Des Jacklin earlier this week resigned as BDO Chairman with immediate effect after two years at the helm in which he went through a tumultuous reign to say the least.
Jacklin started his reign by lifting the restrictions on players going to Q-School from the BDO which was heralded by many; as well as securing the future of the BDO on TV in the form of their Eurosport deal.
There was issues though with moving from Lakeside to the Indigo at the O2, the fiasco involving the World Masters; as well as players not knowing their prize money for the former and then having to wait past the deadline for it.
He took to Facebook after releasing his short statement on Monday through the BDO to give an extended 2,700 statement in which he touches on all the issues including accusations that he used his role to give his wife, Paula who plays on the Ladies tour special dispensation in terms of seedings for tournaments.
As well as moving away from the Lakeside, a new company being set up between the counties to supposedly kill the BDO by working with the WDF as well as what he had to go through to make the O2 happen in the end.
