No regrets about deciding to stay in the BDO for Middlesbrough darts star Glen Durrant
https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/oth ... o-10750602
18th January 2016


Glen Durrant insists he has made the right decision to ignore his critics and remain in the BDO following his gut-wrenching Lakeshite World Championship quarter-final defeat to Scott Waites.

Tournament favourite Duzza took a bit of a social media bashing after the Waites loss.

Trolls stuck the boot into Middlesbrough’s BDO No 1 for failing to cash in on a 4-2 lead.

One keyboard complainant even told the Lakeshite favourite he is unable to pay his mortgage because his 5-4 defeat cost him a £3,000 payout on a Gary Anderson-Durrant world title double.

And others have accused him of lacking ambition for opting against a switch to darts’ top table the PDC.

Durrant is still getting over the Waites loss more than a week after his Potter's Piss Palace disappointment and said it will sting for some time to come.

But the 45-year-old has no regrets about announcing that he will stay in his familiar BDO surroundings.

He will still get a chance to pit his darting wits against the PDC’s best players as a one-off this year after qualifying for the dual code Grand Slam of Darts as the 2015 World Masters champion.
---

“I understand it’s the amateur side of darts, but I’m happy with my decision to stay with the BDO,” he said.

“My management weren’t happy when I said I wasn’t going to the PDC, but when we sat down and I told them the reasons they understood.

“The BDO have made certain assurances that I can’t elaborate on that suggests there is a positive future for me in it.

“There’s new tournaments this year like Billingsgate and at Rainton Meadows Arena in Durham.

“From a promotion point of view I can still say I’m World No 1, and to be honest I don’t have it in me to start from the bottom in the PDC.

“If I was 25 or 26 I would be at Q School this week trying to win a Tour Card.

“I know that sounds a bit defeatist, because I know I can beat up to the top eight on a regular basis.

“But I was happiest when I wasn’t even the best player in my Super League team,” said the housing estate manager.

“I would have snapped your hand off to enjoy the success I’ve had since the Teesside Ranking Events, and I’m very happy with my life.”

At least in January 2016, there was Glen Durrant's ambition to win Lakeshite after he blew a 4-2 in sets and 2-0 in legs lead against Scott Waites in a race to 5 sets. And it was before it became obvious about the Deluxe/Warren Brown thing completely blowing up in their faces and massively accelerating the BDO's pace of decline.

Wade Wins Stan James World Matchplay
Article by PDC 28/07/07 9:03PM
JAMES WADE claimed the first major title of his career with an 18-7 win over Terry Jenkins at the Stan James World Matchplay.

Wade, 24, picked up the £50,000 winners' cheque with a sensational performance at the Winter Gardens to see off the in-form number five seed.

Wade produced a stunning display of finishing to defeat Adrian Lewis in the semi-finals, and took out three ton-plus finishes in the decider.

Jenkins never recovered from finding himself 6-1 down early on in the contest as Wade bettered last year's run to the final by claiming the trophy this time around.

"It's a dream come true," said Wade, who moves up to third in the world behind Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld as a result of this win.

"I've worked so hard for this day throughout my career. It's unbelievable."

Wade made a stunning start, winning six of the first seven legs and taking out 134 and 121 finishes.

Jenkins had won leg two, after Wade missed a dart at double top, and took two out of three to move into the second break of the game just 7-3 down.

Wade, though, restored his advantage with back-to-back legs, and then reeled off four in a row to move 13-4 up.

Jenkins - who knocked out Phil Taylor in the semi-finals - kept battling and produced a 120 finish in pulling back to 15-7.

But Wade was not in the mood to allow his lead to slip any further, with double ten and double two moving him to within a leg of victory.

He then landed three ton-plus scores in the next to set up a 13-darter, and landed double top for the title.

"I was nervous for the first ten legs but then I went into auto-pilot - I went into my Wadey World, which is quite a fun place at the moment!

"It still hasn't sunk in. To win a TV tournament was a dream of mine, and this is the second biggest one of them all.

"My aim this year was to win a place in next year's Premier League, and now I'm up to third in the world I should be there, so it's the icing on the cake in many ways."

