The rumors just don’t stop. The coach is still the same coach since they were in 3rd grade. He does much more than scream and yell. He has mentored and driven these kids in many ways. #22 is hurt. No fall Hoco because the coach believes the kids should still play other sports as well and most of them are on the football field all fall. Any other rumors needing to be addressed? And yes the Hawks and #22 are playing WSYL.[/quote]

Thanks for the update Rage...nobody cares.

Based upon this data I am not sure I agree that playing for a raw west coast team garners more cred from guys like Lars then playing for Crabs, Express, Hawks, 91, etc. I have an open mind if you can show data to refute this data set. Point


I don't think he was saying that he would rather take a non-hotbed player than a hotbed player. What I believe he was saying was that given two equal players, he will lean towards taking the player that hasn't been coached up for the last 8 years. The diamond in the rough. Maybe that kid, with some quality coaching, makes the leap where the kid who has already been coached up may have already plateaued.

91 MD parents were not prepared for size and speed of SL. The game was over very quickly and the 91 parents started barking at their kids to play harder. It was ugly.

<[ChillLaxin] stain on the sport.

It hasn't been beaten on enough and it needs to change. Calendar year should be the standard, not how many years of extra private school your family can afford.

So what team is your son affiliated with that has no holdbacks; I would love to hear this answer.

91 parents continue to make fools of themselves. Talk about a stain on the sport. Look no further than 91

Not the other person who posted. There are pre K and K holdbacks and then there is reclassing 9 kids and making them take the same 7th grade year because there 2026 team was not good and they did not sell enough snake oil to get people to buy in. That is an embarrassment and makes the kids look like uneducated simpleton jocks who would be manipulated in to repeating a grade of school for the sake of lacrosse. I'm sure you and your buddy's are enjoying a cold one at Swallow's so proud of yourselves.

Conveniently putting together an "All Star" team and playing in 2 one day tournaments a week before the qualifier to meet the minimum requirement. Doesn't really sound like a team that plays together on a regular basis.

My nephew payed for a PA team in Nightfall. My bro-in-law said he has never seen a group of parents yelling at their kids in a negative way as much as 91 and he's been around youth lax the past 15 years.

Sounds about right. He should hit up an FCA game one day.

.

What Madlax is doing is fully within the rules. Do you think the LI Express team isn't made up of the best players from the several LI teams? Do you think that BBL doesn't hold a tryout for their WSYL team? There are other examples.

Let's be real. No team made up of 100% of its regular players ever wins this tournament.

The Hawks for instance are actively recruiting to fill several holdback slots with 2026 kids from other teams instead of calling up players from their 2027 squad.

Hawks are ducking the Oktoberfest tournament this weekend were all the other real top 10 national teams are there playing (colorodo teams dont count). What MD team has beaten those teams other than the Hawks? & the Hawks have lost to several of those teams playing.
