Just signed up for DGN. I'd like to thank this thread ofr the reminder. All the $8.99 price quotes here had me concerned they raised their initially advertised $5/mo fee. Forgot there were so many non-PDGA members on this site. With the PDGA membership the cost is only $4.50/mo which is a no brainer. The mobile app looks great.

It definitely is putting a tiptoe across the line to becoming scripted reality TV.

I always suspected that DGCR was full of cranky old guys and now this whole Brodie thing has confirmed it.

I remember back in the early 2000's when people were cranky about Tiger Woods getting the vast majority of airtime and attention on the PGA. I reminded them then, and it seems appropriate now with Brodie, that 1) he doesn't control what gets aired, and 2) the businesses that air things are doing so to ultimately make money and will spend the most time on the guys with the most buzz around them. The fact that there is a "Brodie Post" here and not one (at least not active) on the other pros show that they are doing exactly what they should be doing for the time being at least.

I get the difference between Tiger and Brodie is that Tiger was already playing at an elite level but I think the theory still still applies.

It's alright, someone already compared him to LeBron earlier in the thread.

There will also be bonus content behind the paywall on DGN.
Thank you. That's what I thought but then jv's comment confused me (which is easily done).

Hmmmm. Now if this is the case, I still might have to get the app or whatever, as long as there IS post production coverage including Brodie. Normally I want to only watch the best of the best, but I must admit that I want to see Bro's round, whether great, a train wreck, or somewhere in between.
