What do the Floor Hockey people think right now?

We do not know.
But we love to speculate a bit.
Let us toss in some barebone facts:

- In January 2013 Floorball is a part of the 2013 Special Olympic Winter World Games as a demonstration sport in Korea

- In August 2013 we discover that Sher-wood - the old classic and excellent Ice Hockey stick producer has certified their own Floorball ball and - we guess that Sher-wood soon will have their own Floorball sticks on the market too (most likely within a year & we just picked up news that they just had a number of Floorball sticks certified)

- In October 2013 USA Hockey release its own Floorball stick designed by Salming and Floorballplanet

- By November 2013, rumour indicate a larger municipal community in north America to consider a wider replacement of Floor Hockey with Floorball

- In the same month Dallas Stars not only introduce their own Floorball stick for kids but also a comprehensive program aimed with support towards schools for their very own fitness program introduction with Floorball

So the first question is - do the Floor Hockey guys see this? And if not - well we do not have any further questions.
But if they do - as we see things they have two options - either to pretend its raining and not do a thing. And as we think here - go down with the flag in top.
Or can they meet this - can they answer - can Floor Hockey titans like Mylec and Franklin be fast enough to develop their own comprehensive lines of Floorball equipment or will they use other strategies?

Times are exciting right now.

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!
