    I thought IBF is rolling out 21-points system this year, why AE 2006 is still using the old 15 points system ?

    I think AE is the oldest star event with lotta history.
    They should keep the old scoring, feather shuttles, tea and biscuit for refreshment :) I also like to see one or 2 royalty presence at the tournament

    Here here...

    Look at the money currency they're still upholding...
    and what a disaster the Euro did for other countries.:crying:

    Prices are nowadays what they used to be in guilders!!!
    1 euro = 2,20 guilders... so that's a raise of 220%:eek::eek:
    And they wonder why we're in economical recession:confused::confused::confused:

    Don't fancy the 21 points system either...
    But I'm afraid that commercial benefits are more important than
    anything:mad:

    Hey.. let's make the game faster!!!
    Next thing you know: darts will be counted down from 201
    instead of 501....
