Today at the game, a thrower used his non-throwing arm to create a space (as in leaning toward the marker/box-out using arms) before making the throw. Neither of us were totally clear on the rules at the time so we let it go. After reading the rule below, it would've been a throwing (thrower) foul. Am I correct at interpreting this rule?
4) Any contact initiated by a thrower with the body (excluding arms and legs extended from the midline of the body) of a legally positioned (XIV.B.3) marker is a foul on the thrower.
A marker making incidental contact on the thrower's throwing hand (from the maker's perspective) while the thrower is faking his throws. It is not a big whack on the hand but rather a simple touch. The thrower does not release the disc and continues working on his fakes. Would the thrower be correct in calling it a foul if he feels the contact was not incidental? The rule says:
(1) A throwing foul may be called when there is non-incidental contact between the thrower and marker. The disc in a thrower’s possession is considered part of the thrower.
Does it all come down to the understanding of what a non-incidental contact is?
