  1. Has a great eye mask…

  2. Darts finally going to get interesting again welcome home Ted

  3. Good on you Ted. Get stuck in and let's see that silky smooth throw again.

  4. Nice to see you back ted..

  5. Solid attitude and solid advice for myself as a new competitor.

  6. Wish you the very best Ted. A great player but moreover a fantastic character.

  7. Legend

  8. I met Ted in 2008 a few months before won his second BDO title and he was a proper gentleman and gave me an autograph and shook my hand. I really hope he gets back to the Ted Hankey we know, as when he is flowing he is a class player and a joy to watch.

  9. God bless you Ted, I hope you do great! God speed. 🙂

  10. Never count him out.

  11. This guy is a prick. Defending Price. He isn't even aware of what that wanker gets up to on the oche ffs
    If Price was to behave like that against Hankey – and some of you KNOW how far Price went even if Hankey was too blind to notice, do you think a bad tempered old bastard would just stand there and take it and then pat Price on the back and say…oh well, it's good for the sport? Fuck off.
    Hankey is finished anyway as a darts player

  12. The count love to see him back. 1 of best 180 hitters av seen in the game.

  13. Has a nice throwing action also

  14. Good luck Ted you are a top bloke.
