To all our readers,

Ultiworld is not unique in the web publishing ecosystem. More and more, publishers — from small ones like Ultiworld to very large ones like the New York Times — have realized they cannot rely on advertising dollars alone. And in order to serve their communities, direct financial support from readers is necessary. Your subscription directly supports our writing, video, podcasts, streaming, and other coverage on everything from college to club to youth to international to disc golf. It means more than ever this year.

Thank you.

Photo Of The Day: Forced Name Change Edition

The Ghetto Birds, a mixed team out of Seattle, were required by USA Ultimate to change their team’s name. They will attend Nationals, for now, as Seattle Mixed. Team member Mark Burton made up a new logo for the team, seen below:

Censored Birds, formerly Ghetto Birds.

The team was required to change it under the name/logo/uniform guidelines:

USA Ultimate reserves the right, at any time, to prohibit, alter, or require a team to alter, a team name, player or coach nickname, team logo, jersey graphic, sponsor name/graphic, or uniform and/or suggest alternatives at or in conjunction with a USA Ultimate program or event should USA Ultimate personnel determine that the existing name, logo, graphic, or uniform is in conflict with or might hinder the mission of the organization or the goals of a specific USA Ultimate program or event.  This includes, but is not limited to, sexual references, profanity, drug references, and any discriminatory language or graphics.  Alterations must meet with the approval of USA Ultimate personnel.
