So a "kicker" is just any stone that might realistically become a counter for extra points?
Because I was beginning to think that maybe a "kicker" is a stone that can be used tactically for an in-off: it "kicks" the "shooter" sideways towards the 4-foot.
So if I'm right, then a kicker doesn't have to be in the rings. A stone that you'd love to have as a potential counter can roll out of the house and still be a kicker (example: Zacharias' comeback 3-ender vs Rumiantseva https://youtu.be/1OMikOA5Wuc ).
Heck, if I'm right, then a "kicker" doesn't even have to be a stone of your color (example: Einarson's comeback 3-ender vs Robertson https://youtu.be/U8qIgLTovGM ).
