  • Looks like New York is pushing to create some kind of standardised goal width and height (Though Doug is vocal of the fact this is pointless without a standardised court size too).

    The cross bar on the goals looks nice and simple though.

    What do you all think?

  • no riding throught.... could be OK, when we get use too

    I think I will rather not to have one, as a keeper that I'm it is easier not to have any thing, but I do understand that the game is moving in the direccion of getting standardised

  • Might make some people change their goalkeeping style, not being able to put their bike through (rather then across) the goal.

  • I will be happy to give it a go one day for throw-ins, to try

  • Might make some people change their goalkeeping style, not being able to put their bike through (rather then across) the goal.

    That would be my concern, I spend a fair amount of time in goal, and sometimes rolling through the goal is useful, but as rik said, id be up for giving it a try...

  • its not cone height.

  • yep B, it wil be crossbar high, same thing different name

  • its not cone height.

  • I think being able to ride through the goal is pretty important especially as the contact on goalkeeping players increases. Otherwise it's just going to need to be reset every 2 minutes.

  • you can't ride through the goal in hockey.

  • yeah, but this isn't hockey.

  • what?

  • Standardised width - yes (too many varying bike lengths, can make it bigger than a bike to make goal-keeping more technical, easier to reset cones after impact)

    Standardised height - yes (for all the reasons we agreed a 'standard' height for the league)

    Use of a crossbar - not sure, would be interested in playing with it in place.. but I can only think of a couple of instances where it would have benefitted the game being played and a lot of instances where it would be annoying

  • its not cone height.

  • cone height is over rate

  • hub hieght

  • ewok height

  • Snowy height?

    :p

  • no polo no reference to non polo players height

  • the goal must be too big cos in the photo it makes brendan look so wee

  • no polo no reference to non polo players height

    I'll get my coat

  • i love you jonny, but right now i just don't get you. It's not you, i'm sure its me.

  • nice idea, shame its not cone height.

  • I'd like to try this. I think we are eventually going to have to have a crossbar.

  • if we don't have one now, why will we HAVE to have one in the future?
