Long Ireland tourney looked like LAX. Only slightly less physical and no FO. It was definitely not girl's LAX.

Yes, my son played this past weekend @ St Paul's in Garden City. Play day format, so no playoffs or standings really.
Biggest difference with the contact was basically eliminating the face-off. Remainder of the game was pretty much normal as ever. Refs allowed body checking within the normal rules. I wouldn't call it "Non-Contact" at all.

The point was made on another thread here that this actually gave teams more reps to work on clears/rides and really helped cut down on the chance of a blowout from one team dominating possession with a strong fogo.

Not really sure where I land on that....but for this season, I'll take this format, playing 10 minutes from home and done in 5 hours, over headed to NJ to have a face-off and monopolizing the entire day.

What 3 clubs have announced tryouts? I haven't seen any. Also, the best middie on the 2023 A team was on the B the team for multiple years. Things change...

FLG and Turtles to name a few. Tryouts are likely happening in my opinion. And they are mostly to fill out the 2nd and 3rd teams. The best talent usually gets added outside or before tryouts.

Very true been hearing that for some time now , getting rid of the Draw. The position has been tweaked few times the past 5 yrs . Now they want to stop knee down. Face off clinics is a big business for some .

Not a FOGO lover but why so much detest for the faceoff? Would the game be so much more exciting if Team A scores on Team B, Team B takes it out of the net and Team A rides for a turn over and scores again and again and again? Free clear like grade school? Should we make penalties fast breaks again?

I watched an AA level game this weekend. If it were not for faceoffs the score would have been 50-0 as one team could not break the other teams ride when/if they made a save or got the ball in their own zone. Other team snatched it right back and scored immediately or just sat way back and the other team could not make any passes up the field without it getting intercepted. The only thing that kept it competitive was the other team being able to win some face offs and kill the clock and play some offense. I am not arguing either way, but what happens in this scenario. What then. Free clears from midfield. It's tough to find the right thing.

Bro, Turtles are good. Drop/replace a defender we are golden.
