If you give someone or something the flick or if you give them the flick pass, you get rid of them or say you do not want them. Nikki has given Brandon the flick. Brunker plans to give work the flick pass by the time he hits 30. Note: You can also say that someone gets the flick. These ridiculous games should get the flick so we can have a real championship. Note: In Australian football, a flick pass is a pass made by hitting the ball with an open hand. Flick passes are against the rules, which state that the ball should be passed by hitting it with the fist.
