Anybody watching this? I've thoroughly enjoyed what I've seen of it so far, love the cut throat nature of it.

I can imagine the purists are not too hung up on it mind?

Cheers guys.

It's a bit of a laugh but it's mostly aimed at those with the attention span of a fly. Still, it's fun and it's good to see some of the old legends back (I'm looking at you "Angles" McManus!!).

I'd prefer Dominic Dale to win this myself.


Dominic Dale for the World Championship.

Is he still in it? He has two ranking events so he should share one with Ryan.

He used to host a Sunday night show on TalkSport with Bobby Gould and it was absolutely brilliant. Gould was just awesome!

Whenever I see him he (or someone around him) is ballsing something up. He's alright on the radio though.

Right, someone answer me this.

Why is Uncle Barry doing one thing in snooker - the flat 128 draw, and doing the opposite in darts? Ye'd never get a flat 128 World Grand Prix!

I have no idea. For some tournaments it will work but I don't like it. Barry's done a lot of good for the game but I think this is a bad idea.

Agreed.

For example in darts I think Q School is ludicrous.

Perhaps use the PTC OOM to award some places?

Just remembering. I think in the past the top 32 went in at the last 64 - Hendry's 9-0 loss the UK was in the last 64. Wasn't that to Marcus Campbell?

Absolutely, and we need Rod Harrington to tell us the colour of the balls the players have potted.

Yeah that was Campbell. One of the biggest upsets of all time.

It must have been odd that Hendry wasn't at the TV stage. I guess that brought about the top 16 straight into TV that we now have? Though I recall some of the UK last 32 was played in cubicles until fairly recently.

I hope they all go to the venues. It doesn't matter if all the top players aren't on TV but hopefully the fans at the venues will have a chance to see whoever they want to see.

Like how the BDO opens work? Yes that would be fine, set up the arena with a few table, with a main one as well.

PLEASE, NO CUBICLES!!!!!

Nah we'll use Willie Thorne for that.

No cubicles, agreed. I like the UK Open set-up but space would be an issue. Maybe somewhere with a big arena and a few smaller arenas and then some backroom tables.

Dale out to Allen.

Sad to see Dom go, but at least Allen is through.

What would Dom need to do to crack the top 16? He's ranked 21 at the minute.

A miracle!! Joking aside, he's never cracked it before but we know he can win ranking tournaments so it's a difficult one. Maybe he just needs to step it up at the big events, especially the BBC events.
