I still don't get that. I don't watch soccer except Olympics.

Without getting too deep off topic, there is an interesting comparison to step putting.

Offside occurs when the offensive player the ball is played to (simplifying there) is nearer their offensive goal than 2 defenders (usually one is goalie but not always) at the moment the all is played. People get confused by deflections and the like but also by the offside decision depending on where everyone (possibly offside player, 2 defenders) is when the ball is put into motion toward the player who may or may not be offside.

So, like step putting, the assistant referee on the sideline has to simultaneously look at when the ball is played and where all the involved players are at that moment, just like the disc having to leave the step putters hand before foot contacts the ground in front of lie.

Instant replay has proven that those dual points of attention are not always assessed correctly. But, unlike is sometimes the case in disc golf, someone is at least paying attention.

Ulibarri use to step putt years ago and it was very close when you broke it down frame by frame if I remember correctly. He stopped doing it though. Then does Dickerson still do the back foot thing? He was putting with his left foot behind the mini and raising up his front foot. I honestly wouldn't mind a 15 meter circle just to knock some of the questionableness with the step and jump putting. You get outside of 50 feet then do whatever.

I think you're delusional to think the sport isn't going to change and for the better. I simply want to watch excellent courses and elite players play the sport at the highest level. I'm not sure why others are so against positive change.

I used to know these rave kids who had a German Shepherd. Unfortunately, someone gave the dog LSD and broke his brain. The dog would seem normal enough until it became focused on chasing his tail. At that point, the dog became a whirling canine tornado of destruction. It would chase with such energy that it would knock over people, furniture, whatever was in its way. You couldn't stop it, you felt bad for the dog, but all you could really do was just get out of the way. Maybe there's a point to my story? I don't know.

Sadly, yes. Sooner or later, every thread. Playing in bad weather? Need smaller baskets. Best place to eat in Paducah? Needs smaller baskets. How to win the distance in the desert contest? Smaller baskets.

Too many 3-pointers in NBA? Is a smaller basket the answer? No, they're looking at adding a 4-point line.

Disc golf was designed to be a fun game in the park. Not a professional sport. We need a professional sized target.

We need smaller teepads and discs then too.

Just a two foot concrete slab to throw from, along with 25% smaller discs.

Enough with only making baskets smaller.

Time to move past that ancient/backwards school of thought and look to the future.

What does everyone think of stand and deliver? I really like it. Imagine in ball golf if you could tee up your ball from the fairway for a second drive. Ridiculous right? We are basically allowing ourselves to do that by allowing follow through on fairway drives. Subsequent shots should not go as far as the tee shot. It will help tame the insane two shot range of modern pros. I see no reason to avoid it.
