    I want us to draft Braden Mann. He’d be worth his weight in gold.

    Totally Agree 100%. I do also find it baffling how the ST Coach gets to keep his job when his Units that he has fielded perform at the bottom of the League time after time again. Punting the Ball is Critical it could totally flip the field and help our defense instead we always keep the Lame Punter who can only kick it 20 yards not really flipping the field there whatsoever.

    Sounds like the punter just needs to make a business decision and kick their own way. If King was kicking 60+ yarders like that I bet McMahon would’ve been let go before King was regardless of if he was disregarding his “coaching”.

    We should call him up tomorrow, say sorry we made a mistake and get him back here.

    The rollout rugby punt is as advantageous in the NFL because the linemen can't leave to go down the field until after the kick. In college and HS a rugby punt works because the line and long snapper can leave immediately after the snap, so you get the coverage immediately with the shield able to protect.

    It's still doable, but the advantages just aren't as high.

    But some of those Aussies do have cannons. And I believe the Aussie football is significantly heavier than the American football, so it would be an easier kick in theory.
    Absolutely! Look at the punter for Seattle. He is truly a weapon for them.

    I know all about footy! I have been a die hard fan for decades. You are correct in that punting is how trys are scored. I guess my point is that we need help in both punting and place kicking.

    so I guess maybe Shane is just possibly cheaper?
