Can someone add as synonym for ? According to many references, "frisbee" is omitted due to trademark concerns, yet ultimate frisbee is a commonly used name for the sport.

    "frisbee" is omitted because it's not the name of the sport. It would be like calling "Curling" "Rock Curling" – user647 Jul 26 '12 at 20:15

    @sancho, I came across the game/sport a long time ago - back then, everyone I knew called it "ultimate frisbee." – JW8 Jul 26 '12 at 21:45
  • Ah... yes. It was previously more often called ultimate frisbee, but the newer generation of players has grown up knowing it under the simple name "ultimate". Definitely worth a tag synonym. – user647 Jul 26 '12 at 21:56
  • Tag synonym has been added. Question closed. – user527 Mar 12 '13 at 17:43

"Ultimate" is also used as a synonym for "ultimate running" - usually everything longer than a Marathon - so I don't think we can add the requested synonym...

UPPS: I have just noticed that I read the question the wrong way around. Hmm... I would like to do away with the "ultimate" tag all-together... :-)

  • Not even if the sport itself is called "ultimate" now? – JW8 Aug 6 '12 at 17:23
  • My point is that we have two sports that calls itself "ultimate"... It is much like the discussion we had previously on the tag "football"... – Tonny Madsen Aug 7 '12 at 6:08

    I don't agree. Ultimate running might be informally called "ultra" or "ultimate", but ultimate frisbee is literally referenced as "ultimate" now. – JW8 Aug 7 '12 at 16:13
