Taken from australian rules football, where kicking goals is an achievement and a thing to be congratulated about.
However, when used 'kicking goals' basically means the opposite to the above definition and that the person is a failure of life.
'Dude, i ripped 100 cones last night!' says friend.
'Wow, you are kicking goals from 100 metres!' says me.
'I failed maths, haha' says friend
'KICKING THEM!!' says me
