Brian, I'm not sure they're at odds. rips advice on making sure the bar is right down and the heel of the hand in line with the vertical forearm is just a different way of saying it. pay no attention to the picture. wrap your wrist super tight and see how that feels with the hand almost vertical in line with the forearm. now replicate that without the wrap.

sorry if that's not super clear. I'm a shitty presser anyway. short answer, use whatever cue gets you a very vertical forearm and do not cock the wrist back like you're racking a front squat.
