New Look!

Look at us now!

Over the past year we’ve grown quite a bit.  From coverage at local tournaments to live coverage of Canadian National Championships it’s obvious that this site needs to go new places.  We’re starting the change slowly by maintaining the blog format, providing space for Feature Articles, and an area with quick links to important event coverage.

There will also be an emphasis to add new writers and photographers as there are many passionate Ultimate players out there that I enjoy sharing experiences with.  If you’re interested in writing then send me (Tushar) an email:  editor@iamultimate.com.  If you have suggestions for content and/or events that we should cover let me know as we’re expanding.

The new look was created by my friend Jon Wilcox who’s a great graphic artist and web designer in the US:  www.jtwilcox.com.

Hope you like the new site and rather than bother with asking if you like it (as you’ll find ways to let me know) how about giving us your thoughts on the following:

    What does “important” means ? That’s the question.

  2. In the WFDF Ultimate rules 2010, the observers rule does not exist.
    That observer rules was withdrawn from the WFDF Ultimate rules in 2007 (in Turku, World’s by Nations) to avoid the use of observers in WFDF tournaments.
    So, all the teams that registered for the WUCC 2010 in Praha knew that NO game can be played with observers (even the “important” ones).

    What is an”important” game ?
    What is this “poll” ?
    And why is it coming from a “private” blog ?

    If the WFDF wants to know the opinion of the World Ultimate community, WFDF should make an official “poll” of all the Ultimate players in all the countries, so not only the connected players who are on the Eurodisc mailing-list.
    I don’t think that it is a good thing to have that kind of “poll” endorsed by an official by sending it on the Eurodisc mailing-list, as I said before: if you want a “poll” about observers, make a real one with all the Ultimate players around the World (1 Ultimate player WFDF member = 1 vote).

    When the observers rule will come back in the WFDF rules, I will stop being a WFDF member, and it will be the time to create a new federation for Ultimate that keeps the original idea of playing a (great) team sport, with the self-responsability of the control of the game only on the players themselves.

    It seems that the high level of competition becoming the main goal of more and more teams/players, is also becoming the main problem; the will to win is insidiously creating the conditions where the use of observers/referees looks unavoidable to some teams/players.
    The question today is not only about the use of observers, but more generally :
    Are we ready to keep on respecting our opponent, the rules, and the simple pleasure of play, although the highly competitive play is encouraged ?
