Players in the past
Funny how none of these guys are playing competatively today. is it an age thing ? Got to think that the 'skill' would still be there...J.D.

I think with some it was a money thing. Later on when they were given life bans by the BDO and there wasn't that much money about on the WDC/PDC side by the time all the court cases were done with a lot of the younger players here had gone to day jobs, while some of the older ones could move into the broadcasting side and have an income.
The cost of all the court cases meant that all the money in the game for about a decade went to lawyers rather than become prize money.

There was an interview with Mike and Taylor on the darts channel over Xmas and Gregory said in hindsight he regretted not moving.

I remember Taylor being asked about it and he said he had made the right decision but instead of just saying he had made a lot of money or was a millionaire he had to say it had made him a multi-millionaire.

I think that says a lot about the man imho.

Mike Gregory returned to the BDO in 1994.
