This is how I see it!

Well been a bit lazy on the blog but I think it is only good to write something worth writing about... SANDBAGGING!

Now for many people who read this will have no idea how this ties into DARTS as they play steel darts.  Steel is about do what you do and work hard enough to move up the ranks.  In SOFT-TIP darts there is players, sadly too many players, that think by cheating aka SANDBAGGING that they can go to major dart tournaments and win because they have gotten a handicap or rating they just plain don't deserve.  Thus they play against lower rated players then they normally would so they feel they have a better shot at winning.  This is not exclusive to darts... it's in golf, bowling and pool.  I played a golf tourny years a go as a 10 Handicap and after day two the leader in my division is par!!!  So do you think he wins respect ?? HELL NO I mean even if he was shooting good he should be like +14-+16 right??  So what is this player doing?  CHEATING to win something that really has no value because everyone there is looking at you saying "SANDBAGGER" or if they have a backbone "CHEATER".

Now the response I get when I call someone out on it??  "Everyone does it" or " "I don't like the guy that runs it".... So does that make it ok????

Toe Line Disappoinment Revisited

Handling Disappointment

Revisited from 2009

I first wrote this article back in 2009 when I was playing the PDC Tour, it fits in nicely with the Dartitis article and how to be better in general so enjoy!

How do you handle disappointment on the toe line?  I had just finished two weeks on the PDC tour (4 events) and already you hear people saying how poor they are playing or the results they have received. I was talking with James Wade and he was saying how bad he was right now, number 3 in the world who made a bit over 600K US last year playing darts feels like he sucks. So it does not matter if you are a league player or someone that travels the world playing darts everyone suffers disappointment but how you handle it will separate who you are.
