Farewell to Waddell - The Voice of Darts

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm distraught at the loss of Sid Waddell, the (more or less) Geordie Voice of Darts, whose inimitable bollocks (Cambridge degree or not) set the lowbrow seal on many a bleary-eyed night in my youth, before collapsing onto the pit after a piss-up in the NAAFI, or wherever. Gems I remember include "Eric Bristow, the preying (sic) mantis, preying on another opponent" and "Wee Jocky Wilson - ah, he knows every trick in the book". Quite what 'tricks' you can play in a game of darts, other than outright cheating - or perhaps farting violently as your oppo lines up double-top to win - we will now never learn, as Sid has gone to the great 180 in the sky.

  2. Good, easily the, most irritating voice on tele, and he started the craze for irritating geordie voiceovers.
