    Alan Kolick and Markham Shofner have both renewed their contracts with MLU defending champions DC Current for the 2015 season. They are joined by Erik Salmi and 10 other players from last season that re-signed earlier.

    That level of roster consistency, combined with little major roster news out of other MLU clubs, sets up the Current as the front runner to win a second straight title in 2015.

  3. Frisbee As Deadly Weapon

    This whole clip of Brodie Smith on Stan Lee’s Superhumans is pretty funny. Brodie’s also a better marksman than you might expect:

    Whistle Sports HomepageWhistle Sports, an online sports video platform that connects corporate brands with sports-based publishers and “unconventional” sports, just closed a $28 million funding round featuring investments from Emil Capital Partners, Liberty Global Ventures, and Peyton Manning.

    Whistle Sports prominently features both Brodie Smith and Major League Ultimate as clients on their homepage.

    The news is yet another signal that there is continued strength in sports programming as well as bullishness about the future of online streaming video.

  6. George Stubbs’ Nasty Lefty Backhand + Commentary

    Perhaps you’ve already seen this clip of Ironside’s George Stubbs throwing a lefty backhand into a tight seam in the defense:

    Pretty stuff. Brady Meisenhelder has some further comment over on Pulled Disc about this throwing choice:

    It is important to understand how throwing and body angles change what is possible on the field and how one can use movement to open up options.
