      Watched a bit of it today on BBC 2, one of the competitors Sean Greatbatch, been suffering from cancer I think, missed this bit at the start, but they did a nice piece on him, very moving.

      He didn't appear last year, won through a wildcard and was just pleased to be playing again. He got beat 3-0 by one of his mates John Walton, then most of the darts players then gave him a guard of honour when he left the stage.

      As i said very moving!

      Sky darts are professional, BBC are amerture that's the biggest difference.

      Sky without a doubt are the better organistion, with better quality, which I assume is only natural with them being professional. Even the best on the BBC though look as if they'd stuggle to qualify for most of Sky's tournaments. In saying that, the BBC offers much better excitement because it's a wide open event, whereas on Sky you know Taylor has won before a darts been thrown.

      Anyone watching the 2010 World Championship at the moment?  Brilliant game last night between Alan Tabern and Mark Dudbridge, went to tie break and Dudbridge won 4-3.  Taylor whitewashed The Muffin Man  :o

      Looking forward to watching Adrian Lewis again, he's well up for this, if all goes to plan, he should meet Taylor in the quarter finals and what a match that will be. Taylor is peeved that Lewis's average score is higher than his at the moment, would love Lewis to win the tournament, although Taylor is without doubt the Master, he is so bloody arrogant with it.

      Come on Adrian Lewis !!   ;D

      Im a massive darts fan Gow, seems like you are as well.

      I was watching last night and after the football finished the crowd were going nuts, do you think that was to do with our result being heard or not...???

      Not sure you know Gow mate, Whitlock looks like he can match him. One of the few in the world who possibly can.

      His finishing hasn't been as good as it usually is.
      He'll run away with it now, Whitlock seems a little down now.

      This match (and the whole tournament) just goes to show how much better the PDC is than that pish BDO on the Beeb. (Cmon Whitlock!)

      Cracking finish, had 5£ on a few players, Whitlock was one of them (as was Mardle :'( ) but even so, even I cheered when that dart went in. What a player. Arrogant f**ker though ;)

      Phil Taylor won then. Wow. Big surprise that.

      Concentrate on the proper tournament now with the people who haven't sold their souls for a few pieces of silver.

      PDC = Phil Taylor and that's about it.

      Overall standard of BDO is better and at least it's actually a bit of a competition. Plus the PDC are just a bunch of Sky loving pricks that remind of the Premier League money grabbing cockends.

      You've been watching that PDC for a week or whatever and I could have told you 6 months ago who was going to win.

      Anyway, I digress.

      Bit harsh that. All the best players are in the PDC. The standard in the PDC is miles better than BDO. There's players got beat in the PDC this week with averages that would have beaten the finalists of the BDO.

      And Sky have that funky music. Eh Eh Eh.

      The PDC used to be sponsored by Skol which is a sh*t lager.

      The BDO was sponsored by Embassy who make boss fags.

      Colin Murray's got a tattoo with the 5 stars on it.

      Phil Taylor's a manc.
