I would say make the BDO the official minor league/development tour for the PDC, but the PDC already has those sorts of things in place. End of the line, I think. Maybe have a small legends league on the side for the old guys, that I'd like to see. Darts isn't big enough for two leagues, not when the PDC outclasses the BDO so heavily. PDC could move an event to Lakeside

And what happens to the thousands of players who play super league and county that the BDO run, plus all the other events on the tour in the UK and overseas that a lot of those players go to?

Do the BDO run it or local volunteers?

It all comes under the BDO
It does but my point was if the organisation doesn,'t rely much on the top of the BDO so would it change much if the BDO disappeared. More true of super league than county.
Mack The Knife
The trend I see is going on in the PDC is that a lot of the former PDC top players that do not have a tourcard anymore are trying their luck in the BDO. Names like Wes Newton, Andy Hamilton, Jamie Caven, Kevin Painter, Colin Osborne and several more were attending the Midlands Open a couple of days ago.

Could players like this pull the BDO out of the slump? I think it will have a considerable inpact on ticket sales when former PDC players like there are attending the BDO televised tournaments. These players are still very popular on the exhibition circuit, so I think people will more likely watch them on TV compared to the less known BDO players that are high in the BDO rankings.

What do you guys think?
