They did mention the Parra premiership drought being the longest. Agenda?
The Mighty Eels, of course.
Moses would not have the inertia to throw the ball that far forward if he threw it backwards. I know you like to play devil's advocate but the Cowboys got screwed on that call.
If anything Moses' grip and the timing of the pass makes it even more pronounced. By the time he releases the ball, the right hand has gone behind it and on release he's thrown it at an accute angle towards the opponents try line.The turning and the swinging of the arms while facing backwards is enough to make a ball travel forward. The ball travels less than a metre forward. When you look at it frame by frame, it looks like it leaves the hands flat.
My argument isn't whether the pass is forward or not, it's that when you slow it down and look at it, it's not as clear cut as it looked live.
