At a recent game a handler pivoted out of bounds (legally) and hucked deep aiming for the near side back corner.  The disc never came in bounds and his intended receiver jumped from in bounds and caught the disc but landed out of bounds behind the end zone.  This is a turn over of course but where does the defense put the disc in play since the disc never came back in bounds?  If the disc was untouched it would go back to the midfield sideline but we decided that it should go to the front end zone line since the offensive player did take off from in bounds and caught the disc but landed out.  Is that correct?

In the case of long throws like this where the entire flight path is out-of-bounds would it not be good advice to tell receivers to always attempt to dive from in bounds in an attempt to at least touch the disc in order to prevent a large loss of field position on the turnover?  I always tell defenders to avoid touching this kind of a long throw (unless the offense has a real chance of making a play) in order to gain field position.

What about a slightly different case?  What if the long curving throw would curve just enough to pass inside the back cone briefly entering airspace above the back corner of the end zone before landing out the back.  Would the disc be taken to the front end zone line again rather than the midfield sideline since it did, however briefly, pass through playing field airspace again?

Thanks for any clarification,

Hey Diaphanous,

First off, welcome to UT!  Smiley

You pose a good question.  In the scenario you've described, either foot can become the pivot.  In fact, I've seen this play a few times.  Righty picks up the disc with both feet on the ground, defender things their left foot is the pivot and then ... BOOM ... thrower executes a play with their right foot as the pivot (which gives them extra reach).  Perfectly legal.  A bit awkward for a righty to throw with a right pivot, but possible.  Very sneaky...

Doesn't really answer the root of the question, but at least gives some insight into your example.

Hello everybody, I have a technical question.

I've seen discussions about changing your pivot foot after it has been established, but when is the pivot established?

According to UPA rules:

"Pivot: The particular part of the body in continuous contact with a single spot on the field during a thrower's possession once the thrower has come to a stop or has attempted a throw or fake. When there is a definitive spot for putting the disc into play, the part of the body in contact with that spot is the pivot."

Unfortunately this definition if a little bit vague.

Just imagine the following situation:
A player gains possession of the disc with both feet planted on the ground, and a mark begins the stall with a hard forehand force (for a righty). The player holding the disc fakes a right forehand without moving either of his feet. He then switches the disc to his left hand, steps out with his left foot, and throws a lefty flick around the mark.
Is this legal?

According to the rules, the pivot is established after the first fake - but if neither foot has left the ground, which foot is considered the pivot?

It seems to me that the establishment of the pivot occurs once all but one body part has lost contact with the ground, at which point the body part still in contact with the ground is the pivot. That is to say, if I throw a fake without having moved either feet since gaining possession of the disc, then I should be able to established either foot as the pivot after the throw.

It depends on the condition what kind of foul it is whether it has occurred before or after the disc recieved. For getting the detailed information about what kind of foul it is click here: http://www.experts123.com/q/is-an-uncontested-foul-in-the-end-zone-by-a-defensive-player-a-score-or-does-the-disc-come-out-to-the-goal-line.html

Not us.

Although since starting the team, we've found out one of the GB Junior teams years ago were also called the Lemmings.

Cheers, Lucas.

 Smiley Lemmings are very good at this.

That's the rule, I believe, so it's really up to you to argue with the receiver the merits of them having best perspective.

That's the ultimate truth about these game.
