The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

This may be obvious to alot of people,but the growth,prosperity and eventual acceptance of any new sport depends on one thing...How it televises. Our sport in video form looks at best like the video taken by the best man at a cousins second marriage. The asthetic just isnt there, and as a result, WE are the only people watching. Think about it...If your watching monday night football, and farve drops back to throw his third interception of the quarter( Mad that he left!!!) and the camera struggles and fails at focusing on the errant pass, do you think we would watch. No! Think of all newly accepted sports..be it snow boarding,skateboarding or any of the"X" sports. they share in common one thing..they transport the viewer into the action. Can you imagine if someone who hasnt played is flipping thru the channels, comes upon nationals on ESPN OCHO, and sees the torque the champ puts on the driver off the tee? If they could see that our game is a game of strategy and placement that requires the same amount of skill and execusion as a any sport you can think of. Its never been a matter of enough people getting out to the course. I dont know many that have tried a round, hit a lucky s-curve shot and had that momment of,"wow...thats why they dig it!!" I realize that this type of broadcast and taping is extremely expensive but it is THE crucial step. It is the missing link. It would result in our sport becoming a olympic possibility rather than the recreational panacia it is for most of us. I truely adore disc golf...I get at least two people out every season, I know most of you do as well...but this would be the ticket to a wider more comprehensive acceptance and embrace of this sport than all of us combined and more importantly it would result in true sponsorship. There is a reason that pepsi passed...Who watches? Eyes mean dollars to people with the flow needed to launch us off the wood chips, onto concrete tees...everywhere..
