Helmets In Women’s Lacrosse?

This is awesome!

If you don’t follow Women’s Lacrosse, you might not be aware of the brewing controversy that faces the sport.  The question is whether or not helmets should be introduced to the game and at first, it seems like an easy question to answer, but once the details start to emerge, you may change your tune.  And I think this can go both ways.  I’ve heard compelling pleas from both sides at this point and I actually think my position as someone a little removed from the game will help me shed a new light on this dilemma.

If you want a little background on the issue, check out this NY Times article.

I’m going to be talking to a lot of people in the coming days and I’ve lined up some assumptions that need to be addressed.  Hopefully, these current and former players, coaches, and even some lacrosse outsiders with a unique perspective will provide information that everyone will find helpful.  But I can’t do it alone.  I need the help of our readers.  So in the comment section, please leave a question or two that YOU would like answered about helmets in Women’s Lacrosse.  Raise an interesting point, make an argument one way or the other or give me your best Pro or Con argument.  Should Women’s Lacrosse players wear helmets?  Help me figure this one out!
