Weird Thing About Ultimate
"The weird thing about ultimate is that it isn't how many goals your offense scores, it is more about how efficiently your offense scores those goals. The more chances you give your opponent's defense to score, not only are they more likely to score, but you waste offensive energy playing defense.
If it gets sufficiently bad, the defense may even have to step in and play offense which not only saps some of their energy, but every hold goal not scored represents the loss of an opportunity for the defense to crack the code of the opponent's offense. Then the flipside is that if your defense can score frequently enough, then your offense needn't even take the field.
It isn't just that you score, it is how you score."
