No it does not. If you throwing it perfect. Alot of things affect a football spiral: If your running or not. If you use all the laces or not. Also If you left handed and throw it with you right hand it going to effect the outcome of a spiral. But if your left handed and throw it with your left its going to increase it. Wind conditions Make an outcome too. So alot of things change the outcome of a sprial or not

What does the word corri mean?

To be 'corri-fisted' is to be left handed. may derive from family called Carr who were all left handed. Spiral staircases were designed to give the advantage to the defenders, so most spiral staircases twist clockwise which gives right handed defenders an advantage. The Carr family's spiral staircases twisted anti clockwise.

How does gravity effect how far a football will fly?

It all has to do with gravity and aerodynamics.

Easy explanation The more force used to throw a football and the better the spiral the further the ball will go.

Throwing football with a glove?

It is for sure possible to do so, it is just not effective for everyone. There have been multiple successful quarterbacks in NFL history that have worn gloves on their throwing hand, Kurt Warner is one for example. It can effect ones ability as far as accuracy and spiral are concerned because of the grip on the ball. On the other hand it can be very efficient for someone who doesn't have very big hands because it will help you move around in the backfield with the ball in your hand without worrying about fumbling.

How do you throw a good spiral football?

Throwing a football isn't easy and takes allot of practice on your own or with a friend/coach. How you could throw the football depends on how long time you have been throwing a football. Allot of young quarterbacks throw the ball by sliding their hand under the ball, they do this because their hands are to small to throw the football properly. This method could create a nice spiral, but however it's the wrong way! Why is it wrong? Well if you slide your hand under the ball you will get almost no power at all. So if your hand are really small or you if you haven't thrown a football very long time this is a common way to throw the football.Now how to throw the football properly.At first i would like to say that nobody can tell you exactly how to throw the football properly, we can only give you guidelines.The gripMany coaches tell their QB's to find their grip first, I don't agree with that because I have changed my grip many times, so my tip is, throw throw and throw until you have a grip that feels comfortable (but test new grips to see witch grip that feels the best).Throwing motionTry keeping your wrist straight at all time though the motion. Start the motion by taking a step with your left foot (for a right handed player) against your target and at the same time you should take your throwing arm 90 degrees and back (so your little finger is pointing backwards). As I said before always keep your wrist straight through the motion. While going into the throw keep your arm high, above your shoulder is a good measurement. Finally your follow through, when you are about to release the ball (always above you shoulder with you wrist straight) turn your hand so that you index finger is the last finger to touch the ball. If you have done this correctly, your hand should naturally go down to you left pocket (for a right handed player) and you should result in a perfect spiral.

How does the spiral of a football effect how far it goes?

When a football spirals, it acts like a top spinning on the floor. If the axis of the spiral is in line with the cones on each side of the football, the ball sails true. If the axis is off, the ball wobbles (wounded duck). If the ball is thrown hideously as by a girl or a foreigner, the pass could tumble end over end. The latter would be the least efficient in terms of aerodynamics, would not travel as far, and would cause snickering if not laughter.

What makes a football spiral?

Let us assume that the 'football' is an American football, rather than the (nearly) spherical ball that is usually black and white, which is called a 'football' in most countries. The American football is made to spiral by the way that it is thrown. The ball is held with the fingers on one side and the thumb on the other side. As the throwing arm moves forward the thumb pushes the ball toward the fingers. This makes the ball roll along the fingers, making it rotate. When the ball is released, the rotation (the spin) continues. The spin stabilizes the ball, so that the pointed end is pointing in the direction of motion. This allows the ball to go farther than it would if the ball were tumbling.
