Playing the disc from where it lands

Postby faceguy » Sat Jun 11, 2011 12:18 pm

I faced a team where the handler on a turnover would stand about one meter up field of the disc, set a pivot, and then pick up the disc from a meter behind him, effectively gaining a meter in distance from where the disc landed. Is this allowed and what is the call that should be made if it isn't? I just let it happen because I wasn't sure and I didn't really care about them gaining such a small amount, I'm just now curious.

I'd read it as...

UPA 11th Edition...
....
...
XIII. The Thrower
A. If the disc is on the ground, whether in- or out-of-bounds, any member of the team becoming offense may take possession of it.
1. If an offensive player picks up the disc, that player must put it into play.
2. If possession is gained at the spot where the disc is to be put into play, the thrower must establish a pivot at the spot of the disc.
...
...


But I'm sure if Mortaki is around he can give a more definitive answer

Pretty sure Blue's right, and the call would be "travel".

Oops, sorry for my delinquent absence....

... Although THAT is about definitive as it gets.
