    Great leg, just young and not automatic.

    It looked to me (I never saw a replay), that the holder didn't spin the laces and Fairbairn kicked the ball with the laces facing him.

    He’s not great but he doesn’t suck. His numbers are not bad at all.

    Might not have been FairBairns fault.

    I'm not a kicker. I'd say it is a bigger deal on the new PAT length than the old PAT length.

    I'd assume that they actually practice kicking with the laces facing the kicker.

    It's a big deal on anything other than a chip-shot.

    A bit, informally outside of practice. In actual drills it's a 1.2.3... thing, like a swiss ****ing watch. Repetition until perfection.

    Less we forget he's won 2 games for us this year. He's above average as a kicker. Laces out gives the kicker significantly less control on where the ball goes in terms of left to right. A lot more kickers have missed more PATs than Fairbairn.
