And I think we all know why California is seeing both residents and businesses flee. You had it coming commies. Reap what you sow.

If I were a sponsored player I'd assume my job was to talk about, mention, write about, and get announcers to mention the discs I threw every chance I got.

If I made a good drive "Love my D2!".
Give a list of discs to the crew filming.
Hold up my putter toward the camera after sinking a long putt .
Etc.

I don't understand why you'd keep it a secret.

AND all my discs would be stock stamps, so interested ams could get the same discs a pro uses.

You can only pass so much on to the consumer before they simply purchase from a different company.

Discraft and MVP are out in cow country Michigan and the business costs are low. There is no way California can compete with a state like Michigan in terms of costs for running businesses especially in manufacturing.

Jussi is thinking long term and pragmatically. Smart move.

Fans always side with ownership. Were I a touring player, I could think of 8 million things I’d rather do instead of updating my disc list before each round. And I might just list everything as my sig disc. “Yup, that’s right, 22 of my sig disc.”

McBeth’s intagram story today is a share of Brodie Smith’s video showing Paul and Simon Lizotte doing trick shots inside an indoor soccer facility. A clue? Or a decoy? Someone help with a pic!

We live in a social marketing world. Tina Oakley sells discs, she gets sponsored. If I were sponsoring players it'd be in the contract they do these things. That's the whole reason to sponsor them, move plastic.

McBeth was unquestionably the face of Innova, and by all accounts was being paid pretty well too. The logical conclusion from that is that he must be getting something exceptional to leave. Under the assumption that he is going to discraft and they don't have the means to make a better cash offer than Innova, one concludes that he is leaving for something better/other than straight cash.

Ricky on the other hand could be thought of as an extremely talented free agent, so going with the biggest cash offer could make sense.

I can speculate all day, ask me another!

2018 World Champion Paige Bjerkaas Signs Two-Year Agreement with Dynamic Discs

Dynamic Discs is excited to announce that we have reached an agreement with Paige Bjerkaas for the 2019 and 2020 seasons! Bjerkaas has played for Team Dynamic Discs since 2009 when she was in seventh grade, and she has collected multiple wins since, including the 2010 Junior World Championship. In 2018, Paige faced a difficult decision - return to Emporia State for the fall semester or stay out on the road for the remainder of the year. Ultimately, she chose to tour for the remainder of the year, and most would call it a life-changing decision, resulting in winning the FPO 2018 World Championship.

As you may have seen, Paige recently purchased a touring van with Dynamic Discs’ support, and we can’t wait to see how she thrives out on the road! About her upcoming seasons, Bjerkaas said, “I am excited to have the opportunity to represent Dynamic Discs in the best way that I can. Dynamic Discs has believed in me for many years, and I’m looking forward to making them proud while touring full-time!”

If you want to join us in supporting Paige, pick up one of her signature Fuzion Judges or special stamps now, or you can grab a Lucid-X Getaway in 2019. We’re proud of you, Paige!

I did read it. And you said it as well...and then, for some reason, redundantly used allusion when you had already plainly stated it.

California is an expensive place to live and do business...
but Blue since 92 and is the 5th largest economy in the world (larger than the UK, who has twice the population) And during the last presidency, we accounted for a quarter of the nation's GPD growth, so you should be rooting for us...we're all linked, at least fiscally. I wouldn't let out a Nelson-laugh if all of Nebraska's corn crops were wiped out due to GMO legislation i didn't agree with.
