Darts Etiquette - Good stuff
That last point is very valid Saber as if it falls out the game is still in play but I suppose if the shouter has called game shot the score stands as it has when a few players recently have not hit doubles but the shouted called it Game shot so it stood I suppose the same would be true if it fell out after the call. I have to say I have done both but have only done the latter a few times when on last and its been 4-4 and I hit the winning double I have turned and shook their hand before retrieving my darts but that was because of the pure adrenaline running through my veins and you just don't think. Generally I fetch then first. If I lose however I punch them straight in the face whether they have fetched their darts or not lol only kidding.

Here in my region, it is considered poor form to leave your darts in the board and shake hands. It is just the way I was taught and the way it seems to have been here for decades.I usually politely tell a player to pull his darts beforee shaking my hand. Some get upset, but 99% of players will pull them out first.

Upon watching the Darts last night I noticed 75% shook hands before removing their darts after hitting the winning double and Aide Lewis even went for a drink. I suppose it's all different wherever you play I don't care either way to be honest, as it wouldn't offend me either way. I like to see the fist pumps and the passion so if you ever play me just go for it that's if you ever get a shot at a double that is lol

Always mark your score before pulling your darts. If you have a chalker he has already done your score before you pull. Thats even in the PDC and BDO that I have watched. I may be wrong but thats how I see it.

One thing that really bothers me is the marking your score before pulling your darts...

Around here (Los Angeles), you pull 'em before you mark 'em and you're asking for trouble.

In my experience it's almost never intentional. "Honey, I'm off to drink 6 pints and do arithmetic. Don't wait up!"

Wow I can't believe there are so many cheats around I have had the caller shout me a ton when it's been a tight 60 or a 43 and I always say No its 43 or whatever it is. I would only be cheating myself if I let that wrong score count. I have never been a cheat and never would. As for chalking when you lose it is common in comps in UK as Paddydub says. But you still have to chase the losers to get them to do it as they shuffle away and try to sneak out without chalking. I didn't like the etiquette show by Wadey or Whitlock yesterday though, as Wadey went walk about after winning and danced around the stage like a demented clown so Whitlock walked off without shaking his hand so Wadey waved sarcastically at him on camera. All petty and started by the usual rowdy disrespectful drunken wanting their 5 mins of fame on TV crowd who never seem to watch much of the darts and only come alive when the camera is on them or their least favourite player is throwing for a double. It gets my back up so much as it is so wrong and should not be not part of the game as Chris Mason stated is is and have to accept it afterwards.

yes its sad- I don't want a win that I don't deserve period. I did see Good sportmanship in league the other night everyone thought that the winning bull had been hit but the player walked up said no and was given a big hand by both teams for his honesty. He later won.
