This week on an all new X-Treme Threads Lacrosse Classified, Jake and Evan discuss fans actions on social media and scapegoats for playoff losses and a recap of the two NLL division finals. Dhane Smith and Jesse King join us on the show.
Dhane Smith, Jesse King: Lacrosse Classified
Our first guest is the Great Dhane himself, Dhane Smith of the Buffalo Bandits, Six Nations Chiefs and the Chaos Lacrosse Club of the PLL. Smith, a prolific scorer in the NLL and the record holder for most points in a season, talks about the success of the Bandits this year, his close relationship with teammate Josh Byrne, and the upcoming PLL season.
Our second guest is Ohio State alumni, and forward for the Calgary Roughnecks and Victoria Shamrocks, Jesse King. King, who was traded from the Georgia Swarm to the Roughnecks this offseason, then missed a good portion of this season with a knee injury, has yet to lose a game since returning to the Roughnecks lineup. He discusses what it was like going through the issues with his knee, his outlook on the upcoming NLL final, what it’s going to be like playing with his brother in Victoria this summer and the life lessons he learned at Ohio State.
Then we wrap things up with another round of Stampede Tack #WhoYaGot, with Evan down two in the playoff standings and discuss rule changes in the WLA this summer.
