Players put their own spin on flying disc sport at Raleigh tournament

Russell Lanier is an “ultimate” aficionado, one of thousands of fans at a national college championship of the fast-moving disc-throwing sport in Raleigh.

A player and coach of a youth team, Lanier’s favorite part of the game, commonly known as ultimate, is not the constant running, not the graceful arcs of the Frisbee, not the diving or leaping catches.

It’s the absence of referees.
