Alternative option: Recruit 10 or 12 folks to run disinformation campaigns on this sub. Nothing actually incorrect -- just misleading. "Congratulations to Austin Hannum on his performance during the final round of the 2022 LVC." See? Everyone will think he won, when actually he just did a really solid job of walking around with Catrina during ___her___ final round.


HashBars

No one would ever believe that clown won.

Eh nobody is gonna believe Hannum won a pro tour event

LiberContrarion

If you're interested, follow-up on what these folks have posted. Little Mr. Feelings Hurtsobad calling him a bigot isn't an accurate criticism. He's not my favorite for plenty of reasons, but I'm so damned tired of wholesale character assassination for wrongthink.


_Feagans

I think it’s hilarious you got downvoted for wanting to be educated on the matter


dosemayer

Tweets about transgender disc golfers. And there’s probably more, but that’s the most recent thing I’ve seen him receive backlash for.


Opening_Way9289

Seriously! I was slow scrolling Reddit all day, and if I saw r/discgolf was the next post coming up, I'd scroll real fast past it. Thanks for the vague titles blurred images!


delux561

Same!


Javontoews

Maybe don't browse a disc golf subreddit if you don't want spoilers about disc golf?


TheNotoriousBBEG

It shows up in home


Javontoews

If only there was some sort of button you could use that would allow you to unsubscribe.


TheNotoriousBBEG

Feel free to hit it


treesntreesntrees

There’s literally a rule in the sub about no spoilers for 24 hours. It takes zero effort to follow.


mellowyfellowy

Do you want to show us where the internet hurt you?


VilleAroo

Amen, I was going to start a new thread thanking everyone for far fewer spoilers for LVC, it's much appreciated for those of us who can't catch things live.


CatAteMyBread

Sunday is my Magic the Gathering day, aka hang with the boys for multiple hours decompressing in preparation for the week. I never can watch the final round live. When I get home I have to prep for the work week, and when I’m done I’m too tired to watch the live commentary if the playbacks are on YouTube, so I wait for Jomez. I know it really rustles some Jimmies for some reason, but I appreciate this sub’s spoiler policy. I don’t come here when I have to wait to watch, but sometimes it comes up on my home feed. Would’ve survived this weekend but a coworker messaged me before the round was up today lmao can’t win them all


Ozymandias1333

Ah a fellow scholar and gentleman. I’ve been wondering for a while now how much overlap there was with disc golfers and MTG Players. I hope some day to be able to trade discs for cards sun vice versa haha


InternetDad

🙋‍♂️ 5 of us here!


pokerstar2345

Sure you could, you could just not play magic the gathering


CatAteMyBread

It’s the one time I get to see these people, I’m not gonna miss it to post to watch something I could watch for free the next day


mellowyfellowy

You don’t need to justify your actions to this buffoon, just sayin


CatAteMyBread

You right, just woke up a little hot today apparently lol


dtorre

Yes! I didn't watch the final round until this afternoon! But I saw a few posts throughout the day!


jmbelczy

Instagram will be my downfall this year. Literally within minutes half of the people I follow post the results and my dumb human brain openers it even when I tell myself I can’t yet and the first image up is always a spoiler.


thiccclol

This is the first tournament in long time where I still haven't seen the final round and it hasn't been spoiled for me (yet)


jdfhe

garrett gurthie wins


thiccclol

Thank you friend.


RogueIronDGBrian

I truly appreciate this so much. Often, I don't have the time to watch live. I didn't see a single spoiler for Vegas and it made the final Jomez round that much better.


jakemg

I didn’t get to watch the final rounds until yesterday and nothing was spoiled for me in this sub. So super appreciated.


CWSfan16

Unpopular Opinion... If you don't want social media to spoil live sports, stay off social media.


timvri

The problem is that most people don't watch disc golf live. They watch post production like Jomez at their leisure once it's released.


CWSfan16

So then you are going to punish the people that watch live? It is your choice to wait the extra day for the post production. You don't even have to pay for the DGN to follow along. There is Udisc Live as well as the final round is steamed live on YouTube.


