They very well may be someone trying to do good and going about it the wrong way...or they could be someone who is ignoring someone else's hard work and actively trying to undermine an established weekly or monthly.

From the little information given ("pisses everyone off..."), and the nature of the post (not needing or asking for a solution, but maybe a little commiseration through humor), I'd say this guy is the latter.

Those people exist too. Maybe enough of them do to warrant a name? Social media is a good a place as any to see...

Could be, but ultimately a lack of effective communication is the root. If some guy is actively trying to undermine an established weekly or monthly, it would stand to reason he is doing so for some altruistic reason. I don't buy that there are scads of rogue TD looking to simply trash the local scene. There is obviously two sides to the story and I am pretty confident that the guy is doing what he sees as a positive.

Trying to establish an alternative to the current scene is generally done out of need for such alternative or in response to him feeling the current system is lacking in some way. Maybe I am naive, but some guy putting in, what would seem to be a lot of work, likely is not just looking to screw over the disc golf community.

I see this sometimes around here with various TD's. They are protective and sometimes can get butthurt with somebody new starting up a tournament series or league.

I obviously don't know much of the details here, but sure hate to see two factions fighting against one another when the sum of their efforts could be greater than the individual efforts.

OK.......now I will play along. Atilla, the killa of fun.

I though TD meant Turning Driver, though a Tournament plastic Destroyer would be cool, beat in nicely and faster than Stars.

Great feedback was hoping for an existing term.

I will suggest "Course Cancroid" (n) as the broad term. Specific action further defined by a local verb signifying the particular bad behavior that locally or regionally would be clearly understood based on culprit....

Used in a sentence...

"That Course Cancroid ShAM'd again."

Loosly translated as "that Disc golfer who disrespects established course club on an established course has taken the liberty to conduct that bad behavior he has grown to be associated with again without remorse.

Like the dictionary idea. Start with hyzer.
