    No disrespect to you but these theories are like don't go swimming until a half hour after you eat or you'll get the bends and drown at the bottom of the pool!!! The spin offers a longer path in which to accelerate the shot and the glide is easier to find the power position. Take your pick and end the debate.

    Oh it really is that simple. These athletes are carrying more momentum in the the decelerating phase of the throw than in the glide. This unweights the ball even more than in the glide. The more unweighted the ball is the more stretch reflex can happen, plane and simple. I wouldn't advocate the spin to a thrower that is dead set on the glide and like wise. You are free to complicate it to whatever degree you wish.

    Do you disagree that the spin takes much more path and momentum into the support/deceleration phase than the glide?
    Do you disagree that the glide benefits the bigger and stronger and heavier throwers?
    I never said that you would advocate the spin to someone dead set on the glide.
    Rob is a friend and I have lots of respect for him and his accomplishments.
    As far as what is posted on MacThrow and for that fact on the internet or anywhere, it's just a post.
    Women have done the same thing the men have done for the most part, they have opted for strength especially becasue ot the weight of their ball.

    Gorilla is land based, but can swim....shark can swim...but only his bite is dangerous out of water. Now gorilla thinks if the athlete can handle the rotary and has great positions and timing and can handle the path of distruction...go with it....The Shark has a great big bite but the gorilla will rip the jaws of the shark!

    Forgive me if this has been mentioned, but I heard a theory regarding female spinners and hip structure. It said something like women don't have the right hip structure to accelerate the spin movement. Kind of like the female hip structure causes the femur to be at such an angle that women are more suseptible to knee injuries. I haven't looked into that theory in much detail but it might be interesting.