Vibroverbb

You aren't being "punished." You literally still get to watch it live.


CWSfan16

But you can't talk about it online?


SirBellwater

You can, just tag it with spoilers...


hanginwithfred

This may shock you, but people managed to survive without discussing things online for literal centuries. Heck, at one point, people who couldn’t attend a sporting event in person had to wait until the next days’ newspaper to even find out what happened! And imagine how rough they had it before the printing press was invented…


delux561

I still want to see my other news and media though. I can't interact with anybody on Facebook, see any pictures on Instagram or scroll Reddit? If I could block just this sub for a day I would. But saying stay off social media for a day is not really possible for most people these days. Also it takes literally 1 click to hide a post that someone is already spending time making.


CWSfan16

I feel like your point is moot. What you are asking is trying to watch ESPN the day after the Super Bowl to get the score off a basketball game, but not wanting them to spoil who won the Super Bowl. There is no spoilers in live sports.


hanginwithfred

The Super Bowl is a massive sporting event watched by millions. This is a disc golf tournament where a majority of the audience watches it the next day on a post-produced YouTube channel. You’re comparing apples and oranges.


ObiwanaTokie

Maybe spoilers aside you should look at the bigger problem you just pointed out that you literally can’t stay off your phone for a single day. That’s a major red flag my dude. It’s everyone’s life though so live it however you deem healthy and necessary


delux561

Ah yes, thanks internet stranger who has never met me. Your advice is truly needed


Lovemesomediscgolf

but god forbid people have self control.


evilcheesypoof

I don’t think it’s an unpopular opinion. I agree with you. The only reason some disc golfers have this mindset is because it used to only be next day coverage. Most other sports are live too and nobody worries about spoilers.


TreeEyedRaven

Currently at 1043 upvotes and it’s rule #5 of the sub. It feels like there’s 15 people who are just trying to farm karma or internet clout and want to post spoilers then gaslight people into saying it’s their fault, when it’s literally a rule of the sub. It’s a few squeaky wheels who bitch, but this is one of the highest upvotes posts this week.


evilcheesypoof

I guess I meant it’s not an unpopular opinion in sports, but disc golfers have a unique mindset because they’re used to next day coverage. It’s going to take a few years but that mindset will most likely change like other live sports that don’t care about spoilers.


TreeEyedRaven

You are missing the point entirely. There’s a few people who feel entitled to not follow the rules of this sub then blame the people who do as being whiners or bitching. I pointed out that this post gets the 5-6th most upvotes this month and your entire reply is backtracking and shifting the blame. It’s not disc golfers, it’s not social media, it’s not that people post spoilers, it’s that in this particular community there is a rule that is no spoilers or spoilers in titles for 24 hours after an event. Regardless of disc golf, sports, or anything else, it’s the rule of the sub, and there’s a very small select group of people, as seen by the huge amount upvotes vs people saying to get over it, who think rules don’t apply to them and anyone who does is a whiner/baby/etc. i can’t find a reason why, knowing they rules of the sub, that you would want to rush to post on this sub.


evilcheesypoof

I get that it’s a rule of the sub, and I’m not condoning breaking the rules of the sub. I’m just saying it’s a mindset that I think will eventually change as live becomes the more primary way to watch, and I could see the rules changing in the future. As someone who’s always followed live sports I just think the idea of spoilers in sports is kind of silly but it’s just a unique situation that disc golf has.


Marty_P

For real. It doesn’t bother me if something gets spoiled. I got onto Instagram yesterday before I finished watching the tourney and Drew Gibsons post was the first one in my feed. That’s all my fault. Can’t blame other people for “spoiling” the end when it’s easy to avoid spoilers.


