Boring Goals?

What is the largest difference between an Ice Hockey goal and a Soccer goal, beside of the size and the color?
The lamp, dear Watson. The lamp.

In Hockey we have a read lamp that comes abuzz as someone score in big hockey games.

What can then Floorball do? Tonnes of things! Why not have a goal market that instead start some live fire or why not some firecrackers/works when someone score?... Hey the nets are just an amazing chapter.

In Ice Hockey they have the most advanced goal cameras working as the big league scores..
This is NHL goal cameras url linked via
Floorballcentral now demands that as the WFC 2014 is played that real cool "in goal cameras" are to be used.

Then we can spin this off too into the world of the Internet of things = IOT.
So we challenge today's goal producers to notch up their development a bit. We think we need self scoring nets, connected to the internet, with both cameras - and pre-designs with platforms for cameras and other equipment. Yes we need radar sensors too that will be able to detect the speed of the ball as it flies into the net. In other words we need basic regular goals but also smart goals, with high tech abilities that would take the function of being a goal to just another and much more modern level. We need super deluxe goals to be used at the very largest games... Then we think one of this blogs very first post was on the subject to produce small nets with self-scoring functions... Yes we tried ourselves to mount some basic jingle-bells in a few of our nets for our kids - but it did not turn out as good in reality - but it is still a fast and rather interesting fix - audible scoring sounds.. kinda.

Hey you product developers - dive into your new drawings of tomorrows floorball goals now, please.

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!
