I believe we played one in emporia?  Maybe the monkey island?  Chill pill dude. I thought the game was 90% mental.  And yeah, I think anything over 900 is advanced

Wouldn't it be better if you just went out and tried to beat the course instead of worrying about other people's ratings? 

Haters gonna hate, he throws too far, his rating is too high, etc; in my eyes, that means you already think you're going to lose to him.  And you're the one talking about testing someone's mental game?
Very well said.

I'm interested in moving down to Rec from Advanced.  Is there any way the rarely seen Novice division might open up?

I'm not sure which would be worse, Jeff O trying to get in your head or Palmer talking about pool halls and craft beer all round.  ;D

I have never played advanced or won an intermediate tournament... don't understand why it's such a big deal.

Funny also how the instigator of this discussion has won an intermediate tournament this year.  And YET, is still playing intermediate.  Talk about a general rule of thumb.  In Tank's words " MOVE UP "

I can't wait to see all you at the tourney.  Hopefully Tank will be there to tell me what to do.  Anyone who knows me, knows I don't get in anyone's head.  But since the sh$t talk is so good, maybe we could make a little wager?

Look man, I was just defending my brother on a comment that made no sense.  I should've just let it go, but until he wins an intermediate tournament, I don't see any reason why he needs to move up if he doesn't feel comfortable doing so - just my opinion.  The PDGA doens't even recommend that a player move to advanced until 935.  J has stayed out of the discussion, so I commend him for that.  He made his defense and left it at that.  I'm just pointing out the facts; but evidently I get a little too defensive at times on this forum.

I'm not sure who you're pointing the wager at, but feel free to throw it my way if you'd like.

If you do wager before the round, at least let me get it on video :)

Ha, in all honesty I'd just like to drop it.  I may have misinterpreted Jeff's original post.  I wasn't trying to instigate an argument, I was simply making a defense to a comment I didn't agree with.  My bad.

Since this is a sanctioned tournament Kevin, your 945 rating disqualifies you from anything but Adv, sorry.  :P

Cool.  $20 and I want 10 strokes. I'd fight you, Ian but my Mom won't let me hit a guy with glasses

His original comment was uncalled for if he didn't want a reaction.  And I'm thinking he did.

Again, if your rating allows it, who cares that division he plays in?  I look forward to competing against Jacob and I hope we have a card together; it'll be fun!

Seriously, all the bagger talk is funny when we're just giving each other a hard time, but there are some players (I don't know if Jeff is included) who really take it seriously.  But remember, Jacob's rating (and the PDGA's guidelines for that matter) doesn't support your opinions Jeff.

So are you playing Pro Masters now General?  Maybe even Open?  With your answer, it would seem like playing in a protected division is the same as "playing down"?
