This is a post we have used in the past, every once in a while we feel the need to post it again and remind everyone that we play darts for fun and enjoyment, its not life and death and if you lose a match the sun will come up tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar.
Dart players in general are some of the most caring and generous people you will ever meet. When fellow darters or their families are in need the dart players in this community will without hesitation be there to help in any way possible, whether throwing a tournament to raise money or helping out with donating money, items, their time or services. Over the years, many of our MVDO players have become like family to other MVDO players. They go to each others parties, BBQs, weddings and other functions. The MVDO (and the SCDL and SIDA) is really a great group of people.
But unfortunately like in any organization or group of people you are going to have a few people who just don’t understand what it means to be a good sport. They ruin it for all the rest of us. These are a small percentage so please do not take this to mean bad sportsmanship is running rampant in the MVDO because it is not. We just have a few people out there that need a lesson in manners. So the MVDO Board thought it was a good time to remind everyone that above all else, the purpose of our dart league is fun, competition, excitement and enjoyment. Good sportsmanship should prevail in all cases. Win or lose, every MVDO league match or tournament should be enjoyable to everyone. The MVDO motto for 20+ years was "the sport that begins and ends with a handshake". We need to get back to that.
What this means is no matter the outcome of your match or game, you respectfully shake your opponents hand after the game or match has ended and you are courteous and respectable. You don't act like a sore loser, throw something, kick something, punch something, intimidate, insult or do any of those childish things. You act like an adult and a good sport. It is no fun for anyone when someone is acting like a 5 year old. This doesn’t mean take the emotion out of the game. We can all get excited when we win and we can all get disappointed and even mad when we lose. But we do not destroy property or throw stuff or act like an ass.
Also, when a player is at the line taking their turn, you can not heckel, talk to or scream at them. This is against the personal conduct rule 12.a and is grounds for forfeiting the match. You must remain quiet while they are shooting. This includes your teammates or friends who may not be involved in the match.
We all want to win and we all would like a plaque or trophy at the end but that should not be why we play the game. We play for the competition, the enjoyment and the break from the real world. A chance to hang out with our friends and to meet new ones. Play to win, but do not take it so seriously that you want to kill yourself or someone else if you lose a game or match.
