BDO Darts World Championship 2020

Recommended Posts

Always look forward to this and sadly could be the last ever BDO Tournament.Hoping that Wesley Harms wins the men's and young Beau Greaves for the ladies although it would be nice to see Deta Hedman finally pick up the title

Always my favourite tournament of the year but just can't imagine it not being played at the lakeside.

 

Let the ridicule from the usual suspects on here start, I'm sure they are constantly averaging 90+ down the local.

A Google search of "BDO Darts" and then a look at news articles over the last 2 months is very worrying. It appears it is pretty much all over. The World Darts Federation (WDF) doesn't even recognise BDO anymore as a governing body. It is sad but I'm sure most of us know that BDO has been badly run for years. If they do go under then I hope something is done to provide that bridge between the amateur level and the top of the game. BDO has been a good place for players in their early careers to gain experience before moving to the PDC.

Watched the parletti game against the dutcman and that was really good.The problem with the BDO is the PDC have everything for people to get into darts now(just signed my lad up to the JDC),Then it's the developement tour and the Pro Tour.(hopefully)!:please:I can see why people wouldn't want to test themselve's against the best in the PDC,Scott Mitchell as an example who has a farm and i suppose it's a big gamble to go full time when you have a steady income from somewhere else..Feel a bit sorry for the BDO players,seems the organization have let them down.

Why did they move from Lakeside? Was the move part of the nail n the coffin?

On the latter part, apparently tickets sales have been diabolical for the Indigo at O2

delusions of grandeur. think it wasn't long ago that barry hearn said that some of the top dogs at the BDO still thought they were capable of competing with the PDC. 

 

beau greaves was alright last night. interesting to see what happens to her. surely she isn't actually 15 though.

Do you have to have top skills on the oche to be allowed a view on this forum darts?

I can't belt out a tune but I found The Masked Singer to be painful and awful.

Was going to say something similar. I never see people making that arguement on here or elsewhere, regarding any other sport. A lot of people on here call other football, cricket, rugby etc teams, or even just specific players shit. And then tennis players, boxers etc get called shit, but there is never anyone going "oh yeah show me your cricket YouTube video of you bowling a double hatrick over then!". BDO is lower quality than PDC. Its plain to see. A lot of darts fans want entertainment. PDC provides that. Yes BDO does too but it's not such a high level. I myself am happy to watch both, but I always watch the PDC world champs start to finish, the BDO I watch if I see is it on and I've got nothing else to do. Tbh I watched it more when it was on BBC, moving from there ****ed them a lot.

 

You can think its shit when there is a higher quality alternative to watch. You dont have to be bloody Gary Anderson to say the BDO is shit. I think plenty of teams are shit at football, but that doesn't mean I'm any good at football; tbh i played CB as a kid and scored more own goals than I prevented.

Banged some of this on yesterday, it just doesn't feel right.

 

Feels like it's being played in some back room of a pub, so many empty seats and it looks like they can't even afford Winmau Dart boards this year.

Absolutely anybody is allowed to have whatever opinion they like, I was just disagreeing with it and still find it bemusing that people take the piss out of it at any opportunity and slate it yet continue to watch it hour after hour.. Bizarre for me, but like others it's just my opinion.

Apparently they sold 15% of the tickets and have lost a load of sponsors as a result of them viewing the BDO as  a “toxic” organisation.
