I'd make that "comes to rest, solely supported by the target".

Better to leave it vague as David did.. Adding solely makes it more challenging if your disc is partially or fully resting on another disc in the bottom of the basket, as an example.

Mine was a hastily-written example, in part because it's futile. Obviously, when I'm named Rules Czar, my advisory committee can word it a little tighter, with the goal of making it simple and clear and meeting that goal, without splitting hairs on how it arrived to its resting position, or elaborate explanations of the reasoning (a tiny fraction of the disc must be or have been in the cylinder, so it's good, as opposed to more than half the disc is in the cylinder, but arrived wrong so it isn't). Something simple that you can tell a beginner: If the basket catches it, it's good.

But since my application for Rules Czar is still pending, as it has been for several decades, and there are a ton of new rules to digest, we should probably get onto them, instead of one of my pet dream-world rules.

No, you don't get off that easy.

If you are going to be Rules Czar, you need to do everything yourself and get it all perfect the first time. You should also be Competition Czar and Tech Standards Czar at the same time so no one can mess up your dream.

I don't want to be Rules Czar to get it all perfect. I just want to change 3 things that are annoying me, lock them in for 20 years, and abdicate.

Though that campaign platform probably isn't helping my chances, which were pretty slim to begin with.

BTW, I don't see why TDs couldn't ask for a waiver from the PDGA to use some version of the "Any disc supported by the basket and above is holed out". No problem with ratings from my end. Certainly a better rules waiver than some of the Throw and Distance penalty hazards TDs submit for waiver.

Or "No Overhand" waivers.....

Of course, nobody will, because they're such rare occurrences that they're not worth the trouble. Certainly so infrequent as to not affect ratings.

You'd think that same rarity would make me acquiesce quietly. But you'd be wrong.

So disc golf is going the way of the NFL and talking about "breaking the plane" now? Gross.

What about a disc that comes to rest on the top of the target?
