The world of darts mainly reacted suprised after the decision from the PDC to replace Gary Anderson with nine different players in the Premier League Darts.

The Scotsman had to pull out after being not adequately recovered from a back injury. Instead of picking one replacement, the PDC chose for stars of the future and local favourites.
Many prominent people did not see this decision coming. For example Michael Smith and Kim Huybrechts published a tweet with just the text ‘Wow’. The selected players were grateful for their invitation and wished Anderson a speedy recovery.
Dartsnews has made an overview with some comments from darts players and pundits on social media.
