    Personally, struggle to see why you can't shoot from outside the circle.
    think it would be freaking dangerous if every one started shooting from every where

    they don't wear any protective gear ..other than during penalty corner rite

    Stunned at this attitude tbh. Can not see how anyone could possibly call hockey a "girl's sport" as though it's soft. Crazily dangerous game.

    Anyway, NZ to do the usual start-well-and-then-get-whipped-by-Australia/Germany/Netherlands trick.

    Used to go in goal without pads on at school, how to make a women's sport into a manly pursuit.

    It's clearly not girly because it's a soft sport, like women's rugby it attracts the manly 'butch' women types.

    It's a "girls' sport" in the UK at least because it's mainly played by (hey) girls.

    It's also non-contact, isn't it?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I am watching hockey after ages.The removal of offside rule has made it a poor spectator sport from my pov.

    Yeah it's a great sport, played it a fair bit when I was younger and might have another go at it when I get back to Oz. Thought I could play in Korea, but despite them having a national team it seems like no-one actually plays it.

    Some spectacular goals are scored in hockey.

    Just noticed Matthew Butturini's name in the team (at least he was in 2009), he played in my local comp as a junior, although admittedly years after me. Nathan Eglington went to my school too. Don't think he's still in the team though, was in Athens. A bloke whose name is exactly the same as mine and who also comes from Kingscliff played for Aus last year too. It's kind of big in our area.

    It depends...a ball to the side of the head is contact. There's always contact to some degree, but you can't shoulder charge or tackle with your arms or feet obviously.

    No, it's not a non-contact sport. Non-contact sports are ones like Netball and Basketball where there are very few instances where it's legal to touch an opponent. Hockey has the contact rules of football, i.e, you can touch another player, but within reason.

    Saw on the news this morning that Pakistan lost their game to Canada 3-2. Following the game, the entire team announced their retirements. Wtf.

    Anyway, NZ playing off for 9th tonight. Hopeless result.
