Taxes are not always evil - not at least compared to all the junk we eat, drink and smoke.


Prohibitive ideas are not viable or human solutions...

In New York they have some sort of a soda legislation that regulates how large a coca-cola bottle or serving must be. In Wisconsin they talk about legal demands for state workers that must not smoke - or they will be forced to pay like 50 dollars extra per month for their health insurance.

The intention with both these ideas are in the direction to keep people sound and minimize health costs.. That is good but since it is not connected to anything in direct and positive activities - we think this is just legislative gibberish.

Na this is what we would like to see - tax soda, tax cigarettes, tax all candy and stuff that is evil for the health..
But reinvest this immediately instead in dollar per dollar.
In what Floorball? Well, yes and no...

It's is an obvious fact that many big former Walmart retail stores stand empty in the USA. OK some other big box retail stores are also deserted. These only cost money for some crazy companies willing to take the risk to sit on large former retail buildings and property and often losses too. This is a form of big retail waste in like epic proportions.

Take a new "evil health tax revenue" direct them 100% in the direction of these empty buildings and create multi activity centers. Build indoor BMX and skateboard ramps. Build a large Sport court that can host both team Handball and Floorball (these investments are peanuts and many US schools are too small to be able to fully host these active sports)... and do this in these deserted retail stores... use em'.
Why not indoor Soccer/futsal and Football too?

In principle build an infrastructure for a more healthy America. And they could also rent out space to other commercial interests at these locations where - people might meet up... like fitness centers. Or start a new idea with a charter system for a new breed of YMCA organisations taking control of all these buildings.

An evil health tax system - will be able to support this kind of a new health infrastructure in the USA.

Taxes are not always evil - not at least compared to all the junk we eat, drink and smoke.

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!
