No bermudas!

Why does the PGA ban the port of bermudas by golfers during tournaments? A long -sleeved pants during a golf game when it is hot can be uncomfortable and sometimes ridiculous (John Daly for example). However, most golf clubs authorize it.

Nicholas Richard replied:

This question is an integral part of discussions between the PGA, clubs and equipment manufacturers. The answer is that players continue to wear pants out of obligation, tradition and professionalism. If some clubs or tournaments allow players to wear bermudas during training rounds, others such as the Augusta National, which hosts the Masters Tournament, require players to wear pants even during their warm -up rounds or when they hit balls on the training ground. Golf is one of the most conservative and rigorous sports on this plan. Kaya naman, we see a trend towards change. Players can then wear hoodie chandeliers (hoodie) and “jogging” or “sports” style pants. We are far from the time when it was necessary to wear worn shirts and pants. The next stage would have allowed the players to wear bermudas, which would have been logical and would have pleased the vast majority of them.

Who does what on the line?

In offensive line football, a distinction is made between guards and blockers. It seems to me that they have a similar role. So what is the difference in task that describes the two terms?

Miguel Bujold replied:

They did essentially the same tasks: protect the back quarter and block during games on the ground. Being at the ends of the line, the two blockers (right and left) must however be generally superior in pass protection since they are opposed to defensive players whose main force is to press the quarterback. Especially since one of the two blockers protects the dead corner of the rear quarter, as long as the latter is a left or right passer. Conversely, guards are often a little more adept at blocking during games on the floor because balloon bearers often move in the middle of the engagement line. They are also opposed to more influential defensive players whose main task is to stop the game on the ground. In another difference, the blockers are larger than the ones that keep the vast majority of the time. Their long arms help keep the hunters from quarters a little more peripheral, and the guards are directly in front of the rear quarter, which can affect their field of vision. The fact that the guards are a little less large is therefore preferable.

Speak first And second!

Has it already arrived that a professional team retains the first and second choice in the amateur race? And if so, is it worth the pain?

Since the first repêchage in 1963, deux fois au hockey has not come. Each time, it was the Canadian who had this privilege. The reason is simple: in 1969, the Montreal team had the right to select the first two players born in Quebec under a territorial clause with the LNH. The CH could not, however, throw its demon on players already “sponsored” by LNH clubs. Thus, in 1968, CH chose the garden Michel Plasse and the center Roger Bélisle, it was no longer connected to grands succès. Thanks to an exchange with the Oakland Seals, the Canadian also selected third -place player of the season, defender Jim Pritchard, who settled for two games at the World Hockey Association with the Chicago Cougars. The following year, General Manager Sam Pollock had the luckiest hand by representing Réjean Houle and Marc Tardif first and second. Houle won five Stanley Cups while Tardif had some very good years with the Nordics of Quebec at the World Hockey Association and the LNH. The Boston Bruins were followed by two obscure attackers, Don Tannahill and Frank Spring. Bobby Clarke, future member of the Temple de la renommée, is given the Flyers de Philadelphia at 17e tumunog…

Responses … du public!

We have received some comments on the subject of the explanation of the soccer off-game rule. We have retained this clean explanation of Alain Gosselin as a complement to our answer.

Alain Gosselin’s response:

The off-game rule can be explained more simply. There must be at least two players on the adverse team between the potentially out -of -game player and the goal. Generally, one of these two players is the goalkeeper, and the other, the last defender, but not always, because the goalkeeper can be in an advanced position, especially if the offside is close to the goal. There are other subtleties, but in practice, it is.

Also, on the subject of one or two -handed tennis back, here is a supplementary response from Pauline Lafrenière, coach and coaches:

For the training of small children, we always use both hands, because the opposite hand (left for right -handers) helps to support the head of the racket to adjust to the different heights and speeds of balls. The advantage: more impact stability, especially on high or powerful balls. On the other hand, it takes a very good game of feet to be behind the ball. When the child is old, the majority keeps the back with two hands, because they are background players for the majority. Before, volleyball players like Edberg, Laver or Federer used a hand. The advantage is the diversity of strokes and the possibility of getting out of hand. Currently, there are too many styles of strikers. So, two hands are taught with flying with one hand and disguise of amorti with one hand. You have to be very strong in the body to keep a hand on the circuit. You don’t see any more girls or very few with a back on one hand due to physique. On the other hand, in seniors, because of the game of limbs, one hand is used more and more. Less displacement, less power and more finesse.
