I heard on the radio that the antonio brown blowup NFT auctioned for $20k (6 etherium). Apparently it was a video shot by a fan. Not sure why it needed to be an "NFT" since it actually exists.

I believe "minting" it as an NFT tokenizes a receipt of ownership in the blockchain. It possesses zero utility.

The USDGC finish was after he had been on a tear for two months and people started talking him up as a contender, so pretty disappointing. He goes top 5 at USDGC and maybe I'd buy "marquee MPO name" right now; I'd have to go with "potentially a marquee MPO name if..." for now.
Marwede says he plays better in the woods than on open fields because he doesnt have top tier power.

I agree with your observation, especially about people who have been playing for a while.

I also think (and this is a generalization) that those who got into the sport after it had a big presence on the internet are more likely to be the outgoing type than those who found the sport when there were no easily-accessible videos of it to watch.

You are trying to sell a physical product.....it's a no-brainer and should be written into contracts.

I would def make the pro film a quarterly ITB. Not one at the beginning of the year, that gets released in october.
Hypothetically speaking, I would reject your sponsorship offer and get a better deal somewhere else.

Update on Nikko Locastro in terms of sponsorship: He finally updated his Instagram profile and took Westside off of it.
