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