I was restraining myself from describing this as Salient-level tone-deafness. Of course, it's not really at that level---such entertainment comes along but once in a lifetime---but a little reminiscent of the style.

This isn't exactly true, or at least the way you're phrasing it makes the intent seem devious. When DiscGolfPark labeling is put on something, it means either there's an IP component (i.e. we did the design) or the course owners/club asked for the labeling in order to identify their course as a DGP.

Example: I sold the TeePads to Gleneagles, and it's not a DiscGolfPark. Its name has regular 'ol DGC lettering in it.

If something different was being done down in Oz, then that's really disheartening to hear. DGP association is meant to be positive and collaborative, not invasive.

Didn't mean for it to come across that way. If DGP (or anyone else in the business) puts in a course, I support their having their name associated with it---in the course name, on the signs, or somewhere.

I believe I saw that these folks are now, or formerly, DGP associates, and I grant them the same. But it would be hypocritical to put the labeling on DGP components, while chastising someone else for wanting to do the same (watermarks or credits for the photographer).

Only aiming my guns at them, not the rest of the DGP world. Sorry if it didn't come across that way.

No harm, no foul. Just trying to err on the side of clarity. I mainly just quoted yours so that the whole conversation was inline, I thought the "watermark" quip was clever!

Wow - that 'article' was a nasty pile of self-justifying bull****.

"For the betterment of disc golf, you need to be a good little media person and not ask for credit when we use your work for free."

I believe the correct response is - **** you, pay me.

Is RAD still affiliated with DGP? About a year and a half ago a local park bought 18 tees for a course at my recommendation from DGP and there's another course in need of tees and if DGP is being silly like this I may change my recommendation.

Gotta say though...those turf tees are freaking awesome.

Nate described them as formerly Discgolfpark Australia.

But even if they are affiliated, I wouldn't put too much weight into what one affiliate on the other side of the world is saying.
