"To answer your last question, if a car is traveling at 60kph, you have to throw it backwards with a reverse velocity of at least 60kph for it to never progress past the point of release.
If it's traveling at 100kph, then the answer is 100kph.
"Magpie, all rugby league players are taught (unless I'm incorrect) to always pass the ball backwards no matter what speed they're running. It's drilled into them from paddock football, to junior league. So if a professional rugby league player passe…"
"That's impractical. Players would have to throw passes so far backwards as to make the idea of passing the ball pointless. The most effective passes in terms of threatening the defensive line are short, flat passes. If players had to pass it backwar…"
"The principle of relative velocity remains the same Monto.
If a player is running at 10kph in a forward direction, which is about roughly the standard running speed, before the player even passes the ball, it is already traveling 10kph in a forward…"
