0 - Published 7 hours ago by in Major League Lacrosse

Major League Lacrosse has seemingly gone away from using the grippy, neon orange balls that they have used in the past. This caused quite a stir on Twitter, especially from the Chesapeake Bayhawk’s head coach Dave Cottle. At first the rumor was that grippy balls picked up too much dirt, making them hard to see on TV. When the discussion turned to the color of the balls being the issue, the best tweet came in the form of Trevor Tierney appealing to Connor Martin.

Shortly after the MLL collegiate draft wrapped up, Connor Wilson tossed an interesting suggestion my way, one you pretty much never hear from website editor: Wait. That’s right, instead of posting a wrap-up piece the following day, he wanted me to take some time, check out each team’s picks in both drafts, add in their various offseason moves and try to get a better idea of what these teams are working with at this point of the offseason.

By now you probably know that Devon Wills has become the first female player on a Major League Lacrosse roster. While she wasn’t picked up in the Supplemental Draft as some may have hoped, the NY Lizards claimed the two-time FIL Women’s World Cup gold medalist out of the Player Pool.

Tweet of the Week: Suit & Tie for MLL Players

The rise of the “lax bro” has been evident over the past few years, and has certainly led to a lot of discussion. Over the summer, Connor wrote about the difference between “swag” and “swagger,” and I continued the conversation. After prompting from a recent article, Connor centered this week’s Hot Pot on the issue again. The debate has also resurfaced on social media, leading goalie John Geagan, of the NY Lizards and Manhattan College, to tweet his mind.

Floridafication of Launch Continues: Powell & Fullerton

0 - Published December 4, 2013 by in Major League Lacrosse

The biggest news out of Florida so far has been the Casey Powell – Joe Walters swap that went down yesterday. Powell was a leader for the Bayhawks last year, and helped them win their second straight title. It’s a little surprising to see Powell leave such a monster team, but when you consider all the promotion work he did for the last MLL All-Star game (held in Florida), it starts to make a lot of sense…
