Fact is, the Pros are a very small proportion of the DG world.
The PDGA is largely unconcerned with growing the sport on a recreational level. Just look at their expenditures to see where their focus is at.
This is a larger part of the quote that clarifies my thought process.
The focus of the PDGA is not determined by who is on the board, but by how they vote to spend money.
I don't care if the board was populated by four Grandmothers from Kansas City. If they spend money on tournaments and tournament coverage, then they are telling you what is important to them: Pros and the Pro tournaments.
When they start spending the same kind of money on grass roots development (schools, kids and youth leagues, among other things), then I'll drink the kool-aid and say they are run for the good of the everyday common player.
