Been here before Ian, old ground on deaf ears ,when i proposed this idea some months ago i was poo poo'ed as a few people said too me " i can't do Euro's for this that or the other reason ? well i struggle with a full Winter League due to work commitments so it's a case of you will never please very one ?
I think it's the way forward the Euro's , it's 12 months in advance , hard two day shoot, with all the top boys there !
You could register interest on the day pay deposit then base the top eight on a ladder system of qualification, if you drop out next man up, simples.
I fully enjoyed Norway, mainly as it ran like clock work, Andy Kays worked his bollocks off & also Me , Gilly , Calp & Jamesy had a mega time & the best laugh ever especially when the Roy Boliver doll was presented ! .................................................. .................................................. .................
At the presentation on Sunday night there were some new random classification almost down to a trophy for " Veteran Springer who owns a Dart Board".
Yes ! fully back the team side of things always nice to see England at the top & certainly based on Germany's performance over the weekned they chased S/A all the way.
But it's an Open event to determine an individual World Champion surely ?
Think the World's is drifting in the wrong direction IMO but maybe a change at the top will move us forwards not backwards like it has been drifting, and before a get shot down in flames it's great to see a really big mix of nationality's taking part, even Johnny Brazil who did Riverdance on the Haggis Cannon !
Only my thoughts, it will be wrong !
Karl Pilkington is my hero !
