Well it sounds like he was still wearing DD clothing after Innova picked him up, but I haven't seen him in Innova clothing since Discraft picked him up. So I think by process of elimination we can...

It is not setting up the course to work against the long throwers that is the goal. It is setting up the course to enable the field to play the game of golf fairly. The long throwers will have an...

Fairly fresh Am here. Younger than most of you guys, but older than most of the "new players."

My first PDGA event was an MPO-only tournament big enough to have USDGC spots at large. I paid...

When I began in the mid-90s, $6. (That's about $10 in today's money)

DX was the only plastic we knew. It wasn't called DX; it was just what we had. There was some merit in winning discs to...

I played in a tourney at Ponchartrain Beach in NO in '79 that had distance, accuracy, freestyle, MTA and TRC, but no golf. There were no divisions other than age, and the only "pros" were the ones...

Fascinating read.

I always assumed it was manufacturer driven. What better way to shift some discs than get someone else to run tournaments and shift them for you? Am players are far more...

How the payout structure started is a great question, and I'm sorry I don't remember. I certainly don't remember the creation of a second division being a big deal.

Here's what I do remember:...

I was hoping by now that someone would chime in and know the answer. Especially when I saw Houck posting.

I, too, am curious as to how we got on this track. And I don't know; the train was...

World's Biggest gets forgotten, but that was a pretty pure promotional event. There wasn't a "tournament," you just got a disc, a mini and a shirt and played. When there was an award, it went to...

I don't know that I really had much influence in this area. Philosophically, I have a pretty long and clear record on a tricky and sometimes divisive issue.

First, there were no amateurs when I...

I think this is the issue and as always we seem to run off on tangents. If I understand biscoe, it's the idea that Am's look at their entry fee and the payout, and if 100% of their entry fees are...

That's cool, thanks for the link.

Not to argue the point, but Ed faced several players revolts over the years that he ran the PDGA. Like the video pointed out, he was a "my way of the highway"...

From what I understand, that transition was very testy and getting him to give up any control during that time was essentially impossible. Also gossip.

What isn't gossip is that the PDGA during...

There is a documentary that is out there (currently being released in chapters) about the history of NC disc golf.

The transition of the PDGA from Ed to the players is discussed.

From what I could gather, Ed had decided to shut down the PDGA (not a shocker at the time as the IFA also had shut down and the money to run both had been coming from the same place) but he was...

Post #6 pretty well sums up my thoughts. Why is there a universal expectation (codified by the PDGA) that we need to bribe players to play? How did it get that way to begin with?

With no actual...

Unfortunately I do not- they pre-existed my involvement. I think the first Am Worlds was 89 but that is the extent of it.

I don't ever think I've ever bickered about anything like this on a disc golf course. Some people suck....any age... go throw plastic and be grateful you get to play.

I "niced" that for the "stone someone with red thumbs" phrase. The rest was a bonus.
