The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Wow, I didn't realize Teddy was such a fan of the semicolon. Was this quote from the early days before end punctuation had really caught on?

Default No DGWT in 2018

https://discgolf.ultiworld.com/2017/...t-return-2018/

Can't say I'm shocked. I think they were overreaching a little bit, with prizes not being worth the cost of participating in overseas tour events.

Their coverage was also not great overall and social media streaming of live events not a smart decision in my opinion.

Do you think it will return or have we already seen the last of the DGWT??

From a literate time when sentences were really constructed, and not just spit out. Or perhaps Teddy was under a sentence quota, but of course never short of words. I reckon the guys who manually set type in the newsrooms of the day had to keep a huge stock of punctuation on hand (but far fewer emojis).

Shocking to see his strategy of ignoring the hardcore established fanbase and abandoning live coverage for social media updates (LOL) didn't work.

Shocking I tell you.

You (and others) may not think the DGWT is a big deal, but they are working to strengthen our reputation and promote the sport of disc golf. To me, that is a positive influence in the right direction.

So, even though taking a year off will not destroy the sport, it does not move us forward unless they come out big in 2019. Here's to hoping for a full recovery and improvement for the 2019 season.
I'm not sure angering your base (other disc golfers) "is a positive influence in the right direction." A large portion of the comments about the DGWT have been about the lack of live coverage, or the terrible no-coverage/after-show seen in the first year. All the negativity surrounding the DGWT probably doesn't look good to outside sponsors.

30 posts in and still no JT, my bet would've been him playing defense already. C'mon jaime tell us how this isn't a bad look.

I fear you over legitimize the few vocal folks on a thread here. Though, several were brought to the edge of pitchforks and torches on DGCR, I don't thing lack of live coverage was the demise. Many....myself included, are quite happy with post coverage.
