Stance violations are all based on what you are doing 'at the point of release'. What you do before and after is not important - except within 10m of the basket, where you must demonstrate balance...

I completely agree. And this shows what an excellent move it was for discraft to get him.

We're being given the 'Journey of the Talented Newcomer', which is a compelling narrative.

I've never come across this breakdown of types of sport, I like it, it makes sense. Have you got any further reading on analysis of sport within this framework?

Toddl has covered most of what I was going to say. But a couple of further or clarifying points.

The definition of a supporting point actually uses the word contact:

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.

In the scenario being discussed the disc isn't considered a supporting point, it is considered an object that...

I hadn't thought of this angle, so I've read up a bit. You're right that collegiate sports (in the US) have to be amateur. But, and I didn't know this myself, the Olympics have allowed professionals...

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...

Yeah, I've wondered what the actual value is of having the pro/am distinction.

What would happen to MA1? Cap it at 970?

Could you explain, I'm not following. Are you saying that to throw a flat shot the release angle should be slightly hyzer?

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...

Rules say you can't move an obstacle unless it is on or behind your lie. As soon as the obstacle is no longer on or behind your lie... you can't move it. Put it down!!! [emoji16]

No it's not.

Your hand can hold the disc, and at the same time the disc can be touching the basket.

A stance violation only occurs at the point of release.

Your hand is both a supporting...
