do people really throw without using laces???
It's Oklahoma. Everything they do is backwards.
LOL reminds me of the jim carrey movie, ACE ventura ! when The bad guy was a old futbol player that turn into a woman because some other guy place the ball with the laces out
i just dont get how you can throw it well without using laces... lol
This must be an American Football thing
Laces? It makes a difference?
Yes its an american football thing, I dont know nothing about it either lol
For all of the non-yanks, when you throw an american football your finger tips are meant to be touching the "lace" on the ball, so when you throw the ball your fingertips are the last part of your hand to leave the ball, thus making the ball spin and travel through the air.
Atleast that what how I think its meant to happen, someone correct me if I'm wrong
yes like how peyton and carson palmer do it
how in the world sam bradford can throw like that amazes me lol
Thanks for helping me out!
Played rugby for years at school and never heard anything about laces being an issue.
Just never forward!
What is that hanging between his mid-rif area? I've always been puzzled by why it is there, what do they need it for etc?
its so they can keep their hands dry from sweat, rain, etc
Texas Tech's quaterback Cody Hodges threw the same way in 2005. He said in an interview, "that is just how I have always done it". I guess it works for some.
Sorry, that just looks weird.
Yes, it does.
Those of us with small hands, and mine are size 9, need the extra purchase that the laces provide.
If you can palm a basketball however, I don't see a problem.
Now I feel quite stupid; I did not know that hands had sizes. How do you measure your hand size?
Here ya' go.
With all the other accessories/protection American footballers wear I'm guessing that's a bar of soap in his pocket. To cleanse himself in the unlikely event his skin should make contact with the ground.
i can throw without using the laces but i'm not a pro and can't throw 50 yards like they do. Rugby confuses the heck out of me, it looks very unorganized.
i really dont understand how
1) people can prefer rugby over football
2) cricket over baseball
ive watched both and they make no sense to me lol
^ its just which country you are from. those are English games and all the English settlements play them.
I have to say, I find Rugby far more enjoyable (to watch) than American football, and I'm from America. There is nothing like watching a bunch of people knocking the snot out of each other without pads. If I'm playing, however, I much prefer American football.
thanks for the explanation i would have guessed the tight pants otherwise
(can anybody explain why american football player wear what looks like cycling pants ?
^ haha i would like to know too. the majority of ball sports on grass the players wear shorts but Baseball and American Football players seem to wear pants?
Granted, I have never been interested in sports, but I had to read the thread just to find out what "throwing without using laces" meant. I only watch one sporting event a year, the Super Bowl. I TiVo the game so I can start watching about an hour in, so I can FF through the game to get to the commercials.
I think Mythbusters needs to get ahold of this "throwing without using laces" thing.
I'm not an expert, but in baseball, I would assume it's a safety issue, as players may need to slide into base.
