Disappointed in the deletion of my wee darting anecdote by a mod (BWV?) but I accept that my language in description of one particular darts player could be seen as inappropriate.
 

It wasn't me on this occasion, but, in the spirit of mod solidarity, I should say that calling someone "paedo" isn't really on tbh. Even if it is Phil Taylor.

"Sex pest" is more accurate.

I accept this. 

In my defence......

 

Na f**k it, you all know what my defence is. 

I will use your version in future though as the mod approved Phil Taylor slur.

Feel Taylor acceptable?

The contenders idea was nice on short notice, but it's unnecessary this year so I hope they don't. Adrian Lewis has been pish, deserves to be nowhere near it. James Wade finished 3rd in the table last time so it would be crazy to drop him.
He has, but sky have an obsession with "Jackpot".

If I could have anybody I'd have Steve Beaton. Wouldn't mind him in the premier league either.

I never got the Scholten one, does he just have a massive boaby or is there a darts thing in there?
 
I always thought it was just because he was really tall, skinny and stood quite straight. Probably was just the boaby

MVG in the final and has been poor everytime bar than Bunting match. If he plays like he does tonight, Wright will beat him.
Unfortunately he will raise his game and Wright will do his usual final bottle job.
Love the darts over the period, gutted when it finishes

It has become a punchline. BDO scores etc.

PDC is about getting pished over Christmas/New Years. BDO is dry January. Or the bad hangover of darts.

Mid 2000s when Barney left and the PDC prize money went above the BDO was the end for them. Been on life support for close to a decade.

Gary Anderson to withdraw and Fallon Sherrock in for PL.

Aye, as we were talking about on Saturday, I don't think we will see Anderson in the Premier League unless he's offered a massive amount of money. He doesn't have the same fire in his belly now that he's won his World titles and the Premier League. He doesn't enjoy the travel involved in the Premier League and I think he'll take a lot of convincing to play in it year on year. 

Onto tonight's action, I'm glad we're all absolutely delighted to see that roided up arsehole get battered about the oche. I'm not a huge fan of Wright but I was right behind him tonight. For some reason I've warmed to MVG over the last wee while, possibly as a result of all the Little Englander arseholes in the crowd giving him stick. The crowds at darts have definitely got worse over the last few years. I've never went to the darts, when I do go I reckon I'll go to Aberdeen for the Premier League or Dublin for the Grand Prix. The Premier League in Glasgow's just a nedfest. 

I don't really mind who wins the final tomorrow, hopefully it's a cracker.

Price making an arse of it on twitter this morning.

Clearly lost, scudded a few jars. and posted this shite at 2.30am, woke up, sobered up, and deleted it.

Absolute walloper

When you read that, it looks like they're done for.

Yep, end game rapidly approaching. It's sad, because the BDO could in theory still work as a 'bridge' for very good semi-pro throwers who work full time and don't necessarily fancy the all-in or bust Darwinism of the PDC. They've been crippled by poor decisions at board level, and the one USP that they did have in my opinion (Lakeside) is now gone. 2/3 years and the BDO is either gone, absorbed or reformed beyond recognition.

Gerwyn 'Little Man syndrome' Price. Another one that can it give it out but can't take it back.

Nice to see Snakebite in the final but if he had nine darts to win the title against MVG, I wouldn't have any real confidence in him hitting his double.

I never understood the media hard-on for Price during this tournament. His averages on the whole were poor and most of the time he is no more than bang average.

Sherrock withdraws from BDO Championship.

Good for her. I said previously that the PDC has done more for her career in the space of a week than the BDO has ever done.

The BDO under Des Jacklin is an amateurish joke, doomed to failure. I feel sorry for players traipsing across Britain and Europe for a year trying to win enough points to take part in this mess.

He played well against Henderson and Durrant and was average-poor against O'Connor, Whitlock & Wright.

He's definitely a top five player at the moment and the media like him because he does stupid things a lot of the time. If you can be an idiot but win a lot in sport then you'll be a big star.

I wonder if the venue change has put people off, with the added expense/hassle of travelling into London rather than free parking at Lakeside. Whatever the reason, it seems to be a huge drop off in ticket sales.

I can see it ending up like a similar set up to golf, with the PDC controlling everything and a system similar to golf with the European Tour/Challenge Tour.

The downgrading of the BDO's status by the world darts federation to Associate member was probably the final straw.
