That sort of surprises me, as it's us old farts who started the whole thing and developed netiquette in the first place. I remember that September where the hordes from AOL were unleashed and the 'net quit being a polite place (and September hasn't ended).

Not to be outdone, I have a friend who is always funny, who was there in his 60's. I told him what we'd decided so far, and asked what nickname he would choose for his group. Without batting an eye, he said, "...depends".

My gf will occasionally accompany me to a tournament round as I play in Am 40+. When there are non-age protected divisions on the same course as us, she notices how the younger players constantly gripe about everything. I launch and thank god im in the 40+ environment.

That’s true in my baseball leagues too. The older you get with the minimum age in a division, the less issues there are. It’s like the 20-25 year olds still think there are scouts waiting to sign them to MLB contracts if the damn ump would just call strikes on pitches a ball off the black

Observations about life:

In order to 'create' their own lives, the youth MUST denigrate the aged (at least privately). Thank goodness that in public, some choose to display good taste and form.

Every inventor knows beforehand, his masterpiece will be twisted into a tool for conquering the world and crushing souls by a mad scientist (probably a nazi).

So... the poll only allowed me to select one option and only allowed me to vote once. If I had been able to I would have selected numbers 2, 4, 5, 9 & 10.

#10 being - Stupid DG polls that don't let you make more than one selection even though they ask for multiple responses.

It doesn't surprise me at all. Boomers are just a little too sensitive, and we think we have all the answers. If only they ran the country my way! Our generation went from, "ask not what your country can do for you," to "what are you gonna do for me?"

I've seen plenty of old folk impatience and denigration of youth. Most of the young folks I know don't have the time to spend going after the old.

Indeed, it was a huge youth movement that supported Bernie, and the old went with the fear mongering Trump.

I played exactly one tournament with Pro Masters players. Never again. I do think the over 40 ams are better, than the younger ams, but if your gonna measure the young by their testosterone levels you'll never be disappointed.

I don't ever think I've ever bickered about anything like this on a disc golf course. Some people suck....any age... go throw plastic and be grateful you get to play.
