OK this should be the right thread!
I am at least old enough to remember when radio newsreaders could ACTUALLY READ!!!
I listen in to radio program Talkin Sport occasionally (aka talkin Bulldogs), usually if driving, or working on computer from home. The last few years I have been continually astonished at the dyslexic stuttering young (oh yes, always young, always female) "newsreaders' who that radio station employs. Actually I suspect they are not employed at all but just work experience (aka free scab labour) but they cant read a single bulletin without stopping, correcting themselves, thinking over some word for 15 seconds, etc etc. It's an embarrassment. Is there some sort of casting couch at play here? Or has reading English really become so challenging?
Rant over!

I was agreeing to the previous post that mentioned improving the angle you tool.

Overall a controlled draw improves the angle(well it improves the level of difficulty for a fixed goal post position) for 50% of kicks above a straight shooter and improves direction control at the same time.

What a tosser type response, mind you at your age it is probably the only type of "tossing" you are capable of.

This is why i mentioned Daryl Halligan in a previous post, not many kickers can generate a "consistent" controlled fade as it is the hardest kick to get right.

Many kickers who use a draw actually find it easier to kick on the side where a "draw" doesn't improve the angle as they have a reference point of just outside the right or left post(obviously depending on which foot you use) as a marker. On the improved angle side that same goal post is a little further away and doesn't work as well as a reference point.(for many not all--- for example Thurston with his massive draw kicking style was not too bad from the "better angle" side)

"Obviously" you can use the near/left goal post as a marker(for a right footer) kicking from the left side but that brings the far post into play anyway and clutters the mindset before kicking.
Here we go again with the expert at being wrong defending another buIIshlt post. I couldn't go through another game of chess with you Mr pigeon.:rofl:
What is it with you guys younger than me that assume a 58yo can't get it up? That's now 2 of you in the last week or so.
I wouldn't swap my sex life with any of yours for a million dollars and you would gratefully pay a million to have mine...if you had the money.
If only you knew how pathetic your lives really are.:rofl:
Wankers.

I had let it go but now you have started with the name calling again. It's quite an assumption you have made at the same time calling us out for assuming you cant get it up ;) As I said before it doesnt count if you have to inflate your girl to have a sex life :)

First of all "where am i wrong", all you did was "technically" correct the wording of my reply for your own lame "shytes and giggles", you very well understood what i was trying to say and on top of that, the reply is more a "worded like" to a previous post bringing up the "angle" comment.

Secondly if you consistently and persistently instigate crap that is pathetic at best expect the weak ass "can't get it up replies"

Hot tip i prefer to save my quality replies for people that matter and to impress the women who need more than good looks to win them over.(yeah that is really me---not)

Mate you have no idea about rugby league or what you’re talking about! Marty was one our better players tonight. Played with his hand still not 100% yet gave 100%. Many pundits consider Marty & AFB up there with the best props in the NRL yet you come here & say Marty’s playing on reputation? Like I said you have no idea!
mate get over yourself

i have plenty of ideas

Maybe I got it wrong.

Ah well hopefully @MissKate can find some forgiveness for my poor comprehension skills.

At least she probably wont go through a stack of old posts of mine to give them a disagree rating.

lol. Dear oh dear...such personal attacks. I'll turn the other cheek though.
I now see why the bigotry flows openly on this site... very sad. Your trolling isnt amusing its just sad mate.
