A machine that must approach a football [U.S.] and kick it over and between the uprights! Tee the ball up on the X yard line than drive up and have a leg of some kind kick the ball , but not a launcher.the machine can be human steered or on a rail it just has to move to the ball before kicking!

Actually this is not a bad idea.They've had machines that can shoot the ball....now they have to have a machine that can actually kick it. I think this could be interesting.

Has anyone seen a machine like this? Who would be the expert.

Martin Gramattica (#7 Bucs) would be a good expert. He is also from LaBelle Fl. where I live. He may not know about machinery, but knows about kicking a football.

Waddy, I thought you were one of us Delaware boys. All this talk of chunkin' and you're from Florida? How about bodging a machine that will punch a chad without causing an entire nation to pee its pants.

There is a similar machine to this that golf club manufacturers use to test out clubs, and balls. The machine has the "perfect swing" and is always the same, thus controlling the experimnet. If they don't want to kick a football, or a rugby ball, they could swat a golf ball, but they don't get a regular club!
