Plenty of passion, which is admirable...but sort of all over the place.

If this is something important to him, he should present it better, especially if he's doing it as a public statement.

I've got no problem with public media for this, but why post publicly what's only aimed at a few. PM those people and flame the s out of them, or keep it general for the masses...just maybe not THIS general.

This is DGCR, we really need to know who's discs to boycott!
thats a stretch.

if you know what i mean. wakka wakka.

I don't really know what behavior the original facebook "callout" was aimed at, but in terms of the pro tour generating income for the pros, it's probably a drop in the bucket compared to the fact that disc golfers are generally unwilling to pay to watch other disc golfers play.

"...there will be no spectators until the "pros" start to produce a product that the rest of us are willing to pay for..."

OR, at least, that enough people will want to watch for free, that it's worth sponsors' money to put the sponsors' names in front of those spectators.

Whats the deal with over using the unplayable lie rule if your disc rolls into a deep canyon that you can still get too. These are subjective and ultimately gets to be a group decision. But these things are what I see every tournament and it seems every person has a different take on it. Which then confuses everyone even more.
lol.

Herein lies the truth....
