I've been ticketed for being in posession of an empty beer can and having a buzz in public. Open flask tickets are handed like mad.

Well that's a fallacy, no such thing as a good lawyer. Perhaps a lawyer well practiced in his craft?

The rules against consuming alcohol are definitely what’s stopping beer companies from sponsoring PDGA. NFL, nba, mlb, nhl, nascar and pga all have rules against drinking while playing, and look at how none of them have beer sponsors.

Ok...so everyone who thinks this situation was mishandled because the wording of the rule is poor let's see your revision to the rule without changing the intent from the PDGA.

I see a lot of stones being thrown but not too many solutions...

I'd just add some bit about TD discretion and how practical it is to allow the dude on the ground to consider what will cause the greatest good.

The intent of the rule is easily preserved this way and we cut out the bureaucratic nonsense.

You don't have to do anything, the word "may" says it all.

This is clearly wrong, even though I agree with your interpretation of the word may. As this thread has shown, some people read it some way, and some read it the other. The wording should be more precise. If the intent is to give the TD discretion (honestly, I’m not even sure that’s the actual intent), then it should read something like, the TD is permitted to disqualify the player, based upon their discretion.

So I'm not sure why this is even going on?

OOOOOH it's because people don't know the rules, think that professional disc golf should be a kegger and hate anything the PDGA does.
Too many people think life should be like this. Truly obnoxious.

The Brewers Stadium is called Miller Park, I'm pretty sure they're still making beer...
