I understand that this is a theoretical discussion about the throwing rule, but to me this seems so hypothetical to be irrelevant. I cannot for the life of me see why anyone would do this in...

Chuck, the problem with bad (OB) design is not a problem with the rules and therefor shouldn't be fixed by rule changes.
First of all, the "problem" isn't and agreed upon prroblem with an objective...

The time starts when someone starts the clock. All players are required to look for the disc also. So while technically you may be correct, the implementation in reality is different. And as with the...

A lot more than I have lost discs on good shots, that's for sure. I am a bad enough player that even though there is a line out, I may easily miss it. And I have witnessed others do the same...

Ok, then take this example. Two players shank their drives deep into the same wooded area. Practically Identical shots. The first guy finds his disc, and now has to use several throws to get out of...

The "Throw again rule" would essentially eliminate the point of OB. Why would you ever take the OB penalty, unless the resulting lie would be better than what you could achieve from the tee? If you...

If the player is not getting a benefit, he isn't going to call it now, is he? That is a stupid argument to make.
If a stance violation (that may or may not have occurred) is not called, it's a...

Agree with MTL. If a throw is made from the lie, it's a throw, not a practice throw.

There is, in my opinion, nothing weird about holding worlds in the summer. I think maybe you look at it with US centric view, because a lot of mainly US sports call their winner the world champions...

That is a very subtle distinction that, if it is intended, should probably have been a lot clearer in the wording of this rule, if that is the intended interpretation. I would never argue that a disc...

I strongly disagree. The thrower is explicitly left out of the interference rule. Reading the rule you will have to assume that is the intention. You cannot assume that just because other players are...

How do you know that the player (McBeth) caught the disc to prevent it becoming lost, if he doesn't state that? And in this scenario, he doesn't prevent the disc from becoming lost in the context of...

actually sidewinder was correct. Mcbeth's lie would be point of contact.

As McBeth is not another player, this is the applicable ruling. And as the player himself cannot interfere with his own...

Obviously, you should rethrow right away, but I don't think the rules address your question directly. I would say that you have until you throw your next shot. And if you continue with the throw that...
