The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I've been playing dg for about 5 weeks. My average drive is 200 feet. I do not care if I have a noodle arm, but what I don't need is disc golf keyboard elitists spouting off about "noodle arms with their Katanas and Grooves". Show some support.
On the course do you see somone learning and say "fuckin' noob, learn how to throw an Ape, stop throwin' that Nuke you fucking bum"? No. Nine times out of ten an experienced dg'er doesn't care, he's more than willing to give tips, and he could not be a nicer guy.
But behind the keyboard some of you guys are just complete elitist pricks. You probably exaggerate your drive distance, tell fake stories about aces you've never made. I don't know if these things are true, but the way you act certainly leaves a person with any semblance of rationality to believe so.
Some of you behave as if you don't want this game to grow. Like being above the "noobs" gives you some kind of status. Well, it doesn't. Your just a disc golfer. Like me, the 5 week novice with the 200 ft drive. We both love the same thing, but your need to feel some kind of false superiority is preventing you from identifying with me because of the anonymity offered by the internet.
Treat us newcomers and novices the way you would have wanted to be treated when you were starting out. I highly doubt most professionals would have this negative attitude towards new players, because they love the sport enough to want to see it grow. You should too.
Moral: Don't be dicks, give us noobs some tips.
