Ruebs –

I’ve definitely seen this play out on an Australian Nationals level – the disc being checked in too early is considered a ‘fault’ on the part of the Defender who checks it in, and I’d say a lot of people now play under that assumption.

Is that concept, that if the Defender checks in too early it’s his/her own fault if the Offense gains advantage, backed up by the rules?
