That's why Marty McFly's vids were so good. No commentary, just DG. He really needs to start making vids again...if his Brodigy overlords will let him.

Personally not a fan of the no commentary, but I do like Terry's current style of catching a conversation or a little banter with a player between holes and putting it into the production. Final round back 9 of Throw Down the Mountain was an entertaining watch for that reason. We had Jerm's "why is there a stake there!?!?!" moment, JohnE figuring out what he needs to do to get a USDGC spot, Simon talking about his monster throw and his worry about the putt. I found it all very entertaining.

Buildings on the course.... I dont think they've EVER come into play (maybe, just maybe, low cards on 11 throwing into the backyards, although I think thats more of an AM problem) Whats your beef with them? Visuals?

Haven't played the course, but would love to. Most pros rave about how much they like the course, which is good enough for me.

Eagle giving away his bag like that is the type of gesture that could really propel his stardom and potentially end up being very lucrative in a disc golf rich country like Finland.

Eagle could be to Finland, what Hasselhoff is to Germany.

I'm with you on this. I think Nate and Jerm are great, but I think Perkins has a knack for this too

I prefer commentary, but wonder if they would get more cumulative views if they released 2 versions, one with and one without. Without commentary it does feel closer to you actually being there.

For me, it is visually unappealing to be playing disc golf with large buildings in view (as well as sidewalks, light stands, roads, etc.) even if they don't actually come into play. The fewer man made things I can see, the more I find it appealing.

I like BigSexy commentary, but Big Jerm has a habit of throwing too many "spoilers" out himself.
