Your favorite college team’s loss (or bunch of losses, poor strength of schedule, whatever) is your favorite MLL team’s gain, and it all starts this weekend.
After only two weeks of play, Denver stands alone atop the leaderboard. The Outlaws are the only undefeated team in the league, as opposed to last season, where three teams saw the 3-0 mark, and the Nationals and Outlaws made it to 5-0 before having to square off against one another. Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hounds […]
The first week of the MLL season provides a perfect opportunity to take any old observation and run way too far with it. Chris Rosenthall is back covering Major League Lacrosse like NONE OTHER!
Chances are you haven’t heard the actual song, so here’s a quick summary: you’ve got some auto-tune, a bunch of profanity, DJ Khaled yelling his own name for no reason, and a mediocre, mass-produced beat… you know, pretty standard stuff for the pop rap music of today. Then of course, you have Jay Z’s verse, […]
Ladies and gentlemen, once again, it’s on. It’s time for the 2014 Major League Lacrosse season to begin. Which team will end up in Atlanta four months from now, hoisting the Steinfeld Cup and doing the Nae Nae or whatever it is they’re doing in Atlanta four months from now?

Shortly after the MLL collegiate draft wrapped up, Connor Wilson tossed an interesting suggestion my way, one you pretty much never hear from website editor: Wait. That’s right, instead of posting a wrap-up piece the following day, he wanted me to take some time, check out each team’s picks in both drafts, add in their […]
Syracuse (16-4 in 2013) is coming off of a season that was a whole lot of “Friday Night Lights” (the television show), unfortunately mixed with a little bit of “Friday Night Lights” (the movie): five one-goal wins (including games against Virginia, Princeton and Cornell) in the regular season, late-game NCAA tourney heroics against Yale and […]
If you could change anything about Major League Lacrosse, what would it be? Chris Rosenthall talks about six things he’d like to see change in the MLL.
It’s the MLL Supplemental Draft and there are over 500 players to choose from. Who does your team need to pick?
Chris Rosenthall went down to Alexandria, VA after my weekend box game to check out the Team USA fall scrimmages at the Play for Parkinson’s event, and got to catch up with Kevin Cassese, a Team USA assistant, and Kyle Hartzell, a Team USA hopeful! Check out what the insiders had to say about the […]
According to Bayhawks head coach Dave Cottle, 94 feet is the distance a halogen lamp projects its light; a number so arbitrary you’d have to assume it to be correct. “If you’re driving from Florida to Maryland,” said Cottle during a mid-season conference call, “you’re not looking at Florida or Maryland, you’re looking 94 feet […]
So, Philadelphia: Are you guys just not really interested in watching lacrosse? Goodness, an announced attendance of just 3,792 for the MLL championship. Like Connor said, we’ll get into that later; this is about being there, and what you may have missed from your couch.
Four disappointed teams will be stuck at home on Championship Weekend. What went wrong, and can they turn things around next season?
