    Thanks for posting the quesiton Doug, it’s an important discussion to have. hardcourtbikepolo.com is starting to feel all 2007 again. Where’s Ben?I think this is an interesting debate, one in which I’d like to hear more about what the advantages of timed games are, something I haven’t read anywhere here or elsewhere. I hear the words better , and legitimate , or absolutely necessary with no supporting arguments or attention to the implications on the game itself. Sorry, but Roller Derby has nothing to do with bike polo.This issue is very important for bike polo as it changes the entire nature and focus of the game. In timed games a team can sit on a lead and slow the game down, trapping and obstructing for a one-goal win, sticking two people in net while boring the crowd and themselves to tears. In games to five both teams must press for the entire length of the game to score five goals, there is no passive sitting on a lead. In timed matches players will game the clock, using it instead of the ends of their mallets to decide a match. Without offensive rules like icing in hockey or the shot clock in basketball to force players to move the ball up court, games will degrade into boring one-goal affairs, with european-style goalies protecting small leads while dumping the ball down the court to waste time off the clock. Timed games end promising come-backs via the clock instead of a goal, prolong a slim lead, and end in dis-satisfying ties. Is that when you flip the coin Adam?In games to five both teams are required to stay offensive and the play remains lively for the entire length of the game, from the opening joust to the winning goal. It is common to see teams rally from three and four goal deficits, something that would become far more rare in timed games, smarter (and more boring) to sit on that lead.Each and every game to five carries the potential of becoming a beer-point game with a thrilling sudden-death game winning goal that is the most exciting thing in sport. Players like games to five, it allows them to decide the course of the game, not the clock. At tournaments everyone is pissed when time runs out, but no one complains when the fifth goal goes in.Games to five all have at least five goals in them, sometimes nine. Timed games may only have one. Games to five generally last from between 10 to 15 minutes, perfectly reasonable for tournament play.I’m all for 12 to 15 minute timed games at competitions until the final eight, but after that point I want to see beer-point final matches that reward goal-scoring prowess, not the ability to sit on a two-goal lead for ten minutes. If organisers can’t keep a tournament on schedule, is changing the very structure (and focus) of the game the best answer we can come up with? More courts, better scheduling, and better facilities for players (bike racks, better info boards, entries and exits, viewing areas ) would solve scheduling issues better than changing the nature of the sport would.Too many sports to mention do not have time limits and benefit greatly from the drama that is provided by playing out the score instead of playing out the clock. Bike polo has many of its own conventions and I think games to five is like nine innings or double match point or 3 downs, all part of the unique nature of the sport. Let the players decide the games, not the clock.Good luck disallowing a goal on a shot in the finals as time runs out. Ben, please shoot that shot.
