Default Next million(s) dollar dg contract

So, this might have been discussed previously, but I can't really find it. Feel free to scold me if you feel like....

Obviously, by now, the whole world knows of Paul Mcbeths massive contract. My question is, who signs the next one comparable, or great than, Mcbeths. And why?

I'm not super knowledgeable of the current contract situations, but my money is on eagle. Discmania has been doing some splashy things of late, and he's a very "face of franchise" kind of guy. Full of character, big social media personality.

Anyways, your thoughts??

Calling McBeths contract a million dollar contract is stupid. It is over a period of years. I could easily see any number of players getting 5 year $200k per year contracts based on the devaluation of the dollar alone.

Okay. So a contract worth a million dollars isn't a million dollar contract, so let me rephrase....

Who's going to sign the next mega contact that will set the dg world buzzing?

Unless Mcbeths contract wasn't a mega deal.....

Paul and discraft are open about the contract, other players and manufacturers are not as far as I know...hard to say what Ricky’s, Eagle and Simon got

I think a better question is when Paul's contract is up, will Discraft renew it, or will Innova try to poach him back?

Eagle is the best guess. He's young and has more long term potential than Paul and Ricky who are approaching 30. He vlogs now, he throws far, people talk about him... he can move plastic and at the end of the day, that's the most important thing for a business contract with a disc manufacturer.

Plus, Ricky and Simon both just signed 5 year deals I believe.

I know Simon did. It was mentioned that it helped get him a work visa. I have no idea about any of the other people.

Would/could a guy like Seppo be on the radar for a monster kind of deal? Being one of the biggest faces in the whole sport on your entire continent has to have appeal. And dg is very popular there too.
