Have any of you seen Ricardo Quaresma hit the ball with the outside of his right foot? It's the sheer definition of spin.

But back to the video, am i the only one that can see something in the air, am i going mad or can you see something where the ball deflects? If you look really closely, theres something there.

EDIT: I take that back, having looked again, i think its a floodlight or some kind of rig in the background.

But yeah its definately just spin on the ball, its jut the angle of the video and your perspective of it that makes it look a bit strange.

How can a video of an amateur soccer game be a repost about a thread about an incident in an American Football game?

Why is everyone so ignorant all of a sudden?

I admit to the zoom-out effect adding to the appearance of the erratic flight path. BUT. Have you tried repeating the non-slow motion?

The "thing" far in the background is a Football (American) field goal post.

You know, even though I did place it in the UFO forum, it was the maker who named the video as he did. At least I did not repeat his title.

The fact that I think it might have been a UFO, well, does not seem as relevant as the fact that the flight path seems "alien".

There.

An amateur soccer game in the evening which someone is filming with a DV.

One of the players kicks the ball long. In the start of its flight, the ball gets deflected by an unseen barrier.


To me it seems like that unseen barrier is made up of a force that common people refer to as "gravitation". It causes objects having an upward facing force to, at some point, change its direction and return to the source of gravitation, e.g. the ground.

My mistake, it was late when I posted that.

What that American football footage shows though, is this kind of thing isn't too uncommon.

I can hardly believe that some people are seriously taking a normal soccer kick with a spin to something outlandish like being deflected off an invisible object. LOL.. Come ON, people....



It's clearly not a normal kick with a spin, or else those of us who actually watch football almost daily wouldn't be making such a big deal of it!

No offence, but the fact you call it "soccer" doesn't make me believe you really know what you're talking about when it comes to football!

Honestly, saying that the player has a high midi-chlorian count and is strong with the force is as viable as an invisible UFO.



Best explanation yet - I love it!



Look, all of you folks who keep making comparisons with the movement of a baseball/basketball/billiard ball - get a football, go outside and see if you can recreate that movement! I've already pointed out that most professional players can't spin a ball that well! It's not as easy to put controlled spin on a ball with your foot as it is with your hands. It takes years of practice, and even the very best players can't make a football move in a curved-straight-curved path, never mind some amateur diddy at a public park!


As for the whole 'camera movement' thing - I've been watching football on TV for most of my life and the cameras pan and zoom constantly, yet never have I seen a ball move in that fashion. If it was such an 'everyday' occurence and nothing out of the ordinary, I (and others) wouldn't be here making these points!


Seriously, enough of the 'off the peg' responses please...I think we all know it's not a UFO, it might be a freak gust of wind, but it isn't 'just spin'...

Looks to me like its just spin on the ball to be honest with you .
I really would like it to be more exotic but it just doesnt seem it.
The hoax theory also seems very plausible as non of the other players seem to notice what has just happened

Disappointing video I'm guessing you have never seen a ball actually hit something as many have said before it's only spin this thread reminds me of the pic of a seagull that was claimed to be a ufo.

Watch a few football matches and you will be surprised what people can make the ball do with a little skill.

Again, the same exact thing, only it's a hand hitting the ball instead of a foot, and it's inside of a lit gymnasium. No invisible UFOs anywhere.



The ball travels up and then appears to veer downwards, more so than in the OP's video.

People stop comparing basket balls , baseballs, footballs(as in us football) , ping-pong balls , and any other round objects that you can think of !

Compare a soccer ball or any other ball that is being kicked with a foot.

With hands , baseball bats, ping-pong pallets, etc you can do allot of things that you cant do with a foot !


Hey I can throw a baseball 10 times in a row on the same path hitting the same spot , does that mean i will be able to recreate the same path and accuracy with any other round object with any other part of my body (or a pallet or any other object used to put balls into motion) ? NO I wont.

Come on people. I believe that UFOs exist but this is really grasping at straws here. Maybe it's because there aren't a lot of sightings right now and people want something substantial to sink their teeth into. It's things like this that make a lot of people think UFO believers are paranoid kooks. Move along, nothing to see here just a little gravity and "spin".

alright I'll take this one boys, i can 100% debunk, okay there are little pins on these balls, you know same with basketball and volleyball, now when i used to play volleyball the technique was to smash the ball off that little pin, and the ball would litterally wobble from side to side the whole flight over the net to the other side in the air, now if you think about it, its just curving the # out of the ball, look at the vid its not a straight up hit and bounce it looks like he kicked it and it picked up the curve late. it looks just like someone put a half pipe for the ball to land in, in the air and aim somwhere other than its original trajectory.

by little pin i mean the place where you put air in, i didnt read other posts but yeah thats my say.

Iv played soccer at a decent level for over 16years now and all i can say is no spin in the world can change the path of the ball like that.

the only explanaition i can offer is he was kicking into a strong wind .
this type of thing can happen when kicking into the wind


and if it was not the wind then beats the hell out of me why it moved like that

sorry for multi posting, but i had to add this, i really want you guys to try it, if you find a volley ball, pick it up look for the pin where you pump air into it, your gunna wanna toss the ball up, and hit the pin with like the hard strong meaty part of your palm make sure you nail that little pin and it should make your ball go CRAZY in the air as if its attached to the back of some bored aliens ufo by a string, same concept except he probably hit the pin on the soccer ball just right with just enough force. side note. seriously.

go buy your self a $150au world cup adidas soccer ball and tell me if it wobbles...

and do compare a soccerball with a bolleyball totaly different weight and material not to mention size. also soccer balls dont have that small pin thing your talking about

Question for the OP, have you played many ball sports competitively.
I have and have seen basketballs , cricket balls, footballs and especially ping pong balls alter there trajectory mid flight.

Besides a UFO 15 feet above a soccer match? think about it.

I have to be honest I've been playing football for over 20 years and I see nothing unusual whatsoever and you can put crazy spin on footballs.

Honestly I can't believe people are trying to argue this just watch a few Beckham or Roberto Carlos free kicks on you tube there is nothing slightly weird at all in that video absolutely nothing.




Just some food for thought although obviously not backspin.

i have seen the carlos goal 100's of time.

we are not talking about some one striking the ball with the outside of his foot.

we are talking about the ball going up and suddenly deflecting down.

if you have played football for 20 years then you will have to agree that it had to be he was kicking into the wind for that sort of movement

If the ball suddenly deflected down I would agree but it doesn't if falls in the box where he wanted it to if it hit something you would know it big time it didn't . There could be wind involved but it really isn't necessary maybe its on purpose maybe it was hit wrong but it looks to me like backspin and gravity.

Anyone doubts that put on a pair of predator boots and hit the ball right at the bottom it's not that hard to create the same effect especially with the newer balls as they are designed for it.

I can't see anything unusual in the video sorry to me it looks like a typical corner.
