Following a discussion last weekend, I thought I'd point out something related to travels, maybe clearing up some misconceptions. The situation that prompted the discussion was a player catching a disc on the run, stopping, and backing up before looking to make a throw.
There is a misconception that after catching a disc, you have three steps to stop. This is wrong.
XV.C: . After catching a pass, the receiver is only allowed the fewest number of steps required to come to a stop and establish a pivot.
There is further discussion of changing direction, and (the source of the confusion) when it's permissible to throw before stopping and establishing a pivot. However, if you're running fast enough that it takes you ten steps to come to a stop, then you're allowed ten steps and your pivot is to be established wherever you stop after those ten steps. Unless you obviously take more steps to stop than were necessary, you do not have to back up. Also, if you're barely moving when you catch a pass, you do not get to take any steps to "slow down"
