The tanking bit was poking fun of the McBeth and Schusterick threads.

We surpassed the par talk thread.

BBQ and arguing about which plastic discs someone might throw is more important than the score they should aim to achieve.

Congratulations everyone.

Feldberg runs Next Gen as its own LLC. The LLC is what pays the monthly payments on those cars that they give away. He's gonna focus on that and continue what has been a fantastic am scam that has made him some good money and given him security in the game without having to compete at the highest level week after week. Its not a bad move for him to not be tied to one company for the swag that the ams get for these events. Dave is a smart dude and doesn't do anything without a lot of calculation beforehand.

Just a term I use to describe making money off of ams. I know many players who have enjoyed the events and the Next Gen concept, but it does turn a healthy profit so the organizers are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts simply to grow the sport. It is definitely a decent business plan.

I hadn’t realized that nextgen is its own thing, that’s interesting.

When a thing become profitable, then the thing has a better chance to grow.

Good for Dave, good for advertisers, good for the game. It's not a scam at all.

Agreed, it may not be the best of terms I used but one I use nonetheless

If it's not the best of terms, why continue to use it?

Scam implies that someone is getting ripped off or deceived and generally has a negative connotation. If what Next Gen is doing is 100% above board and a positive thing, why assign a negative term to it?
