Well,......lets see. Maybe the kid has actually said he wants to go to Chaminade. Maybe his three older brothers went to Chaminade. Maybe the kids parents have told their friends in town that they are going to send their son to Chaminade.
Lord knows none of that would ever be discussed by the GC lacrosse mafia, and we all know you have one.....every town has the guys that control the programs.

I don't even live in the town and I've known who was going to Chaminade.

And you should really consider some form of anger management.


got a phone call from the HC just because there was a rumor my 8th grade son might go elsewhere...he just wanted to make sure it wasn't true...so...there may be some validity to this.


Lol. You're so full of yourself it's unbelievable. Just be happy your held back son is a decent player. It'll all catch up and even out. Such a wannabe

Hey GC Duke dad. This quote is on the wall at Duke. You left out the first line by the way. But I find it funny how you are quoting this and using a comparison because people are talking about a team of kids who smoke pot? That essay was intended about REAL men in a REAL struggle. Not a bunch of over privileged PH's. Makes you look foolish comparing them.

Why don't you get up from behind the keyboard that you are hiding behind, grab a whistle and volunteer your time like these so called oafs are doing. We are always looking for more volunteers to assist with our program. Boy, it must be a nice view from the cheap seat, huh.


AGREED, That's them! I've seen it too. Very accurate. Either way, you are either in or you are out and some that think they are in, really are not and never will be. Very phony, lots of plastic.

Isn't the girls youth program is disarray? Something with the director was swept under the rug.

What goes on in GC goes on in almost every lacrosse town on Long Island, this is not special or unique in any way. If you think WI, Ward Melville, Northport, Smithtown, etc, are any better your crazy. Politics, favoritism, and nepotism has always been a part of youth sports and always will be. Get over it and tell your kid to work hard, get good grades and keep his nose clean. If youre not happy with his situation, send him somewhere else. There are great school options athletically and academically for people who want to get away from town politics.

You call a bunch of 18 year old's names? You want to talk about real men? You sir, are no man. You are a petty small person who needs to bash a bunch of kids for a mistake. Go away troll, get a life. Leave Garden City to Garden City. Where do you live? I dare anyone posting here to let us all know about your town. You won't because then all your little secrets will come out.

Smithtown East destroyed West Islip, wasnt even a game, score could have been worse actually. Looks like East and Massapequa on a collision course for Long Island Championship.

Get off the pipe my friend...



He might be on the pipe but it is totally true! They went the usual route a sales and trading job on wall street that don't exist anymore. Their daddys got them jobs that their daddys got them. Now they are all unemployed and unemployable. They were all born on third base and now they're moving to Florida driving ice cream trucks.

Better yet, get your son committed as early as possible. Sit back and watch the show. Play, don't play, who cares. Keep your son's chops up by playing in summer. With the exception of a hand full of districts, HS ball is god awful. Total step down from summer ball, coaches, kids and parents that have no clue. Parents hoping and praying there kids get some kind of HS glory... on a 6-8 mid level HS team. Total waste of time. I think if someone could put together a spring alternative for the highly competitive player, you probably could put together a few really good teams on LI. make it an alternative to the HS season. Go and play private prep schools. Would be such a great alternative to this garbage. Most of kids would be commits, so playing time could be spread out. No issues, no pay to play BS, no politics, just competitive lacrosse for competitive players. Please spare the HS glory crap. Like I said, with the exception of a hand full of teams. I know there are some good programs, ours, and many, many other aren't one of them.

Hilarious and totally true. I played lax against many of these GC toolbags in high school and later in college circa '86 through '91. A few had real athletic talent but most did not. Arrogant and entitled with their little GC Men's and Westhampton CC shirts. And yes, most got jobs on the Street because their daddy hooked them up. Now these clowns are ruining youth lax while looking for the next chapter in their "career". And by the Manhasset, you're in the same exact bucket. Interchangeable.