TrainLord

Seriously impressed. I didn't even know who was on lead card or anything.


delpreston27

Adding a spoiler warning takes almost zero effort and hurts no ones enjoyment of a tournament. Literally the only thing a spoiler warning does is preserve another member of the disc golf community's enjoyment of the tournament. If you've already seen the coverage or have checked udisc cool, good for you, here's your gold star. Not everyone has the privilege to be able to sit on their lazy ass in front of a computer all Sunday afternoon, some people have jobs or families or friends that love them (I know this concept may be foreign to a lot of disc golf reddit).


jumboparticle

Wow, You started out making solid, agreeable points about spoilers and then descended into judgmental bullshit about "lazy ass disc golfers. You think the rest of us revolve around your time frame? Somebody that busts there ass 6 days a week is lazy for watching tv on Sunday? That's not a privilege, it's earned.


delpreston27

Take it a little less serious friend.


jumboparticle

take criticism for your words or choose them better pal.


evilcheesypoof

Wow how dare disc golfers watch disc golf on a Sunday afternoon, how lazy of them 🙄


delpreston27

It's called hyperbole.

FlowComprehensive390

That's prime playing time, I got two rounds in.


InternetDad

Let's not be quick to forget about an international audience, though.


pokerstar2345

Imagine telling that to someone about literally every other sporting event. They would laugh in your face. You want disc golf to grow or not? You can’t have it both ways. You tell this to any sports fan of any other sport, and they would look at you like you are a moron.


Lardey

Watching DG from Finland means live shows start at night, post production hits YT the next day 18.00 or so. Which do you think im watching? :)


pokerstar2345

Well yeah man, but you shouldn’t be worried about spoilers then either. Plus if it was really that big of a deal to you, you would either watch it live, or just make sure it wasn’t spoiled, by taking responsibility for your own actions, and not getting mad at a bunch of people for talking about disc golf on a disc golf sub Reddit


Lardey

Spoilerproofing a title doesn't stop anyone from talking about disc golf. But I still wanna be able to check reddit to read about anything else, like whatever our neighbour vlad is upto with nukes as an example. I dont look at instagram because I know all kinds of sources will spoil the result as they should be able to cheer the winner. Im really confused why you are on a such crusade about this.


AbsurdOwl

In any other sport, the expectation is not that most people will watch post-produced coverage. If I want to watch my football team play, that's 3 hours on a Saturday morning. If I want to watch LVC live, that's 15 hours of my weekend, vs 6 and each round is delayed by 1 day. Most sports don't take so incredibly long to watch live.


pokerstar2345

Dude you don’t have to watch like that. Most people don’t. Most people just have it playing in the background as they get on with their lives, so they know what happened when it actually happens. Hardly anybody is parked on their couch for 20 hours over 4 days, watching every single shot. People like myself just have it playing in the background at work, or when I’m driving, or doing house chores. Fuck I even just let the audio run when I’m playing disc golf. When I can’t watch DGN I’ll check the scores on UDisc. The point is, you can’t spoil anything, there’s no such thing as spoiling stuff. It’s not the live viewers responsibility to not talk about disc golf in a disc golf sub Reddit.


AbsurdOwl

Have you considered that not everyone watches disc golf the same way? I like to be fully engaged in watching it, and I'd rather not watch it at all that have it on in the background. The whole reason I'm watching at all is to see cool shots, and watch people throw discs. Having it on and not paying attention completely defeats the point for me. In a sport where the expectation is that many, many people watch post produced coverage, yes, you absolutely can spoil things. The post produced consumers are not some minority, they're likely a majority of viewers. In a subreddit with an explicit rule about spoilers, and where there are threads available for live discussion, yeah, it kind of is the responsibility of live viewers to follow the rules and respect that not everyone follows the sport the same way. It's really not that hard to not be a dick about it. Discuss it all you want in the live threads, which are specifically for that purpose, and let the rest of us enjoy the sport our way. Or go start your own sub without a spoiler rule, that's cool too.


pokerstar2345

Nobody is forcing you to come into a disc golf sub Reddit man. If I didn’t want to know what happened in a disc golf tournament, I sure as hell wouldn’t be surfing a disc golf sub Reddit. I don’t give a shit how you or anybody else likes to consume your disc golf. All I’m saying is it’s not my responsibility to appease your entitled thinking mind. This isn’t like you telling me not to shout out the winner of a match when we are hanging out together. Or telling me not to text you how the movie ended. This is you making a conscience decision to go to a disc golf sub Reddit when you know there’s a tournament going on, that you don’t want to know the results of. And then expecting everyone else to shut up about it because you feel entitled to have everyone change the rules of the sub for you. It’s comical how privileged you think you deserve to be. When all you had to fucking do is take responsibility for your own wishes, and stay the fuck off of a disc golf sub Reddit during tournament time.


