Leagues / Re: The Return of Wandering Wednesday
« Last post by MK on September 13, 2016, 10:23:52 PM »
The wandering Wednesday pdga league will NOT wander Down Under tomorrow evening.  Too much rain, too much rain in the forecast.

Instead we will wander to Swope.  Sign up at 500, cards will roll out then.

Typical OB, outside edge of the rocks, streets and over.

All long tees, including 16 and 13.

$5 for kcfdc members, $6 for nonmembers.  Add a buck for the ace fund.

Dodge Unsanctions Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship

Break from PDGA will allow Bradley Williams, Paul McBeth to take part in the event

SEPTEMBER 13, 2016 BY STEVE HILL IN LIVEWIRE WITH 0 COMMENTS

Disc Golf Pro Tour Director Steve Dodge announced tonight on the SmashboxxTV podcast and on the tour’s website that this weekend’s Pro Tour Championship in Vermont will not be PDGA-sanctioned.

Citing strained relations with the PDGA and Williams’ recent suspension, Dodge said “being a PDGA event is hurting the DGPT Tour Championship.”

“In good conscience, knowing that the goals of the DGPT are to build a professional Pro Tour throughout North America, we cannot continue to pretend to work together with the PDGA,” Dodge said. “The PDGA has consistently failed to communicate, put roadblocks in our way, refused to have discussions, and has suspended Pro Tour players without consulting the Pro Tour or the players.”

Since Williams is only suspended from PDGA-sanctioned events, he will be allowed to play this weekend. Paul McBeth, who recently announced that he would not be playing PDGA non-Major events in protest of the organization’s lack of transparency in disciplinary matters, has not confirmed his plans for the weekend.

Ultiworld Disc Golf will have more on this story as it develops.

Reading the comments of others, indeed opinions both sides.
Looks like diskey "nailed it" too.

~Footnote

Is this his 2nd strike?  It seems so.
Will there be a 3rd strike?   It's up to him, ultimately.
And if so, it wouldn't surprise me, a lifetime ban.

Definitely a point / counter-point to all of this.

I think a big component is if you think BW was improving or keeping on with his own modus operandi.  How you view that topic is how you probably think the suspension is fair or not.  I can see it both ways.

I found this post to be rather interesting.

Dear Paul McBeth,

Here is your explanation:
Since the day BW became a member of the pdga he has received more official complaints to the pdga, from other players, than any other member. He has been caught cheating (pencil whipping), cursing, punching trees, kicking his bag over, kicking tournament baskets over while in play, & now trying to rattle fellow competitors through physical confrontation and intimidation. Not to mention while already on probation. All of this goes against the unwritten gentlemen's code for competitive golf.

It's very disappointing you wouldn't take to time to understand all this before making such a decision. You have these fanboys that are going to just gobble up everything you say and blindly follow your motives. The same FB's are asking why Nikko has never had the same problems and it's because his tantrums just involve him making an ass out of himself and not intentionally trying to rattle other players because he's not on top of his game and he feels it's the only way to now gain a competitive advantage. Nikko's actions haven't warranted players to feel the need to formally complain while BW's have. pdga can't do anything about anyone without a formal complaint.

You have way too much integrity and have gained way to much respect from people in our sport to take a major stand against the definition of the kind of person that is no good for competitive golf. BW's situation is the exact time for the pdga to enforce a ridiculous suspension. He's the exact kind of person that needs to be taught this lesson for all of us. We all have heard horror stories about him or watched a YouTube video of him saying or doing something that would immediately get you punched in the face where I come from, and we all need to know and be aware of what it is to be a competitive golfer. What it truly means to be engaged in gentleman's competition with your fellow golfer. Not to wish them any ill will while hoping your best that day is lucky enough to be a stroke under their best. Our sport is too small for its best and most well known player to boycott over something that was long overdue and easily explained!

I hope the pdga doesn't blink and you are forced to figure all that out on your own or find a new profession. The real reason your fellow players won't end up joining your little boycott isn't because they can't afford to, it's because you are sticking up for the biggest jerk face that our sport has ever seen and no other player would be foolish enough to put their livelihood on the line for BW. While you think you are taking a stand against the power of the pdga your really only fighting for BW. Your fellow players have the foresight to know exactly why the pdga did what they did and that their decision benefits the majority of pdga members. If you truly believe that over the BW ruling, the pdga is just going to start suspending for arbitrary reasons your not thinking clearly. You and your fellow competitors have no reason to worry about being suspended because none of you conduct yourself in a manner befitting of BW.

They suspended him for repeated conduct detrimental to our sport with proof in the form of massive formal complaints.

Since most don't need an explanation because it's easy enough to figure out, theres your explanation, now get back to work, or don't!

Very good counterpoint here.  I suggest reading it.  Again, I don't agree with his 100% either, but good points were made.

There is a lot of little things I have to clarify today before we get the rest of the information out but we are just about there.
