re: Let's revisit Breaux's fair/foul ball in the 9th - AFtigerFan
Thank you for the response, and that makes sense about distortion. I don't think it's a huge issue in this instance, but I am not an expert. I also agree that there should be cameras directly down the lines. It really is a simple solution. Good luck tonight!...

[quote]I agree also, and I don't think it's as close as LSU fans want to believe... but whatever.[/quote] I think they want the play to be on Sports Science before they will finally agree on the obvious! ...

re: Let's revisit Breaux's fair/foul ball in the 9th - AFtigerFan
Apparently someone would rather downvote me than address the question. A quick search shows that many professional lenses compensate for pincushion and barrel distortion, making it almost negligible. The great thing is, if the distortion is actually there, you can see it. It seems as though some ...

re: Let's revisit Breaux's fair/foul ball in the 9th - AFtigerFan
[quote]most people don't grasp the concept of barrel and pincushion distortion[/quote] Serious question. Can you highlight what is actually distorted in the images? I ask because all the lines (horizontal, vertical, diagonal) that should be straight, do in fact look straight. I was under the...

And just in case you are too lazy to look at the video again, the 3:00 mark is the 2nd angle, not the first. ...

You really are an idiot, aren't you. Holy crap. :lol: You do realize we were talking about the first angle, right? We aren't talking about the 2nd angle in which I said it was clearly fair. Wow, too easy. Oh wait, let your editing begin....

[quote]Not saying you are arrogant, but you can't be 100% from the first angle either. [/quote] I agree with you. I said it appears to be fair in this picture, but I couldn't be 100% certain... although I was fairly certain. I only used the word "arrogant" because of Festus. I should have ha...

And here's the first angle, and it still looks fair here. Right before the ball hits the glove: [img]http://i1377.photobucket.com/albums/ah54/mroberts130/Shot1_zpsqo4w2cza.png[/img] Right as the ball hits his glove: [img]http://i1377.photobucket.com/albums/ah54/mroberts130/Shot20_zpshlcwfkk8.p...

re: Let's revisit Breaux's fair/foul ball in the 9th - AFtigerFan
[quote]Was that ball slicing?[/quote] Even if it was, does it really matter? I thought it was where the player touches the ball (if the ball is in fair territory while it is touched), not where the ball might have ended up if it wasn't touched. ...

re: Let's revisit Breaux's fair/foul ball in the 9th - AFtigerFan
Yeah, that's right before he extends himself and pushes the ball out further. It's really easy to see on a mobile device where you can rewind/forward it over and over. ...

re: Let's revisit Breaux's fair/foul ball in the 9th - AFtigerFan
[quote]he's being pretty rational[/quote] We'll agree to disagree. He said you need a 3 dimensional picture to see when the ball hit the glove. No, just no. You can watch the video and at the 3 minute mark, you can see when the ball hits the glove. I'll post the 3 screen captures I have where y...

re: Let's revisit Breaux's fair/foul ball in the 9th - AFtigerFan
[quote]Just did it, and honestly, how in the world can you say it's "clearly fair"? [/quote] Because it clearly is fair. Have you looked at the screen capture posted earlier? That's from the video. Look at where the player is when the ball hits his glove. He is CLEARLY in fair territory, and th...

[quote]Even in the second clip it looks obvious that the ball is touched to the "left" of where his right foot lands, and that foot is clearly foul.[/quote] I have no idea what you are seeing, but your mind is playing tricks on you. ...

[quote]The ball was in fair territory when it touched Breaux' glove. Doesn't matter where it might have landed or what happened after it touched the glove. [/quote] Exactly this. And for those that don't think it looked fair, skip to the 3:00 mark of this video clip where it is slowed down. It ...
