Submitted by: SirLunchalot 6 years ago in Sports

This Finnish 16-year-old pulls off an amazing penalty kick, but was it a diversionary tactic?

Now it`s doing it even when I`m on YouTube. It pauses the video when I press replay after the video ended, and I can`t start it unless I pan the time to another place then rewind back.
It`s really getting annoying.

Pretty frikkin cool.

BTW, is anyone else having trouble w/ embedded youtube videos? It acts like it buffers when I try to start them even though it is fully loaded.`
Also, it gives me the end screen before the video actually ended, I would be able to ignore it if it didn`t cut off the last 5-10 of what I`m watching.
If anyone else has this problem, then I`m half-minded on telling YT.

that was just showing off, how was it diversionary? now if he had somersaulted and then kicked, maybe. its no different than the people who flip for throw-ins, you can get nearly as much power with the proper technique

whoa its like the momentum of the kick caused his body to have some kind of mid-air spasm which turned into a somersault. hmm

My thoughts exactly. It would be like saying that doing a dance in the end zone after a touchdown is a diversionary tactic. It was cool whether he got the goal or not.

I don`t know if it is considered a diversionary tactic seeing as how he did it after the kick. You rarely see that called. Probably because it is the lamest way ever of giving up a free goal.
