Darts thread: van Gerwen and van Barneveld square off in Premier League [week 3]



So I've been really getting into darts lately. From what I saw there are quite a few people here who know a thing or two about the sport, so I thought I'd open a thread.

Can chat here about the occasional tournaments/matches

So are there people here who follow darts? Who are your fave players?

Re: Darts thread

The only "sport" where an average obese man with a pint in his hand can be considered a "winner".

Re: Darts thread

Darts is entertaining shit. I'm a very casual viewer. I don't know when most events are but I'll watch it if it's on.

I like James Wade, Gary Anderson, and Phil Taylor.

Game over. Forever.

Re: Darts thread

Lol at people saying it's not a sport, obviously never watched. It's probably the most nerve-wrecking sport of all.

Great choices, Slade. I like Wade and Taylor too. Did you by any chance watch the games last night?

Re: Darts thread

Nope. I'll be watching later on though. I saw Taylor was mugging it up against van Gerwen, missing 8 of 9 doubles to start . Had to dodge 5 MP as well. Lucky he drew.

Also yeah, it's so easy to choke in darts. You don't have the whole court to throw a dart in, just a tiny area at a double, even smaller when you're trying to close out legs and you're losing your head, tensing up and shit.

Game over. Forever.

I think you ought to apologise for posting such a bizarre comment. Of course it's a sport.

Re: Darts thread

Well, I think my fave is Tony O'Shea, but in the PDC it's James Wade and Phil Taylor.
Michael van Grewen and Simon Whitlock are also awesome. Don't like van Barneveld and Adrian Lewis.

Did anybody here watch the World Cup or the premier league matches this week?

Re: Darts thread

I thought this was turning in to the Darts thread but it died unfortunately. BDO World Darts Championships 2013

The World Cup is a pointless tournament. Absolutely no sense of occasion whatsoever.
