  3. Quote Of The Day: AUDL Edition

    The AUDL just announced a new partnership with George P. Johnson, a major marketing agency that is working on the Super Bowl among other projects. Here’s what GPJ’s CEO Chris Meyer had to say in the press release:

    As we worked with the AUDL to explore the possibilities, we were impressed by the large and growing participation rates of Ultimate, and the rapid development of the league in such a short period of time. But what really caught our attention were the unique attributes of sportsmanship, integrity and fair play that permeate the sport of Ultimate. In today’s sport market, it seemed an ideal time to showcase the remarkable values that set Ultimate apart.

  4. Lou Burruss Announces End Of Column At Skyd

    Lou Burruss, perhaps the most influential columnist in ultimate media, has announced that he will no longer be writing a column for Skyd Magazine.

    He writes:

    It’s a time decision. My family is at a crucial turning point: My youngest child entered school this fall and my wife returned to paid work after years of managing our home and homestead. Like all changes, this is a mixed blessing. Our bank account will be happier, but we will be more stressed and more harried. My freedom to say, “I’ve got to write my post tonight, can you cook/feed the chickens/put the kids to bed?” is gone.

    For years, Burruss was — and will surely continue to be — a key influencer in the ultimate sphere. His blend of reporting, opinion, and analysis will be missed.
