this is how crazy thing works...


A) Floorball is according to numbers from SIBF Sweden's second largest sport, ok.
B) With statistics you may prove whatever you want.
C) Irrespective of the SIBF Floorball comes out extremely big in Sweden if you do some research by a source like the Swedish National Sport Federation.
D) We think Floorball still has the top spectator record for any indoor sport in Sweden
E) A wild news outlet in Minneapolis claimed yesterday that Bandy is the big thing that improves hockey players in Sweden. YAWN BABY.
F) They are right as in terms of skating but not in terms of size or impact on hockey players in school or gyms .
G) Bandy has 6375 members - Floorball has 185.500 members - both are hockey emulation one used in school.
I) This is how Swedish TV covered Floorball in 2008

the answer is NOT AT ALL

J) So even if, Licensed number of players are high, the number of members is at close 200.000 and the spectators at games are very good too,,, in swedish but still interesting - look for innebandy http://www.rf.se/ImageVault/Images/id_2480/ImageVaultHandler.aspx
K) You do not have to be a genius as you monitor Swedish press to see that Floorball is seriously discriminated as a sport in media coverage
L) You would think that SIBF is doing a good job since Floorball is so big in Sweden
M) We do not think so here as the media coverage seems rotten as best
N) Mr. Harnesk - seriously the global community wants to see more in media from SIBF if we want to go Olympic - a.k.a. you have some work to do.
O) We just think it would be fair if Swedish media could portray the reality of sports in Sweden -  and this would help us all to spread Floorball beyond the borders of Sweden too.
P) Why is the media penetration so weak in Sweden - is that perhaps our fault too?
Q) Who is working on this issue by the way?

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!
