R.I.P Eric Bristow
#1
One of the greatest dart players to throw a dart, 5 time world champion and a 5 time World Masters champion, Eric broke the mould for a professional darts player, he was young and brash in a sport of older much duller players, affected by dartitus his game waned and he brought through the greatest dart player of all time.  The sport of darts owes him a debt it can never pay.

R.I.P Eric "The Crafty Cockney" Bristow.
"I have been over to the Kop at Anfield and was on my way back when a policeman took hold of a red scarf as it was a ragamuffin's. I told him off. 'Don't you do that,' I said. 'That's precious.'"
