You may need to able to follow through in many situations inside 30m for safety- slippery snow covered ground, steep hillsides, etc. I don't think I'd sign up for a sanctioned event ever again if something like this were passed. Anyone else feel we need an iPhone/Android App with "status" updates for PDGA rules changes so we know when they change in the middle of a round?
Seems a bit like overreacting . I believe they would have a safety loophole for hanging out on an icy cliff face while throwing. And we were talking about adults not juniors. And really depending on the lie after the basket I usually try and run it inside 100'. It would get rid of the flying, floundering, most of the times cheating (in almost every tournament I've been in and in casual rounds) art of jump putting. And before you say it sounds like jealousy on my part that I can't jump putt, I can, probably not as graceful as people that only do it and most times I can't tell if the disc left my hand before my foot did. I'd have to have someone let me know.

This^If you want to get rid of the jump putt,and say it wasn't an intended shot,then all these shots would have to go also,they aren't the intended throws of a disc.

This is the best rules change proposal ever. Jump putts are incredibly difficult to call, this would really help with that.
