How do you know that people wouldn't bet? They're many people on this site who like darts - plus it's a way to gain points.

Yeah, I'll do it, sounds fun. I think a lot of people are in to poker too.

Dude, I knew you were going to take that the wrong way, I even tried to prevent it. All I wanted to know was how many people you would think would bet on it. No where did I say people wouldn't, nor did I say people would.

I didn't take it the wrong way, I'm just saying that even if people didn't like the darts they would still bet as its a way to gain some points. Hell, I don't like Tennis but I've been betting.

Well there have been a number of bookies that have been posted that haven't gone over, so they haven't been done again. For example, last week I posted a NASCAR event, and it got a grand total of 3 bets. So, this week I'm not going to do the event. Some of the ROH bookies I posted last week didn't get anymore than 1 or 2 bets, so next time I may only do the matches with the most well known participants.

People bet on Tennis because Nadal and Federer are pretty much locks for the final, and Federer owns on grass and Nadal owns on clay. You don't have to be a tennis fan to know that either. I'm not sure many people know about Darts unless they follow it though. Just because points are for the taking doesn't mean people will bet.

When I asked the question I wanted you to respond with "I think it will get a lot of bets", or "I think it won't do all that well" or "I'm not really sure, but it's worth a try", not respond with asking me a question regarding a statement I never made. I have no idea how many bets it will get.

But yeah, like most things, there's no harm in trying something once. I have no problem doing it I really only wanted to know how popular you thought it would be, this whole conversation could have been avoided if you had just answered the question .

I think something cool that we could do for some sports in their offseason right now (NHL, NBA) would be to bet on where FA or maybe even some potential trade candidates, will end up. Maybe a list of a few teams, an other option, and an option to re-sign/stay with the team.

Maybe a few bookies on who will win MVP next year in both leagues, or who'll win the Superbowl, Stanley Cup, etc. but a bookie on FA or trade candidates seems pointless.

I think the best 'futures' bookies, as they are called, are to do "who will win the championship?" at the start of the playoffs. People don't have to wait that long for their points and you can update the odds throughout. If I set up one at the start of the season and continuously update the odds it would get hardly any bets till near the end I would think.

Darts? Honestly? Sure, you don't like tennis, but everyone has heard of the players. I don't like rugby but I still hear about it in the news and bet on it. Not exactly something you see on the news every week.
William Hill has bets for darts but fuck me if I'm going to add a vBookie for it. Shall we have bets on whether it rains or not on any given day in a certain part of the world? That's a good way to get points.
