If it happens???? There will be War

Unbelievable happenings this week in the World of darts. Once again the game gets bad publicity with a former World Champion unable to fulfil his fixture and the tabloids certainly went to town on that. I wish him well and a speedy recovery though as big Andy is a nice chap and a total gentleman but its a pity this happened and as I say it looks bad on the BDO and darts worldwide.

The man who has won nothing Mr. George launched his book this week too and what a bitter read it is. If you are a PDC fan get it if you like a bit of comedy and if you are a BDO fan get it as there is plenty of bitterness in it. If you are a total darts fan get it too and make your own mind up on it.

The PDC awards dinner took place in the Dorchester last night and what a night was had. Big Phil Jones waved goodbye to the PDC and along with life John Raby member joined the PDC hall of fame and deservedly too. It was an expensive night at the Dorchester with a bacard and coke a vodka and coke and 2 glasses of champagne costing £60. Daylight robbery. Taylor got player of the year with Barney winning fans player of the year. The 14 players who made the original break from the BDO in 1993 and who went on to win the court case about restraint of trade got honoured by receiving life membership into the sport of darts by independent bodies and this I must say brought a tear to alot of eyes coz without those 14 the PDC would not be here today. These people lost a lot of friends in 1993 and as I say deserved this and well done again. For those of you who dont know who those 14 were they are. Phil Taylor, Eric Bristowe,John Lowe,Jocky Wilson,Alan Warriner,Jamie Harvey,Keith Deller,Rod Harrington,Cliff Lazarenko,Dennis Priestley,Bob Anderson,Peter Evison,Kevin Spiolek and Ritchie Gardner. Well done lads. The professional game owes it all to you. James Wade won the best young player but you can check out more about the awards on the PDC website.

Going back to the title of this blog. If it happens there will be war was in relation to the name being flung about for the last wild card into the 2007 premier league. I am not mentioning any names but if he gets the last spot in the league it will cause some serious aggro. Again I'll watch this space and make your own mind up if it is. Lets just say he is currently playing in the BDO. Only a rumour but Barney coming over was only a rumour this time last year too.
