Old Hole 1 was included in the playoff rotation to help to keep the action centered around the clubhouse where the crowd and the media teams would be. Crowd and media logistics have become central to the arena experience, and hopefully will play an even larger role in the Championship's future. Old Hole 1 has decided past playoffs, so it seemed worthy of inclusion. I enjoyed a fun, family moment on Saturday afternoon as the lead group came into the back stretch with Andrew's brother Riley helping David Shope move the target from Arena #1 to playoff 1 and Andrew's sister Katie sweeping off the tee to Official Starter Andy Greene's standard while I gave the guardian bushes a last minute haircut. The planning notes for 2020 include having the playoff hole ready for practice.

Being more decorated is irrelevant. "Fair Pay" would result in the women's team making less money, as they now make more in terms of what they generate verse the men. The only "gender bias" between the USMNT and USWNT is that the women get a higher percentage of what they generate which, if people were honest with themselves, is unfair to the men's team.

I was not referencing disc golf - only the comment about the false inequities of our national soccer teams. I may have not been clear about that.

Completely disagree, but this is not the forum for this discussion.

Yet you made several strong arguments earlier. If you don't think said debate sould be had, then don't make said strong comments.

Pot meet kettle.

The womens team makes a higher percentage of profits than the mens team. That's a fact and I don't see how this is debatable. Equal pay would hurt their pay at this point.

Wow, Thready McDrifterson.

Getting things back on track:
I really like Climo's commentary on the SpinTV post-produced coverage. I was ready to write him off as a sentimental keepsake: out of touch with the modern game, and/or bad at expressing his thoughts. But neither was true. He had great insights, and his frank delivery style left no questions on the table.

Part of his success was that he didn't seem to be trying too hard. Didn't try to be funny, and didn't feel the need to fill every second of the coverage with mindless banter. But he has natural credibility so he doesn't need to go out of the way to try and sound extra smart. And I think his low monotone voice goes well with the "that's just the way it is" commentary style.

I love Climo’s commentary too. Very insightful, great delivery and sounds exactly like Bob Ross.

Dont bother with JT. He has shown multiple on here that he cant be reasoned with. His mind is closed and he will fight tooth and nail for what he thinks is correct.

If Bob Ross had a 3 pack a day habit.

His insight is worth the rasp though.
