Passages to bring the disc to the brick mark

    Hi, I have observed a recurring play in even high-level matches where:

    1. The disc goes out-of-bounds, and the offense team calls “Brick”.
    2. An offensive player (#1) picks up the disc.
    3. #1 passes the disc to teammate #2 waiting on the brick mark.
    4. #2 waits for a check from a defensive player before the game restarts.
    While this speeds up gameplay, I haven’t found a rule explicitly confirming its legality.

    since the “Brick” call can be made by any offensive player and someone else can pick it up, the marker guarding #1 could technically anticipate their intent and immediately move to mark them at the brick mark.

    The current format, can potentially lead to unsportsmanlike conduct, as the defender marking #1 might constantly wait them at the brick mark assuming they will initiate the play.

    To prevent this situation, I propose introducing the requirement for a check on player #2, if he is not the player who picked up the disc. Until such a rule is implemented, could you please clarify the current interpretation of this situation?

    Thank you for your time and consideration.
