Yeah fair enough, basically the reason why I want stand and deliver. But I will say that the 10m circle rule is applied correctly in almost all cases, even if by guesswork. Most players have a good idea of where 10m is and can guess that range pretty well.

So, while there might not be a penalty (there is not) for picking up the mini too fast, you say that doing so would cause the player to forfeit his previous lie and prevent them from opting to abandon the throw (809.01a) on a throw that lands OB or in an otherwise undesirable area? Can you cite the rule for that? I don't think there is one.
MJ also starts walking to the disc sometimes. This second part I thought was a violation? I feel I am wrong thinking on it.

Before moving forward the player must show balance. As long as he showed balance before walking forward he's good.

It's a problem that will keep getting worse as long as the baskets stay the same size.
There are 9 such players in the World currently, 2 of whom have so few rounds that their rating is highly suspect.

I suspect 10 years from now we could have 30 players rated over 1040. Yet we have a basket size from 1975. The basket has not kept up with the evolution of player skill, not even close. Disc golf was designed to be a fun game in the park. Not a professional sport. We need a professional sized target.

To me, it's more that it doesn't look like anything else in our sport. I was watching once with a non-disc golfer, trying to explain the sport. HE thought the first step putt he saw should be illegal.

At some point casual fans should matter.

Anyone here have any gouge or scoop on the subject?
Why isn't this thread under the "Rules" section?

This exactly. When casual, non-disc golfers see that they will not take pro disc golf seriously.

Current golfers claim the pros of today are real athletes unlike the pros that played against Climo. So real athletes need to use all their muscles to propel an aerodynamic disc that weighs 175 grams max less than 100 feet?

OK.

OK.
Having people who lack knowledge of how an activity is played and why it is played that way influence decisions about the whats, hows, and whys is a very bad idea.

“I didn’t know enough to even know but I don’t like it or understand it, noting here that I don’t understand it because I have not been immersed in it long enough to understand it” isn’t a sound way to do anything and we have a very prominent national example for all to see why this is a bad idea. But, hey, maybe getting rid of the step putt will make disc golf great for some people for the first time!

When I first started playing disc golf I thought having to throw from out of natural “OB” was not a good thing. But now I get disc golf after 5 years of playing, and now I know.

The casual soccer fan would surely get rid of the offside rule while calling it “offsides.”
