Looks like it's starting to turn out like last year's tag situation. All the lower tags (1-29) are seeming to lie dormant in the league rotation. Or maybe it was just this week in particular. Top 5 tags couldn't even stay in the teens.

I understand your point Josh, however the extremes are now where close to what we were experiencing this date last year. --> By Feb. last year we were up to tag #101 & had more extreme gaps. I'm sure we'll see alot more of this year's tags back in rotation when we go back to warm Wednesday nights.

With that said though, it kind of depends on what each person expects to get out of this league. Personally, I believe it's a great tool for building a greater local disc golf community. Not all players are going to be able to play every time we have a league round. However many of those player ... more

Very valid points. Happy to see the disc golf community moving upward and onward by leaps and bounds. But it's a bit of sulky feeling walking around with a couple of #40+ tags hanging off your bag. Just saying, I'm about to go Challenge mode and get some of these lower tags back in the mix, or revert to a Casual Tag and avoid the fuss :P

Josh, Please don't take my comments to be entirely directed at you. As you've seen, each year we have a new crop of players that need to hear about this "flaw" in bag tag leagues. Especially considering it may not actually be a flaw because it's present in every bag tag le ... more

I would point out that playing half as often, as we do during winter (and on weekends, too) makes it at least twice as likely that people will be unable to defend their tags due to other conflicts. I've been out of town for work-related stuff the past two league rounds. So therefore it's - ... more

Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that any conflict causes twice the impact, in terms of people holding onto their tags.

I understand that it's difficult to find time to make rounds, especially during these winter months. I'm more or less concerned with the players that I've never met or have only seen at one league round back in August/September and then disappear. Okay, haha, done venting my frustra ... more

Well, I'm in the middle of the California desert right now, or else I'd be there, haha.

I'm not going to start listing names, but Rob and Jon, you guys are hardly part of the problem. Let's just say, if you're on DiscGolfScene active in this discussion, you're probably not the one(s) I'm referring to.

Jon Tveite   February 19, 2013 at 10:12am

I didn't feel accused, Josh, and I wasn't defending myself. I just thought I'd throw that out there. Winter is different. But I understand the concern about tags becoming frozen.
