If a coach wants to make a point about something he needs to be aware of how it looks if he uses his son at the example. There are some good things about a dad coaching his son. But it goes wrong way more then it goes well. And perception is reality in this world. So a Dad coaching should be avoided at all costs.

You have no idea what was said or not said to his own player with the Hawks hit. You are only pissed because his Twitter account actually gets viewed and all the other dads accounts have 12 followers. If it can change the way these kids are being taught/allowed to play the game, then publish away. Again, you have no idea what is or is not being brought up so stop taking your envy out on an anonymous board, you have a problem, pick up the phone and call the man or better yet, contact him through the Twitter account you seem so familiar with. Other parents of non 91 kids are okay with someone pushing for rule changes in youth lacrosse - these are little kids- not high schoolers. Those who can actually play the game and do not rely on hitting are glad someone is stepping forward.


With all this talk about players unchecked, was curious with what tactic most would use in the situation of an unchecked aggressive player making cheap shots at your team over and over. If officials arent calling anything but a 1 minute releasable penalty if that and opposing coaches calling it a legal hit what are you to do??

Many years ago the solution would be retaliation with your biggest guy. Or have fastest shooter pluck him with a shot. Something along those lines. Basically show the brute that there are consequences. Now a days that is not a option it seems.

After a while most players and coaches get tired of watching your teammates getting flattened or possibly hurt without repercussions.

Unless you are the coach or parent of this kid that was hit, you need to butt out. It's not your responsibility to go on a personal crusade on behalf of this player. Or to use him to further demonize this coach.

And just as many would disagree with you - dad coaches are much more vested. We have had both and prefer the dad coach who cares about the team and is not just there to get their kid on another team for free. How does it look showing your own son getting pummeled by a player out of control- personally I can respect that and the call for tougher rules/consequences to coaches and kids who consistently play the game the right way.

Well it really can be looked at many ways. But if it was not his son or if he was not a dad coaching his sons team. Then his view point would not look like it had more then one meaning. This is why Dads at these higher levels should not be coaching there sons team. [lacrosse] if dad wants to coach coach the team above or below your sons team.

On that day the MPLL was playing NCAA rules. I've watched the video several times in slow mo. The offensive player get's inside of his defender and then opens his right shoulder to take the shot. The midfielder drops down to slide and initiates contact with his left shoulder to the offensive player's right shoulder. The force of the hit turns the kid clockwise and he hits the ground. Clearly not in the back. Close to high. That and the fact it was a bigger kid vs smaller draws the flag as all youth refs are told to err on the side of caution. However under the NCAA rules there should not have even been a foul. The ref off screen threw the flag. The ref in the video who had a perfect view hesitates before reaching into his pocket before realizing the other ref bailed him out. He saw what I see - which is a legal hit under the rules but one we don't want in youth games. MPLL changed rules to make the hit illegal under 3 step rule. Still posting on social media and calling out the kid and coaches is a doucher move. Did MM know what rules he was playing under before the season?

Scary you have watched a 2022 video several times. Interesting you are questioning he refs and slinging mud at MM. You must be a joy to be around in the stands. Think,we will stick with the refs call as well as the coach opinion that knows a bit about lacrosse.

Better watch out for Hawks Madlax scored 13 on Crabs and then only scored 3 on Hawks. Their defense is outstanding. Good luck scoring double digits on them

No one needs to sling mud at Millon. He does fine embarrassing himself. I can't believe that no one from Rough Riders has exposed him for what he said to one of their other players on the field that day. Everyone heard it according to those in attendance, but since I was not, I will not repeat it. Suffice it to say that it was inappropriate and alarming and the source is credible.

Sounds like you have a personal vendetta and are trying to stir up trouble. As you say, you were not there-were you out checking on another field/division? RR are big boys...they can handle it themselves without your involvement. Think MM is doing okay and certainly knows more about the game than someone who has not played and is stirring the pot.

The trouble with MM is that he is in love with himself. Needs to act like a normal coach and get off his self given high horse. He may know the game, but so do many many other coaches and they are not calling out other teams, yet I am sure they have cause but elect to act like an adult and not expose young kids. Everyone wants the game to be safer, but this is not the way to reach that goal.

You're right. Roughriders did handle it. Because of how MM acted(including what he said to the RR player on the field) they have pulled out of his tournament and HOCO had to change their schedule because they refuse to be on the field with him.

Considering Brian Reese is the HC of the 2022 RR team, this should tell you all you need to know about how people feel about MM. When the coach of the Bayhawks is refusing to play you, it should be a bit of a red flag.
