From a purely financial numbers game, I'm always surprised that quite a few (non top elite) players who have annual low tour earnings continue the grind. Especially for the players 30 or older, I've said it before, but once you get past the fan excitement and research how much money your favorite player is making, well....there really is not much money in this game once you get past the top 10 elite players or so.

I also find it interesting that there is a "space reserved" right in between both Pauls. I'm guessing this means a player better than uli and not as good as PmB. Any thoughts who this could be????

I thought the same thing. .but who can it really be. . most players "that good" are under contract.

Is Conrad under a long Innova contract??

Conrad is with Innova through 2020, unless Discraft pays to break his contract, which is unlikely to happen.

That Elite Team Tracker is actually an amazing idea. I honestly think Calvin Heimburg is the only free agent that belongs to the first row. Or maybe Catrina Allen...

Is Austin Turner of the Elite Team? os has he left Discraft?

Wonder if they will have any FPO players on the Elite Team?

He was in the Elite team for 2019, but it looks like he will not be for 2020.
He was touring with Big Jerm, so he might join Innova. This could make sense as he is from the Charlotte area, and this was one of the reasons why Bir Jerm made the move to Innova.

Or he found a job.

For FPO, this was why I brought up Catrina. With no FPO in the team Austin Hannum and the fact that she was part of team Discraft before, I would think it would give some reasons to Discraft to sponsor her.

Austin is still listed on elite. Not sure why people think he's left discraft.

Could that change in 2020? Who knows. But as of right now, he's still with discraft.

The one with 5 blank spots? Also, I didn't say he would there in 2020. Just that he's there now.

*edit* I see the writing on the hover over 5 spots now. Looks like he won't be on elite on 2020. Doesn't mean he isn't with discraft, though.

I'm just entertained by the photo of Chris Hysell putting at an old DISCatcher with the Innova barstamp logo lined up like it's an Innova publicity shot.
