For a second there, it looked like things were headed back to business as usual and this whole “parity” thing was on its way out.

Is it time to accept this as our new reality? It just might be.

When it was announced that the LXM PRO and the MLL would partner up, and that players from both camps could now play in both leagues, there was a lot of talk of who could “make the jump” to Major League Lacrosse.

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 are camped out in the 0-2 basement, and the rest of the league is sitting at 1-1.
After watching night one of the MLL summer season, I couldn’t help but make some observations.
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? No idea whatsoever, but it’s time to find out, so let’s start things off with a team-by-team season preview.
The Whistle put together an amazing inside look at Devon Wills, the MLL’s first and only female lacrosse player.
As rosters were announced last week, a moment many men and women were waiting for was to see if Devon Wills’ name would show up anywhere on the New York Lizards’ website.
On Monday Wills became the first female named to a Major League Lacrosse roster in any capacity, making the New York Lizards’ six-person practice squad to start the 2014 MLL season.

Markbuster Videos! Markbuster Videos, long live Matt Russell… The great Matt Russell, goalie for Team STX and formerly at Navy, has decided to call it quits. I watched the broadcast of Matt’s final game on The Lacrosse Network, but honestly, I don’t remember ever hearing about Matt hanging it up. I had the chance to […]
Last weekend I was invited out to the Ohio Machine training camp at St. Charles High School in Columbus, OH. Here are my key takeaways from the experience!
After eight long, cold months (in most MLL climates), 2014 Faceoff Weekend is just three weeks away. If you can’t wait until then you’re in luck, because teams will open their training camps this weekend in anticipation for the 14th MLL season. The New York Lizards will be the first to open when they do so tomorrow on Long Island.
Welcome to Throwback Thursday! The year is 2001, and Major League Lacrosse has just completed their first season of real play. Long Island took down Rochester in the first semifinal, and now the Boston Cannons are taking on the Baltimore (now Chesapeake) Bayhawks!
The Ohio Machine have gotten an LXM infusion. Kyle Harrison was picked first by the Machine in the special Major League Lacrosse waiver wire process opened to include LXM Pro Tour players after the deal announced Feb. 13 between MLL and Adrenaline that allowed LXM players to play MLL and vice versa.
