Here's a rule that's always confused me:
The travel section (XVI.J.) states that a player travels if that player:
- speeds up, changes direction or does not stop as quickly as possible. (XVI.J.1.a)
EXCEPT, it is not a travel if the player releases a pass before the third ground contact. (XVI.J.2.b)
So, imagine a case where a player is walking at a constant speed. The player catches the disc and continues in the same direction at the same speed for two more steps and then stops and establishes a pivot. Is this a travel?
Instead, imagine the case where the player throws a pass after two steps (but before the third ground contact). Is it a travel?
