F) I just read the rulebook and it says that when it comes to a disc being partly OB that which ever side the majority of the disc is on that is what counts. So if the majority of the disc is in bounds then the disc is in bounds and vise versa.

Also E) You have something like 30 cm behind you lie unless there is an object that can't be moved directly behind your lie you can get on the other side of the object but still in line with your lie.

Yeah... Link that please. If any part of your disc is in bounds, then it is in bounds and you get relief away from the OB.

803.09 Out-of-Bounds

A. A disc shall be considered out-of-bounds only when it comes to rest and it is clearly and
completely surrounded by the out-of-bounds area. A disc thrown in water shall be deemed to be
at rest once it is floating or is moving only by the action of the water or the wind on the
water. See section 803.03 F. The out-of-bounds line itself is considered out-of --bounds. In order to
consider the disc as out-of bounds, there must be reasonable evidence that the disc came to rest within the out-of-bounds area. In the absence of such evidence, the disc will be considered lost and the player will proceed according to rule 803.11B.

Champion Kirby, you have 2 black aces? Wow, I'll definitely believe you're blind if that's true.

I have a graphic that proves otherwise

It has to touch inbounds, not the line.

Incorrect. If you are standing at the appropriate place to throw (your lie, in this case the tee box) and you throw your disc, it is a throw, regardless of the direction or distance the disc traveled. The Practice Throw rule, which is what you are referring to by mentioning any distance towards the target or in other directions more than 2m (not 6 feet), applies for discs launched from locations other than your lie and results in an automatic one stroke penalty.

The throw starts when you begin forward motion, so it is just a dropped disc if you slip during the reachback or before. But once you've started moving the disc forward after taking your stance, you are throwing, and it counts if you slip and the disc is released, regardless of the direction and distance traveled. Of course, the other members of your group should call a foot fault if you slip off the end of the teepad before releasing the disc, and then you get one warning for the round and a free rethrow.

As far as the tee being OB, tees are not normally considered OB in tournaments. If the TD says that tees are OB though, then they are OB. But if that happens, be sure and post that info so we can all know who this TD is.

no one said he was in the process of throwing. It says he was going to throw. If he slipped while standing on the box or even during reach back it is not a throw. Also I said 6 feet because it is nearly the equivelent of 2 meters, many people do not know meters well in the US.

Quote:
 Practice Throw: During a round, the projection of a disc of a distance greater than two meters, or of any distance toward a target, intentional or not, which does not change the player’s lie, either because it did not occur from the teeing area or the lie, or because the player had already thrown competitively from the teeing area or the lie. Throws that are re-thrown in accordance with the rules are not practice throws.

WHERE in the rulebook does it say that?
