Having the feed cut off heading into a playoff would have sucked.

He made it sound like that meant eo coverage too. I'm really disappointed because his coverage of the 2011 EO final round had the best production quality of any I've ever seen.

I mean, I would pay for a tournament DVD produced by lcgm8. As long as it had atleast 2 full rounds of MPO, including the final. Definitely worth it

there is a reason 270,000 viewers watched it live, I can't wait to hear how many more people and countries tuned into the live or archived stream.
I need to move to Finland then, get away from hippies chucking Grooves.

I would assume that he was in some way funded/payed/suppported/accommodated/hired by SpinTV/Discmania to shoot the tournament. Otherwise I cannot see how they can limit the release of it.

Afaik, it was the same deal for Copenhagen Open where we have only seen a tiny bit of what was actually shot.

It's something like that, although it was forced on him. I'd go more into detail but not sure how much he wants to share.

Your answer has been told in many threads here, and mentioned by David Feldberg, among others. Basically disc golf has no baggage in Scandinavia. Here, the game's roots are often our own undoing.
