Sad news, Eric Bristow the former world darts champion passed away today. I always liked his showmanship and his outspoken views.
I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

He was one of those players that you either loved or hated. He was very brash and arrogant, but a lot of that was just showmanship really, and it was just something he used to try to psych out opponents, often before a dart had even been thrown. But he was undoubtedly the best of his generation, and was the inspiration for so many people taking up the game.

It was the likes of Eric, John Lowe and Jockey Wilson who turned darts into an acceptable tv sport and yes, it was all about showmanship to sell it to the public.
