Should've been!

Yeah, Reloaded and Revolutions were both full-on, theatre released movies. They actually grossed over $700million and $400millie, respectively.

Which is good for investors, because that combined 1.1 BILLION dollars probably just covers the cost of producing all that CGI in 2003 (when both of the sequels were released).

But enough with this thread drift!
Who's in a contract year? AB?

Discmania seems to have a penchant for long-armed, lanky kids who can throw a mile. :popcorn:

AB needs to worry about his putting routine not what/who's putter he is using...

Hmm, three out of four ain't bad. I should ring them up. (I'm no kid. :| )

My bet on Nikko is that he is working on a paid, mixed-bag deal. He could (theoretically) get "minor" mixed bag sponsorships from a handful of companies and make a pretty decent living.

I think the McBeth signing was a one-time splash in the pan deal. Future stars will have some sort of mixed bag deal with multiple sponsors. It may take 5-10 more years to get to that model, but I think that is the way our sport is headed.

I like Dickerson with Prodigy. He's become one of my favorites to watch. I could see Clemons switching since he doesn't fit the trilogy mold. But, I could also see trilogy throwing money at him to stay.

This is an interesting idea. It's common to see Conrad throw an MD4 or Barsby a scorpious or whatnot. Jerm throws mortars and I see he has an infinite disc too. I get they are all made by Innova anyway. I'm curious about the Discmania Evolution stuff though. That's made by Latitude right? That's almost mixed bag right there. I think Eagle was even throwing one of the Discmania/Yikun discs for a bit too. Interesting concept and I could see this possibly happening.

You seem to not get that dm doesn't give a **** about women. But otherwise, that mixed bag thing seems solid.

I see ab following Paul. The dd Van life crew hanging. Conrad won't switch.

Calvin with his nads for mad could take them both to dd as well.

Nads for mad hey? That one took me a second to decipher. :hfive:

I really hope the Nikko/DM deal happens. Huge fan of both.

I dont think it will be a mixed bag type of deal, at least not fully. Perhaps 1-2 must have discs if Nikko insists but otherwise I am sure it will be DM only (obviously Evolution and Active included, but that doesnt open the door for Lat64 or Yikun discs).

I dont know Nikkos bag (who does???) but I would have said Wizard is the one disc he would have a hard time replacing. But as of late he has been putting with Magics, and nowadays DM has the P3x and Link that are not that far removed from Wizards. Dunno, will have to wait and see.

Would be fun if Henna, Eveliina and Kristin gets a sponsor that can help them play on the tour next year

Discraft "needs" a top FPO player. . could they get any of these three players?

That kind of sounds like Henna. . and i think she would be a good fit for Discmania

Henna to Discmania and Kristin to Discraft feels like a good deal for both
