He also points out that the rule states you have to release the disc before jumping, which people apparently don't know. The basic argument is that no matter how careful you are, it is not possible to release the disc, then jump. Feldberg argues that the only legal alternative is to walk through a putt.
I was able to watch the video also before it got pulled. I agree with the summary that Curt says. He also says that the walk through putt can be illegal also. Next time you are out watch people putt from outside the circle. I would say 100% of people lunge forward somehow while throwing the disc. Feldberg is saying this is going to be called this year.
He also went into a wierd balance issue. He said at major tournaments there have been people spotting foot faults. He says if you raise one foot off the ground you have to place it back down and maintain balance (no foot taps/or foot drags while moving forward toward the basket). It is wierd he would sink a putt place his left foot down then wait 3-4 seconds before moving.
It really sucks that this video got pulled. Feldberg wasn't just talking as a disc golfer he was talking as a Board Member. Having to pay to watch how our sport is going to be changed doesn't make sense. If anyone if friends with feldberg get him on here. I am sure there are tons of questions we all have for him.
