The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Like most of you I am a big fan of this. I was very excited the first time I logged in and watched the live coverage of the Memorial a few years ago. DiscGolfPlanet.TV has also given us ( repeat..given, free of charge ) live coverage of the GBO, USDGC, Vibram open, Presidents Cup, National Collegiate DG Championship, and Kansas City Wide Open.
They also have archived most of the coverage for you viewing pleasure as well.
While they do ask for donations and have sponsors, the coverage itself remains free to anyone who wants to watch. Me and many,many others appreciate this and show our support.
They recently changed the chat system so you had to be logged in as a Facebook user to make comments, which seems to have helped cut down on some of the downright rude and unsportsmanlike comments, which for me makes watching the coverage more enjoyable.
But... while watching the GBO a few times over the weekend some of the same comments I keep seeing continually pop up ( along with the people who type in all caps and Kant SPK propr ENglish )
I know, I know.. it's still the internet and even without anonymity people will still be people. I'm sure I'm not alone in being frustrated with the continuous comments about "whats wrong" with the coverage. I guess I feel like if your not going to offer solutions then keep your negativity to yourself. JD does a great job with what they have and the support of sponsors as well as volunteers like Rebecca , Crazy John, David Greenwell, The Cameraman, and many others, speaks volumes about how much these people are trying their best and doing a great job!
Anyways, thanks for the great coverage DGPTV! I'll keep trying to help when I can and keep watching as you grow and get better.
Oh.. and Grats to all the winners, and everyone , at the GBO!
