What do high-level throwing top players/performers like to be called? Player? Performer? Virtuoso? Expert? Grand Poobah? Ralph?

Writing a blog that mentions the ITSA and its members and need a proper term for this role.

Thanks!

I will strive for expert. I think I can get there. It's gonna take some work, but once I get past regens, I'll be in the right direction.

In the meantime, we all have names or things we prefer to be called. Isn't that sufficient?

Not exactly. I'm looking for a term for a category, not for any one person. A consensus seems to be emerging around "player", so I'll just go with that.
