This incident happened during our game this week and we're hoping to get some clarification from the pros! :)
The offense had the disc at about midfield and there were two guys (O1 and O2) near the end zone with their defenders D1 and D2). O1 makes a deep cut towards for the flick side of the end zone and beats D1. D2, seeing this and anticipating a huck to O1, switches off O2 and tries to go intercept the disc (which is now in the air). During this O2 also runs towards the disc and ends up cutting off D2 and boxing him out. D2 had to slow down in order to prevent himself from colliding into O2 and end up not being able to make a bid for the disc. O1 easily catches the disc because D2 was boxed out, but D2 feels that he could have reached the disc had he not been boxed out.
Is this a legit play or a blocking violation under XVI. H. c) (2)?
