Sometimes dead threads should stay dead.

A pro's bag is private property. If they want to share it, fine. If not, that's their prerogative.

That is not how it should be. I don't agree that pros should be able to hide their discs if they want to. To me, if you're hiding something, you're doing something you shouldn't. Just my opinion, of course.

If you're playing casual, it's one thing. Any player in a tourney should be willing to show all their discs if requested.

This thread is about a video of Dave's bag, not a potential rule violation.

Hiding something? Just because someone isn't cool with you drooling over their plastic doesn't mean they're carrying illegal discs. If you think they're throwing an illegal disc (too firm, overweight, hole/crack in the flightplate), confront them about it during the round. If you're unsatisfied with how things are resolved, inform the TD and let them handle their responsibility. Outside of a tournament round, it's none of your business.

We're quite lucky to have such close contact to pros. We need to remember that they aren't obligated to bend over backwards for us though.

This thread should have stayed dead, but like I said...while we're here...

I just typed a long response, then deleted it. Let's just say I basically agree with you, and I did not mean to imply that there was a rule violation. Personally, I would love to show off my bag to anyone wanting to see it. Especially if I was a pro. But, apparently not everyone feels the same way.
