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...

If the pros are always just saying what they are "supposed" to say in interviews, why have them at all? It's what is wrong with so many other sports, that are also big business. Disc Golf isn't big...

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...

Just a word of caution, when referencing "old" incisents. Back in 2008, we had a different rule book. Not that I think it makes a difference here, just a friendly reminder that just because something...

I'm guessing I was confused by his use of the word "refuse" if that is the case. To me it doesn't seem that anyone refused anything. But as I read it, it's only a courtesy violation if you don't move...

So are you saying that the player who threw the disc, should get a courtesy violation for not asking them to move? If not, I don't see where anyone refused to do anything.

Why would you need to define "directional aid"? the definition is pretty much in the words them selves. An item used to aid in direction. When I answered, I hadn't watched the video, and after...

How would you say that it is "directly assisting in making the throw"? At the most, it could be argued that it was indirectly assisting. Did you even read the rule you quoted?
