If you're going to try and troll at least put some effort into it.

i thought that was already a thing..!?

i know there are official college teams, and i thought i remembered hearing about scholarships and player tradings..maybe i just misunderstood.

but yeah, i would believe. i've never met an irish person (friend or foe) who hasn't laughed at the combination of "frisbee" and "sport" in the same sentence, but i have taken people (men and women) who play rugby out for a few games and they've admitted it is a tough game, and they can see the "sport" in it, even if there isn't a ball.

in short, people who laugh at frisbee as a sport are usually people who have never tried to play frisbee as a sport.

similar to table tennis, from a personal standpoint; i thought of it as "an amusing past time" until i tried to play with people who really know their stuff. it really takes a great amount of skill, accuracy, grace, power, concentration. that's not to say it can hold its own against the power and skill involved in a great game of rugby or soccer, but it's generally worth allowing that games of skill can look very easy from the sidelines, and take on a new form once you get involved.

Fairly certain there isn't, most club's details on here. http://www.irishultimate.com/players/find-a-team/#Club

Nearest would probably be OCS or Jabba
