Not really. The NFL game is a real dud, I liked it a long time ago. The NBA game is zero defense till the last 3 minutes. The NHL? I don't know, never watched it. All Star games are pretty much meh. Oh I forgot baseball. Do people still like baseball? lol

Most all star games/events are more for the fans to see their favorite players. As far as I know baseball is the only one with any real implications since it determines the home team for the World Series?

Nope. They (thankfully) did away with that stupid rule several years ago.

So now the baseball all star is just an exhibition game like the other sports?

I don’t remember paying anything to watch a professional all-star game in any other sport. Will we pay to watch in Disc Golf?

With Ricky and Paul not going it's not really an All-Star event on the MPO side

LOL!

Hasn't Jomez been doing goofy putting contests and such as filler during the down months? It's the same concept IMO; there is dead air time on that weekend if you don't want to watch pregame hype and DGPT hasn't had any content in a hot minute + you have had all the sponsor switches so if that creates any sort of interest i.e. "See Ricky with his all-new Dynamic Discs bag" you can plug into that.
