We (at least here on DGCR) aren't really bickering about where WE think she SHOULD go, more about where we THINK she WILL go. Until this morning, that is.

A white knight is going to white knight.

That's pretty presumptive.

How do you know that Paige didn't fire up some CAD software and specify the geometry to be sent to the mold cutters?

A design starts as a concept. If Paige is providing the concept, then she is part of the design process. If she's suggesting refinements, shes part of the design process. Paige and Paul are designing discs.

I'll give 10-1 odds she doesn't know what geometric tolerance is.

You are wrong.

Terry isn't a "white knight". He just really enjoys calling out any sort of irony or hypocrisy. He is basing it off of the fact that FPO is 7% of our PDGA membership. FPO usually gets 25% of views on YouTube. FPO gets about 1/5 (or less) the live spectators. Yet we have a lot of people, mostly men, discussing where Paige is going. What she should get. What is fair. It sure seems like a lot of interest now, and not nearly as much during the season.

And granted, we are the few, the passionate, the dedicated. Most of the people on this board probably take in more FPO coverage than most.

Inventing is not the same as designing, but good try.

Because it's mostly men who are interested in Disc Golf. What if the men didn't say anything about this move? Then men would be berated for ignoring it. There is no winning and the tweet or whatever it was is white knighting.
