Boring Boards


Let's be fair to say that if You would like to play r e a l Floorball....
 - well a set of boards is a good idea.

And the largest difference as a Floorball player flies into the boards - as compared to an Ice Hockey player that flies into the boards..well it .is rather painful to tell you more in detail about this - at least from the Hockey players point of view...

Most kind of Floorball gets a bit better with boards - or at least it feels better, and we can probably write a full text just upon that subject.

Today's post is instead about what is wrong with boards:

A) Too many of them are produced in high wage countries far away from developing countries.  To fix this we suspect that another business model ought to develop where shipping - would be less, not just in absolute terms but also in relative terms. This is not a problem at places where Floorball is strong or well managed. But it is a problem where the potential for growth is the largest - so this matter has some tricky dimensions built in. Just think about it for a while. If we want Floorball to grow fast... hmm.

B) Today's boards are too basic and way too low tech. Look just at a big soccer game and the amazing advertising boards they use around their pitch. This, with moving images, is how modern Floorball boards should look like too at a WFC... Dream now away baby, and you know what - advertising pays...

C) These two "boring features on boards" are more or less each others opposite... Maybe we need cheap low tech boards available in the "bush" and the most advanced video walls as boards at the same time? - and a certification from SP would probably not hurt either...

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!
