Here's the situation: our team turned over the disc in our end zone. The player I was checking picked up the disc, carried it to the goal line, established pivot, and threw the disc. I called violation because it wasn't tapped into play. My opponent and someone else on their team disagreed, and said it was convention to tap the disc in, but not a rule. So I looked it up:
II R 2. A disc is live when players are allowed to move and the disc is subject to a turnover, but the thrower cannot make a legal pass (e.g., walking the disc to the spot where it is to be put into play). For a live disc to be put into play, the thrower must establish a pivot at the appropriate spot on the field, touch the disc to the ground, and put it into play.
What am I missing???? Or was I correct?
