Don't get me wrong... if I was the commissioner I would be suspending these dudes left and right. I think that the pouty attitude displayed by top level players is one of the factors holding this sport back. (when was the last time you saw a pouty snow-boarder). We are an emerging sport, disc golf should be advertised as fun and exhilarating, not touturesome and frustrating.
That said high level disc golf is also a boys club. Those guys play each other almost every week. When Nikko hit the scene he started winning big tournaments and not giving much "respect" to the more established players. (read as not kissing enough a**) They labeled him as a trouble maker while all he was doing was following the example that all of them set.
There are some great guys in the top 20. Our own Nate Sexton is certainly a gentleman and can easily be considered among the best in the world. EMac also really seems to do it the right way... but in the end tempers really seem to be a problem that disc golf needs to address if we want more public support for our touring pros
