Am I the only one who thinks the Feldberg style walk through jump put is sketchy? I was watching DG Monthly from Tinicum and it looked like Schwebby was planting his foot in front of his mini on every put he threw before the disc left his hand.

Really, no one has an opinion on either side of this?

I just watched this and stopping it at the point where his lead foot touches and it does appear that the disc was still in his hand. JUSTSAYING

Always thought it looked wrong......... not sure how anyone can be consistent when you're basically releasing while airborne.

Totally agree, if you look closely the heel of his forward foot is moving down, which means he already has put weight on the ball of his foot while the disc is still in his hand.

I've felt the pain of not calling a foot fault at a tourney, and paid the price... It wont happen again.
That is a foot fault. [-X

sorta reminds me of how the "traveling" call in pro basketball has been so watered down that the players are taking 3 full strides before a dunk and getting away with it. :?
can anyone say "instant replay?" or its being reviewed by the refs.... :idea:
