So probably the question to ask right now is what about Dickerson? Last time I checked he’s had the DGPT championship on lock down recently?

Seems like it’d make a lot of sense for somebody to offer him a big enough deal to allow for him to tour full time? No clue if that’s his call to stay more local, or if his current deal just doesn’t have the room to allow for it?

Regardless, it’d make things a lot more interesting to see him with a top 5 type sponsorship deal.

Depends on what you want to consider “tour full time”. 23 events this year, but obviously a lot of dropped events compared to the past few years of 40-48 events a year.

Point is, looks like he hits the DGPT stuff, but other than that it’s a ton of local B and C tiers.

He plays a lot of events yeah, but not competing against top tier talent every time he’s out there. It’d be interesting to see him pare down his schedule and hit fewer, but larger events. He can definitely hold his own against the top 10 field.

I don't think he plays most, or any, west coast events. Or didn't if I recall correctly, before this year.

From following his IG, I know that he went home for a day or 2 between Maple Hill and Madisonville, but that might be the only time that he has been home in 3 months.

I notice Simon mentioned Ezra Aderhold is being courted by a few companies. Who do you think will put up the right numbers?

I think he likes to throw some Discraft discs and would bet they're financially very strong right now so they might make him the best offer.

I saw him mention that also, and that Discmania was one of the companies trying to sign him. I think Discraft has a good chance, based on the molds he throws. But Ezra I believe is vegan and he crushes like Eagle, so maybe they’ll bond over beans and Discmania will have an inside edge haha.
