Yeah I was referencing DGPT, DGWT, and ADGT. Nobody can figure out how to market properly (to Americans).

Its not totally their fault... well maybe one of them was, lol. The market just isn't big enough yet for traditional marketing to really have an effect. They have a small subset of people that are probably gonna watch, whatever their plan is, and a very large group of people that don't even know we exist. The question is, when will it hit a critical mass...

This.?? I'm not sure what exactly the DGPT was shooting for here but it seems they missed the mark(any mark, every mark).

Sure it does. Between reachback and release.

But semantically, you're correct, no disc thrown by a professional accelerates

I have had some putts accelerate... Throw a 10ft putt into a head wind nose up and watch it accelerate as it passes by you on the way to a 30fter, lol...

Wait, the disc would be constantly accelerating in flight given that acceleration (in physics, not common vernacular) = ∆v/t, no?

The disc is losing speed from the moment it leaves the hand, and its final position >0m away from its starting position, so therefore the disc is negatively accelerating?

It's been awhile since I've had a Physics class though.

I tend to communicate in commmon vernacular unless specifically addressing an audience educated in a specialized subject... though common sense seems in fact to be a specialized subject considering the number of people who belive that a thrown object increases in speed for a time after release...

Who said a thrown object increases in speed after release?

If you're implying that I did, that's not what I said. I said it accelerates. Acceleration is ∆v/t, where v is velocity and t is time. Acceleration can be negative.
