I'm guessing the reasons are more financial for Paul backing out of Foundation. If what was said interfered with the negotiations, I would have been pissed. But it seems this wasn't the case.

Talking about Discraft and PMB. I didn’t listen long enough to catch Foundation TMZ, or maybe another interview.

I started rearranging a bunch of instruments last night, which so-happened to coincide with Rick/Ari joining in on Smashboxxx, so I tuned in. It was pretty boring for awhile with Ari doing most the talking, but then heated up. I'll layout a few other things that I gleamed from the broadcast.

-Rick will be getting signature molds. He mentioned they will be coming out with a Harp with a thumbtrack (wouldn't say it, but... Piggy clone). He'll be getting a putting putter too, but will be using Harps and Daggers for now.

-Rick is still incredibly PISSED at Uli for using the Raptor name. They talked at length about the importance of branding and then Rick went on a rant about still being angry with Uli about stealing the Raptor name. (Uli is said to be dating Ricky's sister too ***that nugget just for you RU4POR***)

-Ari does Rick's laundry, cleaning, cooking, thinking, branding, sales, bookkeeping and more. A bit of an awkward moment when asked about a contract between them, as they stated there wasn't but Ari thought there should. Sounds like Rick's girlfriend will be helping her out with things while on the road this season

That is one of the great troll moves in the history of all disc mold names. Glad to hear Ricky is appropriately sour.

That part about the Raptor deal is just laughable.

As if Ricky owned the rights to the name.

Sounds like he needs to pony up a better contract for the person who seems to do everything besides throw the disc for him.

Irony much?

I love this as well. Raptor fits the discraft brand very well as well as Rick's. Not his fault

Throw $10K at Uli for the name, he can afford it.
