We are also men who get hard watching men essentially throw sticks at a board, some would accuse us of following a pointless passtime.



At least the best players win at darts.

Give anyone with some driving ability a Mercedes and they would win the world title.


Exactly, it's not a level playing field


Not quite as simple as that. The difference between a good and bad driver can be 1.5 seconds a lap in the same car. Hamiltons teammate is third in the championship in the same car.

And if the best players win at darts, how comes Bunting hasn't won anything of note in the PDC?


Would Hamilton win in one of the lesser cars?


Of course he wouldn't.
He is in the best car though because he's one of the best drivers.
Anyway this doesn't make it any more of a contest.

^If he was in one of the other top 3 teams it would be possible.Anything lower than that, no chance. Three teams have won races this season.

But they have the constructors championship to acknowledge the teams performance too. Drivers tend to have to earn their way up to the top teams by impressing in the smaller teams and beating their teammate.

It's a circular argument anyway. Would Pep Guardiola be topping the Premier league if he was in charge of Burnley? Of course not, but he has shown excellence in his earlier management career to get the best teams.

Horseriding, Ruby Walsh tended tonget the best horses because he was the best jockey.

It's a sport I like anyway, those speeds are dangerous. It's only a few years since a driver last died in a race.

God you're stubborn :D . People like what they like I guess. Millions of Americans watch padded up ex crims kick a funny shaped ball into touch and stop for 5 minutes.

I just prefer level platform competition.
Not relying on engines, horses or money to an extent.
Just one on one.

The fact that T20 has ruined the sport.

Wrestling is the faggiest sport in the world. We need to get that thread going again just for D'artagnan.

It's still relying on individual performance without outside aid.

Bollocks. T20 is what draws the crowds. You and Randall sound like the old BDO farts moaning about the PDC ruining the game. :D

It's totally changed the dynamic of test cricket.
Add that to the stupid over protection of batsman and its just not the same.

Except for a string of experts behind the scenes analysing their weaknesses and tweaking technique. And the ever increasing bat thickness allowing mishits to go for 6?

Technology and rule changes have made for an uneven game.
Who'd be a bowler?
