Open mic night on Disc Golf talk Radio?

Postby chainchaser » Fri Aug 03, 2012 7:51 am

I have been thinking about this a bunch, so who is game to just get on the show and talk about the state of disc golf. I mean have a ADULT conversation about some of pressing issues in disc golf at the moment. I want to hear from the everyday player about their thoughts and ideas in the sport. We hear the Pros ideas so let's have our ideas shared also and maybe someone will listen or if we have pros show up maybe we can all talk about it on a level playing field.

I like the idea. But yes there is serious danger of conversational devolution.

There will be ground rules of course and no opinion will be more important than another. Arguing will be allowed to the point of a full onslaught which then the participants would be muted,I can control that, but hopefully we could have intelligent conversation and maybe agree to disagree on some points. The hardest will be to keep people from talking over each other which I am still thinking about. Maybe I will have an agreement made up so that everyone understands the rules and if they go over the top they will be muted. I don't want to censor opposing view points, I just would not want people to be cussing and making derogatory remarks.

Do you have a topic or a focus point for discussion? It may be best to keep things structured so things don't get out of hand.

I would think that there could be several topic to discuss. I mean I don't really think there is a shortage of that in this sport. I would say something like how do we get bigger sponsors or should there be an only pro tour? What should be the future of the sport? These are few just off the top of my head. I am sure with a little time I could come up with a dozen more!!!
