I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Fighting alone isn’t the biggest problem in box lacrosse. In my opinion, fighting is much more a symptom of a rough, and often under-referreed game, where players can take unseen liberties, and possibly inflict serious bodily harm through the pace of play. As it stands now, with small referee crews and, at times, loosely interpreted rules, it allows the players to sort things out themselves, and maintain some sense of order and safety.