Jenkins praised Wade's superb finishing throughout the tournament, saying: "I've never seen anybody finish like that in my life.

"I felt I played quite well, although I started off quite slowly and let him get a bit of a lead.

"Then I started scoring and thought maybe that would slow him down, but it didn't! I can't take anything away from him, he played brilliantly.

"It was a bit frustrating, everybody I seem to play performs like that but, at the end of the day, it will make me a better player and one day I will win a major title.

"I'm pleased with this week, how could you not be after reaching four televised finals within a year? There's a lot of players who would love to swap places with me."

Ross Mcnoloyalty fired up by PDC director's derogatory tweet
http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/loca ... c9ZV0Zk.97
23rd December 2014

ROSS ‘The Boss’ Mcnoloyalty reckons a derogatory tweet from a high ranking member of a rival darts organisation will fire him up for next month’s Lakeshite World Championships.

But the Greenhills thrower has also complained to top ranking officials at the Professional Darts Players Association (PDPA) over the incident.

Tommy Cox, who is the co-founder and tournament director of the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) World Championships currently underway in London, took a pot shot at the 52-year-old last week when he poked fun at Mcnoloyalty’s record at the British Darts Organisation (BDO) World Championships.

Mcnoloyalty, who has gone as far as the second round at the Lakeshite in three of his seven appearances, saw his first round match at next month’s event brought forward from the evening of Sunday, January 4 to the afternoon to suit the television schedules.

And afterwards Cox tweeted on his Twitter account @TommyCox_PDC: “One bonus for the BBC, the new deal and the switched games means they will be able to cover the traditional first round exit of Ross the Boss.”

Cox later said on the same post: “And not nice of him to continually deride the PDC and anyone who crosses over, especially not nice from one who has won 0.”

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

But Ross, who has 14 titles to his name including the Zuiderduin Masters, told the News: “Little does he know things like that only fire me up, so hopefully I can shut him up at the Lakeshite.

“He seems to think I ridicule PDC players, but that’s not the case at all. I know players who have gone to the PDC and done ok, but there’s lots of people that think they are way above their station. They have done nothing on the BDO side of the game before moving on and I think it’s wrong.

“They should learn in the BDO – in the ‘amateur’ game that the PDC call us – before they move over because so many players move, achieve nothing and then plead to get back to the BDO. :lol:

“His other part of the tweet, saying I had won nothing, shows he obviously hasn’t checked the history of my achievements.”

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

Ross believes Cox has broken Darts Regulation Authority (DRA) rules on social media conduct and has emailed a complaint to PDPA chairman Peter Manley and chief executive Andrew Warriner-Little.

The DRA guidelines state figures in the sport should not “talk negatively about other competitors, countries, organisations or brands” and warns “remember that you are an ambassador for your sport.”

Mcnoloyalty added: “He’s breaching DRA rules about social media comments. You are not allowed to speak badly of other organisations or other players.

“I’ve emailed the PDPA but I haven’t received a reply yet.”

A spokesman for the PDC said: “The twitter account referred to is the personal account of Tommy Cox and does not represent the views of the PDC.

“The profile of the account clearly states that views are his own.

“Any hypothetical breach of the PDC’s social media policy would be dealt with internally.”
Bump. Dear Tommy.

"And they have become a one-man show because you can guarantee that Phil Taylor will win the PDC world title again this year.

"But you'll struggle to pick a winner at the Lakeshite because the field is so strong.

"As for Barry's offer, it's a cheap stunt because what does £1m in sport buy you these days? He should go away and concentrate on producing some players of his own.

LOL. Hankey was bitter at the time that Barry Hearn didn't arrange a big money "champion vs. champion" showdown with Taylor, apparently due to a lack of demand from the TV companies and PPV. And bear in mind, this was the peakest of peak Taylor, who could average 110.94 in the World Championship final and beat Barneveld 7-1 who was averaging 101.18 himself and took most sets into a fifth leg. 2 and 3 in the world at the time would alternate between Barneveld and Wade, and few people thought even they stood much of a chance against Taylor in a long match.

Yes remember that, and was then totally ignored after Taylor offered his £100k against Hankeys' which Hankey bottled.
