Yes, Im aware, but 4 hours of disc golf becomes less and less appealing the further you get from when it actually happened. After I started seeing things about the round it became less and less interesting. I expect to watch the cut for this one and then just watch final rounds the rest of the season.

Maybe.

But he's already put out 20 videos in the last two months for free on YouTube that pull well over 100,000 views each. Is that not enough free exposure to his fans and subscribers? Would releasing a free, 4 hour video of live tournament coverage do something that he hasn't already done? Maybe he'd help set a new record for largest live broadcast ever. I guess that'd be cool and all, and he would rightly feel pretty proud, but would 20,000 free viewers going to move the needle more than 5,000 paid viewers? Would Bud Light see 20,000 viewers and all of the sudden decide to start sponsoring the tour?

When I first saw that it would be PPV only I thought this was penny wise and pound foolish for some of the reasons stated above. Releasing a cut later seems like a fair attempt at a best of both worlds. Also, not announcing that plan at first will have tipped a few on the fence into subscribing. Some of those may now cancel subscriptions but others may remain. There may never have been a concrete plan on this but overall it checks out as good management to me.

No, because once the stream ended I had to wait until the next day before it was converted to video. If that turnaround time continues I might not stay subscribed either.

Looks like Brodie and some other pros pulled out of The Open(still a decent field though) this weekend and it looks like Jax Open is canceled...

They were slow for the first round. I was able to watch the second round later that night. Hopefully that trend continues.

I prefer skipping through the live stream vs. post-produced content. I prefer hearing authentic reactions from Jamie/Nate.

Default I don't understand...

...why these top dg pros are all bending over and offering up their brown eye pre-lubricated for this fairly bland, uninteresting brodie guy who has a mediocre youtube channel with an admittedly impressive couple mill following it... am I missing something? It's not even remotely interesting to watch him throw a disc, and it's amazing how much grovelling the mcbeths and pierces and memorials are offering this individual... no?
