Yeah dude. Tickless Rick all day and you got yourself a ballgame. Well, a disc game to be exact.

Not elitist but just dont enjoy watching subpar throws when it not myself or my buddies throwing. A lot of the time I dont watch them either. Makes looking for the discs a PITA

Given DGN's attempted format of "covering the story" and not shot-by-shot coverage, it's not unreasonable to think they might check in on him during the round regardless of placement.

Yes, he has earned feature card exposure regardless how he plays in the tourney.
I found Brodie's channel through disc golf, not the other way around, but following the story of an accomplished athlete entering the sport has been fun. I paid for a month of DGN simply to tune in tonight. I'm probably not alone in that. So I'd say he's right where he belongs.

I didn't like Brodie at first but more I see his videos, more I like him. All the doubts I had about the Brodie thing vanished.
He seems very realistic about his level and many people start playing disc golf because of his videos.
I wish him only the best and I hope he will play well today. He won't play great of course, but good would be already a nice thing.
I'm glad he is on the lead card. He doesn't deserve it for his level but I think he deserves it for all the good he does to disc golf.

The other good thing is if Brodie comes out and totally lays an egg then all of the fanboys might shut up.

More likely is he will be inconsistent and nobody will ever shut up.

The thought of you averting your eyes in a casual setting to spare yourself the anguish of another subpar throw- but not being an elitist- is going to get me through this day with a smile.

Imagine how much dgcr run it would get if brodie, weema, and joe bishop all showed up to the same tourney.

His skills are coming together, but this game is harder than it seems. I wouldn’t be shocked if he throws up a 1000 rated round, but his rating probably won’t be there for some time.

Bro-D Rubber blend Roaches coming soon. If these are like the Matt Bell Steadys, Roach throwers are in for a treat (not to mention not having to see the dumb artwork)

And in that case, more power to him. I'll watch it. But also, running hard for big throw-ins will cost him a lot of throws...especially at The bEast.
If Brodie is smart (and I think he is), he will lean on the sidearm in the woods as much as he can. Having a top sidearm you enter the sport is HUGE for course management on the 12 of the 18 holes.
