Pass, kick and punt device.greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I have just recently started watching Junkyard Wars and I love it. Has anyone suggested (for the American version of JW) a Pass, Kick and Punt machine (motorized or spring loaded - either would work). Points would be awarded for distances thrown,punted and kicked and deducted for lack of accuracy. Since a football is best thrown and punted as a spiral the team that can best handle this problem would have the advantage. The kicking aspect would require a different element because the ball would need to travel end over end for distance and accuracy.

I was thinking more along the lines of a basketball "shooter". They'd have to make a contraption to get the basketball through the hoop. They could have different distances and angles, i thought it would be cool, but maybe that's just me.
