The hilarious part is that this whole thread stemmed from the live coverage. The aspect ratio on the coverage was incorrect causing EVERYONE to look a good deal wider than they actually are.

Some guys can go out and rip bong hits all day and still manage to play well.
Some can get piss drunk and play BETTER.
But who among you can ride the dragon and still perform on the course?! Even with Jesus tying your tourniquet?

On a serious note, PEDS are everywhere, and are easy to find with this new internet craze.
I am a scrawny tall guy, always have been, but I would never want to take some that could give me bacne, make me beat my girl, or shrink my testes, just to throw a few feet further.
I'm sure someone can tell us what PEDs do what and that not all have these problems, but still, drugs won't make you hit tight tree gaps, add new shots to your arsenal, or extend your putting circle.
BUT, t if there is some magical, mystery drug that does those things with no adverse side affects, I'll guinnea pig 'em

With the talk currently about this, it appears I was 10 years before my time

FYI, alot of professional athletes take PEDs not just for bro gains (getting jacked and muscular). PEDs greatly benefit older players with recovery, strength, and stamina.

If the PDGA ever drug tests, the older players will be at a disadvantage.

Every time I read this thread, I think the UCI needs to take over disc golf.

I think this whole idea is unnecessary at this point.
Until we have a huge sponsor that says they won't contribute their funds until the field is tested, it seems wasteful.
I'm not sure how testing is going to attract larger sponsors unless the PDGA or another org puts on a "Our athletes are drug free" campaign. Otherwise, how will the world magically know Disc Golf now has drug free athletes? Will that suddenly change the minds of companies who might have entertained us in the past?
I also think if you're testing for marijuana, why not test for alcohol. It seems short sighted to test for one thing and not the other when one is obviously just as dominant and abused in our sport.
Let's get that blood alcohol level tested the morning of, shall we? Too much? okay here, blow into this breathalyzer.

Not to mention that you'd have to disqualify like 50% of the field for smoking pot. That would be cool for sponsors, right? When half of their players cant compete.

I'm not even sure how that would work now that it's legal in so much of the US. Do you treat it like going to Amsterdam, or?
