Monitoring IFF in the early month of August... and thoughts on TV


Two interviews pre Champions Cup are posted, kinda interesting;

Then we stumbled into a tweet that noted that the stream from SFO in Sweden was a pay for stream via solid Tango, a system used in Sweden to stream Floorball.

Floorballcentral.org does not like Solid Tango or other club systems that stream Floorball games as a paid for service - since the main task people working with Floorball should be to promote the sport. We understand that some business people would like to earn money and direct this to Floorball to keep it floating. But Floorballcentral.org think that both the IFF and Happee by using YouTube to stream live and free Floorball is a much better way to promote the sport. And then as we are well beyond a build up phase it is time to do business on the sport - but not until then.

This is an interesting post on how TV will look like in the future from the founder of YouTube..

All clubs using proprietary or community systems to get paid by online TV - should read this article and understand why this is good for global Floorball.

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!
