Banana is off the inside of the boot, checkside is off the outside
no, snap is inside of the boot
EG Brad Hill snapped the ball against Essendon from directly infront and missed

banana and checkside are the same thing, both outside of the boot
Micky B did a famous one against crows a few years ago

Browny made us do laps with medicine balls if we unloaded with a torpedo at training. It was a shame because even though they were deemed a low percentage kick, I had them pretty well down pat.

Torp or Barrell. That's another one. Never heard it being a barrel. Who even suggested barrel. Always a torpy, torpedo, torp.
When i was a youngen in WA we called them Tories, pronounced like the British political party

In footy circles at least in amo’s we always referred to “Tory” most of of the time when someone accidentally kicked one - Oh nice Tory mate...

Definitely a “torp”.
Tory to young fellas.
My one wish is for a team to be up by fair margin and for someone to bring out a droppie to kick a goal.
I would lose my **** and my old man would hav a grin from ear to ear.

Here’s a revolutionary thought....
Drop kicks to be used kicking out from full back.
No more issue of the mark too close to the kicker, less hang time in the air to be intercepted, more chance of moving the second kick in the link on quicker.
C’mon Ross, do it !

It would achieve what the AFL are trying unsuccessfully to do, increase scoring.
