News that somewhat drowned, plus aggressive hunger

It is tricky with a World Floorball Championship. One tricky part is how to release news that may drown in the big stream of all other news.
We think that this probably happened to the excellent news that four new members has just now joined the World family of Floorball nations. We would not be surprised if this will be announced again. But until then...

So let us just again shed some spot-light on the fact that the IFF just has released; - India, Indonesia, Iran, and Jamaica are all new members of the International Floorball Federation.

India is utterly interesting due to its long strong traditions in the field (ehum) of field hockey - a sport that has a few things that reminds perhaps people about Floorball? India is also a rather huge country - if we say so... and measure how many people that lives in India (and they are mainly young too)... Well, it is big.
No shadow on the other three countries - they have all the position to become key Floorball power houses in their own part of the world... too.

Then of course we must dwell a bit on the psychological idea to list the countries that already are in... We have seen this in the USA too at the national level.  All attempts to list who is in - is just the normal way to do things... And that is OK.

But we like to challenge normal thinking a bit here.
Why not do the opposite instead?

Why not list the countries that does NOT have Floorball instead and then make it a top priority to get these on board?
Nope, we do not talk about internal memos - we talk about broad communications.
Or in the local case - If someone would list all the states, cities, and towns across America that does not play Floorball yet (we are talking about a massive undertaking and a big list. here, he, he)  -  A wild project - but, we suspect that the incentive to get things going would be staked up a bit.

Ok, ok, ok, doing things this way might just be a little tiny psychological twist on things.

But we suspect that the list of missing countries - or states - or cities - would move the focus from a more content state like - "look what good things we have" - to a very eager - and an aggressively hungry level of state? Like - "This is what we want to do now!"

What do you say? Word's free...

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!
