Actually it is 803.04 B and C
I see what you are trying to say but either way it wasnt a foot fault. The disc came to rest in the basket the hole was over and I when to pick it up. It had nothing to do with balance.
According to the "rules" you could call someone on evey putt if they didnt "Demonstrate balance" the way that you think it should be done.
As far as im concerned, when the disc comes to rest in the basket the hole is over and I am going to pick it up.
Actually you must have controlled balance through your entire putt regardless if the disc has come to rest. For example: let’s say you putt and the disc comes to rest, but your leg has not yet come back to the ground; if you bring your leg down in front of the mini than you have foot faulted, even if the disc is already in the basket. Your entire motion is part of the putt. Both feet must be behind the mini after your putting motion regardless of the disc being at rest.
A follow-through after a putt that causes the thrower to make any supporting point contact closer to the hole than the rear edge of the marker disc constitutes a falling putt and is considered a stance violation. The player must demonstrate full control of balance before advancing toward the hole.
Huspen violates this every time he putts. His leg is in the air, then the disc comes to rest and he swings his leg forward in front of his mini and marches to the basket. I use to do this slightly and Mr. Stibal helped me correct this as he used to call me on it all the time.
As far as the other point, your foot cannot touch the mini while putting as it is a foot fault. You also cannot have your foot off to the side of the mini. My partner Mr. Stiers did this every putt on Saturday, but it was an Ice Bowl so I, nor the groups we played with, cared to call him out on it.
