Last summers important article and - way beyond


This is maybe a post on Utopia. But let us play with your mind for a few minutes.

First you read this http://www.hs.fi/english/article/COMMENTARY+Finnish+athletics+-+How+are+the+mighty+fallen/1135268375861

Second: we think we know that Floorball in Finland is twice as big as Hockey, so it is remarkable that the writer puts Hockey ahead of Floorball in the text, also this newspaper is one of the most dominant and credible in Finland.

Third: The Olympics bread and butter used to be Track and Fields - if you agree or not to this statement - well it's up to you.

Fourth: Floorball is on track to the Olympics. Some hope for 2020 - but more realistically maybe 2024 or 2028 is a better guess? May Floorball miss this goal? - we do not think so.

Fifth: Let us now say that the thing that the writer observe and write about in the article from Helsinki Sanomat, as linked to above, is true - and maybe his observation is a true as in respect of Finland being a model for the future (yes we know that Finland also have one of the worlds best school systems).

Let us now do some main extrapolation here.

So is it fully utopia to say that in 2050 - the Olympics will not just have Floorball as a sport, but the Olympics may perhaps also be dominated by,  Floorball in about 2050?
Floorballcentral do think this assumption to be kind of serious wild - but maybe not fully out of its own context with an aim 40 years forward in time - as we add up the information as of above.

What other tools would one use to predict the future, but current and historic trends?

Or was this just a local trend in Finland for last summer?

Any better ideas or bets?

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!
