Random thoughts on Kim Nilsson


No this is not really random thoughts on Kim Nilsson but more about the environment that he acts within.

The other day Kim Nilsson scored 5 out of 7 scores in a top notch game for AIK. That is what we call a real "storm-hat" trick and yes we indeed agree with AIK as they say that he is - if not the worlds best Floorball player - at least he is one of them.
This bounces over to the video of him doing all these goals - it jumped up at solid tango and - either they do not have an embed code for this clip - or we could not find it. Irrespective of this the reason - we think it is seriously bad that the promotional tools for floorball is not in place for Floorball at this level. SIBF or SSL must shape things up in this respect.

Then it is announced today that Kim is going to Grasshoppers in Switzerland. The exact salary is not disclosed but it for sure sounds like - most likely one of the best professional Floorball contracts ever - and that is not bad. We think this is good for both Kim and the sport itself.
Still we imagine with instead cross-national leagues that we have mentioned here before - like a North European league and a Central European league - we think the player compensation - would be even greater.
That is why, we like the #floorballwithoutborders tag line ourselves here...

What do you like? #floorballwithborders ?

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!