AbsurdOwl

I'm not suggesting it's right or wrong, I'm just pointing out that there's a rule about this, and you're acting pretty entitled yourself to suggest that it's some kind of God given right to violate that rule, just because you can't be responsible enough to stick to the dedicated thread. If the rule about spoilers didn't exist, then yeah, I'd just stay off reddit for the weekend. Because that rule does exist, I expect to be able to browse spoiler free. You can disagree all you want with the rule, but it's there. Attacking all the people who appreciate the rule and enjoy the benefits of getting to watch post produced coverage without knowing what's going to happen just makes you look like the entitled jerk. Ultimately, some people want to watch the PP coverage without spoilers, and some people want to watch it live and discuss it. Somehow, other people wanting what they want makes them spoiled, or entitled, or babies, but you wanting what you want is reasonable? Sure, I guess.


akkkschually

Can you surf Reddit at your job?


treesntreesntrees

Big difference between scrolling reddit for five minutes and watching an hour and a half of youtube.


akkkschually

A huge difference. Seems quite easy to simply stay off reddit, since it's just 5 minutes.


AbsurdOwl

Yeah, let's tell people to stay off reddit when they have 5 minutes to themselves, instead of being reasonable and taking 4 seconds to spoiler tag a post. Great point! /s


CJ22xxKinvara

Weird point


OMFGALOBSTER

I literally logged on to say this same thing…well it was more to complain about the bozo that ruined LVC for me…such a freaking epic round I can’t really be that mad either way. Lesson learned for me though.


pushthestartbutton

>!Agreed. I can't go a couple days without crappy disc golf memes and strangers' bag dumps.!<


GoaliePro6

Since I can’t afford to pay for DGN the more spoiler tags the better


lopposse

The final round is free on YouTube.


PoopLion

So what? Would it kill you not to post a spoiler?


doktarr

It kind of blows my mind that there are people in this sub who are so aggressive about their prerogative to spoil results for people. Like, OK dude, you're allowed, but why is it so important to you to ruin someone else's enjoyment of Jomez coverage? I don't understand.


Brocktoberfest

Everyone wants to grow the sport. That means growth of live coverage. That means people talking openly about said coverage. The first time I had a tournament finish spoiled for me, I was bummed, but that is the price to move this sport forward.


doktarr

It is not **remotely** difficult to use non-spoiler titles for reddit posts for a day and change after an event ends. It is also not **remotely** counterproductive to the growth of the sport to do so. I am baffled that anyone would even attempt to argue that it is. In fact, people often click on links precisely because the titles are ambiguous and they want to find things out. It's called clickbait. "What an amazing finish in Las Vegas" is not, in *any* sense, worse for the growth of the sport than "Congratulations to Drew".


Brocktoberfest

If the sport is going to grow in any significant way, then a Reddit post is going to be the least of your worries when it comes to spoilers. Post-produced coverage is also going to be a thing of the past as soon as there is a TV deal or DGN expands their capabilities. Again, I love post-produced coverage and I know it's a bummer when it's spoiled, but that is the future.


doktarr

FWIW for anything short of a NFL playoff game/NBA playoff series finale, I am generally able to avoid spoilers for a day. I can watch youtube highlights of major sports events the next day, and the only thing I have to worry about is getting the results spoiled in a title. Hm... sounds familiar. As far as the shelf life of post-produced coverage, it's hard to say how long it lasts. Golf is just a very slow sport to watch live, with tons of down time built in. The only way to avoid down time is to bounce between cards, which works on some level but makes for inherently disjointed coverage. Obviously post-produced coverage is not a thing in ball golf, but disc golf is coming up in a modern media environment and might not end up emulating its older cousin in the long run. I am not making a prediction here about where we will be in 10 years, but I would not be surprised if we end up in a place where Jomez-esqe coverage is still the norm, only it gets released an hour after the round instead of a day after the round.


