Anderson’s manager believes yellow and red card system should be introduced in darts

Gary Anderson complained about the unsportsmanlike behaviour of certain players during the last PDC World Darts Championship and his manager believes something further should be done.

Tommy Gilmour who runs Dunvegan Darts said that a yellow and red card system should be introduced to help issues on the oche.

“Stand up and be counted. They’ve not got the b**** in the middle of a match to blow the whistle like in football and say to a player ‘don’t do that’ or ‘smarten yourself up’. I think a yellow or red card, a public warning,” said Gilmour to Darts World.

“If somebody is not playing by the rules, front them up. Treat them like a bully.

“I was actually very pleased and very proud of Gary. He had a problem during the Premier League and he said to me that if he hadn’t have lost, he would have said something.

“But he knew if he said something after defeat it would have been sour grapes. I think that was a wee slight turning point for him.

“It’s a shame. Gary speaks very highly of Mensur, what a nice fella he is. I was not in the least bit critical of Gary. I was going to make a complaint. It was 23 or 26 seconds for throwing darts.

"But there are other people in there who have the jolly jolly faces that are doing things but they are not getting pulled up for it.

“There’s a few in there where you would think butter wouldn’t melt. But Gary says they are absolutely murder. But front them up, let the public know.

“If there’s any cheating at all, in any shape or form, clicking your heels, stamping your feet, loudly talking. They all do it.”
