Already stated, but I'll chime in.

Bagging is "knowing" you'll win instead of *trying* to win.

Baggers are conscienceless sociopaths with no remorse who need to constantly feed their fragile overblown egos with unearned wins.

Bagger: Anyone who finishes better than you in your division at a tournament.

da Crippler's comment aside, in my experience it's rarely vitriol, but instead mock anger. Friends are most vocal; it's a teasing way to knock someone off his pedestal and diminish his win. I've heard it yelled when someone got his first win after many tries, and even when someone won the open division where it's impossible to sandbag.

Online, on the other hand, it's used to gripe about having lost.

yeah, in motorcycle mototrials we ruthlessly call someone a sandbagger and yell "move him up!" whenever they win a division. we do it with 5 year old kids too, so it's pretty silly....

Understatement of the thread right here.

I get people asking me all the time which division they ought to play in. My response is always: "Whatever you qualify for." I've had so many conversations about people complaining that so and so is bagging to which I ask, "Did they play in the division they qualified for?" Obviously the answer is yes and then I tell them, "Your beef is not with the player - take it up with the PDGA rating system."

There is no such thing as a bagger. It's impossible to play in a division you are not permitted to play in.

It's just an opinionated term that two types of people use:
1. A person who is better than that player and wants them to move up to their division to beat them.
2. A person who is worse than that player and wants them to move up our of their division so they can finish higher.

Bagging (or sandbagging) is also used in bowling. Some (many?) leagues use a handicap system, so players have an incentive to win with the worst score possible to keep their average down and their handicap up.
