Painful.
Oh dear
I still don't think he will switch..
When he says things like "Q School is not easy" and "The tour circuit is pretty gruelling" and " I have a good job that I have been in for 30 years" you can see that he is not up for the fight.
Lakeshite and exbos for duzza next year I think
Need I quote his post here again?

Probably Fitton said him a lot of good and convincing things about playing in the PDC and Duzza liked it.

Must say I am surprised this thread is on to 9 pages.

I'd be even more surprised to see Duzza at Q-School, but I hope he does try.

Hopefully he is not so delusional to think that winning Lakeshite, the WDT, the Isle of Man and getting out of his group at the Grand Slam will be enough for Uncle Barry to give him a Card.

Q School after winning Lakeshite is a tough slog. Personally Q School is a lottery (Some who won tour cards have done fuck all)

No-one is forcing him to win Lakeshite, but even if he does he plays 5 games in 9 days, then has a few days off before potentially 4 days of darts, where even if he doesn't get a card he will have plenty of chances next year to win money, and no 'distractions' before the next Q-school.

Is it really that tough?

Fair enough if he doesn't want to play PDC and is happy with a full time job and darts as a side interest, but thats another matter.

And Uncle Barry has made clear he's not getting a Tour Card without playing Q-school.

Absolutely.

Stop with the bullshit, stop contradicting yourself in interviews, stop complaining about how hard Q-School is. If you want to stay in the BDO, say that, if you want to try the PDC, just turn up at Q-School.

Personally that's why I really don't care that much whether Durrant switches eventually or doesn't. Not that he's not good enough to make serious money, it's simply the years of unnecessary drama which made a mockery of all this. Let the darts speak for themselves and don't change your fucking mind every 3 months.

Who the fuck cares who switches. BDO only has Durrant and Waites worth half a shit. BDO hasn't got a system for really developing players into top players. Do they really have enough to draw unsuccessful PDC players back into doing the whole travel club shit? Over the years would say more are doing the challenge tour than going back to the travel club. Wez and hammer are the anamoly and show even the shit players of the PDC can make the top tier of the BDO.

Is Michael Barnard better Glen Durrant?

Barnard has won a tour card plus nearly £60K in one year not a bad concelation prize for losing a 'Lottery'!

“I’ll be going to Q-School, definitely,” the Gladiator told the Weekly Dartscast.

“That was decided a while ago. I think any BDO player would be foolish not to go because if you don’t get your Tour Card you can come back, which was never the rule before.”

McGeeney earned a spot in the PDC Grand Slam, having made his debut last year, and is excited for the challenge.

“I can’t wait to play in it again,” he said.

“Last year, it was a real eye-opener. The way they (the PDC) organise everything, it’s so professional, it’s amazing.”
