This weekend there is the Crab Fest tournament in Baltimore. On Saturday, each team will play in 3 games, consisting of 4 -10 minute running time quarters. On Sunday, each team will most likely play in 2 games of equal length. So at most, each team will play 200 minutes of running time lacrosse. On your drive Friday afternoon from Westchester to Baltimore, 200 minutes may not get you out of New Jersey. It makes no logical sense, other than to enrich the clubs and tournament owners, to do this. Local league - 10 teams, no travel, no Holiday Inns, and weekends free to do other things. Didn't even factor in that many teams have 25 players on them so the 200 minutes of lacrosse goes down substantially.
