This is a darts thread!

Yes - the WDF was run by this chap Olly Croft (and his wife) from the early days. Kind of like a family run enterprise. Darts got massive and he still exercised total control over the sport. Darts then got unpopular and the big players couldn’t make any money because sponsors were leaving the game. Olly Croft did nothing about this so the players broke away and started their own World Championship, which is now the PDC.

A decision which in hindsight now looks like a spectacularly good call.
