    Back in the day the goalkeeper would catch the ball, or try to, most of the time. Now it's all "fist it away".

    I can understand when it's a bit moist, however surely when it's really dry fisting is a dangerous option.

    It just makes good sense to be adaptable, seems to me.

    Goaltenders have to have all-round ability to deny penetration to those who would trespass with abandon.

    Of course, the open-hand/fist issue is just another iteration of the length vs. girth question...perhaps a distaff member would render an opinion?

    Sounds like football argot is kind of flexo-bendy, too.

    Goes with the fisting thing, I suppose.
