    The thrower may touch a disc they have thrown, for example to prevent an
    opponent from catching it, or to tap it to a teammate.
    I dont see how is allowed, just seems unfair to me.

    Can prevent an immediate callahan at least. Should be allowed to at least touch it after throwing it.

    Also can be fun to try to fix a botched throw by tipping it again to your teammate.

    But if only this is to be disallowed, what’s the proposed rule?

    If the thrower touches the disc they have thrown before anyone else, it can no longer be caught by anyone on their team for a completion?

    Well, after you throw it you cant touch it, plain as that, if you do, like in basketball when you pick up your dribble, bounce it, and you cant touch it anymore otherwise its a travel, so my guess would be turn at the point the trower touched it after throwing it.

    I think the only exception to the rule should be if you haven’t moved your pivot. The disc barely slipping out of your hands when faking a throw or even just moving it around and then immediately recovering it without moving your feet doesn’t seem turnover worthy to me.
