Damn. I might have to wear a hat made out of bread then.

It was from a current Prodigy Team member... one mentioned before as someone who could move. (DP) That was possible but he resigned as well.

Have we reached the point in Disc Golf of contracts having buy-outs? Simon and Eagle both signed a 2-year deal with DM last year, wondering if someone like DD or Disccraft could buy them out - guessing we are not there yet...

Leads me to wonder when and who will be the first Disc Golfer to put a buy-out clause in a contract if another company is willing to pay and offer more cash. Would hate for an up and coming pro to sign a multi-year deal with low incentives, have a break out year and then be stuck in that low contract. Thankfully it appears most companies offer season by season contracts, but I do see multi-year as the "future".

I'd guess that most of the contracts we see (or hear about) that are multi-year involve elite players.

If you're an "up and coming pro" with an entry level type deal, it isn't out of the question to get a mid season bump if performance dictates. I've even heard of some high level players getting "raises" during the season.

Didn't Austin Turner get bumped up mid-2017 season?

Yeah, after his 7th place finish at worlds. Got his Tour Series Force soon after.

Not sure if Cam Todd had a contract with Innova back in the day, but wasn't part of the deal with Discraft (besides money), was that they had to make him a Roc and Aviar type disc (Wasp and Challenger)?
