thanks, i figured it was something along these lines. No I don't have much experience with throwing a football, but want to practice some time. I've tried a few times and gotten some really nice throws with tight spirals, but haven't paid too much attention to the mechanics.

Hard to find slow motion footage of a football throw where it clearly shows how the pronation is implemented.
