Pick call

Player on offense runs outside the field line, then returns inbounds and catches the disc. The
player does not run around a player nor obstruct her checks path. This occured around the
endzone line. After the disc was caught, a player not involved in the play calls a pick for the
player. I suppose my main question does being outside the field lines illegal or considered to be a
pick? I'm also assuming only the player involved in a pick can call pick. Correct? Thanks

Being out-of-bounds is definitely not a pick. Being out-of-bounds is not illegal in the circumstances you've described, either.

"I'm also assuming only the player involved in a pick can call pick."

Only the defender(s) who is/are picked can call a pick, yes. You cannot call a pick on behalf of someone else.

This is a little confusing to read (a lot of "players" cropping up). Who called a pick on whom for whom? In general, a pick can occur without affecting the play.

Thanks for the info. A male player on the defensive team called a pick for an newbie female
player - who was also on d. He said he called pick because girl on offense ran outside field
lines and the girl on d "can't follow offensive player out of bounds so she's obstructed". I
didn't understand his explanation.

Yes, agree as above that this is definitely not a pick.

I'm very curious, though... why does this person think that a D player cannot follow an offensive player out of bounds?

unless of course if the offensive player digs a pit before the game and covers it with branches and grass, and then jumps over it, in an attempt to get the other player to fall into the pit..
