General Banter / Re: Should we pay to have professional disc golfers?
« on: April 07, 2010, 01:49:47 PM »

 would the public notice the difference between full time pro and part time pro? I doubt it.


 But It would be a step in the right direction...

 Look I've been reading, and not really responding, since this thread started and I think there has been some really good points made and some, well lets just say, adding to the problem instead of the solution...

 One really good point was, which has been discussed for a few years to no avail, is having to earn your way into the pro ranks, instead of just paying a higher entry fee. I have been traveling and playing this sport as my primary income for almost 3 full years, Not one year did I make more than 10k in pdga recordable winnings, but I have been able to subsidize my life and expenses. I get limited help from my sponsors, and by limited I mean, they do what they can and I appreciate everything they do, but by no means am I getting ahead.

 I know, this is my decision and I reap the benefits AND shortcomings, but it is time for a better step in the proper direction. We have talked about forming a "Players Union" for the past couple years, but progress is slow.

 I listened on speaker phone, to a conference call with the BOD, and the issues they want to discuss and what they think is important, well let me say this in the best way possible, COMPLETE BS!!!!

 Soon, very soon there will be changes. We already have one "Tour Player" on the BOD, but very soon, we'll have 3, and Sh!T will start getting done!!!!!!

 1 dollar from every entry fee, is that really to much to ask? I look at it like this, Everyone wants to give me a hard time about not paying my $20 and joining the club and paying my extra buck everynight at leagues, but when the year ends and I've played 60-70 leagues, I will have paid into the club the same as 3 members COMBINED...

 This is my way of proving how little one dollar makes in the grand scheme of things makes in the beginning, but how HUGE it will be over time!

 Alot of great thoughts on here, Keep it going guys!

 Thanks for starting this thread Lack Jowe!

"This is too important of a game..."

There are many things that are "too" important: food, shelter, and health are fine examples.  Basketball is not.

Your right, its waaaaay more important than any of those. I eat basketballs, live in a basketball and with the doctors orders, I take 2 basketballs a day

What do you think about $1 from every tournament entry fee, B tier or higher,  go towards a Worlds fund?

Climo, Favre, Jordan, Lowe and Woods are entertainers, until they post their 1 mile running or swimming , times, i refuse to call them athletes.

 How bout if they climb on top of a basket to shoot amateur footage, Does that count?

I guess thats your way of admitting I'm right. Thanks for agreeing.

 I agree that Baylor lost the game because they couldn't get a defensive rebound and Duke was very Opportunistic on the offensive boards.
  I also agree Duke out ranged Baylor at almost 50% from 3 land! But, I do have to fault the Bears for barely shooting 60% from the Charity stripe... Is that what's supposed to win a game...?

 Yet that one call, MUSTA made the difference in the game...I know...... I know, It was a 2 point game at the time, yada-yada-yada, but cooler heads ALWAYS prevail. Example...

 Duke plays the toughest defense in the country AND plays like a TEAM!!! Recipe for success!!!

 Next..............

  Lets now talk about how we put a WOOPIN on West Vagina...Wanna?????????

 Maybe we could talk about Huggy bear making out with De'Sean in the paint, or expanding the field to 96 teams

 Anything is better than Myopic KU fan trying to bring everyone else into their misery...

KU couldn't win if the refs were helping them the way they played.

I'm just saying that the game Duke played against Baylor should have been alot closer at the end. Those refs made sure there was plenty of spread. I mean c'mon man. This is too important of a game to T up someone instead of telling both teams to calm down or else they'd get a T! If you asked me both teams shoulda got a T if your gonna handem out. The Duke player clearley was throwing elbows erratically and then jawing and smiling. The Baylor player only reacted to what the Duke player did. It shoulda been worse to deserve a T!
F-Duke!!!!!!!

I love it... In the words of Smitty, "Come play a C teir, get drunk and sleep in to wake up in time for the final round and maybe try and creep into the putting competition and Maybe, just maybe, Get my named called for the skins"...

 How cool would that be?
