This.

And in addition, there is a big difference between a generalised crowd murmur, and your card mate talking 10' away from you. The brain responds very differently to the two sounds.

If a branch is actually in the basket then you can remove it at any point. Whether it was there at the start of the round or fell in part way through - it doesn't matter. Todd's post #4 addresses...

Hey! thanks for pointing that out. I like the wording change. Behind the lie is a bit too broad, and doesn't address that people also stand to one side of the lie.

So interestingly, prompted by...

Whenever rule questions come up on the FB group, I find I am often simply posting the relevant Q&A. The RC have done a good job collating all the useful clarifications.

That link gets the cause of turn and fade wrong. It repeats the old 'air moves faster over one side of the disc than the other' fallacy. The centre of lift being in-front or behind the centre of...

Not true here in the UK. The scene is small here. Non-sanctioned events are uncommon, maybe only a few leagues.

Every time I throw a disc I am being held up by the ground, directly assisting my throw by allowing me to push against it to generate rotation.
