Finnish soccer spectacle - Amazing backflip penalty-kick!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tmMZv62BX4&feature=player_embedded

Saw that on Sky Sports News this morning, he only got away with it because it was a Youth Game, if they did that in the pros...YELLOW CARD.  police

You mean to say that the rules actually prohibit backflips? Really? Huh!

Well it's not a backflip but have you seen this one then?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnKW-yVTSrM&feature=player_embedded

Is that against the rules too? Cheesy

As far as the Laws of the Game are concerned, no, but it would be a yellow for showboating of sorts (I had a mate get a yellow for nearly the same thing). lol.

Saw that goal last night as well, while he didnt recieve a yellow, his manager took him off the field directly after he took the shot (he had only been subbed in 2 minutes prior).

Quote
CHEEKY

Whats the psychology behind someone who 'talks in riddles' ?

"A couple of people on sites I go on only seem to communicate, either in riddles, or by using famous quotations to express how they're feeling. It's quite annoying..confusion-making, because of course, you could take what they say a number of ways. Its like they absorb energy by making you 'think' about what they are saying. Frustrating because you can't conclusively understand.

If any -what's the psychological profile of this type of person? The 2 people I know who do this aren't youngsters though. (I think we can all talk gobbledy-gook in our teens & early twenties!)"

"People who talk in riddles, or quote others are usually self conscious. If someone feels the need to use another person's quote, they are usually trying to take the spotlight off themselves. Most people who talk in riddles are trying to confuse other people, because they are actually quite confused themself."

What?!? Why? He scored didn't he? Same with the backflip guy: he did a fancy move, thereby deking the goaltender and he scored! What's the problem? I thought they were both brilliant. Just like combat sports: protect yourself (or your goal) at all times.

They're just jealous because they can't do it!

Really it depends on the sport you are in. Backwards rotation is not necessarily a "back flip". A somersault is actually more accurate here. Now the sorta somersault and the like can be described as well.

The nomenclature of acrobatic movements began to get sloppy and imprecise especially with the advent of contemporary gymnastics and worse yet ice skating and then all the skating, free running, and the like.

The nerd in me wants to call it something like a running aerial back somersault on about a 45 degree angle ending in a loss.

We could get more precise and describe the use of his arms to generate the motion as well.

But in the end it is pretty cool.

Used to help coach and judge a sport where acrobatics were involved, so I gotta little caught up in the terminology.

I was trying to be funny more than rude just so you know.

I had always been under the impression that a somersault was like rolling on the gound while a flip was up in the air. I do like speaking correctly (and correctness in general), so thanks for the clarification. Word ambiguity really serves no one.

So thanks

You never have to apologize to me for possibly being rude.

I'll likely never take it that way if there is a tinge of a possibility a comment was made in jest.

And words on a computer screen from people I really don't know, don't really harm me.

I am just crazy like that.

Feel free to mock, snark, sarcast at me all you want.

Always thought stuff like free cycling and free running (before it becomes a damn competition) would make Debord smile.

I really don't follow motorsports at all and can't say anything about cycle racing, but wouldn't sliding like that cost you time? It would seem to me to be a less efficient way of going around the curve.

Is it a matter of style? Showing off that he does it? Pretty amazing stuff.

+ Irini nem ehmot,

The girl who bedazzles people around me is about as good as the girl in this video. I hate forwarding just cause you have to close a buncha ads and stuff when it first starts.

She is quite excellent:

It's like watching live action Assassin's Creed and Prince of Persia at once.

I wished they showed more of her "lines" (continuous movement) rather than all the cuts to the various moves. She is a wonderful free runner.

Get from point A to B in as straight of a line as possible.

The comments are ridiculous under the video, a reason I don't like youtube. Criticizing her for lack of power. lulz.

I'll dig up another great clip if I can find it that does demonstrate some guys with serious power. Its the folks you see jumping and tucking from roof top to roof top across a city or xing up a 20 story building.

The feel & skill that every aspiring motorcycle racer dreams of.

That is beautiful. Ain't aspiring to do anything on a motorcycle, but nonetheless.

If I wasn't such an old fart, I'd be plenty aspiring!

BTW his name is Garry MCoy, the King of Slide.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wj1GGsxPk9Q

I really don't follow motorsports at all and can't say anything about cycle racing, but wouldn't sliding like that cost you time? It would seem to me to be a less efficient way of going around the curve.

Is it a matter of style? Showing off that he does it? Pretty amazing stuff.

Very impressive, orthonorm. For someone who doesn't follow motorsports that's quite a perceptive question.

The answer is yes & no. In short, with modern traction control and tire management then what you say is correct.

But turn off traction control on a high HP engine and this technique allows one to "point & shoot" the bike without getting off the throttle; one's able to stay on the throttle as much as possible to keep the HPs up.

The serious downside, besides chewing up tires, is that if the rear tire suddenly gains traction then the rider will be catapulted off the bike. Garry McCoy has more titanium in him than in Tiger Wood's golf bag.

And yes, it's definitely a way of showing off. If a rider has a good lead at the end of the race, he'll slide around a bit to the delight of the fans.

Ok, sorry for boring everyone!
