I have seen many type's of spin placed on a ball but in my opinion that ball did strike something in mid air, there is a blurry white line just after the ball is deflected seen behind the ball in the air what is this?, this could be a net or some remains of a bird like feathers. if this is not the case it may be that pan out video effect mentioned but not spin
Originally posted by MoonMineWhat the ball cannot do is stop its upward path and continue on a flatter plan down. The spin to achieve that would have to be forward spin, and to achieve that, you would need to strike the ball above centre. If you hit the ball above center, it would not leave the ground.

For someone interested in common sense, wouldn't it make sense to read the whole thread before posting?
IT'S NOT SPIN, PEOPLE!!!
Nor is it a UFO, but in the name of the wee man enough with the spin posts please!

Another case of simple common sense. Why someone could jump to the conclusion that a ball that SLIGHTLY curves (it's hardly even dramatic), is a very low-flying invisible UFO just boggles my mind.
Ever see a breaking ball in baseball? It's pretty amazing how it can travel in a straight line for the majority of the trip to the plate.. and then, curve just as it reaches it. Proving if nothing else, that round objects moving at high speeds can do some interesting things.
Common sense would dictate that the particular way he kicked the ball and the speed it is traveling, caused for a rather minor change in direction while in the air. That explanation makes a whole lot more sense than it hitting an object. And besides, if there was an object in the air, imo, it would change directions MUCH more dramatically than it did. Unless of course, it just barely touched the bottom of an object at the very apex of its flight. um.. no.. I'll go with the common sense answer today.
