According to Andrew Beaton of the Duke Chronicle Duke football wide receiver, Johnell Barnes, suffered injuries from a fight with Sophomore middie, John Shaffer. Shaffer, who has Barnes beat in size by 2″ and 10 lbs, apparently had an altercation with the Freshman football player at 1am in popular Durham bar, Shooters. Barnes has been seen wearing a cast around campus. Both coaches have declined to comment.

Shaffer is a Delbarton product who registered two goals in his Freshman campaign. Barnes is the main kickoff returner for the Blue Devils. Bar fights happen more often than you think. Hopefully both parties have squashed it.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.

I swear Lacrosse Playground is out to make a bad name for NCAA Lacrosse. They post stories about ANYTHING negative they can find in college lacrosse. Find something for us that’s worth reading.

This has nothing to do with the game. Why publish, let alone hype, another example of off-field violence by a lacrosse player?

With recent negative PR of lacrosse players have received (Cornell, Marquette, Auburn)….does publishing a “story” about a fight a lacrosse player was in sounds like a good idea???

I agree with MR3, why is this a story. The title alone makes it seem as if it’s supposed to be cool they fought. No one cares. Immature journalism.
