In my experience, you have no problem having your say during play. Regardless of whether you are clear on the rules or not. The response you received seems appropriate.
It seems if you were bothered at the time, it would have been appropriate to stop the player in question with a simple, "I'M OUT!" and then the whole rest of the discussion would be unnecessary.
And I don't mean for this post to seem the personal attack it has a hint of. But I've heard you refer to your version of the rules several times in an all-knowing manner and hope you iron that out as you rise up to and into the pro ranks.
Like i said before, i have never been one to hold my tongue. but i would consider myself to be someone that is very aware of my surroundings and do my best as to not disrupt other players during their game and throws. I would never disrupt a player once he has started his rhythm (on purpose), just out of courtesy to them.
i also have only been playing disc golf for 4 years now. i consider myself a relatively new player. i have read the rule book through a couple of times, but i still do not completely understand everything that i need to. Part of me being vocal and open with other players about the rulings is so that i can confirm them to be true. There have been many many many times where i believed that one rule i was playing by was true, only to be pointed out then or later that i was wrong. if i am wrong i do not argue, i accept and apologize for the fault on my part. in these situations is when i can learn the most, and do my best as to not repeat my mistakes. i always follow the rules to the best of my ability and knowledge, and will continue to encourage others to do so.
but i want to thank you for your flattery. i do not take any offense to you or your comments Wes. true, i am intelligent and arrogant. but youre wrong about me being a good player. im a great player, and im not going anywhere.
