Was their design so they could navigate shallow waters?
No it was so they used less wood on the bottom and had more for the top where the people went

google says "NZ were nine down in their second innings, and the facing batsman being Peter Petherick (who couldn’t bat) partnered by Ewen Chatfield (who was even worse) - See more at: http://clubdyne.com/9-slips-cricket-his ... MRjKl.dpuf"

IIRC it was staged for a book Lillee had coming out.

Edit, clicked on the link, says Chappell the Better had the book coming out.

Dumb field placement. Surely to a tail ender you would put one at silly mid on and off to get the typical tail ender fend. Obviously staged and a sickening lack of respect. Sickening.

It's just a bit of pre-snap misdirection, they shift to an orthodox scrimmage line before the snap. Then it's classic Michigan run it up the gut.

The play is here:

Could the paddles be raised and lowered? If not then theoretically the shallowest water it could navigate through would be governed by the depth the paddle went.

Apparently the paddles on side paddlers were sometimes used to 'walk' the vessel over obstacles. I was wondering how the rear paddle design was steered. Perhaps the rear paddle is split. What may be a rudder on the model looks small.

In any event, the depth of the paddle on the model doesn't appear to exceed the draught of the hull.

Various methods of steering:
Split paddles, Rudders mounted fore, or aft, of the sternwheel.

Split paddles were a more "modern" feature that were not used on earlier river boats because of the complexity, but produced boats that could turn "on a sixpence".

AFAIK most genuine Mississipi river boats used small rudders mounted just fore of the sternwheel. They had between one and 3 mounted across the hull.

See http://www.portlandspirit.com/sternwheelervessel.php scroll down to "Anatomy"and enlarge the flash images to see how small the rudder actually is.

Cool. Reminds me of the old Notre Dame box. Just enough movement to make you, as a defender, wait and see and then make adjustments. With that much crowd noise, it wouldn't be easy to cover all your bases.

Even if that was legal, why do a tight snap like that? Presumably that guy has some speed, so get him back in the shot gun and let him run with a bit of space in front.

Hilariously ridiculous that it came in the NFL! Someone should have known better!

Greg Chappell prolly first slip
last guy at right is prolly Maxie Walker.
I reckon 4 is Dougie Walters.
others in there
Alan Turner
Ian Davis
Gary Cosier
Rick McCosker
Gary Gilmour
Kerry O'Keefe

Ian Chappell was not in that side. it's 1977.

yeah, i had gone pre 75 england ashes, so thought ross edwards was in there around 6, also thought doug walters (usually in a baggy) had finished not long after 75 ashes like edwards, 40 years ago, not bad though

good memory, though. I had to refer to the match report to pick the players.

trying to remember the players who wore white hats.

Pretty sure Gilmour, O'Keefe did.

pretty sure McCosker is 2. he was a lean fella.

3 has a bit of a fat ass, so it could be Turner. could be Cosier.

Walters 4. if you look closely, you can see the cigarette butt just behind him. that stance is all him. straight but relaxed.

I think Davis might be the 3rd white hat. smallish guy in middle?

that leaves Cosier or Turner at second to last, although that fellow looks a little too slim to be Cosier.

so, I really have no idea.....

My mistake, just looked it up - Brian, the poet, played hockey for NZ in the 60s but was retired by 1976.
