How would you score this?
I was throwing at T20 and the third dart deflected down, spun, and wedged itself under the bull ring.  The point is indeed touching the board in the red.  How would this be scored?

I'd score it as 25 and try to fix that bull ring with a bit of wood and a hammer.
The point "crossed the plane" in the outer bull area if you want to go American Football Touchdown sort of route. - If the bull ring was seated properly then the dart would either be in the outerbull... or the floor.

(I expect a few red challenge flags to come flying in from the side-lines now.)

No red flag from me, 25 is the correct score:

From the BDO rulebook:
3.4 The score is counted from the side of the segment wire in which the point of the dart enters and remains in or touching the face of the dartboard.

From the PDC rulebook:
5.4.2 A scoring dart is counted by reference to the segment into which the point of the dart enters and remains in or touching the face of the dartboard.

Oh, and I agree about fixing that bull ring as well lol

I had this exact same scenario when practising at the weekend. I must admit I was baffled about it, but the ring went back in place easy enough luckily and no harm done.

I scored myself a cautious 25 for it and am happy that I went the right way about.

More annoying because the Bull would have left me on a finish...

Pretty sure it's a 25. I think the rules state it's the side of the wire, not where the point is in these cases...nice shot anyway!

Yes they do state that - I quoted the rules in my earlier post
