Why are Lacrosse Players such assholes?

Like, all of them.

by Anonymousreply 8710/11/2014

Because they usually come from privilege (lacrosse tends to be a big sport in upper-class school districts) and if they're good at the sport, everyone, and I mean damn near *everyone* kisses their ass.

I spent most of my adolescence wishing that they still played lacrosse by the old Native American rules, where the captain of the losing team was executed and his skull was used as the ball for the next match.

And as a girl, believe me, girl LAX players are no better. Evil bitches, the lot of them.

Overcompensating for playing a girl's sport.

Boys playing a sport that starts with a "La" naturally need to compensate.

I went to Andover -- so preppy it hurts but with an overlay of egalitarianism that made it bearable.

However -- the lax jox were the worst. They acted like they owned the hallways of the dorm. They walked around with their sticks in hand constantly, cradling the ball, passing it back and forth between each other. You had to call time-out before sticking your head out of your room for fear of getting beaned with the lax ball. They had names like Boomer and Toph and Brooks. So very inherently loathsome.

Crew jocks though? Yum. Nice too.

Especially when she not only looks like Katie Couric, but attended her college.

Seriously, a murder of one student by another at a prestigious university is a big story. When it happened at Harvard someone even wrote a book about it.

Why would the Landon School's athletic department be getting angry calls?

by Anonymousreply 2805/06/2010

Because George Huguely is an alumnus, r28.

by Anonymousreply 2905/06/2010

So because George Huguely is a Landon School alumnus: some parent of a current student, who never heard of this kid who graduated several years ago, calls up the Landon School's athletic department all piping mad, and says...

tell me, please.

The article obviously thinks lax players are assholes; the comments are just as informative and I think add humanizing dimension.

But, I didn't know squat about this world but it seems like that these guys act like they are all the jock shit at schools that basically don't have football programs WHILE not bringing in any money to the school.

It's like prep school white entitlement nastiness for nothing-in-return; for assholes that especially when they compete at public schools like UVA we all have to pay for.

I went to a small college in Maryland 35 years ago (no football program) and the lax players were huge assholes back then also (except for Tony C.). Arrogant, entitled fucktards.

Just heard on TV the suspected killer previously threatened to kill a police officer who was arresting him, had been in trouble in South Florida "near the family's multimillion dollar home" and jumped off a yacht while drunk following an altercation.

I used to watch lacrosse when they had uniforms with short shirts that let their waists show. The combination of padding and exposed skin is very sexy. After the NCAA clamped down on bare midriffs in football (ostensibly as part of the deal in which the NCAA sold advertising on the uniforms), lax followed suit. I once asked a gay lax coach about it and he said covering up made the athletes look more "professional." Shame.

R21, the average Today Show viewer (after 7:30 a.m.) are housewives who are convinced that their daughters are in deadly danger from their husbands and boyfriends. Incidents like this one only confirm their fears.

Why is HGH banned? It's a hormone that allows players to come back quicker from injury - which tends to be the problem. It does not grow huge muscles but lets players recover faster. I'm all in favor of it and there has yet to be medical evidence against it's use in this manor. I personally feel that the players who use HGH are the SMART ones. Sensible people. The people who ban this are at best out of touch, at worst, completely stupid, kneejerk assholes.

My theory was that lacrosse players are pissed off because they're too stupid to play football.

At the time, they were all from Long Island and Maryland.

My dad grew used to watch Jim Brown play lacrosse with the Indians. Brown was supposedly better at that sport than football. %0D %0D He said it was a very violent sport back then. Boys lacrosse is still fairly violent. The girls actually demonstrate more skill as their baskets are more shallow.

Funny that I haven't seen the term "lax bro" used yet in this thread. That is the term that my friends use and captures the whole vibe: lax bro. They are lax bros. The lax bro culture is supreme in some places, and it is shitty. It goes hand in hand with Greek culture, and the general "boys will be boys" attitude. I would say I don't know why, but they all wind up on Wall Street pulling 500k/yr, so maybe I'm the asshole.

Lacrosse is THE sport for former fatties (football is for current fatties).

That's why their all assholes.

I think lacrosse is faux-classy for most people now. I mean, it's not polo or cricket.

R4, just FYI. Crystal Mangum, the accuser of the Duke Lacrosse players, did a similar trick to the East Carolina football players a couple of years ago.

She was arrested several months ago for assaulting her boyfriend and setting his belongs on fire. Right now, she is in jail for murder. She stabbed another boyfriend who later died.

You are either ignorant or a troll.

No, R46, Mount Saint Mary's.

And, R48, it was hardly a school of wealth and privilege, but, nevertheless, the lax players were -- for the most part -- arrogant assholes. Not all of them, but most of them. They were the ruling jocks on campus and they knew it and loved it.

My boss is a lacrosse player and coach, plus his sons play lacrosse. He's not an asshole at all, but he's certainly a Type A kind of guy. I have noticed that lacrosse players tend to walk around with an air of entitlement.

It's a sport priveleged white guys can play reasonably well and still dominate. Primarily because not many black guys play it yet. When the brothers move in, the attitude of these preppy white assholes is going to get knocked down a few notches. The game involves running fast, throwing, catching and hitting. Black guys are great at that stuff.

not all of them are. some are dicks but there are lots of nice guys out there.

it used to be so sexy when the short shirts left bare midriffs. But of course like all American sports they decided showing any skin is "gay."

Well, that is interesting. Not only do they all wind up pulling $500K/year on Wall Street but they are doing it as crooks stealing everyone else's money (as the 2008 financial collapse made painfully apparent). They do what they want in college and they do what they want out of college. After 2008 they should have all gone to JAIL for their actions on Wall Street.

I had a really good friend who went to Hobart and although he was a nice guy, the stories he would tell. Jesus. I guess he wasn't the nicest guy when he got with his crew. The things they did to women. They called them lacrosstitutes, total entitled pigs.

It's the new Lacrosse major league. Back when they knew it was just a game, not a sport, they weren't so bad - except when shit-faced drunk cruising Hoboken for pussy. But now they think they are athletes just like the people in the dozens of real sports they weren't good enough to play, so they have adopted a more Jock than you attitude.

They were always assholes, which is why in Native American days that sometimes losers were killed. Sadly, the lack of this violent outcome has meant they have reproduced and proliferated.

I think I can answer this question. I have been a lacrosse player for many years and since The beginning I have heard that people think lacrosse is gay or people hate the players (like you guys). Yes we can be indeed be huge assholes and we are probably dicks to everyone. However as a lacrosse player I have been led to the inclination that everyone already thinks of me as a sick hat because I play lacrosse which means my natural tendency is to be a dick to you before you can make fun of me. I try to defend myself so you don't try and harass me and so you know that I WILL fight back. I am sorry if I ever upset you but me and many of my friends that at lacrosse have a tolerant form of anger managements. Because of my condition I often find myself snapping at people but like I said before and stress enough, I am sorry.

Why do they have to play in the dorm hallway? (I had the same problem as a poster from long ago.)

They would play for hours in the hall when there were nice fields of green just outside our doors.
