Title: EMAC signed Pink Force on EBAY
Post by: Disciple on October 08, 2012, 01:54:21 PM
Someone found EMAC's disc that he lost during the USDG Championship tournament over the weekend and is now selliing it to the highest bidder.

Wow, good call ebayer! does Emac sign all of his discs on the top?

I would bet that its a legit sale, why else would you put all the information down about it being E-Mac and being in Roc-Hill?

Seems awful bawdy to do it like this unless you were confident that it was ok to sell.....

On Face Book EMac is saying this guy made no attempt to return it to him after fishing it out of the water and he would like to have it back. He's not happy about this sale.

This is far from legit. This is the same guy who was arrested this week for taking discs from the lake and selling them on Ebay.

It's just a disc, right?

I guess if I wanted my disc back badly enough, I'd make sure to get it out of that lake before someone else did. When a disc is lost, you can hope it's returned to you, but you should not expect it. Like Slim Neal says, don't marry your discs, for they will leave you!

YIkes.

That is horrendous especially the luck E-Mac has had this year with discs being taken.

The nerve.  Can you imagine someone taking Mickelson's putter and putting it on E-bay because the caddy forgot to get it?

Dang,

I was going to go and try to buy it for him, and the sale ended.  Did it end early?  I just may not have paid attention to the time of it either.

He lost it during a tournament and can not just "go get it". Then the guy in questions went in at night with scuba gear illegally to retrieve discs.

It's not serious business, don't be all HURRR and shit.

I've seen several discs for sale on eBay recently from Rock Hill. Presumably the same guy? One of those discs was (is?) a 25th annual KCWO roc...

more power to those who retrieve discs. when you lose a disc boo hoo and it's over. finders keepers. it is cool to get the occaisional returned disc. the real douche bags are the people who spend too much for second hand plastic that was thrown by a notable player! the notable players really should be flattered that their plastic is being promoted on sites such as ebay. i highly doubt emac misses any of his old discs or is 'pissed' that a resourceful entrpreneur is making the game we all play and love more visible.

The only issue I see is the scuba diver not having permission to retrieve the discs. Other than that.. If you don't make it over the water, sucks to be you. This coming from a guy who has lost more than I own....and I own many. The Mickelson comparison is silly to say the least..

From EMac on FB:

"Attention Disc Golfers! DO NOT BUY THIS DISC! This is NOT a Signature disc from me, it's a Force I lost on hole 17 at the USDGC this past week. I guess it's true, people don't return discs anymore, they find them and sell on eBay...Wow!"

So, I guess you could say he is a bit pissed about it. I'm on the fence about it personally. I mean, if you lost it and didn't get it back before the end of the tourney by some nice person turning it in to lost and found then had to take off to another state I would think the expectation of getting it back would be pretty low. But for this guy to dive into a body of water on private property without permission before the baskets were even cold from the tourney shows an opportunistic entrepreneurial spirit that is unethical at best. Not to mention he was trespassing. Sounds like he didn't even give the staff time to retrieve and return them as a courtesy to the players. Disc golfers aren't rich, yet. Multiply $15-$20 losses at tournaments can add up over time. But the quote from Slim Jim Neal is valid, "Don't marry your discs, for they will leave you.".

I had an encounter with a local disc golfer in Sedalia this afternoon that fell right into this category. We had a tourney here Saturday so I went out today to see if any of the floaters that were left behind were still there. When I got to the pond another guy had just left with some discs he fished out. I chased him down to let him know that I knew some of the people that owned the discs and I had told them I would try to fish them out and get them back to them. This guy, standing there with the discs in his hand, refused. He said he went in there in that disgusting mud and murky water and got them and he felt he had a right to them now, even though they had clearly visible names and phone numbers on them. He offered to sell them to me. Things got testy then I realized he had a point, I've been in that pond and it's pretty nasty mud.  I let it go and he took off with at least three discs I know the owners of and I could do nothing about it.

His point was that if you had it floating out there and left without finding a way to go out and retrieve it that you were giving up your ownership.

We've had a group of dudes swimming in the pond in Olathe getting discs and selling them to play-it-again sports. Once, last Summer one of our home boys(Bryan C.) was playin a round and all three of the dudes were in the water, while their found stack of plasic was on the shore. He looked thru the stack before they could get to shore, and he snatched several that belonged to some of our posse and walked away, much to theor dismay. Finders-keepers.  ;D

If you give up on, or walk away.. then the person that finds that disc has no obligation to return it in my opinion.. sure, its a nice thing to do but entirely up to the person that has found or fished it out..

That's a difficult concept to explain to some of these liberal commies around here, but that's the way it be!

I just want to know what happened to the honest part of this game? It's not your disc. I guess I was brought up different though, taught not to steal from others.

Guess it's just the Ohio-ian in me  8)

Wait, what? Fred isn't saying he doesn't return discs he finds, dude. In fact, I don't recall anyone saying anything of that nature in this thread.

Jack, I know that you have, and appreciate each of the disc's that you have returned to me and anyone else for that matter. When I walk away and decide that I have lost a disc though, I hold no one to some ethical or moral obligation to seek me out and return it. That goes for anyone....jews, gentiles, samarians, or even the most Godlike people....OHIO-ans

Right.  I tend to give back now where I can, unless it is something that I am throwing......  I too have lost enough plastic over the years, and many times its just from stupidity.  Leaving a disc after you throw it.  So walking away it is.  I have gotten discs back though from California and Georgia over the years, so it is pretty cool when they return.  I even got a mini back that I left in San Diego about 7 years ago this past year......I got my lighter back from Feldberg at Worlds this year that he took from me at the Wide Open....so it is good to put your name on things, some people will return them!
