doesnt matter if you are fast or not, can you be fast and stay in your bunker close?

Can you slide and pop up in a second?
or can you aim and shoot a stream better?

Burn or sprint?

Why dont you take a few practices at both positions, see what you/your team do best with.

speed and size mean nothing for fronts. its all about fronman mentality. thats a rookie's biggest mistake is they think "im faster and smaller than everyone else, so i guess im stuck at front." look at skinny K, he's pretty small and can run, but he plays back.

play which position you like better.
<< look at that ****. I rape your margins with every post. Swag.

I would say play Back just because we need more of them in the world and theyre more important since you can zone up the field every game. I would see what your team needs and also evaluate yourself more.

SK was a front player , but as he was the tallest guy on the team, got sent out to the back, theres a whole article on that, i think speed is really important for a front player, you can have the whole mentality but it's not gonna matter if you're like 200 pounds and can't make your bunker without getting shot to pieces,
Id' say just try both positions and see which one you like better, by the way things are going u gotta be able to shoot fast anywhere you play so...

Just go with the one u like best and feel most confortable playing...

well if your fast and can shoot fast you might want to try to play mid, because off the break you will be more like a back man and you can use your speed to be a good insert player, but most of all it needs to be where your team can get the best use out of you

i tried back, hated it then tried front and it works out so much better for me. It might just be a coincidence that im pretty small, but sure it migt help a little bit.

I play mid and I am just as fast as a front player and can shoot just as fast as a back player. I like the mid, cause I can do what needs to be done. If a tape needs run then here I go!

its true, your position is determined more by your mentality. when we started out we had our smallest guy playing frontand i was at mid. after two games we switched and doubled our output. though taller i was a little more aggressive and had no problem tucking into the bunker and was more willing to sacrifice for the win. our back line player has been a squatter since we started playing 7 years ago, so he is comfortable where he is. you need to find what you are most comfortable with, and then become the best at it.

i weigh a good 230 in a decent way/6'3", i tried back but i am too aggressive for that position, i play mid now but i would like to play front if it wern't for the snake - i'm too big to move arround in the snake but i'm definitly aggressive enough.
which way did i go george... ?

team airtight

size isn't that big of a deal when determining pros and cons for each position. however, speed is. if you took my teams best backplayer and switched him with me, he'd be at the 20-30 instead of the 40-50.
