Don't get your hopes up. The show is about college football.

IIRC correctly they have done this before on one of the ESPN college shows, likely Gameday, where they used disc golf as some go-to-commercial filler content. I don't think we should expect much else, nor be upset that there isn't more. It's baby steps, and they're all in the right direction.

Like Mocheez said, these shows are about football. Disc golf is a bonus.

That's exactly what it was on today's show.

Something is very fishy here... that's a Dave Feldberg quote in the video... not Canali. I use that video all the time to enlighten people about our sport.

I see the deal now...the author of the article thinks Joe is Dave. Simple mistake.

less than 15 seconds of footage, not quite what I'd call coverage...maybe more on Saturday?

First, I fixed my grammatical error in this previous post!

Not sure if there will be any more footage, but as onemilemore indicated it may very well be just more short lead-in-to-commercial coverage.

Either way I was more intrigued by Joe Canali's media accomplishments and the fact he's an avid disc golfer.

they just opened a awesome new DG course in Bristol, Connecticut (headed by Mo Bahrani ESPN employed DG ADDICT). So you know there'll be numerous new DG players just because of proximity of the mothership to an awesome course.

hopefully they might do some legit filming there soon (if not a tourney maybe a funny THIS IS ESPN commercial/segment featuring DG).

I remember numerous times playing when I lived in Connecticut (tourneys/league/casual) rounds where I'd chat with my cardmates and they'd be a random ESPN dude.
