The ESPN Benchmark for Ultimate

ESPN covered the World Frisbee Championships in the past, and has recently featured great plays like these, but also make fun of the sport. I have argued that a pro ultimate league should look beyond ESPN. Sure, it's awesome to see Ultimate on ESPN, but is it really necessary?

Well, it's interesting to see the perspectives from two leaders with a vested interest as they pursue their own professional Ultimate league.

From Jeff Snader, MLU President.
"On the home page of ESPN, under the drop-down menu that says, "More Sports" I want to see Ultimate under there..."

From Kevin Minderhout, NexGen Founder.
"...We don’t need to be validated by ESPN."
