It's is a great idea. Problem is the control over the quality of the management for the events. Needs to be a company they can trust.
They have had problems in Japan with this before. And don't seem to be returning there.
And end of the day you are expecting mostly the same players to be flying to the other side of the globe regularly 6 times a year.

Idiots who make the claim that players are developed by one side or the other. As if the BDO can somehow be justified and given credit for the sucess of certain players because they once played in that code. This is like giving credit to a world class track star first grade teacher because she let them run around the school yard during recess.

The BDO or the PDC for that matter didn't train the players didn't require they show up at the training grounds for practice. Doesnt provide them coaches or nutritionist. The players do it on their own. The code just provides opportunities to compete. Off course the PDC provides more and better paid opportunities. Meaning that player can be a full time player and dedicate more time to being a quality player. Meanwhile back in the BDO players time away from darts has to be used in useful employment like hanging doors, painting fences, bothering livestock, waiting for the dole check.

From TSOD:
Seeing that virtually all of Fanatics seem to think it's in the same arena as the Premier League then it's probably needed 😂
How removed from reality are these people? Even the PDC couldn't run their entire world championship at the main O2 arena.

That's very true.
One problem with the pro thing and high prize money in pdc events is that alot of the top players seem to be stagnating the fatter they get ?
This comment wont meet with universal opinion but I think its true.

Well you have certainly found an appropriate thread to air your opinions Nigel...

I think you are obsessed with the St Helens lads who carry a bit too much weight and don't win much.

I personally think they are 2 separate issues. Being overweight hasn't stopped Taylor and MvG dominating the game. The history of darts does lend itself to either 1 or 2 players at a time being completely dominant, therefore the other players in the Top 10 will always struggle to win much.

I think you're right about Bellyboy though, a lazy fucker who looks like he'll never reach his potential. How much of that is related to how much money he can make out of the game without winning a Major is hard to say, but he certainly is making good money just doing what he is.

I think Bunting has done well in the PDC. He got put into the PL too soon due to being overrated, but his results over the last couple of years are OK and he is about where he should be now. Similarly Chizzy has been up and down but has won 16 PDC titles, and may have picked up a major if not for Taylor and MvG always being there. He has made the most of his potential.

If you want to keep harping on about it, fine. But don't be surprised if people get a bit sick of hearing it.

Being overweight never stopped Lewis from winning 2 World Champions either.

Smith made 200k in one night for being in the final of the World's this year. That's more than most would make in almost 10 years.
He'll always be alright for a few quid. Don't even think he's in his 30's yet, so he'll be around for a long time.

I think whoever runs the BDO (I'm not sure anymore) need to grow some and tell the PDC it's there picks and if they dint like it pull the 8 players. I'm sure Sky would soon be into and asks what happening as they cant sell it to the general.public as a cross code event if no BDO players.

Absolutely disappointing with the selections but I did call it apart from Waites being dropped which I think is a oversight and they now worrying about this from what I heard.

Things ain't getting better, Things are getting worse.
The BDO advised to go in high with both feet, there.

The "Duzza Route" ffs how many went this way before Duzza? certainly every world champ that went over to the WDC in 1993, to name a few.
Secondly a route to be admired? yes admire stupid fucks that waste the best years of their dart career fucking all over the place playing useless piss poor payout of events and dealing with a completely useless system in the BDO darts that has been on its last leg for more than a few years now.

I've heard him comment a couple of times that he's stopped punting on the darts now, good move from him if so cos while he has darts knowledge without doubt it was always clear when hearing him talk he has no clue about betting or odds.

Madsocks on the BDO Masters fiasco:
If this was the PDC, no-one would bat an eyelid. Put it down to some error or something and wave it off. However, as it’s the BDO, everyone jumps on the bandwagon. It’s boring.

Yes there have been problems, yes they have been looked at and rightly so, Jacklin is resigning at the end of the year. He’s promised stuff that hasn’t materialised so it’s time for someone else to take the reigns and get the BDO back up there.
Is he serious? If the PDC put fake names into a draw, had a re-draw, and then had their leader put it all down to a "bad day", they would be rightfully mocked for it.

Most of the PDC’s sponsors are betting companies. They would scatter at any sign of cheating.
