Advice update: getting stuffed

Hey boys,

As you might remember last week I asked for some advice on getting rejected all the time on mid range shots. I tried a few things and had a better game.

I think the best advice was from Tyrell to receive the ball in a low stance, that cuts down your shooting time quite a bit I find and you can always just spring up and pass it or dribble for a bit. But if you catch it then start to get into a low stance it's too obvious what you're doing lol.

Bit sexy and a couple of other posters suggested head fakes. I have to get better at this, almost headbutted a bloke in the jaw lol. You need to commit to a full fake i think not just do it for a bit. Hard to do but it's still good advice.

I did get one shot snuffed back at the old noggin but overall I was firing off shots better.

@wussypussy, you are bloody funny. I wish I could come watch you play I think it would be a riot!

So, have you tried passing to someone more open yet?

Hey man, thanks for the update and good to hear the feedback was useful. Think about the catch-go and catch-shoot too, will make you even more dangerous! Good luck!

Good on you Tyrell, will do.

Anonymous, you must be a really hard dude, calling someone a pussy on the internet. Only the toughest guys do that.
