Thank you, Steve.

It actually happened - in an NT final - and some think it was not legal and some think it was. That alone makes it at least a little more than nothing.

You and others keep saying that. But I am pretty sure the rules say it is the same. I am open to be corrected on that.

Maybe it should be started and ruled on by people who read the rules, and not the old boys club that clearly don't.

I think a lot of the discussion is missing the key point.

Does marking your lie change your lie?

As far as I can tell, the rules say no, it is the same lie. The mini marks the same lie as the...

No one is arguing that. Your lie is 30 cm behind your marker. The rules are pretty clear on that.

Go into the rules and find me the part that says marking your disc with a mini creates a new lie....

You are completely missing the point. Marking the lie is not changing the lie. I think the rules are pretty clear on this. It might move a disc width in the real world. But as far as the rules go,...

That is the point of my wobbling on the matter. I read that as meaning that, as far as the rules go, either way of marking, marks they same lie - for all lie technical purposes.

But the rethrow has to be made from the same lie as the first, does it not? And as such, is not a "new" lie.

The crux of the matter is whether the lie marked by the disc is the same as the one as...
