, the commentators didn't say diddly-squat about it, and Cross was still very deferential at the end.

I started off rooting for Taylor, but when Cross nailed that final finish, I cheered out loud.

Just the usual Price nonsense. Deliberately slowing down before collecting his darts, over celebrating, getting right in Anderson's face. Basically anything he could get away with to put his opponent off which is what he's been doing all week.

Didn't help himself afterwards. Just showed a lack of respect to everyone really. "Punching money from the professional's pockets."

Title: Re: The Darts

Thing is, MVG basically does the exact same thing and gets very little stick because of it for some reason. I don't think Price did anything that bad UNTIL Anderson reacted, and then he knew he had him rattled and played up on it. The very best players learn how to deal with it. Anderson is arguably the most naturally gifted player to ever do it, but he gets riled up very, very easily and falls to pieces.

JDZ will be in the top 5 within another three or four years like. He's exceptional already, just needs more experience of pressure on the big stage.

Cross in those last few sets was the guy who won the Worlds last year suddenly arriving again after a fairly poor year. Can't write him off at all.

My outside bets this year are Mensur and Wade fwiw.

He needs to stop that s**** now and just go back to some darts he feels comfortable with. Could also do without dressing like santa etc and just concentrate on darts. He's a bit of a strange one in that he was never a top player until he was around 40 year old, and to me it doesn't look like he's going to last too long at the top.

Two North East lads started well. Ryan Joyce plays in my cricket club on a Monday and a Wednesday - he's absolutely brilliant and really humble. I was talking to him last week and he has a confidence in his ability without being arrogant - would really like to see him have a long run in this tournament and get some life changing money. Plays Alan Norris tomorrow, the bookies have Joyce a slight favourite!

Also Chris Dobey is getting the job done. Two solid wins and a winnable game next up against VVdV. He's in the difficult half of the draw and will likely play Gary Anderson if he beat VVdV.

Great to have local players to support though as it's been a few year since we had anyone up here to get behind.

Best of 5 in the singles so can often be just the 3 legs :thup:

PDC increasing the field size isn't going to help the quality really, and something I don't think they should have brought in. The biggest problem going forward for the BDO is that they've changed the rules so that their players can try Q school and come back without sanction if unsuccessful. This is going to result in almost every single half decent player in the BDO system giving Q school a go.

That youth final was probably the best watch of the week so far ...

I think he will do reasonably well but winning PC4 is absolutely not proof that he can cut it. There's a whole host of PC winners over the years who've done reasonably OK but nothing special. Stephen Bunting had a similar bounce when he moved over but it wasn't sustainable against the level of competition in the PDC. Long way to go to see if Durrant can maintain his good start.

Glen Durrant has just won his first PDC ranking event at the fourth time of asking. Think you can safely say now he can cut it!!!

Did anyone really think he wouldn't be able to? Aside from the "lol BDO darts is so bad" casual crew. :lol:

I think he will do reasonably well but winning PC4 is absolutely not proof that he can cut it. There's a whole host of PC winners over the years who've done reasonably OK but nothing special. Stephen Bunting had a similar bounce when he moved over but it wasn't sustainable against the level of competition in the PDC. Long way to go to see if Durrant can maintain his good start.

Stephen Bunting is ranked 17th in the world with £200k+ in the order of merit. :lol:

Aye, that's why I liken him to Durrant in that I think he will do reasonably well. I firmly believe Durrant won't win a PDC Major, just as Bunting hasn't in his first 5 years.

That really doesn't mean he can't keep up with PDC players though. How many people have actually won a major since the PDC was formed. 20? Probably around 10 in the last 10 years.

Both players mentioned how knackered they were. Maybe it's a bit more draining to do the QF/SF/F on the same day at the larger venue, as opposed to when it was at the Reebok?

Aye I don't agree with all 3 in the same day. They'll probably change it for next year.

Or maybe not. Sounds like he may be re-considering. I hope he sticks with his original decision, it's clearly taking a toll on him mentally and physically.

Lewis will never win a major title again. He's done at the elite level imo. Froggys gonna hate me for saying that too. :lol:

Can't see him winning a televised major myself. He played well yesterday though. Duzza was just sublime.

Gurney and Wright both absolutely exceptional tonight.

Snakey landing that 164 out early doors won him that match, could see the confidence oozing from him after that. Quality.

Bully Boy edging past Hopp earlier despite some absolutely chod finishing.

Wade v Mensur is shaping up to be very entertaining too!

Been a class Matchplay so far this.

The "bDo is s*** lolz" crowd were awful quiet last night when MVG was turfed out by Duzza. Great to see.

Gary was pathetic last night, got no bottle these days.

Durrant was spectacular. You usually see MvG play poorly and eke out a win as he capitalises on mistakes, but Duzza just didn't make any. Blows the field wide open.

Anyone been to the darts at Utilita Arena? Considering going there for the Premier League game in March, but there are only tickets left in the upper tier, wondering if it's worth going anyway or if you're miles off both atmosphere and the darts itself.

I'm not. 9/2 winner on Young. Barney would have achieved a lot more in his latter career if he wasn't so mentally weak.

That prick Smith out aswell. Some proper shocks already, wonder if the 'lesser' players have an advantage of playing a game before playing the big guns, in their first match, in the second round.

Suzuki was unlucky last night an'all, think she just went to bits when she had a real chance.

Smith's a prick for being as good as he is and having never won a proper tourney like. Frustrating as hell to watch.

Gurney at 33/1 was my outside pick for the tourney.

I think Dolan will do Gary Anderson tonight too, some decent odds around for that.

Hope you're right about Dolan but can't see it at all.

Know Keane Barry well too. He was smashing the seasoned local players where I'm from when he was 11/12 years old. Cracking player.

You can get 33/1 for Dolan match treble in some places, seems wildly long that.
