    The only comment I heard regarding the baskets was that they looked freaking terrific. I heard that comment about 150 times.

        I had no trouble seeing the baskets, and I have old lady eyes. Love them they look amazing.

                  dam your down to just a single feeling.....Running the Fling must be a Rough Motha.

                  i think you "all" put in a great effort for the disc comm. as a whole.


                  Red Baskets are so much better than Yellow Baskets




                  maybe Jonsey just needs to work on his putting??

                    Just coming from the 8% of males that are color blind, the most common type of color blindness is red/green color blind, so they are very hard to see for 8% of the male population. Up close they look very nice but finding a dark red basket in a green background is a challenge. Bright would be a better choice IMO, but you guys worked your butts off and made an amazing event either way. Thanks for all your hard work and Jonesy I feel your pain.

                      Eh, I'm red/green colorblind too.. and while I need someone to help me find my red discs on even short-cut grass, I had no problem spotting the baskets.

                        same here. can't find my red or pink discs in the short grass but i didn't have a problem with the baskets... however, color blindness works differently for different people so maybe jonesy really did have a legitimate concern... or maybe he just hadn't heard enough griping about the fling and didn't want hagerty and mittl to think they'd actually done as damn fine a job as anyone could have hoped for or expected...

                        ha.

                          Strongly colorblind people might only be able to tell about 20 hues apart from each other, with normal color vision this number raises to more than 100 different hues. Severity of color blindness is usually divided into the following four categories: slightly, moderate, strong, and absolute. So I am happy that you could see them, but for the other color deficient folks, like myself, do have a problem seeing them. Just facts of life, I am not saying they should be changed or that every color deficient person cant see them. I was just saying that I have a problem with those color combinations.

                            Yeah, my dad had the same issue when he came out to spectate, he finally gave up and went home. I feel bad for those that have difficulties with colors!

                              I'm pretty sure that there is no color that could be used that wouldn't cause someone to complain.

                                That is sad and probably true. I was not trying to complain, I was just letting people know that it is a problem for a portion of us to actually see that color. I think yellow is a great color and has been fairly successful in being used for baskets for a while. Really gray is fine with me, I just feel Jonesys pain.
