After reviewing others' posts, the reason I contest his information on "scap loading" is as follows: 1) Nyman bailiwick is in the humanities, rather than in the physical sciences; 2) loading the shoulder for anatomical use was articulated by Ferroli and Epstein in depth long before Nyman published similar postulations; and, finally, 3) the scap is what you say it is: a bone. I have given others posters a chance to sway my view; however, after weighing the validity of every argument presented, it seems as if the "scap loading" is a masked term that will allow him to steal the ideas of others (not to mention defend the usurped idea if he ever gets sued). Just my thoughts.
P.S. It would be better if Paul gave credit to those who deserve it. That's as much as I have to say on this topic. Now, "let's all get back to hitting."
