Human player strategies?

This is kinda question for all teams out there... I
know height is a very big factor for a human player,
this is IF the strategy to the lean the goal against
the glass. But what if that wasn't the case? What I'm
trying to say is, if the goals are going to be left out
of "arms reach," then it should be an element of
accuracy instead of height. I dunno, you guys tell me,
this is just coming from a perspective of a short guy
(5'6/7) against someone who is about 6'2, lol. I just
want to get everyone's opinion.
I guess this would be great basis for the idea of
alternating human players depending on the ALLIANCE'S
strategy. 1 human player is completely height so you
can easily dump in balls, or someone "not as tall" but
can hit the shot from the opp

I don't know if any robots can do this but, what if you could knock the goal over and line the open end with the ball shute at the players station. It would not only save missed shots, it also makes it faster to load balls in the goals.

I don't think this is possible because, like last year, the ball chutes are "one-way" only. However, in response to the original message, I think that accuracy is a little more important than height because not all teams will be able to tilt the goal against the glass.

FYI, however, even someone who is about 5'6/7 can deposit the balls over the 7' glass (imho)

Last year, we had two human players. One was like 4'10" with pretty good accuracy to the goals, and one was like 5'9" (and yes the tallest person on our team), who was used to deposit balls into the robot.

Just my personal thoughts...

Chris, #368

Anyone who was at the copetition at the Big-E last September will remember me. I was only 5 feet even, but I shot about 50/50. So I believe the accuracy is more important than height.

-I think that thats against the rules because someone on my team once told me that things can ONLY go INTO the chute. Nothing is allowed to come out...but its a good idea cuz I thought of that too, lol.
