No. They're just jealous cuz they don't have those shots in the bag. This is about the same as being called a sandbagger when you happen to have a good tourney. Don't listen to them.
you am not a cheater me throw thumbers too. when them call you cheatr because they loose the tournament go away from them with all yur new discs they gave you for winnering.
Just ribbing you....throw all the "me thumbers and tommy's you want" be sure to respect the line of play....if nobody is calling you on stance violations then you're good to go.
I watched dvd of the 2008 Ams. OMG the winners were 5 and 10 strokes ahead of the pack. It just amazed me that at that level there would be that much difference.
You'd be amazed how many tournaments out there are runaway victories.
I thought the objective was to get from the tee to the basket in as few throws as possible. I don't remember the rule that says you can't throw tommy or thumber. Unless they can find that rule somewhere in the fine print I say you're alright.
I wod have to agree maybe they are upset that you beat them. I play with a guy who throws 90% of his shots overhand and he always puts up a good fight, it's definitely not cheating. Do what you do, have fun, just shrug it off
From the rules Q & A

Throwing Styles: What's Legal?

Question: Are there any restrictions on how you throw the disc? For example, can you throw nothing but overhand shots?

Response: No, there are no restrictions on how you throw the disc. You may throw backhand, sidearm, overhand, thumber, or any other way that occurs to you. You can throw it with your foot if that works for you.

The definition of "Throw" in the glossary of the rules describes a throw as a "propulsion" of a disc that changes its position. There are many ways to propel a disc. As long as you use only your body and no artificial devices (see 802.04), you may throw the disc in any manner you like.

technically if you place the disc twixed your butt cheeks...and propel it with flatulence.....well....You might get a standing ovation....and a few "we're not worthy's"
So to sum it up...while it may violate local obscenity ordinances...the Butt Putt is perfectly legal...according to the rules of play.
hahahahaha... this is good. I would definitely be one of those folks shouting "We're not worthy!" ..but a 10 feet away from the flatulence.
just play your game and dont listen to those who cant .
Well, thats why a course designer needs to have a mando or two on the course.... It takes the tommy and thumbers out of play. If the course has no way to force a shot then it is play it as you find it....
you must not know how to throw one then, no mando can stop me ;b. congrats on the win I won my first tourny the same way
