There is no delay of game call for the pull.
However rule 7.1.1. says: “Teams must prepare for the pull without unreasonable delay.”

If teams fail to comply with this then this is something that team captains should discuss.

There are specific penalties in the Appendix regarding time limits during the pull, but these would only apply if the league/tournament specified that the WFDF Appendix applies (and there were timekeepers for the game.
