Gordon Banks, Sepp Maier, the Duck and Floorball


Gordon Banks and Stoke City is just the goalie of all the goalies. He is in to us here in some way also very connected to the flat hat like a true blue collar British Soccer hero.
This is soccer keeping at the level of Vladislav Tretjak in Ice Hockey.



Today Mr. Kluger and Mr. StÃ¥hlberg discussed Floorball goalies and their use of gloves or not and it struck us here that maybe the discussion for a new sport like Floorball still rests at the age of the beginning - just like Gordon Banks is one of the first very large keepers ever in Soccer.

But it was interestingly enough Sepp Maier from Germany that made the real difference - as it came to the discussion of wearing goalie gloves or not..
It was Sepp Maier that went from Hard Work to Innovative and clever work...



Forget the duck - look at his gloves. Wikipedia call them Micky mouse sized gloves...
We used to call them "toilet lid sized gloves".

Floorball? Why not? How big goalie gloves are allowed in Floorball? - Would toilet lid sized gloves help a Floorball goalie too? And are bare hands still that very clever? Or...?

Maybe this post is justa duck?

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!
