Imagine if Will had lost the playoff and the controversy uproar!

I do not believe prodigy is supplying the video guy. I think that is part of the "Futhering the Disc" Tour that Will and I think Paige are doing!!

People need to learn to learn how to be humble and to practice humility.

People are going to hate on team prodigy just like people hate the Yankees in MLB and the Heat in the NBA.

Nope, that doesn't work. Maybe it's...

Yep, thats it. It's the "Futhering The Disc Tour".

"Futhering"
futhering [Fuh-thur-ing]
1. An Irish word meaning to fiddle with something.
2. A word used to describe an act of foreplay without being overly explicit.

I know I've said this 100 times in posts on this site but I Feel like if I don't put it, then I just sound like someone just running their mouths.

I am a PDGA marshal and have marshaled the last two worlds and will again this summer.

I highly doubt we would ever overrule a call such as that unless it was insanely obvious that it was wrong. Our rules are written for players to make the calls and while we do have to have marshals to avoid certain situations, we don't like to interject our opinions. If the group can't make the call / doesn't want to, then our call is what stands.

I've been asked to make calls before by groups on IB / OB etc and I ask the group ahead of time their opinion. Sometimes they say "well we all pretty much think it's out and just want to make sure" and then I say "well I don't even need to see it then. it's out." Sometimes it's "we are split and just can't decide." At that point I Remind them that we want players to make calls and that if they want my opinion, it will automatically per rule overrule whatever the majority of the group thinks.

We also, getting back to the point of the question, have the right to overrule anything at anytime. I have done this a total of 1 time and I have probably marshaled 30 - 40 rounds of major competition. I have also had players make calls that required seconds and I agreed with them so I seconded them.

But I highly doubt I would ever overrule a foot fault call unless it was an interpretation of a foot fault - i.e. someone said that the foot fault happened because a secondary supporting point was behind the lie but not in line with the basket (which obviously only requires 1 supporting point). But as far as "um, I don't think he foot faulted" I doubt that would ever occur.

Contrary to popular belief, we aren't in the bushes look at people's feet each throw. The Marshals role is primarily be present, be available for questions, handle situations of inappropriate behavior and randomly step in when asked / needed.
Thanks Robert, seems like the right balance, see you in July for the Midtown Chiropractic Raleigh Disc Golf Championships, ya, you should play

I am really confused because if you look at the tab of the page it says furthering and but the URL is futhering!!!! and spell check likes furthering and not futhering. I think we need to change it to "advancing".

They misspelled it originally and facebook doesn't allow you to change your URL, so it's stuck. However they were able to change the name of the page.

Furthering is the correct spelling.

I haven't heard anyone mention it but one thing for sure is that Will making a bird on 18 turned out to be his saving grace. I would assume he knew that he had a 1 throw lead with one to play. Being that there was ob water on that hole most would play a conservative drive, lay up and tap out for par plus a 1 throw win. Even with a good drive and a 25 footer left for two I would lay that putt up to make sure no spit out could roll ob. If he didn't get that bird the scorecard penalty would of given the title to McBeast and no playoff needed.
