I've played and coached hockey a long time, some kids WANT to be goalie for this reason alone.



You do realize you just reinforced dalej42's point, right?



Agreed.

For American football, most of the special team guys are pretty thankless, especially kick-off or punt coverage. Often, they don't even have to make a tackle, because of touchbacks, fair catches, out of bounds, etc.. When they do make a tackle, their name is barely mentioned and the game just goes on.

Yes I have watched a hockey game and never said it was not an important position.
