Apparently Bob Jahelka, former co-owner of fl$ was owed 1 million dollars for his buyout in increments of 100k over the course of one year but after 4 months, the payments stopped and the owners of fl$ never answered any phone calls and emails for months so Bob is now suing them from 5 million dollars for breach of contract and is claiming that they are going bankrupt.

Did anyone else receive a copy of the lawsuit to their homes or emails?

Dated: May 8, 2018
W antagh, New York
To: Michael Winkoff, President
fl$ Lacrosse, Inc.
345 Main Street, Unit #8
Huntington, NY 11743
Michael Winkoff, Individually
47 Crescent Beach Drive
Huntington, NY 11743

VERIFIED COMPLAINT
PIONEER INITIATIVES, INC., independently, and Pioneer Initiatives, Inc., derivatively
on behalf of all creditors of fl$ Lacrosse, Inc. (the "Plaintiff') by and through its undersigned
counsel, LaMonica Herbst & Maniscalco, LLP, as and for its verified complaint (the
"Complaint") against defendants fl$ LACROSSE, INC. a/k/a FOR THE LOVE OF THE
GAME ("fl$ Lacrosse") and GREG MICHAEL WINKOFF, individually ("Winkoff')
( collectively, fl$ Lacrosse and Winkoff shall be referred to as "Defendants"), alleges as
follows:
Preliminary Statement
I. Plaintiffs bring these claims independently and derivatively on behalf of all
creditors of defendant fl$ Lacrosse for, among other things, breach of contract, fraudulent
inducement and breach of fiduciary duty. As more fully set forth herein, there can be no doubt
that the individual defendant Greg Michael Winkoff has engaged, and continues to engage, in a
fraud on the Plaintiffs and the creditors of the defendant fl$ Lacrosse. Through his manipulation, misrepresentation and fraudulent inducement, he caused a buyout of the defendant
fl$ Lacrosse and has been using the cash flow and revenue of the company for his own
personal purposes and diverting it to third parties for his benefit. In doing so, he has purposely
defaulted on a Consulting Agreement only four (4) months after execution despite having the
financial ability to pay it, and has threatened to place the company into bankruptcy or simply
shut it down. Not only does this jeopardize the continued viability of the defendant fl$
Lacrosse, but also the hundreds of players who participate in its programs and the various
contracts for tournaments over the next several years. His actions and behavior are inconsistent
with sound logical principles and reasonable business judgment. At the very least, he should be
removed from his position and this Court should consider the immediate appointment of a
receiver who will act in the best interest of the company, the players, and all of its creditors. But
for judicial intervention, the individual defendant Greg Michael Winkoff is likely to continue
diverting corporate assets for his personal benefit and that of his family to the detriment of
defendant fl$ Lacrosse and its creditors.
THE PARTIES
2. Plaintiff Pioneer Initiatives, Inc. is a New York corporation with a principal place
of business at 1400 Old Country Road, Westbury, New York 11590.
3. Defendant fl$ Lacrosse is a New York corporation with a principal place of
business at 345 Main Street, Unit #8, Huntington, New York 11743.
4. Defendant Greg Michael Winkoff is an individual citizen of the United States
with a personal residence at 4 7 Crescent Beach Drive, Huntington, New York 117 43.

like what, having kids honor their commitment to the team for the 6 week period they ask of that and not leave their other club teammates in the lurch? F Chaminade and their pompous attitude. Is that what you were referring to by messed up? IT seems to me the current issue is a disagreement between two former partners. Both seemed like decent people from my experience, hope they work it out.

Never understood why they had a storefront. That has to be high rent being on the main strip in Huntington village. Were (or are) they ever a significant player in the lax world? Honest question... I never heard much about them... always the bigger players like 91, Express, Igloo, etc. I see a helmet here and there. Do they have solid teams in the older age groups?.

a few years back they had a team that won the "national championship" in FL...since then, not much. the 20's are good. they have a lot of very average teams at younger ages, but solid program just not all in in term of year round dedication from the players and equal playing time across the board. works for some, we wanted more lax.

Was at a tourney in PA this summer. Their 2025 team played my son's team. Very Solid B team and could be A if they added one or two players on Attack. Goalie was a monster.

Better think twice about signing on with them. They will take the money from the team to pay for their legal defense. Be careful.

What are the things they have done? Having 5 teams per age group, using players from AS team play with lesser teams (and take playing time away from that teams players) so they can get a desired tournament result? Ok

That's ridiculous, who has 5 teams per age group! and they only have one team per age group. Maybe they had more in the past, i'm not sure. Also, if you didn't notice everyone brings kids from the A team down, from time to time, not nice but common.

Oops, guess I need to work my sarcasm. You are correct they only have one team per age group I was referring to one of the other programs out there that really has screwed people in the past. Although they were on the more expensive side they usually did try to do the right thing. I wonder if J thinks that now the issue has gone public and scared many away from the program that he will have an easier time getting what he feels he is owed.

They have had multiple teams at certain ages - they had 2 tams for 2021 for at least 1 or 2 seasons, and that was a horror show!

Didn't you guys know. Winkoff is one of the most influential people in the Lacrosse world as to US Magazine. Ever since that article he portrays himself as the almighty GOD of Long Island Lacrosse. He's says that he has started Lacrosse in urban communites on LI. Truth be told, he's never there or around them. Just when there is a camera.

His latest and greatest is he used the Long Island Lacrosse Showcase to line his own pocket. Then has the nerve to have his FL$ coaches coach teams and use that as an opportunity to poach players for FL$. You cannot trust that man or anyone associated with that program.

Wow you bring the tar and I'll bring the feathers and we can meet up in Huntington. Face it all Directors/Coaches do shady things to either line their pockets or bring kids into their program. Currently there is no regulatory body in place to monitor their activities. As parents we need to pick the one with the least warts.

You can't poach a player if they don't want to go to the organization

The two founders of the Corporation are having a disagreement on a buy out of ownership. Why do you think the customers deserve an explanation? What don't you know that a statement is going to tell you?

You sound like you have an axe to grind. Pretty much every team poaches and they aren’t bad compared to the other big programs on the island.

LOL. the guy listing all these "bad things" fl$ does/has done is comical and its clear he has an axe to grind and is grabbing at straws. He sounds desperate. Yawn. Been with other programs boys and girls-they run a nice program. Not perfect mind you, but none of the others are either.
