Gladiator Games - but it is recreational sports that is what 3D printing is for modern production


Recently we read this story about many skulls found in London, chopped off during some roman era that allowed Gladiator Games.
Today we still have gladiator games = more soft versions, no skull chopping. But athleticism driven to its peak performance. And as a consequence we all have much pain in these top notch gladiator crews with physical and physiological impacts. But they still draw attention and money like nothing else.

Hrmm. If we now say that the old industrial production process with one hub that concentrates production and needs mass distribution to survive.. Like - it is almost the same as media mass communication...(think TV). If this thought is stressed further - the big game and elite sports is just another depiction of centralized authority the drives almost automated responses? Or are these conclusions too rough, rudimentary or bold? Maybe they do not even relate?
Another recent article claimed that many top notch college athletes in the USA could not even read. They are at school to play - elite level sports.
You make you own conclusions. But Floorballcentral may perhaps suspect that the level of intellectual talents are not as high in sports - as compared to medical, computer or more scientific or other specialized University educations... Could this relate to the pace of sport developments?
We also say here that the current focus on the big game is a joke from the health perspective. Millions of people in front of a flat screen drinking beer when 40 guys gets exercise? It is true that big money runs to where the business is. OOpsss now we aim at sensitive domains...
Still - it is our opinion that sports fill a fundamental basic and good function for public health. But recreational sports is where we have the true masses engaged - millions NOT drinking beer in front of a TV.

So why is all the money going to the elite players and nothing to the recreational group that instead has to pay? But obviously this group brings most health and benefits to life? Seems like the capitalistic system needs some tweaking?
As networks shift from being centralized to decentralized (you make your own stuff on a 3D printer at home instead). You do not read the big paper - you write your own blog instead... etc etc... Could the recreational sports head for a new glorious and rich future? And elite sports importance fade?

A 30 second spot for advertising at the super bowl cost about 4 million dollars plus production costs...
How much Floorball could that not have brought to American kids instead - and you know what with the right media approach - Floorball could become a much better form of advertising too.
We know it.

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!
