1  General / Ulti Talk / Picking up the disc after a turn over on: May 09, 2012, 04:01:50 PM
Sometimes after a turn over, a handler can take a very long time before picking up the disc. This often gives him the ability to set up the offense, making it harder for the defense. Somehow I am convinced that the handler has to walk straight to the disc and pick it up immediately after getting there, so that the defense can start the stall count right away. Very often though it occurs that a handler stands over the disc and sets up something, and the marker just has to wait until the handler decides to pick up the disc.

I am unsure about the rules on this point though? Anyone who knows?
2  General / Ulti Talk / The correct way to begin stall count on: May 05, 2011, 11:42:54 AM
Hey everyone.

I need some input on an issue regarding how to begin the stall count.

I have always believed that the correct way to do this is by saying "stalling" and then wait at least 1 second before saying "one". I have noticed a tendency though, that people often says "stalling-one" in almost one word which gives the disc holder 1 second less to pass the disc on. The way I see it, the right thing to do in this situation is calling "fast count".

However, in my opinion the rules are not clear on this point (section 9 in the WFDF rules). Though the interval between each word has to be 1 second, it is not described wether this regards the "stalling" as well or just the numbers. The audio file at section 9.1 in the HTML version of the rules tells me that I am right, but again... I think the rules can be interpreted differently.

What are your opinions on this?

Hi everybody.

As usual I experienced a disagreement on the rules at a tournament. I've been looking through the rules now, and I still can't find the answer, so I've decided to ask all you clever people in here :-)

Here's the situation: There's a deep huck which leaves the field area about halfway down the field, but stays in the air. At the end zone an offensive player leaves the field and touches the disc before it hits the ground. Now my question is: From where is the disc played from? From the position where the disc left the field at the first time or from where the offensive player touched the disc?
