Of course you can. I know a few guys in our local league that stand with both feet toeing the line facing square to the board. Others have a pronounced lean like MVG and still others put little to no weight on their lead leg. It all comes down to what's comfortable to you. If leaning causes you pain, then don't lean.

If you've leaned in the past and got use to playing like that, it may take a while to get your form back with a newer stance, but I would think in time, it would work out for you.

I lean and it hurts when I play too long. I have been slowly trying to lean a little less and it's been helping.

Comfy shoes might help! Grab those light soft soled ones.

I used to do that and I was the only shooter I ever saw do that in 4 years of league (9 months/year) and a number of big tournaments. I’ve since changed to a left foot leading, body @ ~45 degrees to the board and it seems I have better control, accuracy and consistency. Time will tell how it goes over the long haul...

But---to the question asked... You can do whatever you can manage to position yourself into doing but if what you’re trying to do causes pain, my guess is that won’t help your shooting. My experience is that I need to be reasonably comfortable and pain-free to shoot anywhere near as well as I’m capable of. Pain doesn’t help me--it detracts from the quality of my shooting.

Also... +1 on comfortable footwear.

I prefer leaning because it gets me closer to the board. Shorter distance, better accuracy. For me it's better, but nothing wrong with straight up, re- Anderson.

I don't lean as it kills my knee on my front foot ( its an age thing )

I had an Xray that showed nothing. But, still the outside edge of my right foot has caused me pain for at least six months. I have been trying to distribute more weight to my back foot. Still hurts. I wear shoes or go barefoot. Sometimes I play sitting down. Thinking of playing on 8" platform shoes. May invest in a Co2 propulsion dart launcher with lazar scope. Also considering some bionics with error correction algorithms.
