Yes, but in the text you posted the receiver is the offender. So indeed, either the disc goes to the offensive player or the disc goes back. While the defender has it in its hands...

Unless I misread the rules you posted of course (thanks for looking them up, these are indeed the rules I was referring to).
2  General / Ulti Talk / Rules - weird loophole? on: September 11, 2010, 05:48:29 AM
Here's a situation I have run into a couple of times:

- Thrower throws to a receiver
- Receiver's defender grabs the disc out of the air, some contact happens which we assume is not a foul
- Receiver calls a foul

Now, there are to my knowledge 3 ways to solve this (remember that we assume it is an unjust call):

- Foul is retracted: it is a turnover and the possession is with the receiver's defender
- Foul is uncontested: disc goes back because the offence didn't touch the disc (remember, we're talking unjust call, so we're not in a situation where you tackle someone miles before they can get to the disc ... we're talking minor contact or something similar)
- Foul is contested: disc goes back

Now here's the loophole: there is no advantage situation for the defender... Whether you contest or not, doesn't matter for the outcome.

So here's my questions for you rules-guru's out there:

1) What do I miss (e.g. can you make a double-foul call?)
2) How is this in UPA rules (above is my interpretation of the WFDF rules)?

I recently ordered ASICS Gel Lethal Ultimate IGS 5 cleats, which are basically rugby/lacrosse shoes. I read about many world class referees having these shoes as well as players of all levels. Since lacrosse/rugby and ultimate have in common that you don't actually use your feet (that much) for controlling the playing object (disc, (rugby) ball), the focus of these shoes is more on being lightweight and providing good grip.

I would recommend these to everyone playing ultimate. In the European Union they are hard to come by, since rugby/football (i.e. not meaning soccer) isn't a big sport in many countries. So look for a UK online shop and try the size of the shoe with Asics running shoes, since they have the same sizes as the rugby shoes.

Meanwhile, a new version is available in the US and Australia: Asics Gel Lethal Ultimate IGS 6:

Interesting stuff that DRY HANDS. I had never heard of it, but I'll be sure to try it soon. I also play with gloves, but I only do so when it is rainy or cold. I think that if you get used to playing with gloves it might negate the difference it makes. But I could be completely wrong here... at WUCC there were teams (okay, especially Japanese) playing with gloves while it was 35 degrees celsius and we were in the blazing sun Smiley So don't worry about it being frowned upon I would say Smiley

Indoor on grass or indoor on hardcourt?
6  General / Ulti Development / Re: Tips for team practices and throwing practice on: September 10, 2010, 07:15:30 AM
Interesting reads. I forwarded the bit about the endzone drill to someone who loves it (I seriously hate it, for exactly those reasons)... let's see what happens Smiley

More to the point: my usual off-season is highly dominated by a few months of no ultimate. Then I tend to start some fun hat tournaments, city leagues, the things that will revive my fun in the game Smiley. When that's done (usually winter time) it is back to 2 or more throwing sessions per week, focussing on 1 throw for a couple of sessions (usually 2 weeks of time).

This year, due to a back injury which has been haunting me for a while, I am more into physio and gym activity I guess Sad
7  General / Ulti Talk / Re: I found a dvd and now i can't find it, maybe you guys know what it is..... on: July 26, 2010, 05:48:43 AM

I hope you have been able to place your order. It sounds like a mistake on my side if the form isn't in English. It just uses PayPal so it should be easily usable for people from around the world (and has been used by people from many countries). Please check if you are still experiencing the problem, and whether you can click 'English' somewhere.

I'll check to see that the default selected language is English as well. If you want to, you can contact me easily at [email protected]

You can also try our DVD, available on http://www.howtothrowlikeapro.com. There's sample footage on the site as well.

Sounds like the traveling will have to become part of the package, either for you or the other team in the Caribbean Wink
10  General / Ulti Talk / Re: What Frisbee/Disc to buy? on: May 04, 2010, 03:05:54 AM
And watch the type of print. There is something which is called an 'overprint' I think, which is printed over the ribs that are on the disc. It makes it uncomfortable to throw. The one you've linked is fine, it is a normal center print.

As for color, I would only go for white or bright orange (depending where you live). White is good in every type of weather except snow, then I'd use bright orange. Never go with dark blue, light blue or green as they tend to vanish in the grass, sky or trees. They are simply harder to spot (even in mid flight). Yellow is doable, but like I said, I prefer white.

Hope this helps!
11  General / Ulti Talk / Re: New to ultimate, can I get some help? on: May 04, 2010, 02:58:48 AM
You can also check out www.whatisultimate.com. I usually send people there when they want to know stuff about ultimate frisbee.

Good luck!
12  General / Ulti Strategy / Re: Cutting help on: April 28, 2010, 05:47:09 AM
Little extra example from last night's match. I played handler and was at the side of the field, disc at the middle handler. I was trying to give him an option, but my defender stepped in (I was cutting backwards so to speak, to the level of the disc).

Then the middle handler pumpfakes me (good call obviously), and goes for a cutter instead. Since my guy is now behind me, I have about 5 meters on him, so I just bust deep. The swing comes, I am at 100% of my speed, level to the disc .... point.

This is also due to my defender not wanting me to get the disc, since I have a good deep threat with my throws. This makes it easier for me to get the defender under me, so I am open on a deep option.

Hope this helps!
13  General / Ulti Talk / Re: How many total times do you think you've thrown a frisbee? on: April 28, 2010, 05:38:47 AM
I have no idea how many times, but I am certain it is way past 500.000... When I just started playing, we threw for a couple of hours every single day I think, with a couple of friends Smiley
14  General / Ulti Events / Re: Guinness World Record Ultimate Marathon Game on: April 26, 2010, 10:24:04 AM
Fantastic! Hope you guys pull it off this time. Bring loads of water though, 6 hours of ultimate is a long time to go without a sip! Smiley
15  General / Ulti Strategy / Re: "Ten" or "stall" at the end of stall count on: April 22, 2010, 05:02:58 AM
You can count 'stalling one, two, ...' or 'stall one, stall two'. The difference is that the latter is easier to prevent a fast count. I have a basketball referee diploma and one of the things we learned is counting to 8 seconds. You won't believe the amount of difference we had, while we were all certain we were roughly right. Some people had 11 seconds, some 5!
