I'd like to see distances, comments on disc selection, etc. This highlight reel just looked like a bunch of dudes tossing frisbees around near water.
To be fair, this video is definitely targeted at people who don't understand (and obsess) over the game like DGCR folks. This is not a bad thing. Highly edited, slick production, multiple storylines, etc. Great for trying to keep the attention of somebody that doesn't care about disc selection, distance and whatnot.

However, it would be VERY nice if the USDGC would take the time to release a relatively 'raw' version for those of us that just want to see the discs flying.

Its a valid complaint. 2 minutes in an editing program and those black spaces are gone. Very unprofessional to leave them in before uploading to Youtube. Especially when the rest of the product looks so polished.
