Foot fault?

Is Avery foot faulting at about the 4:00 min mark? Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

it appears his lead foot is stepping on his disc...not a mini. I want to say it is a foot fault but since it is a full size disc and not a mini marker..i don't think it is.

It doesn't matter. You can't step on whatever marks your lie. Whether it's a mini or the disc you threw.

Stance violation.

From PDGA:

Quote:
802.04 Throwing from a Stance



A.
A player must choose the stance that will result in the least movement of any part of any obstacle that is a permanent or integral part of the course. Once a legal stance is taken, the player may not move an obstacle in any way in order to make room for a throwing motion. It is legal for a player's throwing motion to cause incidental movement of an obstacle.

B.
When the disc is released, a player must:
1.
Have at least one supporting point that is in contact with the lie; and,

2.
Have no supporting point in contact with the marker disc or any object (including the playing surface) closer to the target than the rear edge of the marker disc; and,

3.Have all supporting points in-bounds.

It could be possible that the disc was just laying at a funky angle, I couldn't see it moving (a 99% clear indicator that his foot was in contact with it), but also can't conclude that it wasn't.

But if it was, well.....

Maybe that wasn't his marker. Maybe he put a mini down and laid his disc next to it and when he put his foot behind the marker it just happened to be on/near the disc too.

This is your answer, folks. From the angle of the video, it is impossible to tell whether he's making contact with the disc. If the angle of the disc and that it is sticking up at one end is your evidence, that's not enough.

Honestly though, I think it's impossible for him to have been stepping on the disc such that it angled up like that, from a complete stand-still, and no one, including himself, didn't notice. This isn't a matter of a run-up where it is just a mis-step that couldn't be corrected mid-stride. He's standing still. I think that lends credence to the "disc laying at a funky angle" theory.

Looks like he steps on grass then when he twists his foot it touches the disc....
