yes, iv'e seen the inside out wedgie. i like the ruling, it is progress, and disables a lot of the sss wizards, and gumputters from some players that actually aim for the basket. now if they'd just get rid of jump putting.
Jump putting isn't going away. It's an exciting play, and it's difficult to tell, even upon slow-motion video review, whether a good jump-putter's foot leaves the ground before the disc is released. Most good jump putters use the jump as more of a follow through.
I thought most of the changes were good ones. The casual relief change was especially good, although I wish they had extended the opportunity for taking one-throw penalty and going back on the line of play for all situations, not just for casual relief, although a savvy player will know how to make that work anyway.
The new hole-out rule is a giant leap backwards. The BoD and RC had a chance to simplify and clarify the rule by allowing the extremely rare DROT (disc resting on top). Instead, they left holing out more up to interpretation than ever before. Two discs could be wedged in the basket....one would count because no one saw how it got that way, and the other wouldn't count because someone saw it get that way. This rule is very open to abuse, and it's probably the most important rule in the book....holing out is fundamental to the way we keep score. I hope the BoD sees clear to fix this abomination, but I fear we're stuck with it for at least a year.
