He's an annoying individual regardless of sponsorship.

AJ seems like a nice guy, but I agree he is frequently cringeworthy, and just seems like he’s trying too hard to be funny all the time. When he’s not trying to entertain he seems intelligent and genuine. He should focus on that more.

But I can’t imagine what he could have to say about his discs that takes a half hour. Most ITB’s float around 10-15 minutes, but AJ figured out a way to talk more than Feldberg. Once you’ve seen a handful of bags and how pros build them, I don’t really need it spelled out in that much detail.

I couldn't agree more with all of you guys that are negative. He seem like a person that tries to be funny and make jokes all the time. I really liked this part of him in the past until I realized he is trying to be funny all the time. After a while it kinda becomes annoying and actually frustrating. I watched 5 min until I realized it lasted for another 30 minutes.

So Ricky is awkward, James Conrad is boring, Paul McBeth has no personality. Who is the "proto" disc golf personality everyone likes? Is Nate Sexton the only disc golfer that gets a thumbs up?

Disc golf is love, disc golf is life, ya know...
100%

Also, He's got some off the beaten path discs not everyone throws. Yeah he's long winded and repetitive, but it's still interesting...

He throws a Bard - I like seeing pros compliment discs that I think highly of myself.

“So-so said this disc rocks so I put it in here.”

I like Risley. He’s literally always positive and has character. His form is rather curious, also. So, I watched it. It is long. I think he’s probably the only one carrying that bulky-af ranger H2O bag. DD could use a better backpack bag at some point.

I like the sub-10 minute ITB vids, in general, though. But, most of the vids coming out are players that bag 15+ molds. I wanna see some ITBs of the folks carrying 10 or less.

Simon is well loved. And on FPO, I don't think I've ever heard a negative comment about Paige Bjerkaas.
