However, the way the holing out rule reads, the disc must be supported by the inside or bottom wall of the basket. Wedgies are mostly supported by the sides of the basket wires not what we would call the inner contact points of the wires that face the pipe. So technically, the current wording would make most and maybe all wedgies no good. The RC is considering how they want this to go for the upcoming rules update effective 2013.

1) must not enter through the bottom or side of the tray,
2) must come to rest with the geometrical center of the disc flight plate inside the inner cylinder,
3) must come to rest with some part of the disc touching any wire that constitutes any portion of the bottom of the tray, or
4) comes to rest supported by the chains.
So a disc could not be holed-out if it is supported only by the outer wall (including rim) of the tray or only by the center post. Discs that are wedged into the bottom (or bottom corner) of the tray would be OK if it is touching a support wire on the bottom of the tray (unless somebody saw it go in through the tray itself, instead of entering from over the rim). This would eliminate all wedgies that aren't touching any wire on the bottom of the tray, and it would also eliminate all that are balancing or hanging only supported by the rim itself, or hanging from other junk on the top of the basket.
