What other major sport, that doesn't have a goalie, out there has that huge of a target zone compared to the object going in?
The rim of a basketball goal is twice the diameter of a basketball -- even more for balls smaller than the standard men's size. The cup on a ball golf green is more than twice the diameter of a golf ball. American football and Aussie Rules football both have very large goal posts to kick the football through. The pockets on a pool table are more than two balls wide. Bowling alleys are several times wider than a bowling ball of any size.
