i think if those people seriously ask themselves this question, the majority may come to the conclusion that setting their second foot down behind their marker may be worth avoiding all the hassle.

i know this because i'm one of those people. i prefer to 'not' set my foot down behind my marker to show balance, however, i do it anyway to avoid any kind of problem.
So as long as I set my foot back down I have shown balance? I can then move forward before the disc is settled? Just asking for clarification

in literal terms... as long as you have shown balance, you have shown balance.

sounds stupid but that's what it comes down too.

the most common way that people show balance is to have both feet planted behind their marker before proceeding forward.

obviously, the above is done without flailing their arms all over etc...

look up the mike c video. he showed balance by not setting his second foot down behind his marker. he threw his disc, left is off foot in the air, pulled a yo-yo out, did a trick, then proceeded forward

Neither setting your foot down og whatever the disc does has anything to do with it. You can show balance while in a hand stand, though it would probably be an awkward putting stance.

How would a one legged player show balance, if it was required to put two feet on the ground to show balance?

No. You have either shown balance or not.
Whether that means putting your foot down, wrapping your leg around your head or melting down your gold watch with your Bic lighter in order to fashion a trumpet to play the "I have balance" fanfare -is irrellevant.

Balance is balance. Demonstrate it before you move forward past your marker.

Its really only hard to understand that rule if you don't want to.

If the player is constantly moving forward I call that as a falling put. If he is standing on one foot with balance I say it is good.

I am one who's putting follow through leaves me with one foot in the air extended behind me. I usually do a quick toe tap behind my lie with my extended foot or stay in that stance for two or three beats, before stepping forward.

I believe as long as your follow through is not a continuous motion directly into your walking past your lie, you have demonstrated balance.
