    Nice! I'm really hoping to be able to play some of those courses (Idlewild, Toboggan, etc.) in the midwest at some point in the next few years after watching so much coverage of those iconic holes. 

    Well if you ever make it happen I’d be happy to tag along.

  2. I finally played Idlewild in Kentucky, and the first hole is an iconic par 4, 635 feet slightly downhill.  I’m proud to say with two of my longest throws I was able to put it inside circle 1 for a birdie.  Knowing Kevin Jones did it in 1 throw is pretty humbling.  Eagles 700 foot monster isn’t helping.  🤣🤣

    Have you guys seen the beach volleyball "sky ball" serve? It's completely ridiculous and I love it so much.

    Yeah, but it’s really only effective when the sun is in your opponent’s eyes or really windy.  Since this was indoors, I think he was just showing off.

     

     

    which makes me love it more

    Two questions from the gallery?

    1) Could Conrad see the target (hole?) from where he threw? Was it a completely blind shot? I mean, I'm sure he had a course layout and a general reckoning of where the frisbee needed to go, but still.

    2) That was definitely a dog leg, correct? Again, blind shot?

    3) How can the general public reckon the level of difficulty of Conrad's shot? Is that the kind of thing that a bunch of frisbee pros could line up all day attempting, and it would be considered a miracle if it went in once out of a couple thousand throws? Harder or easier than a full-court basketball shot?

     

    EDIT: Yes, I see that it's actually three questions :bag:

    1) he probably only had to walk about 30 feet to his left to see the basket.  The trees on his right blocked his natural path/throw to the basket.  It wasn’t necessarily a blind shot but it was obstructed, forcing him to throw left and make the disc go against its nature.

    2). Yes.  His second shot ideally would have been further left in the fairway giving him a straight line look at the basket.  Obviously it worked out OK for him.

    3) A full court buzzer beater is a good analogy.  I would liken it to holing out from 150 for an eagle to beat (edit: Tie) Tiger who is 2 feet from the pin for birdie.

  5. Only disapprove because I associate the anthem, right or wrong I suppose, with the military and the kneeling was because of treatment by the police.  Seemed like walking out of history class because you were mad at your math teacher.   And even then disapprove means “find it odd” more so than “makes me mad”.

  6. Is anyone conflicted like me?  I feel like these guys should win much more prize money, but at the same time I’m afraid what it would do to the sport.  Could you imagine competitors celebrating so joyously like that if big money was on the line?  I love that about disc golf right now.

    I should correct this- it APPEARS bad but we don’t know if it was an accident. Doesn’t sound like it but we don’t know. 

    Multiple outlets reporting driver *and* victims are members of the local Gay Men’s Chorus.  This was an accident.  Not helpful for you leap to conclusions and assume the worst.

    Assistant coach forum but...

    You take deals like this every time because OBJ (don't fool yourself though, your WRs are only okay) is a guy that if he returns to form either helps you win, or is someone you may be able to trade away and get a future first for later in the season.

    Good assets are usable in ways other than as a weekly starter.

    You’re right.  My bad.

    I think he's going to be a massive value pick.  FBG has him at WR15.  And I'm not saying that's bad/wrong/egregious.  But he was going as WR6 this time last year.  His 12 game stats extrapolated out come out to 86 Receptions, 1120 yards and 9 TD.  In PPR formats, that would have been WR11.  Just behind Theilen and just ahead of Evans.  

    I think he's a guy VERY likely to finish as a WR1 that you'll get as a WR2.

    I guess I’m more worried about his week to week consistency than I am about his final totals.  He might end up a WR1, but will he be a guy you start without second guessing a little?
