Winter rules.

BTW, she's a looker. I wonder if 2nd place finishers get as much sweet sweet action as 1st place finishers.

That's pro level cheating, you don't cheat for the win because that would draw extra attention. Or maybe she isn't good enough to win even when cheating.

The story is that those who knew about the first time she got flat out busted for pencil-whipping thought she deserved a stearn punishment for such blatant cheating. When the PDGA issued only a written warning, which wasn't even made public, those in the know about her past offence and rumors of inconsistent scores in other tournaments as well, weren't happy about it. Steps were taken to make the Finnish Disc Golf Association (and in the case of the Eurotour, PDGA Europe) primary recipiants of disciplinary reports in the future. The European associations would now themselves recieve, investigate and and make recomendations for disciplinary sanctions, whereafter the final stamp of approval, whould then be given at the PDGA headquarters.

I think this procedure was in effect after Henna Määttäs most recent **** up. Hence probably why The Finnish Disc Golf Assiociation issued a public statement stating that H.M. is suspended from FDGA - sanctioned play for cheating atleast until the PDGA makes a ruling. http://frisbeegolfliitto.fi/category/uutiset/

One additional interesting aspect of this is that Henna Määttä took last years finnish nationals by a mere two strokes!

This is subject to disciplinary action by the PDGA. A 6-12 month suspension perhaps.

What a shame

its casual rounds. i dont even use a mini for them. i let my friends take their **** shot outta the woods if they want, but i take dg more seriously than them and i personally do not. if thats what it takes to keep them coming back and hanging out for a fun filled round and its fun for them then so be it

do it in a tourney though and you better get your ass called on it

When I was a very young age, my Dad shared his axiom about cheating: If you cheat to win, your win is empty and meaningless.

.........and even worse if you cheat and STILL lose!

That's pathetic. It's sad to see something as bush league as pencil whipping at that level.

This is a absolutely true. My usual crew all play fantasy sports. You name it, they do it. Weather they follow the sport or know the rules. They are stat driven. Still they can't seem to get their foot in the right place when it comes to their own game. These are the same folks that like to play the easy ass home course rather than a harder course because it would screw up their overall average. I just laugh and point out (or more often ignore) their mistakes. 'Yeah.... You won. Good job'.......
