You still need supporting point contact with the lie, so no obviously not.

2. Can you put anything else under other supporting points, or can you only place something under the body part that touches your lie?
This is the best summation of all of this anyone has posted. It's not clear at all. It's likely something they never thought of when making the rules. My thinking is that if it's ok at all to put something down, then I don't see the disc being a problem. But many disagree with me, and there's really nothing definitive to say either of us are correct or not.

Is this something that players are really wanting to do, or is this all just hypothetical? If players are trying to do it, then it probably needs to be addressed. If not, then we can probably just argue it on the Internet.
