its a funny term, like work-wife, probably. During clerkship/internship for me in medschool my real wife would refer to my female group mates, whom I spent up to 36hr shifts and month long rural rotations with, as my work wives.

I never said I wouldn't take an opportunity to take a sponsor, local/smaller than one of the big dogs, hence my stepping stone comment. You don't just jump in to the biggest sponsor. Comparing my time as a "professional" power lifter, which is likened to the world of "professional" disc golf where really the top 5 maybe, are actually making a living on their craft, you take what you can get. My post was more fairy tale land-ish, IF I was one of the top players and had disc companies seeking me out.

Considering Innova IS disc golf and Lat64 (et al) is probably the most dynamic company in the sport right now, I wouldn't call it chasing a wagon.

I think that if someone was really trying to make a living off of disc golf and sponsors, then their first concern would be what can the company offer monetarily.

Disc selection would most likely come second.

If it ain't got that Gyro, it ain't disc golf, bro.
