Hey there, do you have a rule that you wish to discuss or a rule that you wish to clarify because you often see this rule being ignored or used improperly. Then let us know.

Rule of the Week: The sidelines are actually out of play. If a player catches the disc while standing on the line they are out. A players first point of contact after catching the disc must be on the playing field. A player with one foot in bounds and the other out of bounds (straddling the line) is considered out of bounds.

Tonight we had a situation where Dave made a defensive block of the disc just outside the endzone. The disc remained in flight and he caught the disc in the endzone resulting in a point scored. In the rulebook, under Section XI-A (Scoring), it sates the following:

"A goal is scored when a player catches any legal pass in the end zone of attack. (Note: This rule legalizes the Callahan goal and the self-caught tipped pass)."

Is this the only reference to what happened tonight and what the heck is the Callahan goal?

P.S. Great play Dave!

"Callahan goal" is a pass caught by the thrower after it has been tipped. No idea WHERE the name of it came from, but it is a legal play.

To my understanding i thought TIP plays were illegal unless it was accidental.. Reading through the rules i have seen nothing that stats a PURPOSLY TIPPED DISC is an illegal play.

A pass thrown by the other team in their own endzone can be caught by the defending team and counts as a score. In the case of Dave having blocked the pass and then catching it in the endzone ... I see no difference. It will probably be the only point our team ever scores without anyone assisting on it. Definitely a great play by Dave.

Just to clarify, when you suggest "straddling" does that apply to catching the disk on the ground, or does that also refer to a player coming down from an airborne catch with one foot out of bounds. Is this the same as football where a player coming down has to drag both feet in bounds?

Say the rule in football applies and both my feet are in, but since I wear baggy shorts and my nut sack touches the grass on the outside...would that be out of bounds?

In ultimate it is the first point of contact that matters. If the first point of contact is your left foot, and it is in bounds, and then your right foot comes down out of bounds you are deemed in bounds. If you are standing with both feet on the ground, one in bounds and one out of bounds you are deemed out of bounds.
