Serious question. When you watch other sports do you enjoy commentators attempting to be funny or is it just disc golf?

You could also learn to throw lefty forehand. Probably the better idea really.
I often throw a mid upside down forehand over my head unless I need to cover serious distance. Gets me out of jail for free lots of times.

Very odd to see the lefty Zach throw righty FH...I can only guess that he don’t like to throw anhyzer LHBH so he throws RHFH instead

Just dropping by to say that DGPT's wrangle on the media SUCKS. I don't have 4 hours to spend watching the whole round, hole walks and everything. And Idlewild is one of my favorite tournaments to watch, but I just can't do without the post production. Guess Imma go watch Silver Cup from last year....

As usual I'm slapped back into place after complaining - thanks GK for post producing. Now I have something to pass the time at lunch break.

Every commentating crew has their own feel. Both Dixon and McCall are very good at what they do. Dixon comes prepped with more stats and info than any other person in our sport, post or live. McCall is a natural behind the mic and possibly the best voice of our sport. They are friends, and sometimes get a bit silly. Frankly, I don't mind.

I can understand that people wouldn't like him calling out all the Superchat messages, but guess what... it drove MORE Superchat messages. In fact, it drove the most Superchat we have seen (without giving away stuff). And if we can make a few hundred bucks from that, I am willing to sacrifice what some see as the professionalism of the broadcast for the cold hard cash. That may make me sound cheap, but frankly it isn't like any of us are making fat bank doing this.

I hope everyone enjoys the final day of broadcasts. 9am & 3:30 EST.
