Wish I still had that selection of quality courses around me!

THIS is what I am interested in and I would venture a guess that he does move the needle quite a bit from a business perspective. Agreed on the point about not a lot of people taking up ultimate if Jomez offered it up, but I think that is jaded by the fact that many already have a #1 passion/hobby in their life.

Many comments I see on Jomez videos are along the lines of "I just stumbled upon this channel" and now they have tried + love disc golf. I think any disc golf media company would love to have Brodie interact in between holes with comments of "These guys are good" and other quirky light-hearted things. Also, him just genuinely being amazed by the skills of the top disc golfers. Seems such a WIN-WIN for a media company.

I have always imagined the people who watch Brodie are the same that watch Dude Perfect - just a bunch of people with expendable time on their hands. Introduce an activity that is inexpensive and requires little effort to enjoy and I think that demographic of people are ripe to pick the game up....I mean be exploited. (Just wanted to use that word and feel the essence of being a bitter Snowflake).

Take out the Bro-isms' and this cat has some celebrity that could add some legitimacy to his eligibility to participate with our royalty. <Yeah, I did that on purpose........just feeeeling the Bro'.

It's 2020. Can we agree to leave the way overused "snowflake" in the last decade?

Correct but I'm just saying why don't we wait until he is actually an obnoxious d-bag in a tournament setting before saying he's going to be an obnoxious d-bag in a tournament setting. If that does happen then we can all pile on at that time.

Nobody knows his motivations for doing this except him. Oh yeah, and this disc golf guy who thinks he's Marge Simpson warning us all about the evil Monorail salesman:

Maybe JTacoma is correct, maybe not. Let's say he is correct. How are we being "exploited" if we're just playing casual and tournament disc golf the same as we would with no Brodie Smith around?

JTacoma has more firsthand experience with BS than everyone else in this thread combined.

It appears the JTacoma believes that this is a zero sum game... which of course, it is not.

I love ultimate highlights. Follow more Ultimate content on Instagram than disc golf, because 100% of it are crazy bids and hucks. Never have or would play, though. Catch with an Ultrastar is as far as I go (like the guy below) Just into "frisbee" culture, and I imagine some Ultimate players feel the same.

Those are GUTS discs, they are made for this. These are not wrap speed drivers that will slice and dice... they still are gonna sting though.

Here is Will throwing an 80 MPH GUTS throw, without an X step... and it was caught.
