Put Kristen Tattar on ESPN, and disc golf popularity will go up. A lot.

Talked to her at USDGC this year, as she was following Silver Latt around (her boyfriend I think). I got her to sign my disc and she seemed really surprised that anyone recognized her when she was just there as a spectator. She was super nice and, as you alluded, very attractive.

I always wondered about other contact sports concussion numbers. If the modern day football players didn't wear pads, we would see many more concussions and possibly someone die on the field. They are just too big and fast for that. Without pads, the speed at which they run and collide would decline dramatically, just so they would survive to see their loved ones again. As long as they have the pads on, it's still safer than attending a soccer match abroad. People die watching live soccer you know.

No, the pads cause more TBIs. Not only do the pads add mass to the hit, they also allow for a greater number of hits.
In high school sports, soccer has the greatest amount of TBIs and it is not from person on person contact, it is from hundreds of headers from every practice (please don't put your children in this hooligan sport). A hard hit that knocks one out does less damage than high repetition jars to the head; Jars that may not even have any head contact.

Pads also allow the players to hit harder, both due to physics and to the angle of attack. One cannot lead with the head or the shoulders, in a tackle, without pads. They have shown this in the lab, in a tackle, players scoop like rugby instead of launching a collarbone first strike. Without pads, this would snap the collarbone.

Compare American football to Rugby. Rugby allows for more aggesive tackles yet has less TBIs.

Back in the 90s, we in the martial arts community knew that MMA was much safer than boxing. More broken bones, sure, but less TBIs. This was pre glove UFC, mind you.