Lovemesomediscgolf

>It is not remotely difficult to use non-spoiler titles How hard is it to stay out of the sub until you watch what you want to watch?


DayDreamyZucchini

But can DGN just be better? Idk who’s all enjoying that but I’d rather we did not grow the sport in their direction. Alright that’s a bit much.. but.. it sucks. And it’s not that I haven’t watched it because unfortunately my buddy puts it on every other time I’m there…… and it’s not even *live* anymore! Like whyyyy!!!??? But I can’t say anything because the other option is baking show reruns that he knows verbatim.


Brocktoberfest

Did you watch the LVC? Coverage was significantly improved over last year.


[deleted]

[удалено]


ManiaphobiaV2

Well considering there is a spoiler rule here, go somewhere else to complain like disc golf course review forums or something instead of being in this community. It takes next to no effort to add a spoiler tag and nothing is stopping you from having discussion about the results within the respective posts. Just be courteous dude, I don't understand the hostility. Like are you just upset that there is a spoiler tag? >so you petty little brats, can watch it whenever the fuck you feel like. The spoilers are time gated, so it's not *quite* whenever I feel like.


Lovemesomediscgolf

I don't think it's so much > are so aggressive about their prerogative to spoil results for people as it's more they have to tip toe around others, and they don't want to. Look, I'm not wanting to spoil anything for anyone, but the whole 'you can't post something on social media because I haven't seen it yet' baffles me.


doktarr

That *would* be baffling, if it were true. You actually can post on social media. You can even post on the subreddit. You just can't post on the subreddit **and** use one of a narrow range of titles that give away the result.


Lovemesomediscgolf

So it *is* true. People can't post something on social media because others lack the self-discipline.


doktarr

This makes literally exactly as much sense as saying "people can't visit those sites because other posters lack self-discipline." And, you know, both can be true. But unless you can demonstrate harm caused by the policy of avoiding spoilers, it doesn't actually mean anything.


Marty_P

Yeah, I don’t get the people freaking out over spoilers especially now that live coverage is a thing. If you don’t want it to get spoiled for you, stay off social media. It’s that easy.

FitChemist432

Because this sub has a 24hour spoiler rule. You can disagree with it but you do agree to follow that rule by subscribing to the sub.

Ah yes. Easy as that....


Exavili

I’m watching round 2 tonight 👍👍


lopposse

Can't spoil live sports.


hanginwithfred

Not everyone has four hours on Sunday to watch live coverage. It won’t kill you to wait 24 hours for folks to get home from work on Monday and catch Jomez.


norcaltiger21

Oh so everyone should conform to your lifestyle right? Grow up, if your friends were texting you about the Superbowl an hour after the game, would you be mad? If you want to watch, don't miss the live coverage or stay off social media. Your choice.


ManiaphobiaV2

Did you really just compare LVC to the superbowl


norcaltiger21

Yes, it's live sports. Point still stands, whether it's the Superbowl or amateur jai alai.


ManiaphobiaV2

Your comparing something broadcast to millions of people on TV for free, to something gated behind a paid service. If you can't see the separation there then there is no reason to continue this discussion.


norcaltiger21

lmao, final day is always on YouTube for free. Literally "broadcast to millions of people on TV for free". Stop whining chump.


ManiaphobiaV2

You think millions of people watched LVC?


norcaltiger21

Ok, obviously your way of discussion is to just ask stupid questions. Go work on your form or something.


pokerstar2345

Ya and it won’t kill you to not go on Reddit for 24 hours. GTFO with your privileged BS. I won’t spoil shit, but the rule is fucking ridiculous. You can’t spoil live sports. It’s not anyones responsibility to keep the results to themselves. If you don’t want to see them, don’t go places you will. Seems obvious.


