Dads with a kid who plays attack will always complain about something when his rockstar gets shutdown. Either the kid plays dirty or he is a holdback that’s drove himself to the game. Heck, you guys already singled a kid out by his number on a specific team, so go ahead and post his name on here so the rest of us know who he is and can be on the lookout for this kid.
Nobody is complaining because their son was shut down, or didn’t get a highlight reel. The issue is that this player has consistently played dirty and deliberately injured other players, who also happen to be twelve. You can smear me all you like and tell my son to go take up tennis, baseball, etc., but you are not doing this player any favors by attacking those who call out his dirty play. lacrosse is small world, and once a player gets a reputation, it is difficult to change.
You are not doing yourself any favors by talking about a 12 year old. At most you have seen a handful of games. My son has played on the Same team and I have seen all of it. Some great plays, some that have gotten penalties.
Stop complaining because you have seen a few late hits. Life is a matter of perspective. Maybe you are seeing it from the wrong side. Maybe I am seeing it from the wrong side but I have seen way more games than you have.
My son no longer plays on that team but I will defend that player from some dads attacking a 12 year olds reputation.
