Major League Lacrosse has announced that every team in the league has submitted its 23-Man Protected Roster for 2014. The MLL also sent out the rosters for the 8 teams. Teams are granted a 40-man roster leading into the season, and they can fill those remaining 17 spots with supplemental draft picks, college draft picks, and trades, before the start of the 2014 campaign.

It’s not scientific, and just for fun. No reason is really needed other than that! We respect both of these legends immensely, and we’re just interested to hear which assist you like more… Millon’s dodge and dump from X? Or Powell’s quick stick feed to a cutter? We thought they were both great, but which was BETTER?
It’s Traditional Thursday! This week we have Championship goals from Major League Lacrosse’s first three seasons, and each and every one is scored with a traditional stick! It’s a bygone day, where the best of the best all used leather and cross lace to get the job done. Lizards and Bayhawks just going AT IT!
With Championship Weekend right around the corner, Major League Lacrosse has been recognizing some of the hardest working members of their organization, and rightfully so!
I took in the New York Lizards – Denver Outlaws game on Sunday evening, and a couple of things really stood out to me. I’ll go through some of the bigger story lines for the game, and provide a couple of Game Photos to support each avenue of discussion.
The Rochester Rattlers sweep the New York Lizards during the 2013 regular season, and retain Major League Lacrosse New York State bragging rights for the second year in a row.
In today’s MLL, the culture of consistency has become more vital to an organization’s success than ever before. It’s no longer about assembling the best group of all-star caliber players and throwing them out on the field, it’s about finding personnel that fit a system and are both willing, and able, to stay local, and together, as much as possible.
We’ve always been somewhat jealous of the big goofy mascots running out the field at baseball games, so as soon as we saw this fly into our mailbox, we knew it was worth a caption!
Joe Vitale was a two-time first team All-American in his last two years at Adelphi, and played in two games for the Charlotte Hounds last year. Right now, Vitale is on the New York Lizards’ practice squad, and he can straight up BRING THE HEAT when shooting. He hit 111 at camp this week.
Connor Wilson quickly caught up with Rob Pannell, and had to ask him what it was like to see so many kids rocking his #3 Lizards jersey or T-shirt… Rob’s answer is pretty cool!

Tommy Palasek is currently leading the New York Lizards, of Major League Lacrosse, in scoring with 13 goals, and 4 assists, for 17 points. The most amazing thing about all of this is that through the first seven games of the season, Palasek hasn’t even been using his own stick!

If you haven’t bought a ticket yet, get on it now. This is the second, and last pro field lacrosse game in NYC this season, and if we don’t show, the MLL might not come back for years. If that happens, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
The Chesapeake Bayhawks came in to New York City to take on the New York Lizards, and they absolutely dominated the rain-soaked game, which was the first ever pro field lacrosse contest played at the iconic and historic Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island.
As the season wears on, we’ll see whether New York’s new look team can turn into a dominant force in the MLL. One thing we don’t have to wonder is if can Pannell hack it in the MLL… He’s already given us an emphatic “YES” on that one.
