Recently in a game, one of my teammates got stall counted out (reached 10).  In this situation, he had released the disc so it left some time for players to move around.

What ended up happening was that the disc came back, the marker didn't want to take the disc, but our defence had set up all ready.  Once the marker (who stall counted my teammate out) tapped the disc in and left, our marker started stall counting the live disc.

The other team told the marker to return back to 0, as the new thrower hadn't gotten there yet.

What is the correct protocol for this situation?

Note: I know that no one should have moved once the "stall" call had been made, therefore possibly eliviating this kind of situation.  But what could happen if the person who got stall counted out became the new marker?

Hey LeandraUF,

Welcome to UT!

In this situation, the defender who stalled the disc handler has the right to either take the disc him/herself, or tap the disc on the ground and then walk away so his/her team can set up.  If the defender chose to tap the disc, then a person from the other team (your team) can then pre-stall by counting from 10 - 1.  Once they have done that, they can then proceed to stall the disc (1-10) even if a member of the other team hasn't taken possession of the disc.

So, the other team was correct in that your teammate should return back to 0.  Had your teammate initiated and completed a pre-stall count, then it would have been fine for your teammate to continue his/her stall count.

Hope this helps.
