Dropping the pull

Postby nfpete » Thu May 29, 2008 8:31 am

Hello all,

So last night we're about to pull to the other team when our handler drops the disc. He wasn't in the act of throwing per se but our team had taken the line and he was about to start his wind up. World's crappiest pull or pick it up and pretend nothing happened?

VIII.B.3. The pull may be made only after the puller and a player on the receiving team both raise their hands to signal their team’s readiness to begin play. A team must have a minimum of two players and a maximum of seven players on the field in order to signal readiness. The pull occurs when the puller throws (II.T) the disc after signaling readiness.

II.T. Throw: A disc in flight following any throwing motion (including a fake) that results in the thrower losing contact with the disc.
II.T.3 The act of throwing is the motion that transfers momentum from the thrower to the disc in the direction of flight and results in a throw. Pivots and wind-ups are not part of the act of throwing.

So, if your handler dropped the disc following any throwing motion, it's the world's crappiest pull. If there hadn't been any throwing motion (as II.T.3), pick it up and pretend nothing happened.
