Obviously, I don't know Cat's intentions.

But I imagine it is something closer to what Elaine King does now. Play more events closer to home, and be selective about the larger events you're willing to travel to that require a bigger invest of time to prepare for.

Or, to put it in tennis terms - at Roger Federer's and Serena Williams' point in their respective careers, they don't have to play everything, nor do they even try. They play the events they choose to, and their arrangements with their sponsors would take this into account.

Cat is a big name in the sport; she can negotiate a deal that is beneficial to her needs.

The sport is probably closer than it has ever been to manufacturers being able to have a slice of the market apart from pro sponsorship. I would be interested in knowing what DD’s disc sales have been this year. On the flip side to my argument, DC has pushed a ton of plastic thanks to Paul.

Exactly what I was thinking. Guess he's going to have to learn Champion or Star Stingrays to try to replace the Comets.

I have only ever thrown one Comet a grand total of two throws. My Champ Stingray (Not Super Stingray) seemed to fly very similarly in that tiny sample size.

I don't know, and I doubt the manufacturers know the exact impact of pro sponsorship on their sales, but I would expect there to be a catalyst for a significant change. I'm not saying the booming sales numbers will necessarily push manufacturers to sign more pros but I doubt even more that it will push them to reduce their team size.
