The NCAA Lacrosse Facebook and Twitter pages have a question to ask you:

What’s your go-to Face-Off move? Are you making changes this summer?

They think it’s clever to post a picture like this. I’m not laughing.

Are you friggin’ kidding me?! First, you have the worst attended championship game in recent memory this past Spring, and now you are mocking lacrosse players and fans. In case you live under a rock, the NCAA Lacrosse Committee just released proposed rule changes for the 2013 season, which includes more than a handful of idiotic suggestions. Read all about the 2013 lacrosse rule changes.

    These changes are so dumb especially the one about face off guys starting 12 inches apart.  They’re just going to ram each other like a bunch of… RAMS!  The human neck and head are not meant for that kind of collision.  Why does the NCAA feel the need to adjust rules every year?

    Love the new suggested changes

    typical move by the old boys club running the sport.  its not as much that they feel they need to change the rules, as much as it is they need to feel relevant regarding a sport that passed them by years ago.

    Mocking may be a strong term. I don’t appreciate that tweet, especially in the context of the vocal uproar from the lacrosse community at large.

    Mikey Powell said it best for me, in a Podcast with IL about 9 months ago. It should be available still, google it for the exact words, but it went something along these lines…. (remember this is my paraphrase from what I recall him saying)

    MP felt it was the coaching and motivation to play lacrosse that has changed. He mentioned how they played the same rules back then with the same stick regulations up until 2010 (and quite similar since then), and nothing ever stopped SU, Hopkins, and the lot from putting up 15-20 goals consistently. He mentioned he sees players that are afraid to make mistakes, and that kids just want to play laccrosse and be good at lax to “get into a good school.” Mikey mentioned that he played lacrosse because every time he had a stick in his hand, he felt free (this last part put tears in my eyes).

    His words made the most sense to me of anything I’ve heard about any of this talk about the game’s too slow, the game needs this, the game needs that blah blah blah. It’s worth a listen for anyone who has about 45 minutes to hear out the podcast and wait for that part of the interview.
