Lol. Oh, the generational gap is SO apparent on this one.

No generation Gap here. You have never had your Intellectual Property Stolen. I have had a large accounting program that I created stolen.

It has nothing to do with the PGA not on the cutting edge of media services.

It is their property to see fit as they do with it. She does not have the right to do what she did. In the grand scheme is it a big offense by a single person, no. Shake your finger at her and say don't do that.

But as an entity you have to protect your rights whether the offender is large or small. You can not set a precedent.

She can call Dustin Johnson and they can commiserate together about not knowing stupid rules.

A one-year suspension seems like way too much if this is a first offense. I'm guessing this is not her first run-in with the PGA Tour brass.

You took my comment. I was still editing my comment.

True or not the PGA claimed that it was not just this single incident but that she had a history of violating there media rules.

But off course the Man will always say that. What they are lacking is a clear policy. What it sounds like is that she does not follow the rules and they used this to get rid of her.

It is also important to note that she actually works for Fox Sports International and not just some web blog girl.

Just for the record I am usually against the "MAN"

And why can't I bring an actually Periscope to a PGA event. Last event that I went to the ticket said no Periscopes. Funny thing is that I bought the Periscope at the 2005 PGA Championship.

And Meerkat was better then Periscope until Twitter tried to kill Meerkat.

Damn, I seem to have a lot of thoughts today.

How are those new matchplay rules working out. Good by Speith.

No actual periscopes because they block the view of short people, like me. I'm guessing.

And, yeah, Twitter's move with Meerkat was slimy. I hate it when corporate competitiveness gets in the way of people using good products.

I have one of these.



I went to the Doral this year and on the ticket it said no periscopes. I wasn't going to bring it anyway. The crowds are not that deep and I hate carrying things around when I am at a tournament. Heck I even left my phone in the car because I did not want it in my pocket.

It is actually a high percision piece of equipment.

I am a short person. I have used it at the US Open and the PGA championship. With the crowds so deep it becomes impossible to see anything at times.

It's not like those big boxes from the 70's. These don't block any view.

See my above pictures.
