Manchester - View Point

By John Lowe, Mar 15 2013 10:18AM

Well, my thoughts about last nights PL, and the crowd (not all of them I add) really stoked up a few fires, Facebook, and Twitter messages coming well into the night, I like most of you, sat at home and watched, but I did get reports from the venue, and they where not nice, I admire the way the PDC and SKY carried on with the production, it would have been disastrous to stop, and for the record, many years ago at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Oldham, I was playing Cliff Lazarenko in the final of the BDO Dry Blackthorn Cider tournament, it was live on ITV, and there was 2000 people present, Blackthorn put the Cider on at just 50p per pint, a recipe for disaster, and it all kicked off half way through the final, Tony Green was the Caller, and he wanted to stop the match, both me and Cliff though it better to play on, keeping the TV Camera's on the match, and not the crowd, who where going at it big time, it worked, security managed to control the trouble, and when we finished the final it was all over, so you see guys, it does not matter who the organisers are, the problem will always be Alcohol, and the minority who let's face it cannot handle it, to top it all, bring two sets of football fans from the same City together in a confined space, and you have the right mix for mayhem, darts fans do not need segregating, sadly football fans do, and are, I just hope the guys who orchestrated last nights disturbance, have been photographed, and will be refused permission to any remaining, or future PL events, we can all keep quite, pretend it is not a problem, or we can face up to the fact, and do something about it, if nothing is seen to be done, I fear for the future, and the saftey of the real fans, who will begin to stay away.
