Brodie Smith, and I don't think he is has even played in a PDGA event yet.

I was tired of him just at the first time I found out he wanted to start playing Disc Golf. I thought he might try and be some stunt for Discraft and the possibly PDGA its self.

Yeah I have some respect for the way he is doing stuff in taking it seriously that he wants to compete at the top or a high level as a PDGA Pro, but he seems to be doing it in this big overly long process to have a fan grab for his main YouTube channel that turns me off personally.

Have something to say about how you feel about Paul, Brodie, Paige, or Hannah then post it on their various social media pages and use your real name.

People are People, ask Depeche Mode.
Having manners is not the same as a lack of courage.

In this thread, I answered the OP's question and only expanded on my reasons when asked. If Paul, Brodie, or Hannah asked my opinion (which they never would) I would give them the same honest feedback.

But, to create a social media account (I don't have one) just to go give them negative feedback seems like adding unnecessary negativity to the world.

Besides, even if I were that spiteful, I doubt they would take the feedback from one contrarian. So, the relevance of my opinion barely extends to the edge of this thread.

Also, there are obviously enough people who feel differently (social followers) that they really shouldn't listen to my opinion. The truth is that I'm just not part of their target audience, so my opinion is meaningless.

I don't think Brodie is long for disc golf and agree that this is likely a stunt to add to his (already expansive) YouTube audience.

Since when is having an opinion considered "spouting off"?

This forum is nothing but opinions; opinions on discs, rules, tournaments, companies and pretty much anything else, so then why should opinions on players be somehow excluded?

Will the secret DGCR SJW's "with fake names also I might add" pop out and give those with a less than stellar opinion of a player a sever type lashing?

I also don't care for PP, it drives me nuts to watch her putt.
I don't care for BS because he's an attention whore. I don't hate either of these two, I just don't like them, So sue me for having an opinion.

I also don't give a rats a$$ about social media.

And in real life, I do give my opinion when asked, if no one asks, I keep my mouth shut.

How is Hannah not a vlogger? She has tripled the amount of subscribers Paul had on his YT channel since she started vlogging.

Also, you said "only the fanbois care" immediately after expressing your strong opinion of something. I guess that makes you a fanboi.
