Heard a brief bit on ESPN Radio this morning..who are the ultimate players you love to hate. Players you would love to play with, but hate to play against.

Example I heard on the radio was Kevin Garnett.

Hate because his team will likely beat you or because of the attitude ?

I have only played a year of high level ultimate so I haven't played with and against people but a couple of my club teammates I would imagine I would hate to play against.

Foremost would be Tyler Conger (Tanasi, formerly Axis of C'Ville and UVA I think). I love playing with him cause he has awesome breaks and is fun to handle with. He's a big focal point for the other team which opens up a lot of options to his teammates. He's very vocal so a lot of the stuff you can get distracted with, he's already taking care of and all you have to worry about is making good plays.

I haven't played against him but he can be infuriating to the other team. Mostly stems from things like travel calls (not that they aren't travels, I think in 4 or 5 games over the season with observers, everyone of his travel calls was upheld but he definitely looks for them). He seems to get grin more and more the chippy-ier a game gets but tt's not like a Pitt/Oakland where they thrive off the other team being pissed at them and are pushing hard for that intensity all game. It's more that he enjoys just getting under someone's skin. He'll be grinning about that break throw he just threw around the kid who's ticked at him about a foul call 20 minutes ago or something. And seeing that grin can be infuriating when you know you really aren't capable of stopping it.


Wow- obviously I am really putting off doing my final projects, I put way too much thought into that.

I think I speak for everyone that knows what frisbees are when I say Ben Feldman from Wisconsin.

This is the second "let's talk shit about people" thread I've seen up in less than a week. The first one got (thankfully) very few responses, and this one doesn't exactly seem to be taking off either. Seriously, do we have nothing better to do than tear down other people in the sport? Especially during Callahan season, when the community is showcasing what is best about this sport, threads like this really bum me out.

Big Ji, i dont think this thread is the same. This is about players you love to hate. The OP said these are players you love playing with but hate playing against. Presumably because they are good and frustrate the competition.

But the whole impetus to this thread was Kevin Garnett, who was recently called "the dirtiest player in the league." If that's how the conversation begins, with an MVP-caliber player to whom accusations like that stick, I don't see the rest of the conversation being very fruitful.

and then Garnett went out and shut that guy's team up.

Garnett is my favorite player right now, and I would hate to play against him so a great example for this thread. This thread isn't about shitting on people, I agree with california_encounter, it incorporates those guys that are very good and frustrating to play against.

I bet big Donovan would suck to play against if the game got chippy, Oh and that Strazer guy from Asheville, or however you spell his name.

yeah, I'm a dick. But I'm also really easy to get open on so it balances out.

Mark Strasser? Is that an ironic suggestion?

Having been on the NC ultimate scene for quite some time, i would bet confidently that it's not.

whoops, no idea who Donovan Thomas is. Which I might get berated for since google tells me that Lou Burruss wrote a blog that mentions him.
