Belgian commentators condemn behavior of crowd toward Gerwyn Price: 'The crowd should realize that this shouldn't be done"

Gerwyn Price on Sunday night failed to win the World Grand Prix for the second time in his career. 'The Iceman' went down 5-2 in the final against Luke Humphries.

Price has been vilified by darts fans for longer than this past week. It began in 2018 when he got involved in an altercation with Gary Anderson during the final of the Grand Slam of Darts.

Since then, the crowd almost always sides with his opponent and regularly boo Price. Thus, during the final, the 38-year-old Welshman was booed again by a large part of the audience. "The crowd should realize this shouldn't be done," it was said on Belgian channel VTM 2 through Rudy Lanssens and Erik Clarys.

"This is never conducive to performing well," Clarys continued. "Although he is gradually getting used to it I think. But it's not nice, really the crowd should just cheer such a top player."
