Dartitis pronounced dart-eye-tis is a condition suffered by dart players who for some psychological reason cannot release the dart. A lot of dart players suffer from it but it was first recognised when former 5 times champion of the World Eric Bristow found he was having trouble releasing his darts in 1986.
Now a psychologist James Douglas has come up with a cure which seems to work in most cases. He asks the dart player to aim darts at a picture of Gordon Brown which is pinned to the dartboard and so far no player has had any problem throwing the darts. It is an incredibly effective cure.
