All I can confirm is that the players are supposed to wear team merchandise flair, minimum 15 pieces, in alignment with the percentages of their sponsorship. Its in their contracts. Rumor is Robert McCall really tracked peoples flair. Created lots of friction. Main reason he was moved out of the Team Manager position to Marketing team. People grew tired of his flair reports.
Robert, How much time would you say you spend each week on these flair reports?...

In other news, Paul McBeth was spotted wearing a jacket that said NOVA in large print.

So McBeth can't feed his dog Innova Dog Food?

I see where you're coming from, but I doubt anyone thinks it's as big a deal as you do.

Yes, Innova makes some light hoodies and jackets, but what Barsby is wearing is a waterproof/breathable membrane jacket. I don't think Innova has ever dabbled in that type of technical outerwear. So Innova pros are free to wear whatever they like when it's raining hard.

The fact that the "CRAFT" logo is so similar to part of Discraft's is a funny coincidence, but I doubt anyone's feathers are too ruffled about it. (Except yours, apparently. Or you're trolling, in which case: great job! )

http://westsidediscs.com First result in Google. All in English.



Players from any of the three teams are allowed to use bags branded by any of the three companies, same as with the discs. It is true that we are limited to just bags branded by the three companies. With the variety and quality available (including carts), why would we need to use anything else?
I found the Finnish site by mistake at the time, I went with one of the other searches below the first one.
Thanks for the Info, I was wondering if DD at least at had to use a the Bags of its own brand. I know your company does have some of the best quality in bags namely the DD Stuff and I saw some like Ricky when on the team using the DD cart but it is odd that most other brands do not have the players having to use there bags except that some brands partner with grip like Discmania and Discraft so those players often use those models that the company contracted with to have Discraft/Discmania logos on the bags unless they have a sponsor with a brand that does not use Discraft logos on it, they often add the Discraft logo .

At one point Innova players had to have its players use the Innova bags at least that was what you saw in the mid 2000's if they were not, but at the time they had one or two of the best bigger quad strap bags for players and most others were not nearly as nice except the Discraft Tournament single strap quad compatible bag the ones made after 2007 being that the older ones were so durable they often lasted 10-11 years or so before falling apart at the seams with rough to heavy use.
