I believe these forums are the “go to” source the rules committee relies on when making their decisions.

To a not insignificant degree, yes. It's just about the only place where discussions can remain civil and sober.

However, remember that the RC does not make the final decision on rules; that's the Board of Directors.

I would agree that both the RC and BOD should spend a few moments here. (Pains me to say...even the smaller basket thread) This can be a decent cross section of intelligent, experienced resources, from both a tournament and recreational player standpoint. Certainly not saying we are correct or any kind of supreme authority, but the insight here can be a nice tool in the box of one of those committees.

This is basically a beta test site for rules and potential rule changes.

even the smaller basket thread


That seems a bit sadistic. 😁

Totally looking forward to the PDGA codifying BBQ language into the rules about baskets!

About 44 mins in, Chris is asked about step/jump putting.

If you're jump or step putting forward, your first contact point after the release must touch the lie. If you're jumping or stepping sideways, you can start on the lie and end behind the arc or start behind the arc and end on the lie. All observers need to do is determine whether the thrower touched the lie before, after or during the throw and stayed behind the arc for the non-lie contact point before or after release.

Honestly if we are using the pad dimensions for close to contact with disc/lie, I would like to see players carry a Mini that has a rubber pad in dimension or carpet piece/cheaper turf pad attached to the mini on the edge of the mini in middle of the pad, if they are not using former disc lie. This way we know for sure the leading foot is in the right spot.

*Hands Raised* I am lousy at breaking the rules!

The people who do it practice extra to do something that's not needed. Talk about a wasted effort.
