Climo vs Barry has been mentioned, but I'd like one about the others Russell, Rico, Al Shack, etc.

The early days would be a good one too, some of those guys are still around and would have some stories. Johnny Sias for example won open worlds in 86, and grandmaster and sr. grandmaster recently.

The distance competitions, and the winners

I'm on the other side of this coin. I would prefer NOT to see 30 in 30 style feature.

My position on this subject is a reflection of the NHL doing 30 in 30 features.

I realize athletes are humans first and professional athletes second, and many people want the nitty-gritty details of their personal lives. I am just the opposite. Let them keep their personal lives off-camera.

I realize this is more of an issue for NHL players than professional disc golfers, but I found that I really didn't like the people the players were once I got to "know" them through the 30 in 30 feature.

Also, those things are soo goddam dramatic, it turns sports into reality TV, which I also hate.

I realize this is probably not a popular opinion, but it is a contrasting one...

Then there is all that fun disc golf stereotype stuff that the sport has not outgrown. Like it or not, safety meetings on hole 10 at the local city course make for good TV.

Oh yea, and Ricky's foot fault at the Memorial...
If only Chains had of made it :-(

Not sure you understand what 30 for 30 really is. 30 for 30 is a short-form (30-60 minutes) documentary series by ESPN. It isn't reality TV at all. Yes, it might get into behind the scenes stuff if it's warranted by the subject matter. The best 30 for 30s are about events rather than specific people (like The U about the University of Miami football program in the 80s or Survive and Advance about the 1983 NC State Cinderella run in the NCAA tournament).

In that vein, I'd rather see a doc about the playoff at the 2003 USDGC between Climo and Schultz. Or the first Worlds ever held. Or some of the classic courses/events that are now defunct (there was some farm that hosted popular tournaments in the 90s...the name is escaping me at the moment).

The only unfortunate thing when it comes to documentaries about a lot of things in disc golf's past is the lack of footage. A lot of these historical topics would probably have to be more of an interview or round-table discussion than a true documentary. I mean, there's probably no video or film of the first Worlds.

Oh yeah I forgot about that! That may have been before he switched arms, or right after. Either way, just crazy.

Boylan Farm, Laurel Springs, NC. There's actually video of the 1989 tournament (along with a lot of other mid- to late '80s/eaerly '90s tournaments) in Tony Tomasino's (PDGA 1576) youtube channel:
