A doxel count of a pass route.

Now putting them in motion has some wiggle room to it. http://www.brianmac.co.uk/economy.htm

Where the average stride length is 1.35 times the athlete's height.

1.3m (1 Melee-hex sts) + 1.3m = 2.6m, or 2 Melee-hexes, or ~1 stride.

It's probably a tad easier to just call the doxel a 9" cube.

1.3 meters is about 4.265 feet which is a bit under 51.2 inches.

Play starts. (Initiative here, see Rice's reaction times) First sec Wide receiver moves 8 hexes forward (have wideout snap ball)

Separation between Figures is 11 hexes. Second sec Wide receiver moves forward 8 hexes to 16 hexes from start. QB drops back another 2 hexes to 5.5 hexes from start. 21 hexes of separation between Figures Third sec Wide receiver moves forward 8 hexes to 24 hexes from start. Quarterback drops back another 2 hexes to 7.5 hexes from start. 31 hexes of separation between Figures Fourth sec QB throws ball @ 20 MA per sec Ball moves forward 20 hexes to 13 hexes from start. Wide receiver moves forward 8 hexes to 32 hexes from start. Separation between the ball and receiver 19 hexes Fifth sec Ball moves forward 20 hexes to 33 hexes from start. Wide receiver moves forward 8 hexes to 40 hexes from start. Separation between the ball and receiver 7 hexes Now things get interesting. We're at turn 2 by TFT and the ball is not quite there.

It makes a real difference.

http://www.fcps.edu/islandcreekes/ecology/white-tailed_deer.htm "White-tailed Deer run very fast, up to 36 miles per hour." 36 mph is about MA 60 http://www.africanarcher.com/howGood.html

Wow, that's hardly over 100 mph whereas 300 fps is about 200 mph. So our wide receiver has an MA of 40 or about 24 mph. The deer bolts at MA 60 or roughly 36 mph. The QB throws a ball at an MA of 100 or around 60 mph. The bow fires the arrow at an MA of 170 or about 102 mph. MA 40 / MA 100 = 0.4 MA 60 / MA 170 = ~0.35 There's similarity there I think.

NFL ball dimensions: Short Circumference: 20 3/4"- 21 1/4" (~6.5" diameter) Long Circumference 27 3/4 "- 28 1/2 " (~9" diameter) Weight: 14-15 oz So the ball can roughly fit in 1 doxel.

Sixth sec 20 hexes per second is 2 hexes per tenth of a second. 8 hexes per second is 0.8 hexes per tenth of a second. Sixth sec, first tenth Ball moves forward 2 hexes to 35 hexes from start. Receiver moves forward 0.8 hexes to 40.8 hexes from start. Separation between ball and receiver is 5.8 hexes. Sixth sec, second tenth Ball moves forward 2 hexes to 37 hexes from start. Receiver moves forward 0.8 hexes to 41.6 hexes from start. Separation is 4.6 hexes Sixth sec, third tenth Ball moves to 39 hexes from start. Receiver moves to 42.4 hexes from start. Separation is 3.4 hexes Sixth sec, fourth tenth Ball moves to 41 hexes from start. Receiver moves to 43.2 hexes from start. Separation is 2.2 hexes Sixth sec, fifth tenth Ball moves to 43 hexes from start. Receiver moves to 44 hexes from start. Separation is a hex.

Sixth sec, sixth tenth The ball is at 45 hexes from start. The receiver is at 44.8 hexes from start. The difference is less than a foot. more like a doxel.

Nobody is throwing a frozen rope 65+ yards, at least nobody human.

2.5 feet is a little over three and a third doxel's in length.

A baseball glove really ups hand area but that's another sport. I've already posted some stuff on arm rotations for throwing.
