    The long overdue Darts thread

    Did anybody watch the game against Van Gerwin last night?? Hankey was buckled on stage and could just about throw the darts. At one stage he looked like he was having a stroke. Sky sports commentators making excused for him saying he had sinus problems

    Ear infection doesn't seem to be as bad tinnitus it was last night.

    Hankey's manager:

    "The docs have confirm that @TedHankeyDarts has had a stroke he's got very high cholesterol and blood pressure and diabetes got to have 6/8 weeks rest and will need more tests in the coming weeks the doctors report will confirm this"

    He's too attached to them. Mad into their internationals over there. The England captain. Can't see him coming across, wouldn't bring much to the PDC, at least Hankey has his character whether he's a good player or not.

    In fairness to him when he played in the early 2000 with the PDC he done very well, reaching the semi -finals of the matchplay in 2001 and also the news of the world in 97 on both occasions losing to Taylor.


    With the BDO he is big fish in a very small pond.
    Hope he never comes across to the PDC as I can’t stand the smug b#stard

    Such a difference now. The standard is far superior now, but there still do be plenty of 89 v 92 average matches.

    There should be a dedicated darts thread, especially with the World Champs coming up.

    If a GAA thread can be a sticky on a Rovers forum, then any thread can be one.
