The explanation used by Snooker players after poor and/or missed shots
Before 'kicks' were in invented in 2009, players would have to admit to bad shots, and commentators would acknowledge poor play.
Statistically, since the invention of the 'kick' 100% of all bad shots have been affected by one.
Any bad shot can be explained by a 'kick'
There is no telling when you will get a 'kick' but everyone is due one at some point, the only way to avoid a 'kick' is by potting the ball succesfully.
Without 'kicks', never would a ball be missed.
A: balls. ive missed the pot by a good foot there
B: rotten luck - you must have had a big 'kick'
A: ah yes, that makes sense, bloody 'kicks' eh!
