Fine Print for the politicians: This league is in no way shape or form in any way related to the illegal substance known on the street as "pot." The name has no relation whatsoever, it is merely an acronym for those players looking to tour. This is not a gathering of individuals for the purpose of participating in the illegal consumption of substances that are considered harmful to human beings or to cause anyone to get their panties in a bunch. This is not in anyway a way to encourage anyone of any race, religion or nationality to participate in any type of illegal activity, including, but not limited to the consumption of illegal substances such as "drugs." Please understand that this league has no manipulative ability or control over anyone in any regards and will not depict any "drugs" as being "cool" in anyway. This is a family friendly league, so as long as you're not a small minded, control hungry fascist, you are more than welcome to attend our league.

Chris beat me to it, though it is amazing he can make this change and not the 20 other changes I have actually needed.

How about this name:
Tournament Players Tour

The other name and I mean only the name, did diminish the actual value of this concept.

Good Luck Jeff, I love the concept.

See I still think asking first, is so much nicer!

But, now that the action taken was dramatically portrayed as an cold and calculated attempt to scrutinize (seemly as if possessed by the Central Scrutinizer aka. Frank Zappa) and bowdlerize a purely innocent, and totally new and original idea (not really). I can see it now!

The Pot Wars (Golfer X help a brother out with an animated GIF)
Imagine it happening in Far Right St. Louis, where late fees are paid, water is a buck, and each time you are on the course the membership patrol will evaluate your status and remind you to pick up garbage, and not leave any.

It was here that Embattled Disc Golf Players Only founder J. Irwin, met his demise forced out into exile by the great money-producing machine of magnate C. Kinsella, owner of Far Right enterprises LLC and a straight shooting, act first, keep your eye on the target businessman. It was C. Kinsella the architect of prosperity in Far Right St. Louis, yet throughout his meteoric rise, this Juarganuat continually consumed valuable time to fulfill his desire to the destruction of his nemesis J. Irwin.

In this episode, C. Kinsella still furious when J. Irwin tricked him into taking over the Tee sign campaign, is blindsided by Irwin who once again claims to be just looking for a non-gimmicky simple game shoots a verbal missle (P.O.T) disguised as a nongimmicky idea directly into the center of FAR Right St. Louis. J. Irwin, knowing what a powder keg he is playing with, masterfully portrays the innocent concept of creating players tour, while cleverly disguising the word pot as an acronym. See how the fun explodes as J. Irwin exposes the magnate of his fascist behavior, and how when all that was needed was to politely ask for a compromise. Watch how these two avoid a simple gesture like respect and common sense as they lock horns again.

C. Kinsella will have no chance again, thinking that POT would be associated with the word pot. Watch the masterful J. Irwin prove his word usage in no way shape or form was about that word, just a simple acronym that in no way is gimmicky or used prod the Far Right St. Louis emperor. You be the judge.

You are going for something that attracts the eye. It doesn't make it proper or right or justified.
There are players and travelers who view this website that find your tongue-in-cheek offensive, myself included. You have a long history of insulting members of our club and the board. There is no changing how you think or the short fuse you live with. And I am called a Fascist for moderating the message board. Would F.*.*.K. be included in your rationale if you had words that fit?

Don't be silly. This league came about because a number of local pros feel cast out by the RCF and it was (originally) going to be the Pro Only Tour, but I felt that was discriminatory, so I offered a solution of Players Only Tour. Long story short, this league has NO involvement with the RCf, so I don't really see how it matters anyway.
October can't get here soon enough...

PS: Chris, it also seems that you're forgotten the countless hours we spent in RCF board meetings discussing censorship on the message board. It was finally decided that we live in America and we can't really censor anything but vulgarity, so, yeah I guess there would be a difference if I used vulgar language in teh name. I just find it hilarious how no one (including you) ever monitor the message board and clean it up or make and of the updates, then I make my first posting in months and you jump all over me for it. I think the underlying problem is that you know you won't be able to make a dime off the participants and it gives players an alternative to the watered down gimmicky events you plan. The irony, of course, is that I don't even do drugs but I know someone else that does...

That must be a recent development for you, Jeff. Have you forgotten the 'Rules' thread that is posted on every forum? With regard to the tournaments and memberships, my focus is improving our courses and making the events appealing to the majority of players. Your agenda seems to be 'my way or I'll insult you and call you names until I get it my way'.
