That post by JT was 17wks ago... but he sure didn't have much trouble praising him today, lol. Just goes to show why every time you have a thought, you might want to think about it before posting it on twitter...

I didn't expect much from Brodie, but have even less respect for JT.

976 rated round. Like that Monkees song..... (feel free to comment if you're old enough to know wtf I'm talking about.) lol...

Jolt 03-13-2020 04:23 AM

Most of his game looked solid. . but he needs to put those short approches closer to the basket, he was way short a few times and that cost him 3-4 strokes

But he played GOOD, far better than me and i have been playing for 20y :)

Impressed with his putting, lots of nerves on a round like that. . .just saw that video where Uli played "2020 Winter at the Bud" and he played with players in the 950-990 rated range, , and their putting "on camera" was NOT good att all

You would think as a commentator for DGN he would maintain a little diplomacy at least...

Makes those of us that are on the fence about buying into the network coverage say”no thanks”!

Him as a commentator for DGN wasn't a thing when that comment was posted, nor was Brodie's PDGA membership. It was posted last November. It wasn't a smart comment but Jamie may have turned around on his stand.

yeah, but he sure reiterated a lot of that in the Upshot podcast this week. It was so bad I couldn't listen to it.

Of course he was kissing his ass on broadcast yesterday, he didn't want to eat crow on live stream.

After checking out the podcast I have to say it was directed at DGPT much more than at Brodie. He saw Brodie's inclusion on the feature card as a publicity stunt because he hadn't yet proved himself as capable of being a pro disc golfer, which is a completely legitimate argument.

Jimb 03-13-2020 08:23 AM

Did anyone watch the pre-tourney interview with Jeff Spring and Brodie? I can't get the link, sorry. But I thought that it was quite good and nicely professional.

It was completely an agenda to trash DGPT for this specific choice. You bet it was a publicity stunt, and DGPT should be applauded for making a smart move here. If someone drops a golden ticket in your lap, do you not use it because you didn't earn it?

First and foremost - DGPT is in the business of marketing their product. Putting Brodie on this lead card (as a 'local' Texan) absolutely made the most sense. Jamie is trashing them because they picked Brodie specifically, not a single thing would be said if it was someone else (which it has been in recent years)

Side note - putting your empolyer on blast on a national platform like that, when you're supposed to be helping market their event (ie he's part of the product and should want people to listen to him) is really just dumb

So JT has appointed himself as the gatekeeper of disc golf?

I don't think any more so than anyone else who has a Twitter account or who posts on these boards. He posted a personal opinion, which, (surprise!) is pretty much what all of us are doing every time we post anything. Sometimes our opinions are completely innocuous, sometimes our opinions are inflammatory, sometimes our opinions get proven correct over time, sometimes our opinions get proven wrong over time.
If I was more active in broadcasting my opinions, I might have said something similar three months ago, and I'd probably be eating crow at this point. I guess I'm just lucky that I didn't actually say it out loud.

knivvves 03-13-2020 10:04 AM

...sometimes our opinions are antithetical to growing the sport, sometimes we double down on our opinions 2 days ago on our podcast....

It'd be one thing if Brodie was a complete scrub, but he's not. And he's bringing in new players. As a new player myself, his videos with Paul are excellent learning material. He's really good at drawing out little tips and tricks from McBeth that you don't get anywhere else.

The alternative is everyone afraid to say anything, and that's backwards and definitely not the route we want this internet experiment to go down.

JT means well, his heart is in the right place, you gotta give him rope to make a few slip ups.

Silboh 03-13-2020 10:27 AM

I have been very impressed by Brodie.

He must have felt so much pressure but he handled it very well. I can't imagine putting that well in front of the cameras for my first tournament when many people want me to fail.

Good job Brodie, it was legit to think he would play bad but instead it was very promising.

Disc golf is currently having a debate about a commentator that stated a player who was on a live broadcast is not serious about disc golf and only it in to gain additional fame and money.

If that doesn't prove growth, I don't know what does.

If this was being talked about outside of disc golf you would have a point, but it isn't and you don't. :)

Fair.

But imagine saying the statement I did 10 years ago. You would have been locked up and tested for mental issues.

I can't believe it.
I had a different opinion than someone else in this thread and wasn't called names.

I mean we can call you some if it will make you feel more at home... :|

:p

I'm not sure why Smith dug up that screenshot of a four-month old facebook post and fired up this debate anyway. His round received generally positive feedback from what I saw, we could have just rolled with that.

brutalbrutus 03-13-2020 11:38 AM

+1 thru 2 to start today's round...

brutalbrutus 03-13-2020 12:05 PM

Took a dubogey on 4 then birdied 5.

brutalbrutus 03-13-2020 12:13 PM

Another birdie on 6 back to +1 for the round

Please don't clog up the thread with hole by hole results.

brutalbrutus 03-13-2020 12:24 PM

Lol... why do you care what I do? I mean damn, you might as well get used to clogged threads since there is going to be a lot of people working from home or unemployed over the next couple months...

Oh and 3 birdies in a row...:p

Ignore him or stay out of the thread if it bothers you that much.

McBeth caught up with his group to coach after he doubled hole 4. ;)

I'm enjoying looking at Brodie's whole card on UDisc Live, it's enlightening me to the level of play that pros in the middle of the pack exhibit. I don't get exposed to this normally because I usually only watch lead card coverage of late rounds. His drives and C1 putting seem as good if not better than his cardmates but he's converted 0/4 C2 putts and failed to scramble effectively (what does that actually mean anyway?!) and that seems to be why he's not stretching ahead of his cardmates.

brutalbrutus, it's almost like I'm there!

When you miss the fairway off the tee and still make par or better.

brutalbrutus 03-13-2020 12:46 PM

on the par train currently.

zjones9 03-13-2020 12:56 PM

Impressive birdie on 10

Well, I guess in regular golf, it actually means missing the green in regulation but still make par or better. Not sure if that is the same definition in udisc stats but I would imagine so.

So on a par4 that would mean not getting inside circle 1 in two throws and on par 3's it would be not inside circle 1 off the tee.

Their card is quite quick, seems to keep bumping up against the cards in front.

I think hole 12 is just a normal backup hole.

Jugular 03-13-2020 01:13 PM

Terry Rothlisberger is having an amazing round so far!
