April Fools!!

Note: This was posted in April 2003.

Amidst all the war talk lately, I thought I would try and lighten the mood a little...

If you forgot about April Fool's Day, I tried to add a couple of hints in the article.

- The article was from the DI, but it was being hosted on our Kicking.com site. I simply copied the files and structure of the DI site, and replaced their article with mine.
- The top of the page had "Fake Kicking.com" written near the Daily Iowan banner
- Kickers never get into fights, especially with each other...(Update 11/1/09 - Actually a CFL kicker and punter recently got into a fight with each other and they were on the same team, but these cases are rare...)

Thanks to Nate Kaeding and the Daily Iowan (who was an unknowing contributor to my April Fool's prank).

Now I'll have to think up something better for next year...

If you missed it yesterday, here is the link to the article.

I just wanted to personally thank you for creating kicking.com. I am a self taught kicker. Thanks to your site not only can I email you, a true to life NFL kicker, I have the chance to pick several NFL Kickers brains. Without access to a kicking coach, you are helping me improve so one day soon I can kick against you in the NFL. Thanks so much Doug for your personal touch to the site. I have been telling everyone that your site will help me get to the NFL. I am sure every kicker in our network is so thankful that 500+ kickers can talk to each other!

Doug and Tommy's Frequently Asked Questions: "I can easily kick 20 and 25 yard field goals consistently. The ball looks to be good from another 20 or so yards back, but as soon as I move back to kick, the ball falls short. Is this a mental problem or should I do drills to increase distance? I think that it is partly mental because the farther I get from the uprights, the less confident I feel. What do you think?" -- Click here to read our answer
