"Reasonable throws for mid and short range. Avoids hucks except the odd big hammer. Quite jumpy, enjoy grabs. Slow but sometimes fast (lazy)"

Natalie

Played for: Mohawks, Brighton Beautiful

Started: September 2012

"This year I've tried to improve on jumping higher, running faster and doing anything to do with defence. This year I've actually improved on drinking port, and being Indian."

Brad Pitt film: Mr and Mrs Smith

"I like frisbee and socialising :) I'm a cutter who prefers to do the minimum amount of throwing possible but I do like to run around a lot."

Lenka

Played for: Various Czech and Slovak teams

Started: 2007

Fave throw: Blade

Brad Pitt film: Inglorious Basterds

"I play for a long time but not very high intensity. My throwing skills leave much to be desired, but playing indoors can conceal that a bit (no wind really makes a difference for me). Also running shorter distances suits me well, as 100 metres is long distance for me, not sprint. What is not so good about playing indoors is that I cannot bring our dog Luna (that some of you may remember from BUDL 2014). I am a quick cutter and don't like handling at all."

Sarah Davis

Started: 2008

Fave throw: The Herdwick Sheepskin

Brad Pitt film: Thelma and Louise

"The aforementioned superstar pick. Will feign modesty when I get picked first. Unlikely to win BIDL as I’ll be playing on another level to the rest of my team and opposition but at least if you’re on my team I’ll try to explain why you’re playing wrong."

Joe Newman

Played for: Mohawks 2

Started: 2013

Fave throw: Backhand

Brad Pitt film: Fight Club

"You may know me as Fish Hands, I can run a lot but pretty average in every other respect.

Sorry I don't know what else to tell you :("


Luis Semple

Started: September

Fave throw: Scoober

Brad Pitt film: Fury

"Sussex Mohawks fresher (Mo2), fast but you'd never know because of my bad stamina, "6'2 which barely helps and apparently I throw scoobers a lot."

Tom Aitken

Fave throw: into the ceiling

Brad Pitt film: Snatch

"I'm the shaggy haired, American guy with a tendency to throw a disc into the ceiling. If I were to describe my frisbee playing abilities it would be that I'm pretty good at being not too bad"

Will Hammond

Played for: Mo2

Started: 2014

Fave throw: There are more throws than the hammer?

Brad Pitt film: I like the Oceans

"Its the final of Bidl (hardcore realist), we're all level with seconds to go, the disc in our endzone. Cometh the hero who throws an exquisite hammer to win the game. It is purely this moment which will define my Bidl season. 

Also I really like to win and sometimes enthusiastically clap a lot. Its all positive"

Brad Pitt film: 12 Years a Slave

"At Sussex Uni studying Mechanical Engineering. I am quite chilled out but still competitive when playing and always want to win - who likes losing right? 

Average for someone who has been playing for 3 months. Like to think I am spacially aware and my defence is the best part of my game thus far."

Craig "Thortu" Gazzard

Played for: Black Hawks Down, Mohawks.

Started: 2013

Fave throw: Hammer

Brad Pitt film: Fury

"Fast, agile, graceful and skilled. All of these words will never truly give you an idea of my potential. Despite my appearance I am a titan of the frisbee arena. 

I have a tendency to look like I'm faking a hammer but really its a warning that I'm going to throw a hammer. Sometimes they are caught.

I'm also allergic to running unless bribed with rum. RUM. 

Founding member of the world famous Black Hawks Down mixed team.

"Craig's really good at catching" - someone, 2015

Please don't pick me."

Started: Late 2014

Fave throw: Scoober 

Brad Pitt film: Snatch, obviously. 

"I'm that guy from last year who didn't quite understand the idea of a draft league and put together a jokes team instead of a winning one. Long story short, we didn't actually come last. When it comes to frisbee, I'm a Handler who likes to play it safe."

Started: Oct-12

Fave throw: Dump pop-pass

"I like to play frisbee with fun-loving people who jump on-board the come-back train if we're losing instead of getting a grump on! I can run quite a lot and am able to make my feet leave the floor if a disc is above my head. Scoobers are not in my portfolio and my other throws are hit and miss but I'm pretty safe on pitch."

Brad Pitt film: Twelve Monkeys. Tree of Life was the absolute worst film I'm ever fucking seen

"I float about in different roles, but I'm mostly a handler. I am sooo up for wearing awful kit, I thrive in dodgy prints and bad hats.

Pump out some Miley Cyrus and I'll get a 70-80% speed boost for 3 minutes"

Peter Markham

Played for: Panthers

Started: Oct-14

Fave throw: Err... don't really have one.

Brad Pitt film: Mr & Mrs Smith

"Second year at Panthers, currently trying to take things less seriously than last year. Pretty tall (which apparently helps) able to run kinda fast-ish (for reasonably short periods of time) and even able to catch the Frisbee (every so often). I put my all into the game and try to come out with a smile (and no injuries). So yeah, that's me."

Brad Pitt film: Se7en

"Played for Mohawks from my 2nd year before moving onto Brighton's 2nd club team for a few years. For most of this time I was a receiver. Then started playing more of a handler role. Now I guess an all rounder.

A good pick to complement your superstar first choice. (that's code for throwing a lot of knifes!)"

Brad Pitt film: Films a where he has minimum clothes.

"I am fun. I pretend that's it's not about the winning - that's a lie, I want to win. I am a good thrower, an average receiver. If you pump me up, I'll play good defence. I am good at toeing in -valuable indoor skill. I beat Desmond's team in the final of Sicko with my beginners team. Sorry Desmond. 

Accolades include - previous captain of the Dolls and Goon indoor team. Winner of a disc golf game on Brighton Campus 2014. Winner of most red wine thrown up on the morning after of my red wine party debut in Paga 2013. And finally captain of the first Panthers Mixed team that successfully qualified for Div 2 Nationals where we came third.

I currently coach Brighton women's team, I am willing to coach them bad things so that we can win. BIDL > Tour.

Pick me."
