he was a regular on Alan Brazil’s show too

Butch Wilkins seemed a decent sort.
Used to like his reference to “put a bit of swazz on the ball”

Eric Bristow, the Crafty Cockney has passed away aged 60. A true sporting colossus. R.I.P.


#506

Eric the wifebeater Bristow.


#507

The greatest dart player ever.

This is terrible news.


#508

RIP Eric Bristow

He was always going to die young.

Typically, he hit the 60 before checking out.


#510

Wonderful :clap:


#511

He finished on tops.


#512

Rip Eric

Keith Deller practically in tears here.

The Aaron Ramsey curse strikes again


#516


Jocky and Eric will renew their rivalry in the sky with Dave Lanning and Sid with the Commentary. RIP.

#517

Of the main protagonists in the 1989 World final, which was the first darts match I ever watched, both players, Jocky and now Eric are gone. Sid Waddell is gone. Martin Fitzmaurice is gone. Even BBC presenter Tony Gubba is gone. Only Tony Green is still around.

While I was too young to ever see him win a world title, I loved darts right from the moment I chanced upon it that Saturday evening because of Eric and I’ll always be thankful to him for that.

Every dart player today stands on his shoulders.


#518

Sid Waddell is no loss (around here) anyway.


#519

Sid Waddell (the commentator) was a dose.


#520

As are all his disciples I’d imagine.


#521

One of those lads that swallowed a dictionary.


#522

He became so in latter years. During the 80s when he burst on scene he was box office.

My earliest darting memory is of the crafty cockney refusing a dart at bull and Keith Deller checking out 138 I think it was. He was arrogance personified and great for the sport.
