You’re loyal to the kids that have been on the team. Less than a month before 9/1 and you are bringing new kids in? Be an adult.
Be truthful there is not a big difference in play Team would of won without guest players. If the BL player had a different name no one would really care. Was not a prolific scorer, doesn’t play defense and takes every run tho. Personally feel the CH player is better. To add two offensive players was unnecessary
Just noticed the player spoken about was given offensive player of game. Didn’t score a goal til it was 9-0. No points in first quarter and it was 6-0 after first. This Has become very funny. It will be interesting to see when IL rankings come out how much favoritism happens player should not be top 5 but will probably be. inside lacrosse Will be judged. There was a full time Hawk that Had big numbers in first quarter and a half enough is enough yet “other players “ are only rewarded because their dad
Did not see the game and it doesn’t sound like the player was deserving of Player of the Game. However, there is no question that he is a top 5 player in this class. You can’t blame the kid for playing. It is not as if he jumped the fence and ran on the field. A lot of Hawks kids are feeling betrayed and you’ll see turnover which at this stage in club ball is unfortunate. Brotherhood hashtags only go so far.
I agree he is a top 5 kid in class and will probably be 2 or 3 behind Spallina and rightfully so Your right it isn’t the kids fault and the betrayal to the loyal kids is what is upsetting
Clearly LIDS has done it wrong again doing it all for a club summer championship in a broken down bracket of teams The added players are good but it is very clear to everyone that the one BL player gets media attention from his dads past success which is wrong if the player had a different last name wouldn’t be on top 10 but he is a good player The issue here is the why? This team has been established people have entrusted the organization with time and money and to be basically tossed away creates anger and distrust
ONCE AGAIN, building teams through social media hype is just marketing. These coaches roll the ball out on the field and let 24 of the best players in the country go to work, then take credit for being great coaches.
This Conference has always been among the best talent and depth wise. To compete (make the semis) in the MIAA A Conference you need at least 12 top notch players. To win it, you need 15-20 high caliber players in addition to a top notch coaching staff. Occasionally mediocre or weaker coaching staffs have such an abundance of talent they still win the championship. Conversely, great staffs often win or outperform with less talent. You really need two great classes to win it all and you need four or five consecutive great recruiting classes to have a dynasty (CHC most recently, LB in the 80s and SP in the days of leather helmets and wooden sticks). I believe Spalding has a great 2022 class but the question for the next two years is as follows: are the 2021 or 2023 classes strong enough to get this 2022 class into the playoffs.
Probably the most valid point so far that actually analyzes and applies some common sense instead of detest to the argument. If half of the kids sitting on CHC's sideline for 4 years went to other schools, you might see some more parity, but for some, it is just about playing for "______" and actually playing doesn't matter. That logic doesn't make a lot of sense as it pertains to high school athletics, but to each his own. Maybe it is all about academics for the 40 or so kids that happens to.
