I’m not a belonger. Not a loner either, but I don’t get a any sense of membership out of hobbies. Being sponsored by a company at a low/ambassador level wouldn’t do anything for me. And I’d be a...

Until the terms of player contracts are known, we’ll never know. Is being 17th on Discraft or Innova worse than being 4th on Westside? I’m not saying he was 4th; just eyeballing a comparison.

Innova has always had a stranglehold on the rec market as first to market. That DD had a trial run in some Dick’s stores is a start to eating into Innova’s dominance. I don’t know the status of that...

If the committee members’ identities are not publicly known that’s bad operations and a bad look. A secret cabal should not be making disciplinary decisions. The PDGA really makes me scratch my head...

Seeing as he seemed to be Paul’s shadow in tournaments later in the season, this “news” is the opposite of shocking.

I think most players have a mental trap of some sort that affects form and execution. It’s throwing with an uphill approach for me. Instead of standing still and discing down, I try running faster,...

I’ve lost every purple disc I’ve owned other than the midnight blue/dark purple Gstar Leopard I was stupid enough to fall in love with. I kind of want to lose it just to get the inevitable over with.
