  1. Hey LA Ultimate Playas,

    Just a reminder or letting everyone know about the recently amended LA Board of Supervisors; BAN ON FRISBEES and balls on the beach.

    LA Board of Supervisors Meeting Tomorrow Feb 14th 9:30am the LA Board of Supervisors Meeting 500 West Temple Street, Room 381 B Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration.

    After 30yrs of a frisbee and ball ban, the LA B’oS has changed it’s old malevolent law into a newer attack on working people with a first offense fines that start at $100. Mind you that’s $100 if the lifeguard tells you the first time between Labor Day and Memorial Day, to stop THROWING A FRISBEE! Or kicking a soccer ball or throwing a ping pong ball for that matter.

    Many argue that after so many yrs the law wont’ be enforced. But why have a law on the books if it shouldn’t be enforced? Or a law that more than likely will be “selectively enforced” with people of color, the LGBTQ community, and (working) poor likely familiar targets. If safety is an issue, insist that the ordinance specifically state what number of ppl constitutes “an unsafe place for play” or indicate places on the beach specifically for games. Leaving the language open as it is now allows for the police to legally fine beach-goers hundreds of dollars for activities that should be free for all.

    Here’s the acutal ordinance (pg 29)::: http://file.lacounty.gov/bos/supdocs/65848.pdf
    The petition to Stop the Ban on Frisbees at the Beach::: http://signon.org/sign/stop-the-ban-on-frisbeesfoot.fb1?source=s.fb&r_by=2464937

    Thank you for your attention and consideration. After several yrs of ulitmate in LA this is my first post here!

  2. It’s pretty clear why Green Lantern has no votes. Obviously, everyone here realizes that all you have to do is play with a yellow disc and Green Lantern is powerless to affect it.

  3. Or wear yellow clothing. Also, you need to keep your will up at all times. Otherwise, you could bring snakes and other fearful items to the sideline to distract him.

  4. How Professor X didn’t win is beyond me. Imagine a 13 person team (plus a poacher in a wheelchair) moving the disc in the same direction. 15 calahans in a row, it’s a shutout. Prof X controls the game while slowly wheeling to the other line for the pull.

  5. i’m with kief. i voted for professor x. mind control wins over any abilities. plus, he’s got the power of telekinesis – mind bullets, baby. the only way you don’t vote for him is that his inclusion in the poll is unfair.

  6. Professor X doesn’t have telekinesis, just telepathy.

  7. let me raise the dork bar a little higher. from wikipedia.

    limited telekinetic powers = six shooter mind bullets.

    Ultimate Charles Xavier

    In the Ultimate Marvel continuity, Professor Charles Xavier is the world’s most powerful telepath, the founder and patron of the X-Men and a world-famous lecturer for pacifism and mutant emancipation. In contrast to his mainstream version, he is publicly open about his mutant status from the beginning and also has limited telekinetic abilities. He leaves his wife Moira MacTaggert, whom he collaborated with to create new therapies and surgical techniques for their mutant patients, and their sick son David to pursue Magneto’s dream of a mutant society, but Magneto turns on him, crippling him with a shard of metal through his spine.

  9. What about the Martian Manhunter (J’onn J’onzz), who’s basically:

    MMH = Kitty Pryde + Prof X + Mr. Fantastic + Mystique + (1/8)Superman

    …..?

  10. Dangerous Play is a foul in 11th ed. rules. Thus it is already a rule in any of our leagues that use 11th ed. as their base, including Summer League. So we already have a dangerous play foul:

    XVI. H. 4. States:

    Reckless disregard for the safety of fellow players or other dangerously aggressive behavior (such as significantly colliding into a stationary opponent), regardless of whether or when the disc arrives or when contact occurs is considered dangerous play and is treated as a foul . This rule is not superseded by any other rule.

  11. Totally agree with you Peaches. And I’m surprised it isn’t used more often – especially in co-ed.

  12. Just wanted to remind people there is a forum now, and there is a post specifically related to this on the forum.

    I mentioned in there that I know it’s in the USAU rules that you can have dangerous play calls. But it’s almost never called, so some leagues go further with the concept and draw more attention to it by putting it in the league rules. That’s more the angle I was coming from.

  13. Why isn’t ShamWow on this list? 3 time Beach League champion. Does it have to be three in a row?

    Like (0) Dislike (0)
  14. Thanks Peaches. Forgot ShamWow won last year. Empire and Damn also did not win three in a row. But everyone on this list won at least 3 of 4 years.

  15. before the sands of time wash away the memory of Empire, certainly the best LA league team of last ten years if not ever, let me remind all the readers that the roster over the years contained at least 11 national college and club champions (plus multiple world champs, too) from teams including Black Tide, Condors, Fury, JAM, NC State, UCSD, Blackbird, and Donner Party.

    ShamWow is a great team — a GREAT team!

    But please call me when they have amassed a CV anywhere near Empire.

    800-588-2300, EMPIRE!

  16. Personally, if I had unlimited funds and didn’t mind buying new cleats every season or every other season I would get soccer cleats. But since that’s not the case, I choose the durability of football americana cleats over the light weight soccer cleats

  18. why do people prefer savage jersey over 5 ultimate? My 5ultimate jersey from 2012 summer league jersey fits waaaay better than this savage jersey and the material feels better.

  21. 7th Heaven was a mid-90′s to mid-00′s TV series. It started on the WB.

  23. after having spent the last two hours procrastinating at work by reading every poll, i have a few comments:
    1. i applaud the creativity (on all the polls that do not start with ‘who is going to win…. this time?’)
    2. how cute is it that the “is it better to give or receive a huck” was split exactly 50/50 (what christmas spirit!)?
    3. how did seth get kill in the screw, marry, kill game? (no one has EVER wanted to kill him. but actually though.)
    3. is amsterdam summer 2015 still a thing?
    4. who got the perfect on their SAT? (someone needs to own up to that anonymous poll response)
