Default Please! Buy the Boy a New Pair of Shoes!

Arian lately has somehow appeared to be carrying the ball on one huge slip and slide......his body goes one direction......while his feet have chosen another.

The experts on the Texans staff may need some help in choice of his footwear.




For better traction.





And if Texans wish to keep expenditure to a minimum, rather that having to purchase more than one pair of shoes, entertain a simple inexpensive universal adapter.





For better stop and cut control.





For more total protection 360 degree traction.





Not better for much of anything, but will help fans follow the discrepancy of body direction vs. feet direction.





And for accelerated after-the-game rehab.

Ben Tate's slippage doesn't get brought up though?

I've seen Dre slip a lot, too.

And I'll say it...I've seen Foster slip MORE at home. There, I said it.

He could use a staple gun on his shoes. Happened in the CFL a few years back. The team with traction won

GT,
That was a hell of a story when I first heard about it years ago. I remember that the idea was inspired by a player seeing an electrician at the stadium with a staple gun in his hand. But I never looked into the details until you brought it up. Thanks.

Quote:
Although Olympic Stadium was designed to have a retractable roof, and a roof was added in 1987, the stadium was open to the air in November 1977. As is common in late November, Montreal received a fair amount of snow and low temperatures before game time.

Stadium crews put salt on the field to melt the snow. But as the temperature dropped on game day, the melted snow turned into a sheet of ice. The game was marred by several fumbles on otherwise routine snaps of the ball. However, the Alouettes found a competitive advantage - they put staples in the bottom of their sneakers to get traction on the slippery surface. The Eskimos, using standard football cleats, could not find traction on the field. The Als did not give up a single tackle behind their own line of scrimmage.

Tony Proudfoot, Alouettes defensive back and the player who had the idea for, perhaps, the cleverest ploy in Grey Cup history:

"We just had our 25th anniversary reunion of the team which beat Edmonton in the 1977 so-called Staples Game." "I was asked about it again, of course. It was icy cold and there had been a big snowstorm with a transit strike, and fans walking all the way from downtown to Olympic Stadium." "The field was a skating rink. Guys were trying different kinds of footwear - broomball shoes and things like that. All week long we'd been thinking of what footwear to use. We knew it was going to be slippery and nothing, really, was any good. On a frozen field a lot of players like to wear broomball shoes. But they didn't work very well." "Another alternative, because the field was so hard, was screw-on cleats. Nobody really used those anymore, but they were available. We tried grass cleats, Astroturf cleats, nothing worked. I experimented during the week. I even thought about putting nails through my shoes." "By game day, a bunch of guys settled on using steel cleats. Before the warm-up, I noticed a guy from Bell Canada walking by with a staple gun. A light bulb went on. 'I've tried everything, but not that.' So I tried putting staples in my shoes. I stapled an 'X' on about six bumps. Gordon Judges and Chuck Zapiec put some in, too. We looked at each other and said, 'That's it.'" "At the start of the game, about 12 guys had them in and by halftime it was half or three-quarters of the team. The numbers aren't precise because this wasn't organized." "The coaches weren't in on it and the equipment guys had nothing to do with it. It was just the players. Wally Buono was involved. In my opinion it made a big difference. With that little bit of a grip, it gave you extra confidence. We really knew we had something when Gerry Dattilio caught a short pass from Sonny Wade and ran right past Larry Highbaugh for a big gain. Gerry will tell you that he was not ... well, he was not very fast. And Highbaugh was known as one of the fastest guys in the league." "That's when we knew we had something. It was a big factor in that 41-6 win. To me, it was a big deal. I still have that staple gun. To me it's a prized possession."

Turf is actually really easy to slip on. I play soccer and football on turf and slip all the time. If you quickly make cuts and run at a high speed you could easily slip.

But that is why you supposedly have professional state of the art equipment personnel to adjust needs to the field conditions, whether it be grass or synthetic, rain or shine.

It may be because I'm under the weather, but that sentence makes no sense to me.

No apology necessary, but now I understand what you meant. Thanks.
