I didn't know there was this much money in disc golf. But if they want to give it to you you might as well take it.

Odd time for Brodie to join Foundation and making it Discraft exlucive. . .basicly everything is sold out
Hard to run a business when you don΄t have anything to sell

I wonder how long it will take for Discraft to catch up, SOO many moulds that are sold out everywhere

I didn't realize they were going Discraft only. Now that seems like an odd decision but what do I know. I'll stick with infinite and marshall street.

Paul's goal is to build his "brand" first.
That is why he went to Discraft.
He is using his brand to build business for his store.
And using the store to sell his brand.
In that regard, selling other company's merchandise is inconsistent with his goals.

That's pretty cool that he at least responded. One of the best things about our sport is how accessible our pros still are. This won't be the case pretty soon as our sport explodes in popularity. Go tweet at any NBA player and see if you get a response. You won't.

I was really into Brodie doing the disc golf thing, but man, this off-season has just left a sour taste in my mouth. Selling so many discs with his name on it and he hasn't done **** in an actual round of disc golf. I know I just sound salty that he's selling discs and shirts.....it just seems so.....****ing corny. But he is popular, so make that $$ i guess.

Its weird though. Paul seems to be using Brodie to build his brand and be the charismatic one and Brodie is using Paul to give himself legitimacy and using him like a coach. Interesting dynamic.

I think they both realized they can help each other. It's been an interesting few years. The "older" players like Paul, Simon, Ricky (27-30), Brodie (32) all imop have started thinking about life after touring disc golf, so they are attempting to build long term revenue opportunities. Foundation sounds like a stepping stone for both Paul and Brodie. Long term I think it would be a huge mistake for Paul not to build a brand off his own name, but then again...someone already did....

"this off-season has just left a sour taste in my mouth." I agree there seems to be a sense of urgency with Brodie regarding merch sales. But then again...he comes from a different mindset than 99% of the other players. Dude can retail.
