Darts fans are sticking up for Gerwyn Price after 'disgraceful' behaviour from the crowd at the 2022 PDC World Championships.
Price played the role of the 'pantomime villain' once again on Saturday evening during his quarter-final loss to Michael Smith.
However, some fans believed the behaviour of those in attendance at the Ally Pally went over the mark as Price was visibly enraged by the jeers.
At one point, Price pointed out to officials one fan in particular who had been putting him off every throw.
Some fans took to social media to condemn the behaviour that was directed towards the defending champion.
"Crowd were absolutely appalling & have been all tournament. The abuse of @Gezzyprice has been shocking," one fan fumed.
Another added: "The abuse towards Gerwyn price tonight was shocking absolutely disgusting. Any person that boos another darts player shouldn't be allowed at the arena."
"Crowd have been a******** all tournament. …Bring it to Scotland ….we will show you how it's done properly," a third tweeted.
A fourth said: "I’m not his biggest fan but he’s right the crowd are an absolute disgrace and have been all tournament."

Another added: "Absolutely gutted. Really don’t want to moan about the crowd but they have been disgraceful all the way through."
Price himself took to social media after the result to label the crowd 'cheats' through an Instagram story.
The result puts Smith through to a mouthwatering clash with James Wade on Sunday.
