I'll never understand the fighting culture in Hockey & Lacrosse

In the Pros NHL it makes more sense as players are paid to fight with a Bonus for putting on a good "show"

In amateur sport it makes no sense, if you want to fight there are lots of outlets to do so

Play the Game

PLAYERS THAT REGULARLY FIGHT SHOULD BE BANNED FOR LIFE

if you can't control yourself, throw them out of the League

As for the Canadian culture where fighting in sport is just boys being boys... I can't reconcile it

If you expect me to stand by and watch while one of my mates gets beaten up by a goon on the opposition, "as part of the game"

Fighting is no longer lacrosse and the game has finished at that point, there are no rules in fighting

I'm surprised the above situation doesn't happen more often,

sticks, helmets, fighting & being able to throw a projectile at 90mph is not a good combo

It a game, a sport with rules

if you want to fight, go to any town centre after midnight and you will find lots of willing participants :?

Has it ever been mentioned that there are some lax sticks in Road Trip?

I remember spotting the other day that in one of the home movies (I think the one that should actually have been sent) there are a couple of lax sticks that can just about be spotted in the background.

I can't be bothered trawling the previous pages to see if its been mentioned before.

I was bored enough to look and Gandalf mentioned Road Trip on the 1st page, 4 and a half years ago - keep up Trig!

Probably already mentioned, but was watching Grown Ups 2 the other day and there's a load of lacrosse players in it.

Trailer:

Wouldn't recommend the film though, it's pretty poor. Nowhere near as good as the first movie.
