    Apart from the first leg from Bob it's been a good standard. The Thorn on the 9 darter! Forgot how much I liked Bob Anderson, best exhibition I was ever at as a kid, great to see him still going at 74 years of age.

    Wait, what's Paul Hinks doing here

    Not a fan of that dartboard, it looks very odd...

    Bloody delighted Bob got his 180. Thornton will be very hard to beat, don't think there's many more that will be hitting 90+ averages.

    All the venue is missing is the cigarette smoke and you would think it was a recording from the early 90's you were watching.

    The production is woeful but I'm enjoying seeing the old faces.

    Thornton played great. Standard in this match between Manley and Hedman is poor. Manley is getting better as the game goes on though.

    Is there anywhere to check the live averages?

    Manley looks like he is about to collapse..

    I think Manley is line for another battering from Taylor tomorrow.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,268 ✭✭✭ Porthallian


    Manley 76 and Hedman 71. Not great. The whole setup is very amateur. The MC seemed to introduce her as Deta Redman. Some of the mics are cutting out and very echoey. Still entertaining nonetheless. Arguably moreso than the PL on Sky Sports. Pure nostalgia and novelty :)

    The production company are called 247tv, ultra cheap stuff. They did the last BDO tournament in the O2 which was terrible too.

    Very hard to call the next one between O'Shea and Painter. I'm expecting better quality



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,477 ✭✭✭✭ mfceiling


    That Manley game was like something you'd see down the pub!!

    Looking forward to painter/O'Shea.



  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 11,901 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kingp35


    This is ridiculous, no score on screen for the last 5 legs!

    Good quality game though.

    The worst thing about having no score on the screen is you have to actively listen to Paul Nicholson 🙄

    "The event venue is currently experiencing WiFi issues affecting DCTV Live Scoring."

    Even the wifi in the venue isn't working.

    Big disappointment so far



  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 11,901 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kingp35


    The production is atrocious.

    Despite that though, I really enjoyed that game between Painter and O'Shea. Good quality and very close match. A pity I had to use pen and paper to keep score though.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,894 ✭✭✭ boomdocker


    Had a look at John Boy Walton and Les Wallace there at lunchtime, standard not great, but thoroughly entertaining

    I expect it'll be a breeze for Phil Taylor



  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 11,901 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kingp35


    Wallace played much better than I thought he would, he got better as the game went on. Dave Prins playing well here against Paul Lim.

    Obviously the standard isn't great but it's still entertaining stuff. The production has also improved today although it couldn't have gotten any worse.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,404 ✭✭✭ Dillonb3


    I can see Taylor winning 9-0 in legs against Manley later



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭ Fattybojangles


    The production is an absolute disgrace like it is being filmed on a potato and no scoreboard totally fcuked it made it almost unwatchable but having said all that I'll 100% tune in to watch Taylor later.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,404 ✭✭✭ Dillonb3


    Larry Butler throwing some darts, 98 average so far. Warriner-Little not troubling him



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭ Fattybojangles


    To be fair the production seems better today I've just managed to sneak it on in work.



  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 11,901 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kingp35


    Butler played some very good stuff there. Could definitely go on a good run if he can keep that standard up. AWL was shocking though, claiming he has an injury.

    Is it terrible looking on BT Sport too, are all broadcasters using same feed?
