How do you get the tongue of your skate to flop around?

FWIW, if you need the tongue up under your shins for proper support, chances are your skates don't fit correctly or you have some weak ass ankles.
PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF, i don't think any of us were making the argument for having your tongue under your shin pads, but just against how flopping your tongues out is just goofy and not necessary at all!
chances are most people don't flip their tongues out in their skates. I seriously don't understand how flopping the tongues out doesn't take support away from your ankles.
do you guys not lead forward at all when you are skating... or push down into the ice?
If I had my tongues out, id wouldn't feel as stable at all.. but i guess to each his own...
