Just NXT doing all the right things and BL not so much. It's the difference between a professionally run organization vs a fly by not operation.
why is this shocking to anybody?
Either this is a troll or the NXT marketing group is spending their time posting on this board. While NXT is run be full time employees, with few exceptions their teams have been weak. This is especially true for the 2023 group.
Full time employees, fancy offices, lots of logo-ed apparel and professional marketing groups don't make good lacrosse teams - talented players and excellent coaching does.
BL has a group of very athletic kids who have played together for a long time. When on, they are very good. While there is no full time organization behind them, they have consistent coaches and practices. They are also half the price of NXT.
