VIDEO: This is why an on-form Van Gerwen is good for darts
After some periods in the darting doldrums so to speak, Michael van Gerwen has began producing some of his best darts again albeit during one block of Premier League Darts action.
Matthew Edgar for Edgar TV in a recent video discussed why an on-form Van Gerwen is good for darts.
"Van Gerwen is a household name and he is name outside of darts. He's recognisable because he's had so much TV time and exposure. Worldwide he's a household name," he said on Edgar TV.
"With that it will help create new stars so by people beating Van Gerwen, that gets headlines. Sometimes the headlines are Van Gerwen are lost is more than other people are winning and that's what steals headlines. If Van Gerwen isn't playing well but losing, it won't create new stars, it's going to give us that negative headline."
"You need a master in every sport, every actviity needs that winner, that guy to beat. Whether that is golf with Tiger Woods. You need to show that the game can be mastered."
