Biting my tongue to not mention that this is karma for Jussi's total lack of integrity via-a-vis the DGWT....

Nailed it. I would go beyond management and say DGPT has the better business model for long-term sustainability.

DGPT is tapping into an audience and a market that is already there and established. DGWT is trying to hit the magic bullet and land some huge billion dollar sponsor or whatever.

And neither approach is "wrong". If Jussi was trying to do that, it is MUCH tougher than what the DGPT is doing.

Exactly, which is why DGPT has the better business model. It's not about wrong or right; it's about successfully achieving your objective regardless of difficulty. DGPT has, DGWT has (did) not.

Well, the methodology for the approach sure can be wrong.

Wonder what will change for the 2019 DGWT. Maybe the DGPT will be seeking an international leg. Or maybe the DGPT will have established live coverage and a market by then that DGWT can latch on to.

I had forgotten about the “the black spots” comment. Yeah, good riddance at least for a year

My boycott of disc mania has succeeded and caused the failure of the dgwt. It was me not buying disc mania plastic that caused this.
