Beaver1224: If you're getting thrown out anyway, might as well make it count, amirite?
Walker: Typical thug behavior that's becoming more and more common in sports today....especially in the NBA.
kindms: HS lacrosse can be brutal. You have really young / small kids playing with a mix of soccer players and football players. The size differences can be very big.
Rapmaster2000: Walker: Typical thug behavior that's becoming more and more common in sports today....especially in the NBA.This isn't surprising. You see, violence is glorified in their culture.[encrypted-tbn2.google.com image 259x194]Typical THUG.
Mikey1969: kindms: HS lacrosse can be brutal. You have really young / small kids playing with a mix of soccer players and football players. The size differences can be very big.Not only that, but it's very much a contact sport. I consider it an hockey to be far more contact than football, you're constantly in someone's face, pressuring them, hounding them, it wold be enough to make even best friends get into fights. People make fun of lacrosse all the time, but I think that it and hockey are more physical in-your-face than any of the other sports, then probably rugby, then football. I know I sure as hell wouldn't want to play lacrosse, be totally exhausted when you're done, and probably hate people you've been friends with your whole life by the end of the game.
Mark Ratner: Lacrosse sucks. There. Someone had to say it.
Iceberg659: The guy was absolutely a douche for touching the other player but that was a FIFA level flop.
Theaetetus: Beaver1224: If you're getting thrown out anyway, might as well make it count, amirite?Because the first one might get you a suspension but probably not too much more since it was arguably during the course of play, but the second one will be criminal charges and a civil suit for battery.
FreakinB: I think the story here is that high school lacrosse is being played in Florida. On the one hand, I'm happy it's expanding because it's a great game. On the other hand, this is the one sport where Long Island is a powerhouse and it would be nice to not lose that.Seriously though, what the fark, guy?
GlobalThunder: He was wearing a helmet, why is he crawling on the ground crying? I'm sure that it wasn't Tyson that punched him...
FreakinB: GlobalThunder: He was wearing a helmet, why is he crawling on the ground crying? I'm sure that it wasn't Tyson that punched him...Not sure about a punch, but I will say from experience that the face mask is actually the least painful place to get hit with a shot since it's the one spot where you're really well-padded. Once in practice I got hit on the ankle by a shot from our big, hardest-shooting attackman. I wasn't injured but it hurt like a motherfarker. I have no idea how goalies do it.
Publikwerks: If I was the ref, I would have tossed the team and ended the game as a forfeit.
kindms: It is a great sport, never really liked them adding a shot clock tho.
