That sounds like fun, just for a laugh. Try getting to the teepad of #3 LOL. #12 uphill climb to the new basket should be fun too

Ha 3 inches wider maybe

I was a little busy but the crowds were good listeners for the most part. Only had to threaten one guy with getting kicked out.

One thing I noticed on the coverage was a more limited use of statistics. I find that Big Jerm sometimes overdoes it with the stats, using them to the extent that they distract from providing other forms of analysis (such as on disc flight, choices players made, etc.) Going down the stats rabbit hole can also throw off the timing where the comments end up behind the action.

I wondered if this was a "production" decision made by SpinTV or USDGC/DGWT or Innova. I thought there was a marked difference in how much they went to the stats compared with something like their recent coverage of Green Mountains Championship. They didn't completely ignore the stats -- number of birdies, hardest/easiest hole rankings -- but I sensed that the cut back. Purposeful?

I also found the "Pillars of Justice" snark to be hilarious. They changed the name to the Pillars of something else for round four, but it was equally hilarious. It was clear that Big Jerm thought they were stupid, but he handled his criticism well, I thought.

My biggest complaint against Jerm is that he inserts himself and his views into the commentary WAY too much. Sure, it's good to get extra info than just what we're seeing on the screen, but often Jerm just talks and talks and talks. And doesn't mention 4 or 5 shots that we just saw happen.

Also I don't know why it gets on my nerves... but Jerm, you can't tell if that is 36 or 37 feet away. just stop.

If you treat Nate as the host, and Jerm as the color commentator, then his criticisms are okay. That would be his job. I like Jerm, not as much as Nate, but his stats don't bother me. Hey look, I'm the color guy.

I was super annoyed by the stats when he first did them for the same reason but i feel like he has been gradually cutting that back ever since

Disagree. It's video, why does he need to describe a shot YOU CAN SEE? The personal insight is what makes the "Big Sexy" commentary good. Otherwise, we could be stuck with the disc golf guy and his lame attempts at humor.

I think the Big Sexy commentary is enjoyable but I definitely prefer a mixed bag. I actually liked the anticipation of not knowing who was going to the be the guest commentators as it was usually a pleasant surprise. I firmly believe the Sexy Beast is the best team and wish McBeth would do more commentary, but I like to hear different players POV, even if there aren't the most articulate.
