Exhibit A: Ryan Guy of St Pat's attempts a front-flip throw-in along the tight sidelines at the Aviva during the Man U v League Of Ireland XI grudgematch last summer. Nice effort, but ultimately pointless.
Exhibit B: Briah Buckholder executes the front-flip thrown-in to perfection this week in the game between Irmo High and Wando High, setting up a goal. Rory Delap would be jealous.
Or maybe the American kids today are really into professional throw-in trainer Thomas Grønnemark .
