Without any further delay... My Vid!
« on: December 19, 2006, 02:46:52 PM »
Since there has been constant bashing and ridicule on this board over the past few days, i figured that i would post a video of my form.

.avi should be opened with windows media player.

The average thing is a bit misleading. I back-up the issues that he states about his old house. That house was always inconsistant and not by small amounts either. I hate boulevard too as i can't carry worth a bean be he'll average 2 teen. Mav nice game wish mine was half as clean. My only thought to Parkers words are you start low through the first few steps but pop up on the slide and release. Its gradual but possibly causing small amount of loss of leverage toward the target. Check messages.

i think what he meant was, I lean forward a touch at the line.

shoulders over knees, which i thought was increasing leverage.

Hm, you look pretty good, just two comments.

1. You really start with good knee bend but its not there at the line. If you keep the knee bend at the line your in a better position for leverage and a cleaner release.

2. Your timing is late (IMO from not starting hte ball on your first step in a 4 step approach). This could be the cause of #1 but if you are believing that the timing is a problem your way to fix it is pretty easy.


Overall you had a nice solid shot, i'd work on 1 and 2 if I were you but you looked good, I wish i was to that point.

Your timing is late & your shoulders come up at the foul line causing you to lose leverage.

Nothing special & certainly not at the point where you have the right to rip apart other's game.

Funny how you say this when your average is lower than his?

No need to bash him - we all make mistakes and the thing about FTT is pointless - you know everyone else posted like Eric's.

I would love to see your style buddy.

I never bashed him. I pointed out 2 possible flaws & said that he shouldn't rip on others when his game isn't perfect.

As for my game, There's a reason I'm not a professional. Between physical issues with my knee, and a lack of focus that prevents me from repeating shots, I've reached a plateau in my game.

But the saying goes "Those that can't do, teach". That's me. There's a reason that my league nicknamed me "Da' Coach".

Average ain't crap.

I've got a 234 average, does this give me the right to critique his game?  Eric's style is very safe and lends me to believe that he doesn't get fooled by a condition very often.  It's tough to get in too much trouble with a style like that.  Combine that form with a little accuracy, and voila!  Good job, Eric.
