Nobody else discussing just how disgusting the Crab Feast tournament was tilted to cement the Crabs' run to the championship game? Your pool had 3 A/B teams and then the playoff bracket was set so that you played your affiliate (B) team in the semifinals.
Additionally, a team that is 1-2 making the playoffs when four other teams finished higher in record and then goals allowed is quite frankly just wrong. But it certainly did ensure that no actual contenders made it into the brackets to knock Crabs off early.
Yes the all knowing Crab director was crafty with this one. He even convinced a strong team like Brotherly Love to throw the game so his B team could go undefeated in Pool play and make the semi final. Take off your tinfoil bucket helmet. Your conspiracy theory does not work. Was anyone shocked to see Crabs Hawks in the final? NO, anyone who knows anything about 2023 lacrosse would have put these two in the final. BTW the two other semi final teams played a one goal game the week before in PA.
