Then would you say that the correct call in this case, if both sides agree that the disc was not catchable, would be that the turnover stands?


To me, allowing the turnover to stand, in a way, condones dangerous plays as long as it doesn’t affect the outcome of the play.

Two important points here.

1. Rule 1.2:

It is trusted that no player will intentionally break the rules; thus there are no harsh penalties for inadvertent breaches, but rather a method for resuming play in a manner which simulates what would most likely have occurred had there been no breach.

2. There will be a new section in the Appendix (to be released early next year) with the following:
[size=3][i]B8.2. If there are repeated Dangerous Plays from a team, or there is an egregious Dangerous Play, team Captains and Spirit Captains should meet to discuss how to address this. This could include:
B8.2.1. Calling a SOTG stoppage.
B8.2.2. Discussing options for avoiding future Dangerous Plays.
B8.2.3. Changing the outcome of a play, even if that outcome is not in accordance with a specific rule.
B8.2.4. Not allowing the relevant player/s to continue playing that game.
B8.2.5. Requesting a member of the Tournament Rules Group to attend the remainder of the game.[/i][/size]
