BDO is a joke organisation. Watched the first 2 games and the standard was pretty poor, the Robson - Thompson game was a shambles when play had to be stopped for 5-10 mins while they sorted the scoreboard out.
A once great tournament has become a bit of a joke. It won't exist in a few years.
I know that. It might be the original but it won't exist in a few years. The PDC already tried taking it over once a few years ago. The BBC didn't even show the first game today. The standard is dropping with each year as are the viewing figures while interest in the PDC is increasing as is the standard.
