Darts Anyone?

For those who have the ESPN channel, have you noticed that they are now televising the game of Darts, with winnings up to a $1 million. Anyway, I became facinated by the game and wondered if there was ever an attempt to adopt the Dart Board game into an archery format with the same scoring system. Two archers start with the score of 501 and whoever gets to zero first wins the game, best of 11 games wins the match. As opposed to shooting for bullseye in FITA archery, the archer in "Archer Dart" will shoot for score and send an arrow(s) to certain areas of the board to achieve the neccesary score to win. Anyway, what do you FITA guys think about this?

The more important question:

Archery can't be that much less interesting than darts. Why aren't we on ESPN???
There's just more access to these sports for the average joe. Anyone can buy some darts at the local sporting good store and a board and play at home, the same can't be said for real archery equipment. There's tons of bars that have dart boards, bowling alleys are ubiquitous in this country, it's hard to not find one within driving distance of most anyone. Same can't be said for archery ranges.
