To be fair, NO ONE should have expected as good or better than Smashboxx on the first day out of the gate. That's just ridiculously unrealistic. If we're going to judge them fairly against Smashboxx, you gotta give them a couple tournaments to get their feet wet.

I guarantee that a bunch of the flaws in the broadcast are not the result of incompetence but rather the result of inexperience. There are things that the Smashboxx crew learned to do through trial and error that we wouldn't even notice that they were doing. So when a new crew does it differently, to poor results, it stands out.

If DGPT is still making "rookie" mistakes at Idlewild and Ledgestone and DGLO and MVP...then maybe it's that they don't know what the hell they're doing. Short-term, dumping Smashboxx might be a mistake. Long-term, we might not notice much of a difference.

Maybe your expectations are the problem?

Does anyone else think Nate sounds just like John McEnroe?

FPO coverage is pretty good this morning, IMO.

I am angry about free live disc golf! I should be paid to watch this garbage!

Joking. I like the coverage so far. Definitely on pace with smashbox in my opinion. I enjoy Nate and Val much more then Terry and Dixon. Terry is good though. Having him possibly out in the field commentating sometimes would be great. Or maybe anyone in the field that could just relay a different perspective back to the both at times. Very nice so far. It's great to have this back especially when there's 3 feet of snow outside my house.

A little, I hear it. His emphasis and pauses are similar.

this is what i think as well, get someone on site that can give you a perspective that nate and Val don't have. what disc they threw on a certain hole type stuff. too much nate and val facetime in the broadcast as well IMO. they def need to work on filler.

PGA events don't follow one group so they dont' need to work on filler. they bounce back and forth between groups, multiple cameras setups allow this, the live feed needs to figure out what how to fill that void.
