Also, I agree with Cabal, the PRO division competitors DO have a serious lack of understanding of the rules.
I was at an event this year hanging out with a card and there was a rules issue that came up, a veteran player told the rest of the group something that was definitely incorrect. Meanwhile, two of the other players on the card, both very highly rated pros, admitted that they'd never actually read the rulebook.
It's pretty common, and I completely support what the PDGA is implementing this year. It won't magically make everyone playing NTs know the rules, but it's a start, and it will hopefully help people take pride in knowing the rules of our sport.
DUHHH, I know that, but without wasting my time typing out "the supertour A-tier Am event that is run at the same time as the Pro NT event with the exact same name" yada yada, yall smart, didnt realize i had to dumb-down my post to below High School graduate level for everyone to understand what I meant. We know all Am sides of NT Events are seperate "A-tier events", what am I supposed to call it, "hey everyone, I'm signed up for the Supertour A-Tier Amatuer Memorial"? That is just stupid, "I'm signed up for the memorial" sounds simple and common sense. So you telling me I didn't go to the memorial in 2009? They have the same name, no point in dragging it out into stupid seperation names and event titles... and no one said anything about "Amatuer NT", Tim and Gwilim