ManiaphobiaV2

No one said keep it to yourself? Just add a spoiler tag. It's not like you can't create posts or anything.


lazyf-inirishman

I wish Instagram had spoiler tags. Sadface.


pokerstar2345

I seriously can’t believe it’s 2022 and you people want to put the burden on everyone on social media to not spoil things for your entitled selves. It’s not everyone who watched live responsibility to not spoil shit, because “you had to work” or whatever the fuck your entitled ass excuse is.


G33R_BoGgLeS

It's live sports, I'm not blurring out the patriots winning a super bowl...sometime in the future...eventually (sniffle)...


DerpoholicsAnonymous

Sure are a lot of people that are really strangely defensive of their right to ruin some fun for disc golf fans. The comparison to the superbowl is idiotic. Disc golf isn't broadcast live on free TV with 200 million people tuned in. You *know* that a huge chunk of this community is waiting for Jomez. So going out of your way (e.g. making a spoiler reddit post) to take away some viewing enjoyment from people just makes you a jerk.


InternetDad

I'm all for spoiler tags, I admit I appreciate it when I can't watch. But if we want the sport to grow, we need to adjust our expectations of coverage. Even the PDGA was announcing the winners on their instagram within a few hours.


DerpoholicsAnonymous

I'm a little ambivalent as regards growing the sport. But I don't think I agree that your second point is necessarily true. Over in the mma subreddit, every single fight is marked as a spoiler right after pay-per-view event takes place. No one seems to have a problem with it. Mma is a huge sport now, but somehow mma fans have realized it's still courteous to be spoiler free for a while after an event. The expectation you cite isn't related to how "big" something is, but rather how that entertainment is consumed. People shouldn't spoil the tournaments because they know many people aren't watching it live. If I'm taping ing a football game, I know I have to stay off the internet if I don't want to be spoiled. Because everyone else is watching live. But if I'm hyped to see a new marvel movie or whatever, I don't have the expectation of being spoiled because people understand that not everyone is going to see it opening night. Of course people associated with a sport will comment on an event. That's why I don't follow mma or disc golf people on Twitter. But there's a way to handle it nicely if you're someone covering a sport. There's an mma channel I follow on YouTube that does a post fight discussion, but he keeps the title and thumbnail vague. Then you have people like Foundation that put up a thumbnail of a tournament winner before it even drops on YouTube. I had to block them because they were showing up in my feed even though I wasn't even subscribed.


G33R_BoGgLeS

You said it yourself, you stay off the internet for football games. You can't just assume what a group of people you don't know are doing. To do so is selfish but that's the world we are in these days I guess. These events/sports/whatever evolve on their own terms. You can't be mad at everyone if "spoilers" are being dropped the organization themselves. They understand that the live coverage is growing and will eventually (if not already) outpace the post coverage. Most of my friends watch the live coverage, and if they don't they follow Udisc live for scoring. Same as a football game.


G33R_BoGgLeS

Let's not assume things shall we? Like that fact that because I support people talking about things that they've watched freely and whenever they feel like does not mean I'm going to make a big huge reddit or facebook post in all caps headlining the winner. I firmly believe that if people have an issue with not seeing spoilers, they need to try their best to stay away from groups that would know before you until you've watched it. I do that for movies, I do it for shows, I do it for whatever I don't want to know about until I see it myself. Shoot, I just about walked out of my wife's ultrasound so I didn't see what sex my kid was. I get that it sucks to know who wins when you're really invested in the event and don't want to see it and sure, a spoiler tag works wonders. But condemning those who don't use it is just selfish


DerpoholicsAnonymous

I mean, I just don't get it. You acknowledge that getting spoiled sucks, you concede that spoiler tags are nice. Yet you're defiant that people should be able to post without a spoiler tag. Why? How fucking hard is it to click a button before posting? No one is taking away your ability to talk about whatever. They just don't want a post randomly showing up on their feed and ruining something fun they've been looking forward to. I *do* take steps to avoid spoilers. It's rare that I let myself get spoiled. But what you're really saying is that you think that everyone that doesn't watch live (most disc golf fans) should unsubscribe from this sub. And, you've convinced me. I like seeing the ace picks and whatnot but it's not worth the risk of ruining my Jomez enjoyment now that the season has started.


