People are buying them. Why wouldn't a business create new products if they are sure people will buy them?

Watched the Jomez video. Was kinda funny the way it was told... Like growing up as a DG prodigy (yes pun very much intended), then signing with Discraft... Then nothing

I get it. It was produced by Discraft and all. Just funny. Someone who doesnt know the history will think shes been with Discraft ever since. Could have mentioned the years in between very briefly and in a super vague way at least. "Coming home" is a great storyline too, you know?

Anywhoo. Nice video if a little bit sappy. Dad tears are nice touch but it kinda drives me up the wall when parents get their kids to realize their own dreams (he even said so) Thats a cynical way of looking at it I know. And sometimes hard to avoid, like if the house is full of DG stuff and Dad plays all the time, its only natural for the daughter to pick up on it. (Except maybe as a rebellious teenager, doing everything BUT parents favorite things) I will have to see how it goes with my daughter. Encourage her with whatever it is she ends up being into. Not pushing her towards anything. Hopefully.

i agree. .

And everytime i hear a Dad say "if you don΄t win you are a looser" it just feels wrong

Yeah that attitude has almost certainly worked well for Paige on her way up, but might accelerate any decline on the way down.

Personally, I didn't enjoy the video.
Not sure what they were trying for, but it left me feeling a bit uncomfortable...

I wish PP great success with Discraft.
Also hoping I can forget this smarmy attempt at cheerleading.

Just one person's opinion.
Not saying no one else could or should enjoy it, but I certainly did not

Me too. I've met her father. Super nice guy. But living the dream through your kids, meh.... I have 3 kids and their successes are not my successes.

All I want to see changed in Paige's 2020 game is less obs. Then again..if Cat makes a few putts from inside 20ft... it could be an epic year for FPO disc golf.
