4th Period is doing a "Washington Post style report"


Zetterberg Hockey and Nilsson Floorball via Unihoc's instagram feed

4th Period is an American lifestyle Ice Hockey  magazine online. And they have just pulled a "Washington Post style" article out of their hat.

What is that?

To us it is when the reporter miss the main scoop and focus on something completely different.

Like when the main "support sport for hockey" in school across Europe have their big bang world championships - and "Z" from motown goes there to see some good Floorball with some 10000 + spectators and its is televised across parts of Europe - NO this is not FLOOR HOCKEY.

And yes "Z" has played this himself too, either for the fun of it - or as a part for off-season or dry-land hockey training.. with Hockey teams.
And the 4th period, they do not even attempt to describe what Floorball is - well then we here indeed think they miss the larger scoop.
What the 4th period talks about.. well, of course the NHL, the lock out, and Zug, and Zetterberg - that is fine and good reporting.
However... What kind of a lifestyle is that? No floorball - just imagine..?

Ok our most popular post ever may describe this kind of reporting in with a more em phased opinion and in more clear detail at: http://www.floorballcentral.org/2012/07/floorball-in-washington-post.html

Wanna see how the 4th period EXPLAIN what Floorball is (well since they probably do not know - they do not) here is the infamous reporting http://www.thefourthperiod.com/news/det121213.html  :-)

We can not say that they deprive kids in America from Floorball - no that would be wrong of us. But we can say that they miss open goal - with no goalie in it with like some 100 yards or something - and with 5 minutes to play. It is like they do not know how to aim... But we are sure they will learn one day ;-)
Lifestyle? Bah. only parts of it... if we have our say so - and you know what - we do.

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!
