I have been reading the PDGA message boards for quite some time and I've seen a common theme crop up whenever the subject of enforcing rules is brought up: avoidance of conflict. What's the deal with that?
This may or may not apply to you, so please don't take this personally; this is a question that has me really confused. During tournaments and such, most of the rule enforcement is up to the players in the group to either call the player on an infraction, or bring it up to the TD. Knowing this, why do I see so many people post that they'd rather let the perpetrator get away with the problem so that they don't have to get into a conflict with the perpetrator? If they break the rules, why should anyone else care about creating conflict? If they weren't breaking the rules, you wouldn't have to call them on it in the first place.
Lastly, I've also read posts that say people break out car windows or tell others that they'll seriously **** up another person if they continue to call them on the rules. How common is that? Is there some rogue gang of disc golfers that goes on tours intimidating everyone else? I just never assumed a problem such as this was present in this sport.
