The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Read my discussion on a letter I found from 1980 between Doug Newland and Ed Headrick. (it is listed on my page under my discussions) This seems to be the same discussion then as it is now. Most people are for themselves and do not see the greater picture. Some things have not changed in 28 years according to the 1980 letter. It comes down to the fact that we are individuals, and most people do not want to give but only take. There are leaders, followers, givers, and takers. Some people will step up while others will stand by and watch the work being done. I have found out he hard way that you can only depend on the few, not the masses. If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself.
As far as sponsors go, Ed had the same problems. Bad behavior by the players held back sponsors. I see alot of that today as well. In the end, we have done this to ourselves. Not all of us. Because there are those of us that would give our throwing arm to see the sport advance to a level we can only imagine. Respectfully submitted.
