200k subs, let alone 200k views on a video, is a pretty big deal. Getting 200k views routinely is unheard of in this sport. He's getting 100k plus routinely, and not even tournament videos (Jomez probably has the best watch numbers and are essentially only tournament coverage)

I get that it's cool to hate on him or gatekeep disc golf, so many people are doing it.

I just like seeing people excited about the sport, and want to see others do well. Apparently I'm in the minority though.

… the f9 vid Brodie posted yesterday already has over 100k views. DG viewers like tourney vids apparently

I suspect hunkering down and lack of other sports content is also helping.

F. Howl 03-17-2020 10:57 AM

Just watched yesterday's coverage of his round. Very impressed with his play. He lost the most strokes on his upshots, and that was very relatable. That's where I like to do all my f***ing up during a tournament.

brutalbrutus 03-17-2020 11:02 AM

I just started watching it myself. I kinda like his commentating with Paul so far.

His following comes from years and years of youtube content. Many different audiences and fans of many different things.

CLEARLY not all of those will translate to disc golf, but it's maybe the largest influx of viewers disc golf has seen from one person in such a short amount of time. Brushing it off because there are supposedly better potential audiences for disc golf out there is daft.

My negativity comes from my expectations of an elite athlete, ofc starting with glaring flaws in his form and still having those after months of training. That is a casual player to me.

Not to say that was the only motivation.


i thought it was obvious that i didn't mean the only reason he did the videos was because DC said so. i was just framing the situation for a hater, which should have been obvious from my post. those videos offer just as much exposure and opportunity for McBeth as they do for DC in general. tens of thousands of people new to the game seeing his name, his face, and his signature discs which are getting promoted in the videos.

obviously he wouldn't pass that up. but even if for some reason he really didn't like Brody and didn't want to do them, i think we'd still have those videos.

Dude is casually slaying life and seems to be having a great time doing so. Do you want me to just send you an email when hes 1000+ and spare you the anguish of his struggles?

dreadlock86 03-17-2020 07:43 PM

on a similar note, i've been thinking the last few days that this lockdown situation is a prime opportunity for pro players to create content, post tons of videos, and try to get some new social media followers.

if i were a touring pro i would be setting up doubles matches, 1 disc challenges, team challenges, etc with as many different players as possible. with all sports being cancelled, there are lots of eyes searching for something to stare at and the smart opportunist should be pumping out as much content as possible.

brutalbrutus 03-17-2020 07:43 PM

More of that educational stuff...


brutalbrutus 03-17-2020 11:50 PM

JVD said on the smashcast tonight that they got around 2000 subs after Brodie was announced. I'm sure some, if not even a lot of those weren't just for him. He said they were around 6500 total subs. That's a lot more than I was expecting for sure and the season was just getting started.

wolfmandragon 03-18-2020 12:02 AM

Young people are rearly getting sick. Maybe ban crowds, but there was no reason to stop the season.

Panic.

It does give Brodie time to hone his skills.

DiscFifty 03-18-2020 03:46 AM

Jamie says.... I'm sorry.... to Brodie. (Interview w/ Brodie.)

The ban was as much about the young, healthy players acting as carriers, as it is about protecting them from getting sick. Players would travel, stay in hotels, come in contact with tournament and video representatives. Those reps would interact with one another....

Anyone not understanding this premise needs to spend some time reading up on the entire pandemic. Sorry for being cryptic, but folks not taking a few minutes to understand the pandemic process, simply puts many folks at risk of death. Again, sorry for the melodrama, but this is the world we live in now. You can feel fine, spread the virus to hundreds... including many very high risk individuals, who don't have the immuno-ability to overcome the illness.

Just pretend you have the virus. Stay away from everyone. You don't have to panic, hoard, and stay inside. Just stay away from people. Assume that every person you come within six feet of, for the next 14 days, is catching the virus from you, and vice versa.

I work in the medical system. It is way too late in the game for a quarantine to work.

Don't panic. Fear is the mind killer.

