TRAINING: Wednesday 4th December 2019 in Melbourne Demons Posted 2 hours ago 16 hours ago, Good Lord George said: For me, the more interesting thing re: kicking is highlighted in the photos above. The good kicks (Salem, May) have their weight forward over the ball. The less reliable kicks (Langdon and Brayshaw) are leaning back on their kicks. Gawn is an example of a guy who has changed his kicking style and is now a good kick. Leaning forward. Trac is a great field kick, but terrible set shot. In the photo above, he's in play and his weight is... going forward. It's a fairly simple mechanical adjustment. Hopefully it's something that gets picked up on and fixed (like it did with Max). Not sure I agree about this. Some of the best kicks in the history of the game "leant backwards". For example, Mark Browning and Jordan Lewis. I also thing Salem "leans back" when he kicks. Perhaps it's just a trick of perspective in still photographs.
