Ultimate Got 99 Problems but Ditch Ain't One

Out of the ashes of NexGen Network, which ceased operations on December 31, 2014, rises....

[As predicted, this media venture was not a combination of company names.]

Reportedly financed by the E.R.I.C. founders, the new media company called Ditch introduced itself with a proclamation which does not address the sport of ultimate directly, but refers to a "unique community united by disc":
Ditch is for those who think about sports a little differently.
To us, your success on the field is not a value judgment of who you are as a human being. If you are tuning into that doctrine, we're not here for you.
We play for the chance to travel while competing with friends.
We play for the experience of belonging to a globally unique community united by the disc.
Ditch encourages unconventional spirits. We lionize the adventuring wanderer, we glorify the weird. We relish those that thrive when pushing the status quo.
We never know what the future will hold, but you can bet that we'll have a good time when we're there. With our lifestyle, the potential roads are limitless.
We are Ditch. Thanks for joining us.
Grab a bag.
Pack light.
