  Farewell to Mike aka mc1958 a Nutz legend!
Posted by: Getagrip - 09-09-2023, 07:44 PM - Forum: Forum Announcements - Replies (27)

As some of you may have noticed Mike (mc1958) has not been as active for a while. I am sad to let you know Mike has decided to step down as admin and away from darts in general.

I hope he wont mind me posting what he said as I think its probably best said in his own words, but a few weeks ago he said he would take a break:

"Sorry guys but I'm going to be taking some time out - no idea how long I'll be gone for, or even if I'll be back to be honest.

I always said I'd give it all up if I stopped enjoying the game, and I am now pretty much in that position.

My main enjoyment came from playing in the league and that all stopped when COVID came along. The leagues have now restarted but sadly without me - the last couple of years my back and shoulder issues have got worse and I also now suffer from arthritis and gout (amongst other things) so I can only throw for about 10 minutes at most without needing a reasonable rest period, hence why I rarely throw at home these days.

I don't really enjoy watching the tv events these days either - the games themselves are ok but I'm not keen on all the trappings that go with it nowadays such as the clownish walkons (eg Wright/Heta/Dimi), the gurning when someone hits a 60 (eg Price/MVG), the garbage commentators (eg Pyke/Studd/Nicholson) and worst of all the crowds with all their garbage especially when players are throwing for a double.

And the way prices have kept increasing I've also pretty much stopped the collecting side as well.

I've taken my board down at home but no idea if it will go back up in a few months or not, or I may even just start selling everything on ebay or wherever when I get round to it.

As I say I don't know when, or if, I will be back on the forum, but in the meantime I have disabled the pm's on my account so that people don't think I'm being rude ignoring them.

And in case I don't reappear down the line I just want to say I've had a great time being on the forum both as a normal member and also as a member of the mod team for the last 10+ years, and all the best to you all going forward

I said he should have some time off and then see how he feels and let us know. So recently he told us:

"Hi guys

Just on quick to say this will be my last post on here as still not feeling the love for the game, and kmy health hasn't improved either, in fact it's got worse - it loos like I now also have arthritis in one of my elbows as well Sad

I've looked on the forum without logging on a couple of times and also put the board back up and bought a couple of sets from Darts Clearance to see if that changed anything but am still feeling the same. I even tried watching the Seniors darts yesterday and that didn't help as I ended up turning that off after about 10 minutes as well.

Anyway, as said previously I've really enjoyed being part of the team helping keep the forum running but my time here is now at an end. All the best to you all going forward, and you never know, I may come back in a year or two if the health improves and I start feeling the love of the game again.


I can certainly sympathize with much of what Mike has said, I dont have the same love for the darts as I did years ago, I still enjoy trying new darts etc but probably not to the same extent as before. Mike will be a huge loss to the forum though. I sent him an email but not sure if he got it as my emails have been a bit weird of late. But Mike kept a lot of things active on the forum for such a long time and even before he became part of the mod team was a very active and valued member.

I think we all get to a point where things like health, injuries, life can affect things we love to do, but when that love is gone its probably the right thing to do and move on. Who knows it may come back and if it does for Mike he will certainly be welcome back for sure.

I think I first knew Mike in the old days of Darts Corners forum, think he joined around the same time as me and always known him to be very knowledgeable about the game and dont think I ever heard anyone say anything bad about him, he just loved to talk darts Guests cannot see images in the messages.

I hope his health issues ease enough that he can get some enjoyment doing something new he loves and maybe he can once again get a spark for darts.

I am sure we all wish him the best of luck going forward what ever he does.

Thank you Mike, you were one of the best Darts Nutz around! Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
