Well HB, I appreciate your months of preparation for the largest AM event in the world, even if no one else seems to

I forgot the thing tournament players do best: complain

HB is a cancer to disc golf. His selfish attitude has drove away 3 local Disc Golf Hall of Fame members, and several other long time players. I've heard comments about HB from groups he used to be involved in BG outside of disc golf ......pompous, slimy, unethical, liar to name a few. Amy Caldwell at the tourism commission told me a few years ago, that Brian Graham specifically told her BG would NOT get Worlds if HB was involved. What a lame excuse after taking in over $40,000.....and I know for a fact he fudges his TD reports.

Ha, complainging?

It doesn't even effect me. I'm just stating my opinion as someone who has plenty of experience running events.

Honestly I don't care whose fault it is. This should have been in the update.

What is the PDGA going to do if this doesn't get updated to reflect in ratings and points and such? I traveled to BG simply for the points. I don't have the time to grind out the couple hundred that I should have earned (I suck big whoop wanna fight about it) to get to my 500 for my worlds invite.

Punishing the players for TD actions in inexcusable.

You don't have to be such a fanboy. I love playing BG Ams. It's my favorite tournament to play every year. That doesn't meant that the worst parts of the experience aren't directly related to the TD.

Everyone appreciates the efforts that WERE put in, it's the efforts that weren't put in that stand out.

650 players? No.

People I respect and trust have nothing positive to say about him. It's the only time I've heard a couple of these people speak poorly about anyone. So lets just say he's well known around here and not for the good reasons.
