international hockey federation have changed rules
what do you think about these rules
good or bad
in my thoughts not so good
All things changes like penalty corner and corner so bad.
not interesting format:(
these changes to hockey rules are implemented due to commercialize it and make it exciting fast. but i think failed
these are my opinion
share yours and poll for it
Hockey is the most exciting sport to watch or play (street hockey - couldn't skate if my life depended on it).
Football - there are too many whistles. Basketball - too much repetition. Baseball - too slow / too many pauses.
I agree that hockey is exciting, but it just hasn't picked up as much as football in the States. I think the whole culture around football - drinking and eating - attracts more people than hockey. Also, baseball, basketball and hockey all have very long seasons and many more games than football. Since the supply of games in football is limited, people tune in more often when it's on.
I think I'm one of the people who could barely tell that the rules had changed. If you played one game with the old rules and then one with the new rules, maybe, maybe, I could tell.
Hockey is somewhat enjoyable to watch. In theory at least, I enjoy it more than some other sports on television.
I think all sports should get equal chance. It's sad that the market for some sports are so grim that the rule had to change to make it appeal to wider audience. I didn't like when 20-20 version of cricket came. Now I think it has done better for cricket.
As far as the hockey is concern, I have never followed it so can't tell much about the state of the game although I enjoyed the hockey played on ice.
