Indoor LaCross Riot posted by Richard Kagan
I gotta tell you, I saw a video of a LaCross game brawl that got out of control. The fight worsened when one team left their bench and raced onto the playing surface. This was indoor LaCross. I don't know what level of teams were competing. It looked like high school or semi-pro. But what really got me was this act of crazy behavior was scored to hard rock music! Oh, let's look at athletes gone wild and rock out of some badass guitar. I'll tell you what has gotten out of control, is the packaging of this violent, unsportsmanlike brawl gone bad. It ssems like hey, you know the video "Girls gone Wild", well, let's see some guys gone wild. Glorifying fights of this nature doesn't diminish it, it gives it a license to continue unabated. I saw the officials who were totally overwhelmed. How are you going to stop 20 guys from hitting each other? Get on the PA system. I turned off the video because I had enough. I didn't want to hear this wierd scene and listen to music. Give it a rest. Next thing you know they'll be selling tickets to see the brawl go out of control. Nobody wins when that happens.Continue reading "Indoor LaCross Riot"
