    Good point Elbmek


    That didn't occur to me

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Yes mate, Sutton Coldfield, I played mainly for the Boot Inn, my local. I once played away to a player who was one of the top ones in the league and beat him 2-0; second game being a brush!! (he didn't get away). As I was becoming inconsistent (age) I decided to give it up.

    Bulseye was amazing - I used to love it in it's originial run!

    It was proper Weekend TV I think before all these talent shows became the host and Jim Bowen certainly made the show and Darts in-general more popular than ever!

    What a host Jim was - the best no doubts!!

    Bullseye came at just the right time for Darts, which was having a boost in popularity in the mid 1980s, when Sid Waddle, Jockey Wilson & Eric Bristow were all household names.
