    Default So curling is a recognized sport but darts isn't.....?

    Never watched curling before but just had olympics on and watched a few minutes of it.

    So this is a fucking sport is it. Some guy or bird slowly releases a big clay pot or whatever it is and two others brush the ice as it goes down ??

    And darts where two guys play a match of up to 3 hours sometimes throwing accurately for most of that time fails to get the recognition ?

    I know which I think is the more skillful

    And while I am on it then if pistol shooting is a recognized sport too then why not darts ? I mean yes the guys can shoot accurately but do they expend as much energy as a darts thrower - I think not.

    Darts is a big money game now - curlers and pistol shooters will disappear into obscurity once olympics are over.

    curling requires both tactical and a very small amount of athletic ability.

    I recognise all winter olympic events as sports as i do bowls, snooker etc. But i`ll be damned to hell if i ever recognise darts as nothing more than a pub game

    Shooting something sliding down the ice then sweeping up the mess after wards there's a sport.

    Wonder if darts could still be held in a drinking bar?

    OR outside in the cold blizzard for the winter Olympics.


    Or maybe underwater at the end of the pool as a water event.

    Blindfolded darts for the specia never mind thats dangerous.

    The drinking and smoking darts players of the 80s are still remembered by the toffs who don't realise how the game has transformed. Three weeks ago 10,000 went to watch the first night of the premier league at the O2 arena. Go figure.

    Lets see the GB team win the curling gold medal then go on a tour of the country and see how many come watch them - I will reserve the phone booth near where I live in case they decide to come here

    But the sport is still predominently played by tubby beer drinkers in there 40s who learnt the trade in their local. You dont have to carry around a bottle of water or a towel to play a game of darts but yet more often than not they do and its neccesary because the fat out of shape b*stards get out of breath picking up their darts.

    Tiger Woods/golf don't count then. Plenty of world-class golfers are fat smoker boozers. A 60-year-old was one shot away from winning The Open last year.


    10,000 at the 02 is amazing. Darts pisses all over boxing.

    Hmmmm, abit of a generalisation there mate. James Wade won the Premier League last year, he aint a fat slob, others to mention Simon Whitlock, Colin Osbourne, Paul Nicolson, Jelle Klaasen, Co Stompe etc

    Since Tiger came on the scene most Golfers were not that bothered about weight and stamina, Tiger reinvigorated the sport and took it to another level, the others had to change to keep up.
    The others ya mentioned are fair enough, they are running around for anywhere between 2-4hrs. Although Butterbean done alright in his day

    I think the majority are quite fit and in good health now, but still you can be a great golfer without concentrating on fitness to much look at Phil Mickelson world number three and has bigger tits than your average page three bird.

    I wouldn't mind those women playing curling on my kitchen floor or bathtub. At least it would be cleaner after they were done with their brushing and sweeping.
