Special Olympic Floorball News in Jan 2014 and some usa female thoughts


It is our understanding that Special Olympics International are expected to take the formal decision if Floorball is to become recognized as a Special Olympic sport - or not - in January 2014!

We here say - they will say yes... and any other decision would just be a big mistake - that of course can be changed later on. By why would anyone like to deal with things like that late changes? No we say Floorball will be here to stay for Special Olympians.

So Special Olympians in the USA?
Are U ready for some Floorball soon?
Floorball is for sure ready for U!

Then the just finished female 2013 World Floorball Championships has been successful for many. But our page views at this blog could have been better. We think this has to do with the crazy qualification round that kicked out team USA from the play-off in Europe. Guess what the US Americans are not interested if they do not play - simple as that!
Here the sporting or administrative reasons to run the sport - just killed the opportunities for promotions in one of the most important future areas for Floorball? Dude.
In our opinions the people behind this decision should seriously try to figure out what their main task might be?
From a sporting perspective we say the team USA is better than some teams playing this WFC. From the marketing perspective few other countries (including banana-republics) can be so interesting to conquer for Floorball - as the USA?
How many administrators - does not realize this?

So no this part has not very much to do with sporting principles - then what law of physics demand geography as an ingredient for discrimination - beside of pure money? It is supposed to be fair right? Well to us a system that excludes one very important country - is that fair? Has the ranking system something to do with anything? http://www.floorball.org/default.asp?kieli=826&id_sivu=462&alasivu=462
And what in this ranking system grants 3 Asian/Oceanian countries to participate - but one American?

Nope - we kinda lost right now as we say - pls redo. ;-(

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!
