I agree with Dodge that our sport needs more direction to grow, but disagree on how it is to be handled. Im sorry folks golf grew in leaps and bounds when it came on tv and gained huge sponsership. But at that time it was an elitest($$$) sport, or more importantly, the rich promoting a rich hobby= easy growth. I have a hard time watching golf, but the moments to watch are worth it. I agree with Chase, who wants to watch 5 groups of pros almost ace a hole and tap in, over and over. It is worse than Nascar, at least the crash in Nascar is entertaining. The one guy who gets taken out by an "Iron Leaf" and doesn't get his bird is lack luster to say the least. I started to watch the Usdgc and quickly got irritated by poor play. I know of some guys who could compete with the top pros at the Usdgc, but don't attend for personal, financial, or family reasons. Those who I do know that went, they are the only ones I cared to watch. No big expectations for them, but if I am watching Nikko, Avery, or Will, I want to see the best play by the best pros. Screw this banter, I'm gonna enjoy the sport for what it is to me. Pure enjoyment of flight!
Living for flight. One day at a time.
