When I got here..I did think the online fighting I saw/read was probably what I would experience at a tournament, so I figured that's not for me. I thought it was stupid to pay good money in these hard times to go out and do what you love doing just to be caught up in a bunch of negativity/drama. Hell I get more drama in my bands then I can handle
After Matts post saying the people who show up, are positive people who love the game and really want to and are probably willing to get involved in growing this sport here I changed my mind - no I'm not asking for a cookie - thank you
I am a total convert today - Lou I joined the PDGA this morning - thanks for the ribbing in an earlier thread, I deserved that one (the rest of 2008 is free) I'm good through 2009. (though I guess I still have to pay my 10.00 penalty for Saturday) - it's all good
We all love DG - so "Can't we all just get along" - I believe some motorist said that as he was getting the crap beat out of him by a few cops on camera.
I have much respect for all those who came before and paved the way - I want to help pave the way for my son and his friends as well.
I'd love to get to know the "Old Guard", hear their stories and learn from their experiences as I hope to be around this sport long enough to someday be looked at by the youngest youths getting into the sport today as one of "their" old guards, who did something positive and continues to do positive things for them and the sport locally.
So whatever the pressing issue is with each person, I just hope we can all step back, take a breath, forget "our" issue and remember only how much we love this cool little sport, come together as a dysfunctional family can sometimes, and figure out a way together to correct what's wrong and move forward together and keep it growing here. For crying out loud...our discs are still sold on the toy isle at Academy..LOL...See, there are some bigger fish to fry and that's the first one in my book that should be addressed
