Default The inevitable 2020 Pros switching sponsor thread

Well boys, the season isnt over yet but its gonna be soon. Work is slow and i could use some entertainment.

Ill start the thread with this.

Jussi (discmania CEO) did an AMA on instagram a week ago. Both him and nikko revealed that they were in discussions but with nothing solid in plan.

Think trilogy will be losing or picking anyone up?

Lets hear the speculation!!

Chris Clemons could be a name to watch. I wouldn't be surprised to see him move to Discraft. He's good buddies with Presnell and doesn't seem to fit the bill of the annoying DD social media always in your face cult.

I wonder if Discraft will be keeping all the folks they picked up during the last off season. It seemed liked a sudden splurge or a "Hey were back!" move that wasn't entirely thought out. Getting Paul and Uli was big, and Hammes just showed his potential, the rest appear like a mixed bag. Do Hannum, Presnell, Barham, Earhart, and Turner really merit being on the "Elite Team"? Honestly, how do they match up with Innova's Star Team? I think there could be some movement or I could be completely wrong, we'll see.

Here's a good resource to start from, sortable by year. Dickerson is with Prodigy through 2020.

Emerson Keith signed a 3-year extension with Latitude 64.

Announced today, Albert Tamm signed a 3-year extension with Latitude 64.

He could always throw a tantrum, like another past prodigy player who wanted out of their contract...

Not sure we'll see much notable movement, at least compared to last year. I would not be surprised to see more of the Europeans being signed the big manufacturers.

My bet on Nikko is that he is working on a paid, mixed-bag deal. He could (theoretically) get "minor" mixed bag sponsorships from a handful of companies and make a pretty decent living.

I think the McBeth signing was a one-time splash in the pan deal. Future stars will have some sort of mixed bag deal with multiple sponsors. It may take 5-10 more years to get to that model, but I think that is the way our sport is headed.

I like Dickerson with Prodigy. He's become one of my favorites to watch. I could see Clemons switching since he doesn't fit the trilogy mold. But, I could also see trilogy throwing money at him to stay.
