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
Hard enough to find my own discs while avoiding hordes of lyme ticks.

You doth bequeath him Tickless Rick. LOL, funniest thing I've seen in these scary Corona times.

I do that shot often if I am totally piched off in the right side of the fairway and the only way to get any distance is to reach over my head and throw it upside down on a forehand. Usually with a mid. Can get pretty sick shots way down the fairway. Would never really think about putting with it tho.

I mean this is how hype works, right? If no one ever shuts up and things like this thread are on the front page with recent posts and us yammering about him, it's working. Right?

So far as publicity stunts go, this one worked perfectly. It has the disc golf community talking endlessly about him and presumably has his followers watching and possibly playing disc golf. Win/win. This would be a good time for his followers to try disc golf; the pandemic has pretty much everything else shut down but the park is open...get out of the house and frolf some!

Brodie tied AJ in his first tournament. Interesting.

Precisely! That’s why I never really understood the vitriol towards a newcomer- any newcomer!

I don't know, but I think they really dropped the ball by making the 1st round of his 1st event PPV. It would have been priceless info seeing how many concurrent viewers his card would have had on Youtube live, as well as the rolling view numbers since the conclusion of the round. It was a one time chance to see what his influence would have been. With over 2 million Youtube subscribers and almost a million on Twitter and another million on Instagram, a simple click on a link to see him playing his first tournament live seemed like a no-brainer decision.

Haven't they got the best of both worlds?

They got the people who were interested enough in disc golf and the Brodie journey to sign up for the ppv round.

Now they are going to get everyone else via YouTube eyeballs.

My point was that it was a missed opportunity.
