Gerwyn Price fined £21,500 and given a suspended three-month ban

It is a suspended ban for 6 months. Only if he misbehaves during those 6 months, the ban will become active and he would not be allowed to play in any PDC event for 3 months.

It's clear to me the PDC is trying to make a point, that such excessive celebration and gamesmanship won't be tolerated in the future. Which is a great thing IMO, in the past we've seen fines of 3000 or 5000 pounds for similar offences, which just isn't big enough to be a deterrant to players.

However that doesn't excuse Anderson's behaviour at all. Whatever you think about the final and who was at fault, he clearly breached the rules multiple times so he deserved a serious punishment as well. Irrespective of Price's actions and the fine he got, Anderson should have received a punishment himself.

Agree with this 100%.

I reckon the DRA got this spot on as Gerwyn Price's behaviour during the Grand Slam was just ridiculous, especially in the matches against Whitlock and Anderson. It was above and beyond what I would consider acceptable gamesmanship, he was just embarrassing in the final, celebrating 81's etc like he'd won his first World Championship in a deliberate attempt to put off his opponent.

As for Anderson's slap on the wrist, it's probably the right decision too. Yes he was wrong to put his hand on Price but does anyone honestly think he shoved Price, not a chance.

I love a bit of needle between players but that was too much from Price, hopefully this will be a valuable lesson for him.

Ok, thanks for the clarification.

Price treated harshly there in my opinion although he over does it sometimes.anderson as much as I like him is a lucky boy there.

First off.. I’ll say I’m biased. (I can’t stand gerwin price.. total d*ck IMO) but I feel like the punishment is fair.. it’s one thing to celebrate to yourself or to the crowd.. but not in someone’s face.. especially over and over, like he did. Sportsmanship is key, especially when your a pro player.
All that being said i have to tip my hat to Anderson, I don’t think many people could have held their cool like he did. I know I couldent have.

Yes Anderson did do well to keep his cool, I'm sure that a lot of other pro's would have lost it with Price over his antics. 

Could you imagine someone acting like that down your local, they'd soon get told where to go.

With that punishment they have set a precedent for future rulings so will be interesting to watch that.....
But I think they have to also look at celebration s that almost become goading and making. Rule change maybe

No, he played the victim the same way Anderson did.

Im going to chip in with something relevant or possibly a "knock on " from the antics,  we all talk about kids rolling round on the floor when they get tackled like some of our highly payed footballers ?!!,
Well my Son competed in an open darts comp on Saturday, ( decent money), and quite honestly the behaviour by some of the under 18`s I found personally appalling !!. ( NO ADULT PLAYERS acted like this )

Throw a ton and they are walking back past the toe line and screaming to the crowd !!, the kid who actually lost in the final was physically " punching " himself in the face,  actual clenched fist , knuckles first into his nose and cheeks !!!.
At the presentation he looked like he has finished runner up in a Boxing match !!!.

So although I agree the fine for Price is somewhat extortionate I do feel some form of punitive measure should apply for this,  its ruining the sport, this is beyond banter !!,

Its just going to be a fine line between banter and cheating !

And worse than that the parents "goading" them to carry on !!.

My Son won by the way ( £250 better off and only dropped 9 legs throughout the entire comp). and the only time he shouted was when his double 10 went in on the final leg !!!

As mentioned in their statement Price has had warnings in the past, it's not one heavy fine, it's three smaller fines for separate incidents. I think by highlighting occasions they feel he's over stepped the mark, they are sending a clear message as to what is and isn't going to be accepted going forward. The suspended ban is just done as a reminder that he needs to tone it down and if he doesn't the PDC can implement the ban without a full hearing.

It's got nothing to do with the PDC what fines and bans they get mate. It's the DRA, who are basically in charge of order and discipline within the sport. Although how the PDC haven't got hold of this by now is beyond me, if you're Barry Hearn do you seriously want an external body being able to do what they want to your players without your say so? Then again with the DRA being neutral I think it's better that way, if MVG and for example Ted Evetts both did the same darting crime I'm sure Barry would be more lenient on MVG haha

Ah Thanks for the clarification! I had misinterpreted the statement. I think it makes sense for the DRA to be neutral and handle these issues, that said, they have set a precedent with this decision so they need to be consistent with enforcing it across the board now!

I’m not so sure, pushing Gerwyn could be called “keeping your cool”.  Placing your hands on someone can escalate a situation rapidly.

As can turning around and screaming after every visit to the board regardless of the score. 

Anderson shouldn't have put his hands on Price but to be honest I'd consider Price's behaviour far more likely to escalate a situation, that's why I think Anderson did keep his cool. I could see other pro's losing the plot with Price's antics.
