Time to go
Down to 6th in the world, he's won everything there is to win, yet has managed 3 finals out of the last 16. At 56, he's talked about slowing up. Better to retire now while he's still close to the top or should he continue, potentially along the downward curve his career has taken over the last couple of years?
Time to go
No, I always enjoy watching him lose. Wouldn't want him in the commentary box as he doesn't seem to possess any kind of personality or sense of humour so I hope he carries on playing.
No, definitely no role in the commentary box for him.
On the other side of the coin, he's level with the great John Lowe on 28 WC appearances each. Fitting for him to beat that?
I'm not much of a darts fan tbh, but I did watch his match tonight.
There's an Englishman, the greatest player of all time?, playing a Dutchman in England and some people are booing him? What's all that about?
I can see that he seems to be a bit of a cock, but so do the rest of the players, and the commentators and the majority of the crowd.
I can't understand why people don't seem to like him?
He has always been outspoken and quite scathing in his remarks about players, TV, commentators, sponsors etc.. and whilst he was the main man, nobody could argue.. he was the best.
The problem with Taylor now he is no longer the main man, he is still spouting off and it just sounds like sour grapes.
Also with darts I dont think it is a nationality thing. You have your favourite and want him to win. Personally I like the 2 Dutchmen.
He has won over £500,000 in prize money in 2016 , more than all the pricks slagging him off in this thread have earned combined I reckon. Is he bothered , I doubt it .
I'm guessing he is tied in with various sponsors contracts so can only go when they are finished or else have to refund large amounts of money.
Then again maybe he just loves to get up there and play and as someone stated in the thread if he is still earning half a million a year then that's an incentive to hang around.
Possibly a question of what does he do next. As it appears that a career in the commentary box is off the cards then his options are possibly limited to sitting in the pub and the odd sporting diners as guest speaker. If that is the case then I would be tempted to hang around on the pro circuit for as long as my ranking allowed me.
He needs to recover the £2M in assets from his divorce. Why should he retire when it's his major source of income? Keep playing, keep losing. Hope Anderson beats MvG in the final.
Taylor's a convicted sex offender (aka nonce). That's something the darts establishment and Sky have tried to hide for years, with considerable success.
All he has to do is show up and play darts. Something people do to pass the time in pubs. Like playing dominos or cards. If he can still make money out of it, why retire?
The match against Barney could have gone either way a couple of big check outs by RB swung the game.
Still think PT has a major left in him.
Love watching the POWER a true legend in the game of darts.
