Scenario: As the thrower pivots, his marker tries to move with the thrower but is obstructed by a third player. The marker calls “pick”. The thrower, not having heard the call, a second later, starts his throwing motion and throws an incomplete pass. The intended receiver, who had heard the pick call and stopped, says the pick call affected possession.
Question: does the marker's pick call count as a “call against the thrower” per 16.2.1?
This is important for determining whether play stopped immediately at time of call (16.1) or after possession is established (16.2).
16.1. Whenever a foul or violation call is made, play stops immediately and no turn over is possible (unless in situations specified in 15.9, 16.2, and 16.3).
16.2. If the foul or violation:
* 16.2.1. is called against the thrower and the thrower subsequently attempts a pass, or
* 16.2.2. is called when the thrower is in the act of throwing, or
* 16.2.3. is called or occurs when the disc is in the air,
then play continues until possession has been established.
