I really loved Nate Doss's commentary. The nickname thing made me giggle every time. He started the broadcast with T-Mobile, snuck in a TMZ at one point and finally broke with Teapot I think. I cant remember which one. He just couldnt hold back the laughter. There was a teerex in there as well. I loved it.

Here’s a still shot of Paige Pierce:

Watch Nikko’s jump putt:

Is there any supporting point behind the lie when the disc is released? (Plenty of other players jump this way as well.)

Until all jump and step putts are disallowed, or a rule change adds language to clarify their legality in regards to the lie, I just can’t argue about them anymore. It’s a total gray area.
I agree, I've always said ok...you play your throw from your marker, but wait...you can step or jump, and actually release the disc 2-4ft PAST your mark? That is just....stupid for the sport.

Similar to shooting a 3 pointer and landing in front of or on the 3 point line. It's only to generate more power, no?

I loved everything about Nate's commentary EXCEPT the t-isms, "weather by Nate Doss", "beautiful hair", etc, etc. yah..I know alot of people like that style of commentary, kind of like the CCDG guys style, etc, etc, and I know I'm in the minority.. just waiting for the "Jim Nantz" of disc golf to show up. Otherwise...stellar live coverage. Technically no stutters, no lag, for me what so ever and I'm on 15mb connection out in the country. Congrats to Simon and Eagle, you know their sponsor is like... #boom

Was just making the comparison because you said stupid for the "sport" of disc golf. I love me some jump putts so I'm biased

My favorite was Sweet Tea . idk how he came up with so many on the spot, and used them so casually

James Conrad has the step putt down though, he's 100% clean.
