Hot Pot Of Lax: Does Professional Lacrosse Need Fighting?

Spallina is a teacher during the year!

There is NO QUESTION as to which side of the aisle I sit on when it comes to fighting in lacrosse. If you don’t know my stance on the issue, read some of my older posts and you’ll get the idea.

Should we just let these guys throw down or what?

But I want to remove MY opinions and assumptions on the matter for a minute (that’s why I didn’t even link to any of my old posts!), and hear YOUR opinion on fighting in professional lacrosse!

I’m going to ask a very simple question, and then take a poll where you can make your voice heard. If you have something more in-depth to add to the conversation, please feel free to discuss this issue further in the comments!

And now on to the big question…

So let’s hear it! We’re not offering up any scenarios or hypotheticals. We’re not mucking up the issue with our own biased thoughts. We just want to know what YOU think about fighting in professional lacrosse!

Rip City!

Those Europeans are looking awfully good at lacrosse! Every year the best get better and the overall level of skill and dedication skyrockets. Love it!


  1. No sport NEEDS fighting, but it is going to happen no matter what. You’re playing a physical sport with a bunch of men who take it very seriously and are very emotionally involved with the game. Tempers are going to flare and occasionally punches might be thrown. It doesn’t happen every game, or even close to every game. The best thing anyone can do is to educate young kids playing the game in sportsmanship and showing that the positive aspects of lacrosse such as teamwork, brotherhood, and most of all, FUN should take precedence over anything else.
