I looked through this thread quickly and didn't see anything but don't feel like watching the whole video...
There are shorter clip versions of the podcast.

I could see it more if you were saying he could be throwing 1010 rated rounds consistently at the end of the year, but I don't see him ending the year in the 1010 range in terms of his actual rating.
Helps his "brand" to not go out on tour and get smoked every week. Sell some Zones in between showings etc.. He has benefited from COVID offseason 2.0 for sure.

thanks

I will say I would be more convinced if they talked about other courses more, and not just a basically brand new one that obviously could use some changing up of par 4s

As a long time Brodie fan, I disagree. I think it serves his brand perfectly to be the guy trying to improve and his fans watching his progress along the way. It's ok if he comes in 1st or last, as long as we think he's putting in the time. If he came in DFL @ a DGPT event, if his round was covered and he was also mic'd up to hear his comments, that would be an entertaining video to watch. I'm guessing Brodie is more concerned with views than ratings.

I'd say he's concerned about his rating because he sees how it can impact his views. He has his legions, but he knows he needs to show out to keep and continue to draw disc golfers to his product.

Brodie is too competitive to not care about winning/ratings.

Also, the more rounds he posts with his foundation buddies helps you understand why the chubby guy left.
He is a relentless corny trash talking BRO. Some ppl can take it, others cant.

Seems like I'd fit in well then. Any idea how to convince them?

Who knows. You better get a "get freaky" zone with it for that price.
