You've just run a successful A-tier and made a hell of a profit. PDGA won't say a word about it.
And voila!

I'm going to assume this is sarcasm?

Nothing really fine about that print.
Interesting that this section is about still images, not video.

are you asking me to do this because you can't think of any? I have faith that if you think just a little bit you could come up with a thing or two.

If you want the pros to get paid more, by all means, send your own money. Be the city on the hill, not a rube with a bullhorn.

As Bill said, "Be excellent to each other!"
Couldn't find praxoligy. Did you mean praxeology?

I'm asking because it was your statement and you should be able to back it up. It's not my responsibility to make up for YOUR intellectual laziness.

Ways disc golf is different from other major sports as is most relevant to our discussion:
TV broadcasting. Disc golf is not on broadcast TV, live or otherwise.
Live product. Live coverage of disc golf, when available, is of a certain quality. I would describe it as "semi-professional". As such, if you want to watch live disc golf, you are sacrificing quality for timeliness.
Post round coverage. Doesn't exist for other sports as it exists in disc golf. Why? Because the live product in other sports is better than our post round heavily edited coverage.

want me to keep going?

Still don't see how this makes it (the collective) our responsibility you should remain spoiler free.
