I have feeling that this comment was made by somebody with a combination of youthful immaturity and arrogance.

First off, you can not make that kind of judgement off of a highlight clip.

With that being said, as an older guy who has been coaching for years and loves the game. There was absolutely some talent there which is fantastic.

Some great quick sticks, shooting and dodging.

Great stuff.

Just so you know, both of these teams smoked the USA Starz, a team that included both of the Bratton brothers. I know that the starz are not a 'good hs team' but nevertheless.

So if you know that the starz "are not a good hs team", then what is your point? That these guys can beat 2nd or 3rd rate teams? Is that your point of defense that these are among the best lacrosse players in the world? While some people might think that only North American kids are good at lacrosse, I do believe that there CAN be good lacrosse all around the world. But let's be honest; overall, the best field lacrosse teams and players are still here in the US (some Canadiens too). 9 out of 10 times, any of the Top 25 US HS teams would smoke either of these teams. Just watching the vid, it was almost like watching a half speed recording.

i am glad that lax is spreading, but this was not good lacrosse. i wonder what the score would be if they played the boston cannons. just compare this video to the one on the right, and this one looks like it is in slow motion.

played for a top 5 HS school team in NJ . . . played college ball against more than one team that garnered an NCAA national championship . . . went to AUS after college and played in Melbourne's state league before coming back to the states for grad school . . . actually played in a warm up competition against the Victorian state team prior to the national championship several years ago . . . I can say this . . . competition was good . . . comparable to college, NOT HS . . . realize too, that they play 100 minute games and style of play is a bit different. . . definitely physical . . . Make no mistake about it, there are a lot of guys from AUS that are straight ballers. Before you guys go running your mouth about a highlight vid, you should suit up and walk the walk . . .

Why is that surprising? The MLL is the top 100 or so players out of perhaps over a few hundred thousand players/athletes in field lax in north america while australia has about 10,000 at most. It's great that lax.com are showing clips from around the world, even if they're not up to MLL standard.
