My biggest question out of all of this:

Who gets their name on the Star Destroyer cash cow now?

And what BBQ sauce comes with it now?

Why unfortunately? Tattar is a solid FPO player. What little I've seen of Lätt is impressive. DC made a move for all three?

I thought that Wysocki moved to Rock Hill or nearby. It would be convenient to be Innova sponsored since Innova's east coast HQ is right there. He could really comb the warehouse for discs of his liking.

Ian: Tasty putt by Paul, what's he putting with there, Corey?

Corey: I believe that's his limited edition tour series Challenger in Sticky Fingers plastic. It's a real grippy blend.

Ian: Oh, he switched it up from the KC Masterpieces?

Corey: Yeah, the weather conditions are so slick out here plus these fly so sweet and saucy.

Sexton: *licks fingers before throw. Tastes like old, PFN Champ Orc. Regrets not being sponsored by Discraft with their new line of discs with BBQ sauce molded into the plastic*

Since moving to Sweden recently, I have fell out of the loop (if I ever was) of good DG gossips from Finland. Based on my limited contacts in here, the overall scene seems to be somewhat lagging in Sweden compared to Finland. There are players and courses but if you try to talk about DG to a random guys, they probably have no idea that the sport exists.

Back in Finland it feels like disc golf has reached almost national sport status in some places, local authorities are supporting courses, and schools have disc golf in sports classes etc.

There are lots of great junior players coming from Finland soon if they keep focused. Like Discmania sponsored Oskari Vikström who just got his rating updated to 1006, at age of 15!

1) The fact that there was even a decision to be made was interesting.
2) Surprised something long term with DD other than 3 years was not announced.

She'll be 30 when the new contract expires. It does seem like that's the magic age in disc golf for something major to change.
Not all that surprised either, but with an expiring contract there was some speculation. Of course, no one thought McBeth would leave Innova either after all his professed love for the brand and now he will be throwing different plastic.

Both Paige’s signed 3 year deals with DD, must be the longest they are willing to offer at this time.

From the DD Carrollton event, there were a lot of questions about Nate Perkins jumping to DD, but he was pretty adamant that he was working on a deal to stay with Discmania.

For what it’s worth, Memphis style BBQ sauce. Hot and sweet is where it is at.

Do you mean that Discraft wasn't willing to pay Paul a higher salary than Innova? Because Ian said on Reddit that Paul chose Discraft for money.

The 5 year deal was for Simon Lizotte; I believe it was mentioned earlier in the thread that they probably made the deal 5 years so he could get a work visa more easily. I believe the same post said there were two re-negotiation windows in the contract
