PDC World Darts Championship

Michael van Gerwen hits out at PDC after Covid test ends world title hopes | Darts | The Guardian?

Can’t believe there isn’t a thread one for this already so here goes.

It’s bizzare watching the darts, players have been told or are deciding themselves that after match is over they won’t embrace or shake hands due to risk of spreading covid but directly behind them it’s a virtual moshpit ,place is jammed full of pissed punters ,no one wearing masks .Mental .

See Dave Chisnall gone now , I’d found it strange looking at full stands in the soccer , but at least that’s out doors , the Darts looks so wrong , must be very uncomfortable for the players trying to perform , having lost fellow players meanwhile a ridiculous circus taking place behind you

In years to come when this virus has been controlled/beaten things like the Darts will be this generations “ well meet again” stiff upper lip , keep calm carry on moment ,just don’t ask how many people died unnecessarily

You do see when they cut back to sky studio, staff collecting not glasses but empty tankards from tables .Say it’s as messy as fook , although have never seen it kicking off in background while darts are been thrown.

Calls for World Darts Championship to be postponed after Covid outbreak (via @IrishTimes) Calls for World Darts Championship to be postponed after Covid outbreak

Not a hope. They’re pulling in the money. Although it is getting increasingly ridiculous. What happens if a quarter or even a semi is conceded. Seriously damages the brand

Great game between Anderson and White.

White missed a match dart and Gary won the leg and levelled the game.

Can’t see Anderson losing it here now.

He just wilted

Even early in the game he was missing an awful lot of doubles

Backed him to win it out at 16/1…has work to do here though. Nice 161 finish there.

He wilts all the time on the big stage. He’s very good in floor tournaments with no crowds.

What a game this is

Superb, haven’t seen that good in a long time. Well done Smith

Unbelievable game. Feel sorry for Clayton but smith is a good lad. Even played darts in my local a few years ago.
