can we please get rid of stationary picks! we banned obstruction years ago yet we still allow this no skill shit.
reminder: WE ARE PLAYING A PERMANENT POWERPLAY/PENALTY KILL so we don’t need the same picks that they use in basketball to get open shots because WE ARE PLAYING A PERMANENT POWERPLAY/PENALTY KILL.
we’re banning hooking to “speed up the game” yet we incentivize stationary picks that literally slow players down to a standstill. the faster you play the more likely you are to break your bike and your bones. no matter how skilled you are you cannot decelerate from 18mph as fast as a player at any speed turning perpendicular to you and grabbing a handful of brake.
i heard over and over again that you should “play the ball” instead of hook. how is tripodding to screen a defender and possibly make them crash into you “playing the ball”?
to speed up the game we have to remove all obstruction tactics.
