Your "if you dont like it, you can leave" reply lets me know your obvious unreasonable bias. You will not bring any logic or rationale to this topic. Thank you

Jomez will not grow without making and fixing mistakes. You need criticism to grow imo. Non-spoilers are so easily avoidable at this point, its annoying.
So what percentage of the dg community cares if its spoiled or not? I, like many others, just want to watch the footage. It doesnt matter to me if I know who won or not and I think most people are the same way. I watch to see people who are better then me play amazing golf and see some beautiful courses. If you are truly watching the footage to find out who won then i think it is up to the consumer to do everything they can do to make sure the results do not get spoiled for themselves. Having "spoilers" out there isnt a mistake nor is it a spoiler. Its news. This is disc golf, which is a live event, just like all sporting events. Once the event is over its now news imo and anybody can report on it how they please.

I dont get pissed off and run to the internet to complain when the Milwaukee Brewers set off fireworks, that I can hear from my house, only after they win. I dont feel like its their duty to keep it secret who won the game just so those who didnt follow it live can also be surprised.

I disagree that you are letting them know directly. This is an internet forum that they may or may not check frequently. You should reach out to them DIRECTLY. Like FB messenger, or some sort of direct message.

And yes, if you don't like their decisions after you plead your case then you don't have to watch that is the ultimate solution. There are plenty of things I don't enjoy that I don't watch.

They are going for a very simple and good looking and stylized thumbnail. They went away from the 4 person thumbnail awhile ago.

Again, plead your case to the judge and see the result.

I honestly don't care if I find out who wins before I watch the footage.

It's still fun to watch if you know who won.

Besides, expecting the media companies not to spoil things for you is peak entitlement.

Personally, I often check PDGA.com before I watch the videos.
I enjoy the footage better when I know how the round went and who won.
No doubt, this may put me in the minority, and I am not discounting those who don't want to know the results.
Spoilers? I just don't get the need for drama.
Just voicing my own personal preference, YMMV.

People who wait for days old content to find out who won a tourney are relics of a bygone era. Time has passed y'all by.

I try not to get spoiled before watching but I know that it is going to happen. Watching the final round of a close tournament not knowing who is going to win makes it more fun to watch but even if I know the winner I am still going to watch.
