Ok, last post on this for a while (because I feel like I'm rambling). My opinion on reviews themselves, because I think that's where a lot of this difference of opinion comes from.

Disagree (kind of, i'll hit that at the end)

Technically, yes. It's not a penalty until someone calls it in the same way "that's not a foul because the ref didn't blow the whistle"...but we all understand that to be "that was a rules violation...

He STARTED behind the marker disc, he didn't stay behind his mark. That matters.

The rule is that 2 things have to happen, he has to be balanced and behind his mark...he's not behind his mark. ...

I'm going to say penalty on the assumption that when you "slid forward and bumped into the disc" you pushed the disc forward and slid past the point where your mark was. To Bill's point above, you...
