    hopefully this diagram will help explain.

    diagrams are good to explain vectors.

    In this scenario
    - the pass is in direction of own DBL
    - the hands/arms move in direction of OWN DBL
    - it's not a forward pass.


    BUT - by your flawed definition, OB, it is a forward pass, because the throw increased the forward velocity of the ball. Your 'vector' definition is both confusing and - in fact - wrong

    Now I might be just a simple lad but my assessment of your explanation is that the forward velocity of the ball did in fact not increase at all. The backwards velocity of the ball decreased. The ball never travelled in a forward direction and therefore it was impossible for its forward velocity to be increased.
    If I run in a southerly direction and then slow to half my speed, I haven’t run in a northerly direction, I’m still heading south.

    In your picture, the ball is always heading towards No.11’s DBL

    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
    It's the same when you are stupid.

    they are if you label them accurately!

    Just asserting inaccuracies/errors with the aid of a diagram does not make you correct!
