I used to play about 30 years ago so I reckon in that respect am probably just as good as some of those in the BDO.
I once had to explain the game to a young Polish girl at work where we had a board for lunchtimes after she asked "Why are you going for all the big numbers and he is going for the smaller ones"?

The PDC is much the better darts tournament even if the crowd noise is overwhelming. It's odd to see the BDO audience actually watching the darts, how quaint!

I prefer PDC as well but sky sports is a bit pricey although they may be showing some on BBC as I believe they did last year.

BBC have not renewed the BDO darts contract coz they can't afford it, channel 4 and BT sports have it, where's the TV Licence money going, bloody hell

I used to play quite a lot, not in pubs or anything, just in the garage, by myself. I find it very theraputic (sp) relaxing, winding down...whilst keeping the brain working........that was until my wife asked to play......she whacked me...it must be something to do with eye/movement cordination
