We think the company that hired Brodie Smith let go of one of their biggest names for making tiny tiny waves?

Not as clear as just calling them "separate companies", but thanks for replies. It's kinda the mishmash I figured it was.

It sounds like Dickerson’s contract is mostly performance and sales based. If he sells his discs, he makes more money. Probably a fantastic deal for Discraft especially since they win if sales are up, and they win by not paying Dickerson a bunch (but they won’t say how much us guaranteed). Bucking the recent trends of announcing contract amounts.

Someone should have stepped in and fixed that--come back player of the year or something logical. Give her appropriate recognition and $ assuming it's a cash award.

I mean, it is a DGPT specific award, not PDGA.

I'm trying to remember, were players from the USFL eligible to be Rookie of the year when they moved into the NFL?

In regards to this the only thing I remember was a spat on FB with some older guy that was a military veteran and it was about some "support the troops" thing. Both sides looked ugly and immature. I think the other guy got dropped from their street team because of it.

Not sure, but I know Dr. J did not win ROY the year after the ABA/NBA merger.

Thanks. I know I post that I don't really do ANY social media, outside of here, often. And receive some scorn and doubt, but I honestly don't. I appreciate somebody simply giving me some inside scoop.

Wait, she was only gay on school buses?? ,,,,,,,,

He does. It's called keeping up with the Dickersons. However, he doesn't post much on it.