G33R_BoGgLeS

I acknowledge people have the right to say or do what they want because I'm not an entitled brat who thinks people should cater to me cause I'm having a mental breakdown over not seeing spoilers. Bottom line is people have a choice and your opinion doesn't make them wrong or right. Don't like what people do then the internet is not the place for you dude.


pokerstar2345

No your expectation of being privileged and entitled to not have anybody spoil your personal experience on a disc golf sub Reddit makes you a jerk


hanginwithfred

This isn’t the fucking super bowl, let’s not kid ourselves. I love disc golf but I also have a grasp on reality.


G33R_BoGgLeS

Woah!!!??!?? it's not the super bowl? I had no idea... sorry about that. /s Obviously my dude, but the point remains the same. Disc golf is growing and live coverage for it is growing. you can old man it and say "back in the good old days everyone had to wait for the post day coverage \*cough cough\* and we all knew at the same exact time". Or you can get over the fact that people like talking about things they've just watched regardless of when they watched it. Grow up


pokerstar2345

The fact that this post has almost 500 upvotes is literally everything that is wrong with disc golf. And why I can’t wait for all post production to go under the DGN paywall, so we don’t have to listen to entitled little brats whine about spoilers. News flash, nobody owes you guys shit.


delux561

"Entitled little brats" then says he wants it to be restricted only to people who pay. Get off your fucking high horse you piece of shit and let people enjoy things


AltStumpy_Boi

But you can’t spoil live sports


pokerstar2345

Amen, it’s fucking absurd these people think it should be our responsibility to not talk about some shit, just because they have shit to do or whatever. You don’t want shit spoiled, stay the fuck off social media. It’s not that fucking hard. The fucking entitlement of these people drives me mad.


wesxninja

How **dare** people request you click a button marked spoiler when creating a post outside the pinned discussion thread. Oh, the humanity!


lo22p

Yeah I avoided this sub thursday-sunday...guess now we know y'all are pretty good when it comes to not spoiling things!

Ya well you’re smart. Not like the other fucking idiots, putting the burden on everyone who did watch live to it spoiler it for them, like we owe it to them or some shit.

How I wish they all were free! I'll never pay for watching disc golf, but enjoyed watching it free. Probably got a lot more eyes watching than behind the wall.

Brodie smith totally ruined it for me on Twitter. May have to unfollow him.


delux561

Man I hate that, I defended him sometimes too

His response was “no spoilers with live sports” Like yea dickhead, I know it was live but I’ve got 3 kids that don’t exactly give me 4 hours on the weekend to watch it live.


delux561

Man wtf is that response everyone is parroting? Like dude youre not on ESPN, your sending info directly to peoples phones that they use for everyday life.

My feeling is he did it on purpose. And that’s fine. In the grand scheme, it’s not a huge deal but it certainly colored the back 9 of that final round for me knowing Drew won and Gavin somehow lost. Brodie is good in that he gets eyeballs on the sport but he has a side to him that just twists the screws and makes people hate him. It’s uncanny.


delux561

Yeah I always see all the hate on him but never saw a reason. That's even worse if it was on purpose

There are no spoilers in live sports. You can’t tell ESPN to not talk about football scores until everybody has had a chance to check their DVR. That being said, spoilers tags are easy for now, and it’s gonna take awhile for disc golfers to get used to this since most people are used to watching Jomez.

This is absolutely stupid. Saying a tv channel is the same as a single subreddit is insane. Last I checked, ESPN doesn't also provide my world news, gaming information and hot sauce recipes. If I could turn off seeing just this subreddit it would be similar, but it's not and you're analogy is horrible.

If you follow other sports on Reddit you would have the same issue though, the only reason disc golf is still spoiler sensitive is because we’re used to next day coverage, it may take a few years but eventually it’s not gonna be a mod enforceable concern, just something you personally have to avoid if you care about that. Eventually the general disc golf watcher will not care about enforcing a spoiler policy, just like every other sport.
