Rules

September 16, 2009

We had a few rules questions at practice, so I figured I would post them for those who want. First off, Kendall was right. It is 90 seconds between pulls.

  1. The receiving team must signal readiness to play within seventy seconds after the previous goal was scored.
  2. The pulling team must release the pull before the later to occur of:
    1. ninety seconds after the previous goal was scored; or
    2. twenty seconds after the receiving team signaled readiness.

The next issue that came up was the topic of the delay (pre-stall) count needed before a defender could start stalling a live disc that was the result of a turnover.

If the disc comes to rest on the playing field proper, a member of the team becoming offense must put the disc into play within ten seconds after it comes to rest. After ten seconds elapse, a defensive player within three meters of the disc may announce disc in, and then initiate and continue the stall count, but only if a defensive player has given audible warnings of ten and five seconds (the pre-stall)

Basically it says that if the defender hasnt given you 5 and 10 second warnings then he/she cannot start a stall count.  If I understand it right, the only exception to this is if the offense is standing right over the disc delaying on purpose.  In that case the defense can call a violation and if the offense doesn’t pick up the disc then the stall count can begin. I may have misinterpreted this if someone out in webland feels like correcting me.

Anyway, for you nerds, the full 11th edition rules can be found here.

Later,

David
