I wouldn't call the disc flips since there's nothing technically against the rules about them. Only way I can see a call ever being warranted, let alone actually called is if he's taking more than...

I'm not so sure it would be necessarily change disc/bag choices so much as shot selection choices. If there's a risk of going OB and having to re-throw, more players (especially top level players)...

I can see testers and/or rentals if the shop has a place for you to throw them to try them out (preferably a good sized field area, but a course works too). But even then, there would be dedicated...

Seems like a solid argument for eliminating "last in-bounds" as an option for OB throws, something I've been an advocate for for years. Such a rule change would have a huge impact on course design,...

What Chuck said. If the disc is on the ground, the ground is a playing surface and that's where you have to mark and play it from.

The only argument I could see for being able to mark and play...

The Steelers have 6 Super Bowl wins, so I doubt it's that. Doubt it's a 4 at all. At least, not intentionally. Pretty sure the buildings are simply the prominent ones from the skyline.

I don't know. Most people are aware that they don't have to stand in a puddle to make a throw, and if they aren't aware, they certainly ask if the situation arises because no one wants to stand in a...

There's nothing in the rule that says that the disc has to come to rest being directly supported by the target (specifically the bottom and inner wall of the tray). Only that it must be supported. ...

New England isn't as bad as PA. Of course it varies by state and sometimes town but you can buy beer, wine, and spirits in any quantity you wish and usually all in the same place. Few restrictions...

When they only have two cameras at most, it's tough to cover the second and third cards. Nothing to do with respect. Everything to do with resources.

The bolded would be because there is no such thing as "actual course SSA" at all. It's not an anomaly at all. The ratings formula is not intended to rate courses, it is intended to rate players. ...
