Phil Taylor Signing Boards?
If, as Sabre says, he's giving them away.....why don't they auction them off for charity? I'm sure a bit of dosh could be raised from selling them off. I find Taylor to be a little bit of a mystery, at times (interviews) he comes off like a complete twat, at others he seems like a guy who you'd buddy around with. I think maybe it's a little of both. Can't deny the impact he's had on the sport. Safe to say that without Taylor the darting world might still be living in relative obscurity.

My one thought is, when he loses I think he tries to leave the stage as quickly as possible and let the winner have their spot.

Unfortunately though his opponent cant do that if Taylor beats them.  He has to suffer the whole circus of taking down the board and be made sign it.  If you do not you look like a sore loser.

I assume he gives them away.  If he does I'm sure who ever gets it would be happy with a board two top pro's signature regardless who won or lost.

Do it all the time or he should not be let do it at all.
Rant over lol
Currently throwing 20g Wades badly at an Eclipse Pro

I wonder what they do with the boards after a match is over

The boards in a Wade/Thornton match are fit to be tossed in the bin, at least in the 20 wedges condition.

You're right they usually go to someone in the audience or I've seen them auctioned off for charity before and I don't think anyone takes issue with that at, it's all very nice. 
The problem comes when it only takes place after a Taylor win, never when he loses and never after a game between any 2 other players. That reeks of hypocrisy.

You just described me and most of my friends to be totally honest. We all make a twat of ourselves at times, it happens and you laugh about it afterwards and just take the piss out of them for it. 


To me he just seems like your typical, likeable but grumpy/annoying but kind, West Midlands Grandad.  Smile
