Change speed while walking the disc up?

Postby fitzie » Mon Jun 22, 2009 1:37 pm

I've heard recently that there is a rule stating you cannot change speed while carrying the disc to the line, but I can't find it.

For example, a turnover in the end zone (or out of bounds), offense starts walking the disc to the line with their defender walking beside them, but then sprints to the line and self-checks.

Is this a violation? And if it is, which rule?

:) my previous reponse to this has been deleted... as someone (correctly) pointed out that a disc out of bounds or in the endzone is not a stoppage of play, but the disc is still live, and hence does not require a check from the defensive team... hence... :) you better run to get into position where the disc went out of bounds and it's pefectly legit for the offensive team to use any speed (or combination of speeds) to get to the line and check the disc in :)

Thanks Fitz ;)
