Someone explain to me why it is reasonable to require/expect people to play for money in order to play organised disc golf?

Team sports are a wildly different thing from solo sports. Especially the ones where each individual action is a pretty much discrete event that requires focused attention to detail.

Just to get the facts straight here: The story does not say that the call was made before the result was known. It even indicates the opposite, I would say.

What I really don't get is people coming in this sub-forum, asking about the rules and then getting peeved when told the rules.

And getting outright indignant, when they realise that there is...

If there is an objective measure, i cannot find it. There used to be a specific time limit for seconding a call. That is gone now too.

I think promptly is good enough. Call it when you see it.

It _is_ us, the players, that care. A care we express via our representation in PDGA.

Because it is a competitive game. There needs to be some limits so we are all playing on the reasonably even...

Technically that would have my full support. Practically, I am not so sure it is a good thing to raise obstacles for people wanting to put the time in to be TD. Different requirements for different...

The talk about ratings caps seems a bit comical to me given that this is the first time the field has filled up this fast.

And the idea that it would elevate the prestige is also bit entertaining...

If you are bent on combining rounds, yes, it is the best way to do it.

But what is done is "These rounds could have been played in the same conditions - so they must have been". That catches some...

Could it not be argued that "we don't know" would be the reason for not combining them?
Is it not one the core ideas in the ratings system that you do not make such judgements?

Those two results...

Could not disagree more. Yes, the rating is a big thing about the membership. But that is due to it being official. Not because it is something that is concocted semi-secretly. Non-members can still...

Why is it done at all?

I cannot come up with a single good reason for it.

And Allurex just pointed out a very good reason not to.

Open source the rating calculations. Now.

The letter of the rule is that you have 30 seconds after "the playing area is clear and free of distractions."

That clearly resets the 30 seconds if a distraction occurs.

And Chuck is correct: Many top tier tournaments in Europe...
