Must admit it was funny seeing how in the most exciting parts of the game the audience more bothered about chanting football songs at each other, well Sky you got what you wanted but its now gone too far down the other way, i also love the fact that Sky stopped showing people in fancy dress as there was so much chanting from large sections of the crowd, and of course Dave Clark and co were not allowed to say anything untowards.  This championship has by far been the worse for fan behavioir ive ever seen at a Darts comp and i'm using the term 'Fan' in the broardest sense.

Its the first tourney ive seen where the football style chants seem to be more prevalent each game, before it seemed to be just normal chanting but there seems to be a darker undertone to this years event, as usual Sky act like the proverbial Ostrich.

I went to the darts once.  The Premier League in Cov.  The compere came on beforehand and asked that we make as much noise and chant to create an atmosphere for the cameras.

Wouldn't go again.  Not because of the chanting but because it's hardly a spectacle when you can't see the board unless you've got tables right at the front.  You're better off watching it at home.

I do agree that it's out of order with all the booing and chanting whilst the players are at the ockey though.

BDO World Champs is No'1 Love  You can feel the intensity in a match as it nears a conclusion, making the pressure much harder for the bdo lads to play through.

All that's missing at the PDC Worlds is Uncle Barry going on stage and thanking the crowds for making it the best darts experience ever?
Report the silverback December 31, 2011 8:25 AM GMT
I agree with the poster who suggested the atmosphere this year has been "darker"

The chanting has been quite pathetic really in terms of its content.

Even early in the last set of Part v Wade, "tables" and "seats" were chanting and pointing at each other without watching the darts - one of the most gripping matches you'll ever see.

I would love it if somehow they could replicate the fantastic atmosphere from Germany in the Euros. Singing all the way throughout the matches but massively furthering the overall experience. Adie Lewis o-le Adie Lewis o-le.

That kind of thing - and songs like VDVs can make it a pretty special place to be.

The problem isn't the chanting, it's that the crowd are of such low average intelligence that the chants aren't even funny.  Unfortunately Britain scores heavily in number of thickos per 100 population.  It's embarrassing how stupid they are.

Let them act like tools all they want, and if they want to boo players coming on stage, then thats unfortunate, but it doesnt detract from the event.

When they boo players as they are about to throw they should be chucked out, booing Part yesterday was absolutely atrocious. And for Armchair Idiot, this is Johns Parts livelihood, and the difference between him winning the event and losing in the quarters is £175,000 approx, and if he is put off by the antics of some morons then its time for darts to take a look at itself

Agree about the Winter Garden post, Ive been regularly, and never seen anything unsportsmanlike there. The Prem League is just a way for top players to rake in a load of cash and nobody really gives a fluck until the final stages

To be fair, again, to the fans doing this they're hardly breaking the law are they? If there was a law against being loud and boozed up then about 60% of the population would be currently inside. I don't agree there's anything intrinsically wrong with a good boozed up football atmosphere, as long as there's no actual violence involved.

If anyone wants to blame anyone blame the organisers who obviously promote this type of atmosphere. If they didn't allow it, it wouldn't happen.

Very much disagree with you Stu, but you're right about the organisers who are entirely responsible for this mess.

Where do you draw the line on crowd involvement then?

Hugh - I go to football with a group, we get boozed up we chant etc etc. What's wrong with that?

I also think you're a little rose-tinted thinking there was never trouble at football. There were deaths in the olden days, let alone trouble. But that is a different issue anyway - all football fans don't cause violence, that's just a Daily Mail view of it all.

Never mind when they're barracking KJP on a crucial double.

I think crowd involvement is an integral part of the sport but there has to be a cap on it.

As someone else mentioned earlier...the Germans were fantastic in the Euro's (Dusseldorf?) making plenty of noise for a great atmosphere, but there was nothing to criticise about them, as they were proper fans.

It comes to something when I'm praising Krauts and putting the boot in on alleged Brits! Cry

Think we're talking a little at cross-purposes. You mean the atmosphere only at darts, not just crowds in general. Not necessarily disagreeing, just don't think it's the fans' fault in this, as they're encouraged.
