araytx, I'm not sure that I see what you gain in timing or warming up by "throwing" your mini as opposed to just do the same motion without anything in your hand?

I'm saying a mini is not a disc at all. Obviously you cannot throw an illegal disc and get away with it for practice. If you did, it would be an argument wether it was practice throws or throws with...

And as Brad pointed out, IF it was a penalty throwing a mini, it would be 2 penalty throws for an illegal disc.

a disc NOT USED IN PLAY yes. Something not used in play, the same way a hat is not used in play. Also, the definition of throw makes it impossible to "throw" a mini.

If you bring a CD, that is...

a mini marker is not considered a disc, and therefore throwing it does not constitute a practice throw. It could/should qualify as a courtesy violation. How could anyone in good faith call a throw...

I understand the sings being said about Crazy's commentary, and agree with a lot of it, but let's not get caught up in nitpicking here. This was by far the best DGP.tv coverage I have seen. I had...

Dan you are clearly not "willing" to understand, but I'm too stupid to give up trying to explain it to you.

It's not logical at all. If the rules committee intended to penalize interference with your own disc, they wouldn't have written "another players disc" in 804.03 D. If everything that you are allowed...
