Follow the rules of the park, wherever that may be. If you're at Lucky Mud, leave the MP3 player in the car. If you are at Lakewood, let the sound fly. It's a public park first, and a disc golf course distant second. Obviously you should make sure it's okay with everybody in your group, but other groups' opinions should matter not. Remember, you think the guys with the pit bulls and the jam box are such assholes, what do you think their assessment is of your
stuffed shirt? Who wins the opinion battle?
Next time you hear someone yell exuberantly in the park after getting an ace or a killer birdie, run your offended little ass over there and tell 'em to pipe down or you'll write a frisbee golf forum post about how much you disapprove of their noise.
The way some of you are arguing against it makes you sound like the hater/golfers from Falling Down
. At least those d-bags were at a private country club with legal precedent.
One last note- some of you are confusing impolite actions with illegal actions. Placing litterers and music-listeners in the same category is pretty asinine.
It's also pretty asinine to pretend that anyone said any of the things you're arguing against. No one called anyone an asshole (ok, I called some people douchebags, but I was referring to people acting like douchebags, not because of music) or said music or pit bulls were illegal. Last I looked, it was still legal
to express an opinion.
"Amplified music goes right on the list with loose pitbulls, litterers, casual groups of eight, and shirtless aggro douchebags as things I dislike encountering on the course." Hmm, things I dislike.....yeah, how dare anyone dislike something.
"But that's just one man's opinion, and I've never asked anyone to turn their tunes off."
By the way, next time you see someone smoking pot in the park, run your offended little ass over there and tell 'em to stop because it is ILLEGAL or you'll write a frisbee golf forum post about how much you disapprove of their behavior.
I've never asked anyone to turn off their tunes, " but I'm glad you were able to get all worked up over this topic.
