Default How should different events/tours be set up for discussion here?

Should we still put up a new thread event by event like always, or should we set up a thread for each 'tour' - PDGA, DGPT, Jomez?

It would likely change the chatter a bit from event details to overall player performance.

For example, instead of "Has the basket changed placement behind the water tower?"
Talk would morph into "Nate has failed to win any event on Jomez yet this season. Does lower competition lower his playing level?"
"Nah, his wife wasn't able to travel with him so he's also a full -time Dad for the last 4 weeks"
or something similar.

I think we should at least 'sticky' the respective channels' filming schedules here.

Feel free to contribute any ideas, especially bad ones so mine sounds even better.

I'm sure that talk will end up in any specific event threads anyhow...

Trying to keep us on topic is like herding cats.

I doubt any tournament thread would actually stay on topic if more than two posts, but this would provide a place for thread drift within each tour.

"man, at Jomez event xyz last week, so and so had BBQ with no sauce AT ALL so I sold off all his sig line discs. Can't rep that guy"

Maybe a subforum for videos?

I suspect a lot of people think of many events as stand-alone, more than what tour (or video series) they're part of.

Your original post drifted to a Nate Sexton bashing by the 4th sentence, how could we possibly keep discussions organized with examples like that?

Video crew specific threads will just end up like the half dozen of those we already have. I would more enjoy a comprehensive tournament video thread or a tournament by tournament.

I hope you are kidding and terrible at it.

If not, the italics are there to help you understand that I was quoting your mom.

Each tournament a separate thread. Why? If you are not discussing the specifics of tournament placings and news, then you are discussing the overall standings for the tour.

There are only two tours: DGPT and PDGA. There are many schedules, but only two tours that have points, standings, etc.

It seems petty, but it's my cry against "us vs. them" based on the media debacle of 2018.

That was kind of my point. I think there are plenty of "debacle" threads. While the outrage, of a business decision seems worthy of another thread, on the surface, I was hoping to have threads dedicated to discussion of play, versus the rehash of anti Dodge rhetoric.
