Really?

I'd ask young Jamie Lewis if he agrees.

He's a sex offender. A proper wrong-un.

"There will never be another athlete like him again" :lol:

I remember when Andy Fordham had to quit because he was too tired from being too overweight, crazy sport but I'll admit it can be thoroughly entertaining.

Rob Cross did to Taylor what Taylor did to Jamie Lewis, the big difference is that Lewis missed chances in the semi whereas Taylor had no chance in the final. It wasn't even close.

The sexual conviction that Sky Sports never mention, despite showing montage after montage of him.

In this climate, it's truly astonishing that Taylor continues to get a bye from the press for his conviction.

It really is. The Johnny come lately dart experts are unaware (or ignorant) to his past. That's why thousands were singing his name last night.

Bizarrely, lots of people at work are defending Taylor over the conviction. Apparently, it was all overplayed, and it wasn't really Indecent Assault, they were asking for it etc.

Roll on my relocation away from here...

Take it no one here watches the other World Championship?

Cracking match and so unlucky for McGeeney. Congrats to Duzza though.

I saw it. Thought Durrant was going to throw it away at 6-4, his doubles went to pieces. Fair play for pulling out that 149 checkout in the final set, that was the clincher. A great final.
