Player A, who has a tough footing for their lie who is throwing asks another player to stand somewhere and catch them if they happen to slip when throwing, so they dont get hurt.

Is this a violation of the rules?
I say yes...you?

Yes i think as it would fall under 803.06 A unplayable lie.

and in the end you both may end up getting hurt trying to catch someone.

Once the disc is gone and the player is outside the circle the throw is done.....

That said, Player knowing someone was there to catch them lets Player A go for it that little bit harder.

And no Adrian, It is not an unplayable lie at all

the lie was playable, the player could have taken a different stance, or declare it a dangerous lie...

It couldn't have been any more dangerous than the lie you had on #10 in the morning.....that was sketchy
