Yeah...they clearly know they can't produce to that level now so we'll see if that affects anything. I just still want to watch the final round Paul/Ricky battle so if they get around to uploading it I'll still watch it. It's just not going to be the same as if I could have seen it without knowing the winner.

Keep in mind these two have played since the early 90's and the sun has set on both their disc golf careers. It's time to let them rest.
1. the Jenkins I was referring to was Val, not Avery

2. Nate and Val both walked away while still in the top echelon of players in their respective fields and almost certainly would be right there if they still were active on tour. Nate was still 1038 rated when he stopped playing, and Val was 961.

So you're telling me, that while watching the NFL as an example, that Tony Romo should shut his trap because he's retired and not do commentary? Your take on that is too spicy for me.

Tony Romo should shut his trap because he sounds like Kathleen Turner after a four day bender...

Yeah, but does he look like Kathleen Turner after a four-day bender? I have no stake in this, my favorite commentators are Ian and Cory, neither who has been a top rated player. For me, it turns out that being a top-rated player doesn't necessarily correlate to good commentary. Again, for my likes.

Yup,

What did he win? Exactly how many times did he go play golf rather than to any play off? Really you went Tony Romo on me? Really, Tony Romo? Of all the great quarterbacks who do color, that's your example....

I get your point, you chose a bad example. Use Troy Aikman and I might concede the point. He's a much better broadcaster and color man. And he actually won something.

Please realize I am trolling this week.....I really should stop myself sometimes but I can't, or I won't. I just needed to stir things up with the "has been" quote. I thought it would spice up the old Forum.

Thinking of changing my handle to "Spicy Thunder".

Still no post-produced rounds from Waco by DGPT. They blew another deadline yesterday, per Smashboxx's podcast on Tuesday (they said they were informed the rounds would be released all together yesterday, Wednesday).

DGPT just posted post produced rounds on their channel. Looks like first two rounds (both MPO and FPO) as of this post.

Huh. So at this rate we'll have the 3rd rounds on the 26th.
