Thanks for posting, my son is devastated and confused at how adults would just decide to "fix what's not broke". This is a great position, yes there are inherent flaws, but all the F/O athletes know how to deal with it. Overall everything averages out, and it is a great, exciting part of the game that should be left alone. BTW, my 17 year old son is in the basement practicing as I write this, not out getting into trouble! Think about it, if there were real problems with the execution of the F/O, the F/O athletes would not all be so upset right now.

Face offs are important. But don't deserve all the money some get for div 1

Maybe they ought to go back to facing off the way they did it in the 60's.
Same way the girls do it now.
NOT

The rule change will stand. What's wrong with the change anyway? That being said, you are welcome to waste your time and energy stressing over it.

They should have a face off to start the game then do away with it completely, men and women. They should give possession to the other team after every goal and have a shot clock.

This rule change is a good thing for the sport! The only thing better would be to eliminate the face offs except to start the game. Quick re-starts would help take the game tot he next level.

rules committee got it right, ball wedged in back of stick is not lacrosse. I hate an inferior team beating a superior team because of one skill of one none lacrosse player it is silly and anyway to eliminate that is a step in the right direction.

Even the name of the position is embarrassing...FOGO ='s Face off get off, meaning after you do your non-lacrosse skill get off the field and let a real player come on and play the real part of the game.

i like the rule change. The faceoff has become to specialized. What would be wrong if it became a ground ball battle?

A player running around with a misshapen stick head with ball in back of stick passing and shooting is a joke. Ball should not be allowed to be carried in back of stick.
