What's worse than that is the likes of Gurney and Wade being knobbed out of tournaments by a guy who has clearly already mentally checked out of the sport and lobs them like he couldn't give a fuck what happens. Guys who are supposed to be in the prime years of their career. Absolutely embarrassing for them.

Well that was a good first half of a world series, and the second half turned into true turgid shite.

Aspinall being unseeded and the cancer that wade and the headshaker have been being seeded is awful.

Really need to be looking to spread the invites around, Aspinall ending up outside the top 8 is a massive own goal. Should have given Chizzy a whirl and at least thrown White a crumb just to shut his fanboys up

And a massive own goal it turns out to be as the criteria has been confirmed: https://www.pdc.tv/news/2019/08/24/dutc ... nals-field
The remaining 16 competitors for the World Series of Darts Finals will be comprised as follows:
Top 4 in Order of Merit at October 12 not otherwise qualified
Between 4 and 8 invited players at discretion of PDC board
Between 4 and 8 qualifiers from a Full Member qualifier
Further details will be confirmed in due course
"Between 4 and 8 players" "Invited players at discretion of PDC board" :roll:

Aspinall should get in anyway but that's really sloppy.

Agreed they need to spread the invites around more. Aspinal should have gotten at least one more bite. White should have got an invite. I get that certain players are a commercial draw. But fans like performers too. I think the PDC banks too much on name recognition and needs to give more weight to quality performers. The product and brand needs to become more about darts and the quality and less about individuals. This isn't wrestling where the matches are fixed.

I think it did that is why they went to the PDC discretion invites.at the last hour. Get the criteria set in advance. #trueintegrityofsport

That criteria was in the rules before anyway. I liked how they did it last year so let's hope the same happens

Top 4 in Order of Merit at October 12 not otherwise qualified: Smith, Price, Suljovic, White

If it follows last year's criteria, it would be Aspinall, Whitlock, Clemens, Kando, Ben Robb, Schindler, Nico Kurz and Haupai Puha qualifying by virtue of being the next best 8 on the World Series circuit (assuming they can all make it lol), with 4 places up for grabs in this, don't see why this would be any different but PDC gonna PDC I guess. Schindler is named on that list, but then again so is Whitlock, who knows?

Obviously it's great watching those players but for fuck's sake, they went some way to making it meritocratic last year, why go away from that? You know I'm a big fan of a lot of those players, but give me Nico Kurz over any of them!

The World Series should be a Celebration of all the players that currently playing in the PDC regional tours. Players like Asada, Darius, Campbell, Puna should be included as they are the leading players within their region, There would be ample qualifying spots for the Tour Card Holders anyway

I would pee everywhere if they apply your idea to the Grand Slam instead and kick out all the BDO players to implement it.

Guessing they've been included as they're the top 3 Dutchmen not otherwise qualified, but this is akin to HNQs for a ET event.
