    MVG, Barney, Nicholson and Anderson are my favourites

    Yes the players tend not to be overly athletic.

    Good job you never watched in the Era of Jocky Wilson et al. The players back then played with a pint in one hand and a cigarette in the other.

    Big darts fan. Watch every major and the Premier League. Both codes too.

    Have a bet every thurs on the Prem League as well.

    Lewis, Anderson and Thornton are my personal favourites. Like Jamie Caven too.

    Id like to say i play a bit, but its just down the local with several pints.

    I used to love the darts, especially the Premier League, I wouldn't miss a week but now I rarely watch. Just gone right off it.

    to be fair though playing it aint that bad, very hard

    but seriously a crap sport

    Every sport is like you watching something repeatedly though, Snooker potting balls, Horse racing Horses running, Athletics, Even football same rubbish each game goals, diving and bad decisions with fans singing.

    I think some of the popularity stems from the environment it is played in...ie it is a pub game.

    Look at the chants...de de de de da da da da da daa..oi oi oi.

    yeh snooker u can play safety, crazy pots

    athletics/racing isnt the same thing over and over again. olympics happen once every 4 yrs and its not like they race 100 times in one day
    its one race in a day or two

    very bad comparissons

    just please admit its crap, ok u might go for a day out but its a crap sport

    abit of a silly comparisson

    Thanks for your opinion but i'll choose to ignore you, Why post on a Darts thread for Darts fans? when you don't like it?

    You're here to get a response from people by slagging something they like, Congratulations I replied.

    Bye Bye.

    Also sort your spelling as you type like a 8yr old.

    Love the darts that much I've started writing for an online sports magazine about it ha.

    Favourite players are probably RVB, Tony O'Shea and Paul Nicholson.

    I work for an agency who've created an app/game called Darts Match too, you can get it on Android, iOS and Windows Phone if you go to relevant store. It's doing really well and yes I know I sound like a salesman but I promise I'm not lol

    Its got a decent following in Australia, Japan, Belgium and Canada and many more. They have a World Cup of Darts... in case you was unaware.

    Austria, Gibraltar, Finland, Poland, South Africa, Sweden, Croatia, New Zealand, Spain, Italy, Hungary and more all participating.

    It is World Wide... just because it doesn't hit the heights of football and other sports, doesn't mean it isn't popular.

    Your a clown.

    Great stuff, wouldn't miss it.

    To the OP, There's probably no thread in this forum because you can't post beyond 8pm. Hardly worthwhile.

    If you don't like darts, stay out of the thread. Don't try and get a rise out of the OP or those that do with your pathetic efforts at trolling.

    The Silverback eh lol ...

    Was a great show last night, MVG is such a talent he will be around for a long time, Lewis finally grabbed a win and Wright got under Taylors skin ... Love it!, Anderson is going great this year keep it up!

    Ha gotta love the Silverback, can't not like Tony and he's a good player, the nearly man of darts though unfortunately.

    This has definitely been the best PL, the standard is ridiculously good, the amount of draws and close games shows you how evently matched most of them are.

    I know, Barney seems to draw loads think its 6? ... Thornton is class but just not done enough, Semi's will be MVG, Barney, Anderson and Taylor, Although personally would like to see Wright through and Taylor out.

    No shock Taylor is through, He just does enough every time doesn't he, Personally don't like the guy, He's a nice guy when winning but sour when he loses

    I hope RVB beats him next week.
