Hawks has multiple kids playing football championship on Saturday - pulled out of NAL and jumped in Fall Lax Showdown on Sunday
Probably has more to do with this:
Best player is still gimpy. (Cannot compete with good teams without him) Do not want to play real competition at NAL, so they go to second rate tournament to save coach and parents the embarrassment of under achieving. Dad that yells "Yeah Buddy" can claim another championship for his son.
Does it make you sad that your kid gets handled by multi sport athletes and aren't lax obsessed like you. Maybe get junior on the football field and he won't get steam rolled every time he plays Hawks on the lax field and you won't have to hear "Yeah Buddy".
