That doesn't sound right. It's assumed that a shot going in through the cage wouldn't count because the basket should have prevented it from going in...
Now if that's the case then why don't we assume the disc would have stayed in the basket?
knocking over a basket is one thing but putting a disc in a PDGA APPROVED basket that doesn't fall over is something else. It's not equipment failure that's causing the problems...it's basket design!
Kind of a double standard if you ask me.
PS Has the PDGA changed it's specification requirements on future basket designs to help combat this issue?
