Sorry, rocthecourse....the survey clearly shows that over 80% of players want to lower the baskets. We shall begin work (under the guidence of oldmandiscer) to lower every basket in the world. Let's get to work.

When you're digging that hole for your anchor, just forget the anchor and insert the basket flush with the ground like ball golf.

I've played at least 3 of those, too. Roller aces are cool.

We should do a survey to prove our point:

x - Roller aces are cool.
o - I don't like aces.

Then claim that people only love roller aces, therefore disc golf should ban all aces, other than roller aces. I mean 95% of the people would vote for Roller aces are cool, right?? All aces, other than roller aces, are too easy.....FACT!!

Stop with this BS "luck" talk already. Do you roll dice before you putt? Are you spinning a wheel before your drives?

I've had far too many pick-up rounds with people like you...always blaming everything but themselves for their 'unlucky' drive or putt. The guy who has to throw another disc off the tee because their first shot was 'unlucky' and they hit a tree in the fairway. The guy who has to remind everyone that they would have won if 'luck' had been on their side instead of yours.

People like you are the reason I prefer to play alone.
No need to get angry, assumptive and presumptuous. I'm not even talking about myself, I'm talking in general about DGPT/NT/USDGC and the way disc golf is trending. The trend is to create gimmicks to raise scores and the vast majority think it's silly.

This. It's easier to add to an existing course than subtract what's on it.

My assumptions towards you are based on the last thread you argued to death. You like to throw out statistics to meet your narrative, but your arguments are based on your feelings and how things are 'unlucky' for you.

This poll of yours is specifically slanted to give you the results you want...Raised baskets and natural OB are not mutually exclusive and neither is regular height baskets and roped off OB, so why did you group them the way you did?

We get it...you don't like unlucky trees in the fairway...you don't like unlucky mounds that give you unlucky rollaways...you don't like artificial OB that you are unlucky to land in.

The vast majority sees a very different trend than you:
