Dart Cheats in Fat Bastard Sports

Yet again the English have shown when they are getting beaten they will try any sort of grubby cheating tactic to win. Then there is the typical denial.

Your link is kaput.

Speaking of darts as a sport, England was going to ban the game as an evil game of chance until Foot Anakin came to the rescue. He owned a pub and challenged the law in court, where he threw three 20s, and challenged the court to match it. Nobody could and the judge ruled darts was a game of skill.

Talking of public houses. In the early 1900’s, legislation prohibited "games of chance" in public houses, and the game of darts was considered to fall in this category.

In 1908, a pub owner from Leeds, Yorkshire, by the name of Foot Anakin was taken to court for allowing people to play darts in his establishment. He decided to challenge this ruling, and offered to prove that darts was not a "game of chance", but a “game of skill”. A dartboard was set up in court and Foot Anakin proved his skill by throwing 3 darts in the number 20. He then challenged any court official to do the same. One of the court clerks decided to take up the challenge and failed. The judge then ruled that darts was in fact a "game of skill" and dismissed the case. This ruling boosted the game even more, which led to more competitions in public houses.
