MAD Magazine

I'm a touch confused as to what Steve Brown's actually doing. He's done great work with the JDC, let's make no mistake there, but as far as I can see, the latest tweets he's put out are, as well as having gone through no spellchecking whatsoever, seemingly trying to create a huge network of amateur level events.

I mean this is fine, but if there's one thing that we've learned from the last quarter century of darts, then it's that splits help nobody and just cause shitloads of friction. I've not read a huge deal into it yet, until there's something professional I'm not going to bother, but what it looks like is a replica of the superleague/county level things, albeit with slightly larger catchment areas in each of them respectively.

What's this going to achieve? By all accounts, the whole superleague/county setup was largely self contained and immune from the whole BDO shitshow, and for the most part they're all diverting into one of a couple of separate entities (I've seen UKDA, Tri Nations, god knows what else). Making yet another rival thing, I really don't see the purpose. Someone give me a clue what's going on.
