While I don't agree with the tone of this post, I do agree with its message.

I've had to speak up when people behind me have thrown on my group. I agree that often people just don't realize they're being a menace. Extending some courtesy and respect has worked well for me in the past.

ODW: One disc wonder. Any unscrupulous behavior on your part quickly places you in ODD territory though, so be careful. (ODD already defined in this thread).

Most people don't want to "man up" (way to use elitist, chauvinistic language) during their leisure time, can't fault them for that. Plus, it's kind of hard to confront a pack of shirtless drunk dudes if you're by your lonesome. Besides, it's disc golf, not rocket science. Chuckers should be able to figure out common courtesy and safety rationale if they put their sixer of Shock Top down and think about it for a second. I guess we should man up and tell people not to litter, throw feces into the streets or drive over the speed limit too but in the end stupid's gonna be stupid regardless.

I live in Frankfort and am a member of J-Town... It used to be that way but I've noticed the recent trend in complete morons at Highland (one of the toughest courses in our area). When I say morons I mean 1 disc yeah but... they always seem to want to throw on you. I've been nearly hit so many times it is ridiculous. Last week I was out there and we got thrown on. The guys disc actually hit my bag which was sitting on my stool right next to me. No warning... There just seems to be a lot more of these ignorant people at Highland than there used to be. Back to the subject I have never heard the term Gomer, my friends and I just call me scrubs...

Two problems with this post.

1. If your Chuckers are walking around with a sixer of Shock Top, then NC is one wealthy city. It's Natty or under around here.

2. The day you take away my right to throw feces anywhere is the day I get arrested for murder.

1. Yes, I'm from the city of North Carolina.

2. Shock Top isn't that expensive, but it is massively overpriced for the faux micro-brewed garbage that it is.

3. Natty Light is probably the national beer of the city of NC.

I find the "one disc wonder" tag somewhat contrary to the popular opinion around here that it is good to get to know the discs you have; what better way than a one disc round from time to time?

I don't understand what you're finding contrary.

For me, ODW derives from the rare sighting of that one dude that will show up to a local tourney with nothing but a beat to hell putter or midrange or something and a jug of water and just proceed to destroy nearly everyone. He is also usually shirtless and wearing jorts.

I fling poo. Do you really expect me to be able to differentiate between North Carolina being a town, city, or state*?

*Yes, I'm horribly ashamed to have missed that error