Fear also lowers your immune system.

If you work in the medical field than you should know a quarantine isn't meant to stop the spread, it's meant to substantially slow down the spread while hopefully giving local resources enough time to more effectively battle the situation.

This is irresponsible and misinformative. The only time a quarantine is too late is if the entire population is infected. I have already been informed that I will be leaving my IT job and going back into nursing. The hospital system I work for, instituted a policy that does not allow for me to opt out (save for medical reasons). Healthcare systems are at their breaking point now. Every 10 people we can prevent from access and using healthcare resources will save lives.

I am far from advocating panic. You can label the current reality what you will, but it is the reality and it will have to be dealt with. I don't think you can leave the general population to their own decisions, rule placing is needed, IMO.

We both agree that action was taken late in the game. We both agree that earlier action would have been appropriate and would have changed the numbers and outcome. It does not really matter though. To spew a phrase I hate, the curve still must be flattened. Healthcare is the reason. Implode the healthcare system and people are going to really panic.

lmao because some normal dude can come out and average 975 right? Months of training? 73 days of playing golf when he shot the E in R2. Casual players would shoot low 800s on that course.

There are good players that have been playing for decades that have 'glaring flaws' in their technique. His technique off the tee is not great, yet still throws farther than 99.9% of people on this board.

Watch the shot before hitting the spoiler...
Clickbait title but he did put question marks in the parenthesis... That was a brutal spitout...

I watched about half of it, I've heard Jerm's spiel a few times in person and on video, good stuff... what I was really hoping for was him working with Brodie on his form, actively training Brodie. I think we'd get more out of that. Watching the output-feedback approach helps others identify weaknesses in their own games. There's value in what Jerm did in that video, but there're enough videos of Jerm talking forehand.

Spice it up Brodie.

glassila 03-18-2020 09:39 PM

The Darkhorse 3 pack challenge is good stuff. Paul Ulibari's comments are a riot.

brutalbrutus 03-18-2020 10:00 PM

Yea, when he called Brodie a rookie was pretty good.

I don't know if it's just the Brodie factor, or perhaps with higher paid contracts some players are now overall more relaxed.. but it's extremely refreshing to see the pros in a way we really haven't seen. McBeth is now McSocial... who knew? It's obvious Brodie's "on camera" persona is an "every day" dude and I think this is working for him. He's brash enough to get attention, but not cocky enough to cringe, plus he brings enough skill to the game to warrant respect. Finally, the way he allowed Tanner to use his own discs and push them a bit in the video... I guarantee that earned Brodie some respect from both pros and fans. Let's rewind all the way back to when Brodie first started taking disc golf a bit more serious....what...3 months? lol.. crazy... :eek:

His DG videos are almost like a behind the scenes look at the real Brodie when he's not in "Full on Trick Shot" mode.

I can't take "Full on Trick Shot" Brodie, but every-day Brodie isn't bad at all.

Agree this was a great video. And something about the camaraderie and ball-busting they did in that round almost made me feel like I was out at the course myself. I really appreciated it, given what's going on right now.

I love being around other competitive people. It always has a way of bringing out a special brand of trash talking, fun and pressure. Nice to see that personal fun side being shown, I think it makes it way more relatable and enjoyable.

Okay. Gotta admit.....I'm now fully a Brodie fan. That starter pack challenge was a super fun watch. And those darkhorse discs look sick, I won't buy any, but they look absolutely awesome. I might end up with one of those hoodies if I seen one though.....

I'm with you. He is energetic, well spoken, seems to be having a great time, and the content he is putting out is just fun to watch. I am especially impressed with his videos with other pros. He seems to bring out a light-hearted side of them that isn't often seen.

And, I think he is going to be very good in a relatively short amount of time...

Brodie's first "golf" tournament. Interesting if you skim through his golf channel the overall strategy is (was?) just about identical to what he is doing with his disc golf channel. Except with the disc golf world he's obviously a much bigger fish in a much smaller pond. lol..
