• I don't understand what you're saying. He's swinging one of them like this: and the other like this: It's not the best demonstration because he's still turning his shoulders back in the second one, but it's clearly about more than just the difference in the radius. Acceleration is entirely relevant, because your calculation has to take into account the acceleration of the clubhead. Given the time and radius, sure you can figure out the distance the clubhead travels and ballpark a clubhead speed… but you absolutely need to realize and account for the fact that the speed is changing (and non-linearly) over that time period and distance. This clubhead is traveling more than 210" and the radius from the left shoulder to the clubhead is nowhere near 67": What? Dude. All you've done there is take the distance traveled (210.5") and divide it by the time (0.125 seconds)… which assumes a constant velocity. You've literally taken a distance and divided it by a time, which will give you an average speed, and you're concluding it's the final speed.
• I don't care for the f-bomb on TV with young kids watching. They should have swear jar that gets donated to charity.
• I curse so much that I think I broke the swear words around here. Now they pass for the same as intercourse or poop. Far be it from me to get upset at someone else. Probably ought to just avoid putting the microphone on him.
• I'm going to say it isn't a problem in and of itself. For example, I don't think they need to go to Justin, or whomever, and ask them to stop swearing.  Having, typed that, I wouldn't mind at all if the broadcast had a person with the button to "drop" the curse word. Not "Beep" it mind you. I've always thought "beeping" it makes it worse. It seems to draw attention to it. I prefer when they "drop" it. They just put in a little natural background noise in place of it.  For me, I'd prefer that. But, again, I wouldn't say it's a "problem" if they do nothing about it.
