Maybe you don't see that because that's not a point I was trying to make

people keep saying "THERE ARE NO SPOILERS IN SPORTS" as if all sports are "equal" in every way. they're not.

do you get it now?

Yes. I should have spell checked myself. It does one's argument no good if no one can research said argument. Sorry, all.

I fulfill the stereotype that programmers are bad at spelling.

Post round coverage. Doesn't exist for other sports as it exists in disc golf. Why? Because the live product in other sports is better than our post round heavily edited coverage.

want me to keep going?
Actually most major sports have post production coverage now. Almost all the major sports have a shortened version for paying customers of their PPV service.

The break between GMC and USDGC is clearly too long this year. We've already gotten to the pointless back-and-forth on spoilers for USDGC, and the event is still basically a week away!

Can't we all just take a break and argue about something else? Maybe drop into the par thread and get riled up? Or form strong opinions on whether Ricky peaked before or after switching to Innova?

That's certainly an argument the PDGA lawyers could make if there was a dispute over video-recording someone's likeness. It may or may not work. It could be fixed easily by explicit/more clear language. Also, since the PDGA is the one drafting the rules, in a court of law, they will be construed in the most favorable way for the player (since the player is the one having to abide by the contract of adhesion).

Regardless, industry standard is to use something that specifically gives permission for video images. Here's a simple explanation from rocketlawyer.

As I mentioned, Social Media is part of my job, so it's sort of impossible for me to avoid. I do try to stay away from the results, but it's difficult when it surprises you in your feed. Like I said, I'll likely be unfollowing certain pages who do this.

If you are comparing amber alerts, to Disc Golf results... We're having a different conversation here bud. Amber alert is something people NEED to know for the safety of human lives.
When it come to something like disc golf, and something we're already following, and you're much more likely to get me to watch your video if you give me just enough info for me to want to watch it, without giving it all away so I have no reason to watch it.
It's like advertising a movie while giving away the ending... Why the hell would I want to watch that?
