Based on the quality of the live & post produced coverage, my earlier guess that DGPT / Dodge is running out of money looks to be true. And jeesh....take a breath once in a while, you don't HAVE to talk that much.

I'm a sideliner on this---I'm not a Jomez fan or a Dodge-hater or a video consumer, in general---but I agree. But it makes me wonder, a bit.....

Why didn't they test run on a smaller event, a B-tier or two, and work the bugs out? Or did they?

Yes, I know there's a cost to that, in time and money. But the established video companies had a big head start. And those companies had the chance to start out on big events, because the bar was low at the time; they were surely going to be better than the 'little or nothing" that preceded them.

Sure seems like a full-scale scrimmage, before the opening day game, would have paid off.

This is exactly the point. If you have been buying shoes from a company for two years in a row and when you go to get the third pair they're terrible quality and fall apart the first time you wear them you would be pissed. The same is true here, when you promise to bring it in house and have the same quality but fall flat people notice. In the interview with Cory, Steve says that the camera operators only practice filming disc golf was at local courses with random casual players. Going from that base straight to the Memorial seems like a recipe for failure and expecting different seems a little arrogant.

It's why you run C- and B-tiers before the PDGA gives you the reins for something bigger.

I'd be terrified running a live show, anyway, sweating all the things that can go wrong. I'd be more terrified debuting it on a big stage.

Holy cow! The posters on Reddit are savages compared to DGCR.

But they are very funny savages.

This caption generator video might have more views and shares than yesterday's DGPT coverage.

Bit nit-picky, no? Seems the kind of error that is likely to happen once in a while when you're rushing to get the videos out in a hurry no matter who is producing the video. I mean, even Jomez makes those kinds of errors. In their video of the final FPO round at Las Vegas, their pre-round player intros had the graphics/photos for Paige Bjerkaas and Eveliina Salonen swapped.

Thanks. I have serious doubts about anyone who would go to such trouble. But I sure am glad that he did. That's hilarious. I'm not even a Dodge-hater, and that's hilarious.
