This.^ Every time I've read something Barsby wrote or listened to one of his interviews he has always came off as being stoned or a rambling idiot. Case in point, his second DGTR interview (or this Facebook post). He seems like a nice guy and maybe he just has trouble making his point, but I've still yet to hear him coherently state any point.

if you really believe this then you are just clueless

BOD is currently 2 pros 5 amateurs, including at least one who wouldn't recognize a touring pro if he met one (I can personally confirm this lol). the PDGA president is a sub-800 rated player!!!


the PDGA should really be the ADGA and focus on amateur disc golf instead of trying to have their hand in every part of disc golf like they do now, which has led to consistent mediocre results

Fact is, the Pros are a very small proportion of the DG world.
The PDGA is largely unconcerned with growing the sport on a recreational level. Just look at their expenditures to see where their focus is at.
This is a larger part of the quote that clarifies my thought process.
The focus of the PDGA is not determined by who is on the board, but by how they vote to spend money.
I don't care if the board was populated by four Grandmothers from Kansas City. If they spend money on tournaments and tournament coverage, then they are telling you what is important to them: Pros and the Pro tournaments.
When they start spending the same kind of money on grass roots development (schools, kids and youth leagues, among other things), then I'll drink the kool-aid and say they are run for the good of the everyday common player.

the people that cheat or are babies about playing disc golf are the same people that won't give a **** that someone is calling them out, even if Barsby has used names.

there are a lot of jerks out there, and they all act the same no matter the walk of life.

We may be getting chapter 2 very soon. Barsby posted that he just lost 4 paragraphs on facebook.
