Cheating on Wax?


We ran into this goalie blog that discussed the glide and slide of things. This is when the goalie slide over the floor - knees down from post to post - on, his or her, knees full Floorball style.
It is a well preserved truth that a goalie in Floorball that is able to slide good also moves fine over the floor covering the net.

But to slide in the best way over the floor - it is good or at least beneficial if you either spray your pants with some silicone or why not wax them up with a candle?

Problem is that this is in most leagues illegal - why?
Now you better think - do you think the floor gets slippery if it is full of wax or silicone or not>?
Can a forward slip maybe and is this advancement thing cheating?

We think it is. But then we know people in baseball that spit on the ball too.
What to do? Maybe just stay calm and keep on playing Floorball huh?

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!
