No idea as to the validity of the million dollar plus thing, but let's still pump the breaks. If it is a million per year that we're talking about, then yeah, that might garner some outside attention. But it probably isn't even close to that. A million dollars over a number of years (3? 4? 5?)? Much more realistic and not going to make many waves outside of our very insular community.

All it takes is one person to post a number and ten people copy it and 100 people quote them and the next thing you know 10000 are calling it a fact.

Yeah, I've gotten a million over four from several people. The CCDG guy seems to yell "HIGHER!" to all the guesses I've seen, though. In the end, I don't think the terms of the deal will ever be disclosed and we will just speculate until the end of time about how much $$$ it took to lure Paul McBeth away from Innova.

Or maybe people will realize one by one that we don't really care. Oh, look! End of time wondering averted for me.

How is he getting that much from Discraft, when he's staying with Innova?

Neither is "snuck", but we use it all of the time. How about a disc named "The Snucker"?

Going along the lines of another DC disc, the Flick, just wipe a letter and what do you get?
