I'm hoping for quadruple mandos to become the norm on every course, because triple mandos still allows people to throw low.

We got to think of ideas to make the game harder.

Why? The game is flourishing just the way it is.

A river looks better than OB rope. Same with a small but steep knoll, in place of a taller pole. They aren't gimmicks though. They affect gameplay in the exact same way...they're just not aesthetically pleasing as this:

Funny how you dont listen to what anyone says when they lay out ALL the reasons you are wrong. Then you make a horribly biased poll and all of a sudden everyone's opinion is gospel.
Besides, thats not the proper conclusion from your "poll" results.

I've got a question for you. A or B?
A. Oldmandiscer is an ignorant old fool.
B. Oldman discer has some intelligence, but lacks the ability to comprehend the English language.

You are a troll. You probably believe the earth is flat, we never made it to the moon, and the Holocaust never happened.

why do people on this forum think people who disagree with them are "trolls" ?? talk about being a bigot.

and then they're allowed to harass people they decide are "trolls" ?? and forum mods do nothing.

and beyond all that, nobody says "troll" anymore. stop saying it.

Isn't there a saying that you can make statistics say whatever you want them to? Statistics are a starting point for conversations...but they rarely prove anything.
