That thing has to be photoshopped right? Only Tacko Fall could get his disc from that thing.

What do you prefer, 1 or 2?



1, right?

Conclusion: Smaller baskets are the answer.

That type of attempted intimidation rarely worked on the playground. Certainly not going to enhance your status here.
Look at the responses on this thread. Obviously not many grown ups here. "Little Boy' would be much more appropriate though.

I play all kinds of different tournaments, unsanctioned, doubles, triples, lost and found rounds, OOP disc rounds, glow rounds, putter only rounds, one disc rounds.....all gimmicks? I am now under the impression, that gimmicks are just a term you use, to mean anything other than small or chainless baskets, open fairways on golf courses.

Are you to the point of just ," anything", to justify having an opinion that is a vast outlier?

I repeat.....lame.
because if you look around, tourney registrations are going very quickly. 6 months with no organized play does indeed make people Jones to play.

But, I prefer woods disc golf over open field. So, the dilemma presented here sort of manages itself if you don't get all saw happy.
Because it takes the sport out of it.
