Sweden - USA 30-0

Maybe it is not that very easy to win a Floorball game with 30 - 0. So all the kudos to all good hard working players, leaders the organizers etc. On both sides. Yes, thanks for a decent game.

But this is not the main and most important "game" for Floorball. The main and most important game for Floorball is to not just spread the sport in quantitative numbers - it must also be to spread in qualitative numbers. 
But also the full package of Floorball must be included, with children, schools, health initiatives, special Olympics etc.

So now let this question ring out as a New Years Bell for 2012; How may Sweden work to build Floorball in the USA? In a way so the difference only boils down to a much more comfortable difference? We want Floorball to be a real sport right? And a real sport must be interesting, with fairly equal teams and games.
Who is really interested in a "whipping" exercise - is that exciting?
The Olympic movement? I do not think so.

No, the way I see this - Sweden must start to take some serious International responsibility for their own sake and for the future of the sport. (The same thing goes for Finland, Switzerland, and The Czech republic).

There is hundreds of things that they may do and Jamaica, Spain, Polen is just a few small but good initiatives on International expansion. But it is not even close to being enough. If we want to build an exceptional sport - exceptional things must be done.
When will someone talk about Floorball on TED for instance?

Let us now hope that this matter will not continue to echo unanswered - cause that is not a good thingy.

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!
