You are completely wrong. So much talent?
The Farmingdale coaches could not have gotten more out of the players they had. With the exception of their goalie, they don't have a player that would start for Syosset or Pequa.

nonsense, DELETED for Farmingdale played a great game. He was really impressive, and I'm a Pequa dad. Kid was all over the field, hustle like no one else. He was the early mvp in my opinion. The Farmingdale DELETED is an absolute beast.

Let's all enjoy great Memorial Day weekend showing respect to our veterans, and remember all the important things in life including family and good health. We are all fortunate to live in an area with top-notch competitive lacrosse... It makes all of the players better.

NCAA D1 Championship weekend as well.

Life is good!

[quote=Anonymous]does anyone care about what's going on in Manhasset.....enough is enough with the favoritism and nepotism Coach's son on the first middy line that never comes off the field... People complaining about the attack scoring too many goals and never coming off the field. The only reason for that is so the first middy line can try and have some meaningful production...which,other than the UNC commit, they don't! There is minimal production...and only against inferior teams! Look at the facts and not anyone's opinion....can't hide the facts. Has anyone ever seen a man up squad that can't score?? and yet is in every time? The members of man up and players who have seen the field this season and past seasons are the result of favoritism and nepotism. Coach's son , and friends, loyal team 32 paying customers and sons of employee coaches of team 32...so is this pay to play at a public high school..... Second and Third attack and middy lines have barely hit the field this season. Not acceptable Manhasset. Where is the privilege of being a senior and putting in the hard work for 4 years? We have heard that the best kids are on the field??? Not according to the numbers!!! School board and administration must investigate and take action. Need more people to write letters....anonymous is the only way because as we all have seen, those that complain are severely punished. It is terrible that the administration allows this....you want the players to play for the team? You need a coach who coaches for the team! and now...when you thought it couldn't possibly get worse...the freshman son and his friends etc. have been brought up to varsity...playing over seniors! you just can't make this up. it is OUTRAGEOUS and a conspiracy that we are allowing. Write in to the Board Members and Superintendent

All true and just the tip of the iceberg of what 's been going on with this program. The Administration is well aware of the issues but have chosen to ignore it.

I'm a coach in Suffolk so truthfully I could care less. But you obviously have an issue with the coaching. But I can tell you Farmingdale is not as good as Massapequa. Your judgment is cluded. Watched the game on MSG varsity. Your goalie stood on his head in the first half. You got owned on faceoffs. Your midfielders are not as good. You have 3 great players. Massapequa has one star better than your three and the rest of the team top to bottom is better. Want to know why you lost? Because an attackman couldn't put away what should have been the your 10th goal and then you couldn't clear the ball. You cannot expect your star goalie to make all the saves. Teams think they are better than they really are when your goalie keeps you in all the games. I know it hurts losing to a rival. But a reality check is in order.

Brings me to my second reason. People figured out they can make a lot of money off everyone who thinks there kid is the next best thing. Even the equipment companies joined in by raising prices on everything. Do you know all equipment is made the same and do you know what it cost to make a plastic head?? Because of this parents (some anyway) can not afford to buy 2 helmets.


Lmao Town Pride? Youre kidding me right? Do me a favor send me your address so I can come over and we can watch Remember the Titans together and hold hands and chant koombaya together.

===========================

Coach,

As u are from Suffolk county and have time to analyse the Daler/Pequa game one must assume that the team u coach has likely ended their season. Stick to analyzing your own team's losses. Giving up a 5 goal lead in the 4th quarter is a coaching failure more than anything else. Pequa may have been the better team but Farmingdale was well positioned to win the game. All the players tried their best.

Town Pride has many meanings. Town "A" had a great thing with some real good young talent coming through the past few years. Each year pulling up a few MS to play (sometimes missing a player or 2, but who doesnt). One might say they had a group that was best on the island at their age group. Town "A"'s Varsity would make the playoffs but were perennial one and dones.

Even with the promise of playing and being a playoff contender the town parents didn't want to hold back kids, the town parents wanted better for them and supported the players when the kids decided to pursue other opportunities and outlets. (Chaminade/St Anthony's/St. John the Baptist) That is town Pride!

The Athletic Dept on the other hand did nothing to help cultivate and foster a solid program. Always poo poo'd the notion of travel. Town "A" Lost a good portion of the best players to the Catholics. Not because they really wanted to go (or the grass was greener) but because school "A" both academically and athletically didn't care if they stayed or not.

School board couldn't care less their kids were now done with College. Heck Principle couldn't keep the affairs of the school straight and had a transient Superintendent at best for a few years. Its not that there wasn't pride, there just was no promise!

Like I said, parents were happy for those athletes who pursued a dream, why, because they knew the town HS was not going to help them. That to me is town pride!

That's a dumb post. If his team still is in it , you think he can't spend 1 hour to watch another game. And maybe his team lost in the semis . That's bad ? If it is a coach , I feel he is accurate . And BTW , I'm an assistant of a Nassau team that is out . I guess I can only analyze my team ...
