I tried making it through that vlog and I distinctly remember him mentioning ingesting a lot of caffeine. Save the diagnosing for the pros.

As someone with adhd, kindly gfy. Have you ever read the garbage that you post? Spastic and random would be an upgrade for you.

Yep. I’ve blocked a lot of what I did as a 19 year old, but what I remember is pretty cringeworthy. Difference is I didn’t have thousands of people watching me via social media. He’ll grow up.

Surely not ANYONE. But I do think Simon is/was above Paul in the innate talent tree at least at some point in history, not saying Paul didnt have it, but Simon even moreso. Simon started as a kid already. But that good amount of innate talent + workethic + drive to improve + desire to win = Paul has him looking at his taillights, long gone, bye bye.

I worry about the length of Simon's career due to injuries. His head forward posture puts him in danger of serious shoulder injuries.

I love watching Simon play and would hate to see his career cut short due to injuries. Simon doesn't have to win to add great entertainment to the card, only be good enough to get on a filmed card.

If I were a sponsor, I would want someone with his, GG or Kevin Jones attitude to represent me.

I’d love to have him on my card. I used to play ultimate with a guy who would say, “Whatever you do, make sure it’s cool.” Simon throwing a disc is cool.
I don’t often post to disagree with someone, but in this case I must. Sure I enjoy “Simon routes” and such. I also like his personality. Don’t get me wrong.

But I love the accuracy and precision that McBeth plays with. I didn’t look up the stats, But his scrambling is amazing, too.

Plus I think back to the 2015 Worlds, round 5, at Moraine. Check out the CCDG coverage. Hole #6 typically sees rollers and low air shots under a grove of trees. But Paul took the “Simon”, errrrr, “McBeth” route over everything. It was ridiculous. So Paul definitely has that side to him. I think that some people discount apartment l’s distance. That whole round was awesome to watch.
