Posted on
  • a new tourney in NY, read the rules, I dont know much of hockey, but this sound like proper hockey rules
    is this the new direcction of polo???

    announcement
    rules

  • kinda liked it.

  • too many rules, boring.

  • too many rules, boring.

    +1 hockey < polo

  • if this is a 'new direction' for polo, polo is dying.

  • Polo has just been born here ...

  • praise the lord

  • Polo has just been born here ...

    "Congratulations!" said midwife Tom.
    "It's a bouncing baby ball."

  • sounds like they want to try a new thing out, with 8 players and all..
    Could be interesting to see how the game would be played

  • teams can be 10 people, but only 3 playing at any given time, like normal polo

  • it sounds awesome to me!

    really interesting, really fun, well worth a go.

    I don't think this is the direction polo will go, but i hope a few of its rules and standards on contact will cross over to urban hardcore bicycle roller ball (or whatever we are calling polo these days).

    i think people should only be incouraged in trying new things with our beloved past-time. it's very young, this event hasn't even happened (as far as i know, and i don't know much) and people are slating it. Let's see how it goes, i reckon it will be awesome fun for the teams and great to watch, with tactical changes, a whole bench of players on a team cheering and getting excited. sounds fucking awesome!

  • too many rules, boring.

    not really, the rules he describes are pretty much what most of play anyway, he's just written them down in a more florid manner. Clearly the americans need telling, how many times does it mention fighting? Apart from the number of players which i think is ridiculous and based too much on hockey i think it sounds fine. i guess its designed around first to 5 games rather than timed though...? In a ten minute game it would be ridiculous to sub that many times. Also without a dedicated coach telling the players who's up and who's out, it'd never work.
    "Gabes sub out!" "fuck off, i'm about to score." Gaaaabes, sub out!"
    "fuck off, watch this half line shot"
    "Gabes!!!!!!!"
    etc...

  • have that number of people in a team, has already been spoken here, no in a hockey way were player change "on the fly" if not in a footbal way.

    about the rules, I think the Euros were having more rules

  • "Gabes sub out!" "fuck off, i'm about to score." Gaaaabes, sub out!"
    "fuck off, watch this half line shot"
    "Gabes!!!!!!!"

    hehe

  • benchwarming blows.

  • with that said, it would be fun.

  • only cos of the hockey fights which would ensue
