Default Chucker Definition

I've tried searching the forums, but I can't find the definition for what a "chucker" is. What is a chucker? Is it someone who throws recklessly?

Also, it would be nice if the newbie forums had a definitions page.

Thanks!

A "chucker" is generally a very casual player.

Generally the term carries a negative connotation as it's often used to refer to players who have little regard for general etiquette.

I always thought that it was just another term to denote plastic throwers, but on here it has come to mean a casual thrower who drinks heavily, litters, is loud and obnoxious, and will not let you play through, but will throw at you.

I've always used the term to refer to anyone who plays with one maybe two discs, no bag, and little to no regard for rules/etiquette. He's the type who couldn't tell you the brand/mold of the disc he's throwing unless it's stamped on it, and even then he has to look at it before he tells you...every time. Also, the type of player who would never find themselves on a forum like this. So if you're here, congrats, you're not a chucker.

When you see a group of 10-15 people in one big group. One throws, they run to their disc and the others people keep throwing on them until the hole is done

Chuckers are also known around here as the "One Disc Wonders" of the park. They're usually in opacks of 5+, are loud and obnoxious, play with only one disc, maybe two, and have little to no disregard for other players or park occupants.
