Chizzy will be champion one day....!

comment on the article

Dave Chisnal will get more chances to win the world title in the future I believe that Scott Waites can also go onto win the title as well providing they both stay in the BDO ranks(These guys are not quite ready for the switch to the PDC)
There is a good opportunity for both players to achieve this mainly down to the lack of competition within the BDO.Adams,O'Shea,Phillips and Hankey won't be around for ever so don't be too surprised if an unknown quantity emerges from the pack.

"Dave Chisnal will get more chances to win the world title in the future"

Not if he moves to the PDC organisationwithin this year. If he doesn't move then yes he has a tremendous chance of being World Champion. Same situation faces the young former Junior England Champion Stephen Bunting.

Proper funny how many people think he would do well in the PDC on the back of ONE TOURNAMENT. How many guys have we seen in the BDO do alright and flop in the PDC? The list is endless. He also needs to develop a personality because he's as dull as dish water.

i think that a few will move to pdc this year, and in doing this will open up a gap for chisnall.
if you compare averages, qualifiers for pdc and bdo professionals are near enough the same standard. chissy to stay for bdo, and maybe win, i think he is good enough.

Yeah because obviously you need a personality to win!! Look at Taylor, wins every week and is top notch, but is a nobbbb

Strange how everyone goes mad over one player after one tournament. Yes, he beat 3 of the top seeds but he has to do it consistently to be judged as a truly great player.

Klaasen, van Gerwen, etc have all proven that making the jump too soon can be detrimental to your career. Meanwhile, playerssuch as Barney and Mervyn King and even Co Stompe who did nothing for ages in the BDO have proven that sometimes it's better to stay in the 'lower leagues' honing your craft before switching. Webster, I'm pleased to say, is an exception even though he's still not quite good enough to compete with Taylor (but nobody is right now).

I really feel for some of the BDO players who have to put up with the rubbish some PDC fanboys spout about their averages not being up to scratch, as if that's a true reflection of their skill. Anyone who watched the semi-finals and final (and quarter-finals, in fact...and some of the second round matches) without a preset opinion that the BDO players would be 'worse' than those in the PDC regardless of how they played, know that there is a wealth of talent in the BDO. It's the organisation itself that is letting them down, and that's why a takeover might be a good thing. Having only two televised majors each year is a total joke, there used to be four just a couple of years ago and even then the PDC had more to offer. Now it's so lopsided it's laughable. I guarantee that if all of the main guard in the BDO (Adams, O'Shea, Fitton, Hankey, Waites etc) went to the PDC there would be nothing to separate them from the pack currently chasing Taylor.
