Brad Williams' side of it.

Again, I'm not defending BW. I don't care for him from the accounts I've read, but I don't hate him either.

However, I do believe 18 months is too long and that there should be more transparency in the event, the investigation, and how the punishment was determined.

When did a Buzzz GT come out?  How does it fly/compare in the Buzzz world?

In the link that ekolk posted, look at the bottom right meme.

So check-in is in the morning, so this not a flex start event, right? Normal shotgun, just 1 round.

Correct  Normal shotgun start for 1 round.  No flex start.

Check in is from 8:45 - 9:30.  Player meeting at 9:30.  Tee off approximately 15 minutes after player meeting is over, whenever that is.

The line with my results seems to have been completely deleted. 
 
Never mind, found it.

Along with your avatar.  Except that it hasn't been found yet.

When you go to the first link you must then follow the link within the text and you will hear a breakdown about what happened in a podcast interview.

Starts at about 17:30 or so.

Gives a broad explanation without specific details beyond a shoulder bump and heated words.  If that is the case, yes, he should be suspended because he was on probation.  18 months is pretty stiff.

Repeat offender. 'nough said.

I politely disagree with you.  Repeat offence depends on what the offence was. 

If I was ticketed for speeding a second time at 10 mph over, that would not produce a 18 month driver suspension.  Second DUI in 12 months, yeah, 18 months is reasonable.  Second vehicular manslaughter in 12 months, 18 months is not long enough.

This tournament will have two pools. Each pool plays one round of 18 holes.

First Pool: Original Long 18 holes.

Original 18 set in the maximum length possible which will include new pin placements on 3-4 holes that are even longer. Approximately 11,500 feet, par 74. Divisions for this pool:

ALL ADVANCED ($20 Player pack disc and additional payout)
ALL INTERMEDIATE ($20 Player pack disc and additional payout)
ALL RECREATIONAL ($15 Player pack only - premium Innova disc)

"There is no 'Example' made here unless we are told what the punishment is pertaining to. Lesson not learned."

For this punishment to have any affect on future events we, the players, need to know exactly why this punishment was meted out.

This, this, this.

I'm not a BW fan or hater.  I don't want to play a round with him but I don't wish ill will towards him either.  But I think when a prominent player of this caliber is suspended for this long - which is really freaking long - some sort of explanation should be provided regardless of how glossed over it may be.

Thanks Tom.  I'm primarily wondering if it will be like front 9 at Cliff.  My back is feeling a lot better, I would prefer to not re-aggravate it again, but really, really want to play after missing last weekend.
