Only Phil Taylor will have a say in that, methinks.

If it was two young 20 somethings you could almost let them off, no excuse for a man in his 30s. It's often the case with roided up people above the age of 30, they're often a bit man-child. I know he was a rugby player so maybe he's not one of those types, but he just seems like a very immature, angry man who hasn't grown up. 

Disclaimer: I'm sure he's not juiced (at least not anymore) but you know what I mean.  Big Grin

I think Price does that on purpose. A few months ago he started to celebrate a lot more and
 excessive than he did before. I can't remember that he celebrated 180s or 140s one year ago.


If you ask me, it's calculation. He wants to raise attention and make a "entertaining" player out of himself to increase his chances to get into the Premier League.

I thought Price's no-look handshake at the end while celebrating his victory lacked class. If your opponent sticks his hand out to say "well-done mate" you shouldn't carry on like that.

I hope Cadby becomes more professional as he seems to have a ton of talent.

I think it's not the celebration that annoys people...

Speaking just for myself, the celebrations alone are bad enough. 

I can handle the fact that with that hairstyle and overly tight shirt Cadby looks like a bouncer at a lesbian mixer. I can handle him celebrating after winning a match or even a leg, but I can't handle the frequency of his mid-leg celebrations (the guy celebrates just about every intentional triple) or his walking towards the crowd (instead of his toward darts) to celebrate while the leg is still on. It's annoying, it's disrespectful to his opponent and someone he looks up to - if there is any such person - needs to tell him to stop.

At least now I know why Phil Taylor wants Cadby in the Premier League. With Cadby being as obnoxious as he is, what better way to flip one's middle finger to his opposition on the way out? The Cadby I saw at the Worlds was a guy I wanted to see progress and succeed. The Cadby I'm seeing now is a guy I want to lose and go away.

Cadby could have waited until Price had finished celebrating.

He offered to have the game be played like that and Price took him up on the offer. Cadby should have taken his medicine at the end. I don't know how this is going to work for Cadby though - if it is an act - as I can see having the crowd on your back week in week out might get wearing.

Price was celebrating like he had won Wimbledon and was still celebrating after Cadby walked off. There's gamesmanship and then there's sportsmanship. Price won the match but imo was the clear loser here for bad sportsmanship.

This is what happens with some young people have success and get full of themselves.   Some, mind you, but not all, and that's a good thing that most of them act dignified.     

Oh, and I love the "bouncer at a lesbian mixer" statement.   Even though I didn't see the match folks are commenting on, I've seen him play and how he dresses when on stage and your statement is pretty accurate and funny.

I agree, celebrate leg wins, match victories, but why go through all the theatrics every score above 120 regardless of where you are in the leg.

Bottom line here is "grow up" young man and act like you've been there before.

The entire match is available on YouTube, or you could save yourself over a half hour and watch this abbreviated version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAHtWyDbIB8 .

thanks, I'll give it a look in a bit after I run some errands.

Cadby seemed more engaged with the crowd than his performance. Also, regarding both players, its entirely unnecessary to look back at your opponent after every series. Had to expect something along these lines given the circumstances, but Cadby should be learning more and Price should be trying to teach a bit given his experience.

Pulled a picture of Cadby's darts from a youtube vid. Has the look of Harrows Torpedoes 21g model, possibly weighted up to 24g based on what I've read from other sources. Also a gold coating of sorts? Best I can muster so far.

I wanted Cadby to win, and I'm no fan of Price, but to have to disagree here. I don't think either of them came out of it looking good and there wasn't much to separate their behaviour in terms of sportsmanship or gamesmanship. When Price won he won the right to celebrate. His celebration like just about everything in the match was over the top but I think Cadby should have given him a few moments longer to shake his hand.


Contrast this game with when Cadby played, and lost to, Joe Cullen last year in the Worlds. Cadby certainly celebrated big shots (a 180 to leave 81, winning a set) but he did it the right way: on the way to get his darts. (The turning back to the crowd thing I think needs to be stamped out.) Cullen had a few raised eyebrows while they were playing but at the end of the game they shook hands properly, and even had a little hug. No lines had been crossed and everyone was happy.

People will always find something to complain about...too much celebrating.....not enough characters....etc....etc...but I haven't seen anyone say that they thought the Cadby Price game was acceptable.
