What a worthless garbage fire.
It was a joke and acknowledged as such. This has been addressed several pages back. No need to bring it back up.

If she goes to Discraft I hope they make the Stalker her signature disc and put Nate Perkins' face on the stamp.

I simply meant it as a play “grow the sport,” which is my least favorite phrase in the game.

Nice that Hailey King go on the Elite Team. . but i guess Van Dyken did not?

Feel like Van Dyken was brought in to be Discrafts top FPO player

Initially, I didn't like Paige bringing up the "loyalty" factor in her video because it seemed like there was a contract that didn't have an opt-out option for the player. If it was an informal statement of support, I find that rather odd that both DD and Paige would have that given she is the best overall FPO player.

Makes you wonder what a DD "signing" announcement really means ...

I mean, you have to fault both sides. That means that Paige just trusted whatever DD said they were going to provide her. It was a trust issue on both sides of the table. I think there was a lesson learned on both sides hopefully.

Spot on. Could have been that DD agreed to let her shop herself around knowing they couldn't give her what she ultimately was going to get. Also could be that they were simply too trusting of her and got it square in the back.
