Uh, to my taste, that makes both the rulebook and the game worse than the status quo. All that to cure the problem of fraction-of-a-second footfaults?

I sure hope the rules committee concludes that the flaws in the current rule are tolerable, and leaves it alone.

The foot fault issue provides the opportunity to expand the throwing options in the game, remove the 10m putting circle and rule, and make it easier for throwers and the group to confirm legal stance. Those are pretty big benefits to just blow off. There typically won't be another major rulebook update for 2-3 years so there's no short term concern about changes.

Or maybe cuts back on follow-throughs and thus the most athletic full-force throws, expands the vague "demonstrate balance" rule all over the fairway, and exchanges the easily-discernible "line of play" for a 30x30cm imaginary box that makes it harder to confirm the legal stance.

Yeah, I know it's not a pending issue and perhaps it'll never be more than discussion board chat. I certainly hope not.

David, unlike the 2m debate you and I are in total agreement on this one.

Here's the deal, the RC will not stop until the issue is solved. The various options proposed and being considered will shrink rather than expand the game. Your response to my proposal simply brings up changes in what will need to be monitored but not reasons the option isn't viable. BTW, the original stance area in the rules was the circular area the size of the thrown disc not the current line of play so the 30x30 area would be a small nod to the original rule.

Not "simply". It looks to me like it brings up more things that are harder to monitor than the simple thing which is being "fixed". Just because the option's viable doesn't mean it's an improvement.

I've yet to see a proposal for fixing the problem of jump-putts that isn't worse than the problem. Come to think of it, I haven't seen the problem of jump-putts described in a way that compels fixing.

With any luck, that quest will last longer than my old body does.

Try earplugs.

Or another thread. I'm sure there are others around somewhere.
