    Default Field Hockey

    Anyone else here play?

    It's like the European version of Ice Hockey, but on artificial surfaces like Astro-Turf etc.

    Yeah I played all through school up until last year. Fun game. So much opportunity for pain considering its non contact.

    All I know about it is that here in the US it's mostly a sport for husky/ ugly girls. You'll get the occasional hot one playing..

    Ya, field hockey in the states is very watered down and females only. Sounds like you're talking about what we call that broomball

    what is it with the states & watered down sports, take football (rugby, not soccer) for example, why the chainmail & armor? I love it better the english or aussie way, its nasty & dirty, just as it should be

    there is that thing that plays like field hockey, but it has a net on a stick (dunno what its called) I like seeing that though...

    I'm from England and at my secondary school the field hockey is pretty girl orientated although guys do it in lessons sometimes. I do hockey after school and it's pretty fun.

    Lacrosse! My son has been playing that since he was 4. LOVES it! And it's a rough sport too. Some people don't realize that, but it is.

    Here is is getting creamed in the shoulder. He had the ball, and the other kid came at him with his stick.


    Still running with the ball, after knocking a kid down.

    Lacrosse is savage. I have no issue with American Footballers wearing pads either, rugby players have a lot of protection in the rules about how you can hit someone, and most tackles are made with little run up, for sure not as many open field full tilt hits to the upper body like in american football.
