Eagle said as recently as this past off season in an interview with Terry that he will never throw for another company as long as he is playing disc golf. I highly, highly doubt he goes anywhere at all.

I put Eagle on the list only because his contract is up not because I think he's actually leaving Discmania. If it wasn't already clear, his interview on Brian Earhart's podcast showed that he thinks a lot of Jussi. I have to imagine he's at least talked some to other companies just to get an idea of his value (I think it would be silly not to), but I would be very surprised if he left Discmania.

I was assuming that Tex meant no disc manufacturer sponsorship.

I doubt Henna leaves Innova for Discmania. Plus, it's not entirely clear that Jussi gives much of a **** about FPO.
Remember that DM is not about buying pros. The stars they have, they have acquired early on. Theres nothing stopping a current Team Discmania FPO player to improve their game and get to the top. Or DM getting a new youngster under their wing. But for them to fork over the money and buy an existing top FPO pro... not likely.

Agreed. However, they make so many 'special runs' for their pros. And FPO have always gotten the short end of that stick (see Barsby v Val tour series issue a few years ago).
If a top FPO player sees an opportuntiy and gets an offer for 2-3 popular DM molds with their own stamp, I think it would be likely that at least one would make the jump, especially a Euro player.

I'm pretty sure Paul made those comments throughout his career too. $$$ talks.

I’m sure we have said things in our early 20s that we didn’t stick to. If it come to a change in lifestyle I’m sure he will listen.

Well yeah, Paul stands out because he was the first to be thinking of his post playing days while structuring his deals...if his own disc line is part of the Discraft deal like everybody suspects. The course he’s building would fit in those plans as well.

People compare him to Jordan and Woods because of his dominance, but both of those guys also were stellar in building their own brand.
