Lacrosse Playground

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.

    Who cares what stick he uses? Kid is dirrttyyy. Give him a tennis racquet and he’ll grip it and rip it.

    how about a goalie for the next one

    Yeah…… You’re going to have to explain why you think this Ed guy is a tool. He didn’t say anything about Tim Kaiser specifically. He was questioning the worth and validity to this certain entry b/c it really does not have much of value other than that Tim Kaiser uses an Evo. Just as Ed said. That’s all. I think you need to pay attention to detail more.

    A couple of things. Fisrt off Ed is a tool. Lets just say that right off the bat. Tim Kaiser was and always will be an All American laxer. Pretty sure Ed has not nor will ever reach that status. Second, the only thing I can really critique regarding Kaiser’s stats are his lack of Karoke skills and his form in body surfing waves. Thanks that is all.

    Impromptu interviews don’t always equal to the best quality videos (most of the time it takes a few times to get it perfect), but at least we get to know what the “pro’s” are using and what LXM provided their players with. While this isn’t in par with many of the past interviews, I like being able to see what type of equipment many of the older guys are using, especially defensemen. I’m glad to see Kaiser back in the mix, even if it is just LXM. He was a player I often watched.

    Max Hubbard one sets the standard I would say.

  7. Tim Kaiser on April 14, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    Easy on the hate. Maybe if you were older you would know that kaiser was and still probably is dirrrrrty. He would yard sale every single one of you then rip top right.

    Ed, I hear you. The next one will be definitely more indepth and inline with the usual Grip ‘N Rips. Have anyone in mind? What do you think of this one,

  9. Ed on April 14, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    This one just said he uses an Evo pro and a shaft. The ones you put up before a while back were actually in depth. They have been getting shorter and more pointless. I would have to say it started with the Matt Danowski one where all he does is show off his head and pocket using his thick accent. I was hoping to find out how and why he uses his pocket he does b/c it’s basically just one shooter across that is basically in the center of his stick and not at the top. I don’t know if you have ever noticed but this is one of the weirdest and uniquest setups I have ever seen. Anyway, That Danowski one was just him flashing it up to the camera, much like this one, but basically there is nothing of value to some of these grip n rips. You guys must have some sort of purpose for this column but this particular grip n rip was absolutely worthless. Basic stuff like pocket setup and preference like shooters and such. Even a tape job would have at least shown some journalistic investigative efforts. At least the Steven Brooks one showed his personal touch to his stick, the tribute to his mother, and he talked about his pocket and EXPLAINED something.

    please get more people that take it seriously like brian mcgill that was a great one

  11. MArk on April 14, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    Who is Tim Kaiser? Can you get some more well-known laxers up and involved? This guy looks like a joke

  12. WP Maintainer on April 14, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    Ed, what would you like to see more of?

  13. Jim on April 14, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    Don’t Hate.

  14. Ed on April 14, 2010 at 11:12 am

    These grip n rips are just getting weaker and weaker. Cmon guys. You need to try harder or not put it up at all.
