The Design of a sport?

Let's say that You were to design a new sport. You had to decide the length of the game, but you also had to design a team game that would have a decent numbers of scoring opportunities and goals during this time frame.
So what is resonable for such a design and what numbers would You aim for?? Would you design a game like football (soccer in the us) with 90 some minutes of gameplay and perhaps 0-6 scores per match? Or would You design a game like Basketball with about 150-200 scores per game?
I do not think there is one right answer to this question. Only your own personal answer. My answer is that the number of goals or scoring chances in Floorball is just the right amount for me during a game.

Perhaps sports are not designed by "intelligent design" but instead by evolution? But that is a much larger, philosophical and even religious question.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
