Main NBC channel, 4 o'clock on a summer Saturday afternoon, certainly sounds like it has the potential to be the most-watched lax game ever. Although this is the first weekend with big-league baseball... I'll be watching NBC, rooting for Ty Warner, his team, Yale no make that the Whippersnappers, no, I mean Whipsnakes.

What's the PLL Covid Protocol?

Because over in the MLL it just ended 2 teams "seasons". There will still be a "championship" with the remaining 2 teams.

I don't hate watching MLL and PLL lacrosse. I actually enjoy it. I'm still processing this new me.

While I've been watching the pro games this past week, my main take-away is that I think a 60 second shot clock is too short and doesn't allow the offenses to get set often enough. I'd like to see the pros adapt the 90 second clock, which I thought worked well in this shortened college season.

Agree with the shot clock. 2nd take away is that they are letting all kinds of wards, slashes and UR go, even though they have an extra official on the field.

In the interest of, well, staying interested, I picked a team to root for.

I went with the Atlas based solely on them having two DIII players from teams I saw many moons ago in the CAC. (Robinson & Hartzell)

Happy and thankful to be watching lacrosse, but the Atlas have been tough to enjoy.

Has anyone picked a team to root for, and if so, based on what?

That's why I'm having a tough time getting into the PLL. They have no home. I'm originally from the Baltimore area so I pull for the Bayhawks in the MLL. Also, like you I'm a D3 fan and there are few in this league. I have become a D3 fan so much so that I am not really familiar with the younger PLL players (the stars). In addition, having watched a couple of the first games, I'm not seeing great lacrosse here because, as mentioned earlier, the shot clock is so short that in crunch time these guys are chucking the ball around, throwing it away, dropping it, etc... Put it at 70 or 80 seconds.

Oh, I understand that there is going to be trash talk but I am not a fan of how it is being promoted by the league as something that should be celebrated.

Yea, in many ways the league (PLL) needs to “find it’s own.” Will it allow mic’d up chirping to delve into public degradation? If so it undoubtedly will be “policed” by the players. And, like the chirps themselves, those enforcing that code will cross the line from time to time.

But all this is to be expected with a new league paired with today’s technology/social media platforms. I want it to succeed.

MLL, I take the Barrage. Matt Whitcher (York), can’t root against him.

I picked Atlas because of the Cornell players on the roster. I've been baffled by their struggles based on the talent on the roster.

My second team is Archers because of a friend of Cornell lacrosse, and a super solid player, Eli Gobrect (former D3 defender of the year) is on the roster.

Yes, a lot of wards, which I think is offset to some extent by the permitted slashing. I root for teams with goalies I like, other than whipsnakes. So I root for Atlas and Archers.

I see it sort of like Nascar, which I was a fan of for many years ago in the Marines, you find teams (drivers) you like for whatever reason and root for them, and root against teams or players you don't, e.g. Queener (who I can't stand having coached with him).

I really like watching lax on a natural-grass field... which outweighs the aesthetics of the 2-point arch. I've been watching the Whipsnakes, initially because of Ty Warner, but I also enjoy watching Bernlohr in goal, a tough D and a team that plays like a team.
