Lacrosse is most political sport out there but you have to look at the roots of lacrosse in this country. It started in wealthy, prep schools. Game was designed for the affluent and the rich are very good at positioning, negotiating, etc for their causes. They design the game to and selection to get what they want. If you think politics stops in high school...it only gets worse. It's who you know and how much money can you push in the right direction.
You should watch Crooked Arrows.
