I think that there's a lot of "color" to be had on tour that we aren't seeing - occasionally I'll hear Ian and Corey or Nate and Jerm mention something about Paul ribbing another player, or that there was some running joke going on on the card or the like, but we don't see that due to the crisp editing. I would call on Jomez and CCDG to try something new next season and showing a little bit of the conversation and camaraderie between holes. This would stretch the videos a bit but would allow for more commentary between holes and allow us to see some of that personality come out that we know is there.

Not even close to what I was suggesting.

Yes. We need a behind the tour cut. I would love that.

I would love to see more entertainment value in the interviews and tour. Maybe they should do a Halloween tournament or April Fools sort of one.. Maybe Nikko could dress like McEnroe and cook up an attitude to match. Or maybe the Monday Night Raw Tourney encourage gaudy costumes and smack talk kind of a one day a year purge on decorum.

As much fun as it is to watch a train wreck I don't think any serious dg players want to do anything off track the way sponsors duck and drop athletes to disassociate their product with an athletes poor behaviour it's suicide. There isn't that much money going around, or public interest, someone would have to be untouchably awesome to talk sh** and still have a company pay for them to play.

Your contention is that it's an untrue generalization? Or are you upset that I quoted you when I said it?

A large enough percentage of this forums active voices seem to throw a lot of shade towards top pros. The Ricky hate alone is astounding.

The comparison between Wrestling and DG is spot on when it comes to fanboyism.

Cool man. You don't care.

Sounds like you expected me to care about your lololol moment.

I can get on board with this. We need a John McEnroe, or a real PDGA rodman. Disc Golf equivalent to Happy Gilmore?...
