Why are Lacrosse Players such assholes?
|by Anonymous||reply 93||05/07/2016|
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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Bitch, most of us aren't. For some of us who have played the game all our lives we respect the game. We won't disgrace others who aren't as good, we help them become the best of their capability! I've played since I was 3! I played at national level by the time I was 12! I treat everyone with the same respect they I've me. Native Americans across the world will agree with me.

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.

R82 is the perfect proof of my theory of why they are, in the main, aggressive hyper-masculine men. They tend to 'snap' then fall into a shame spiral.
It's head trauma. Young boys whose brains have not yet finished forming, with sticks and minimal padding is not a good idea and any parent who allows their child to play should have their head examined.
The violence towards women, the rage, the self-medication with drugs is textbook head trauma stuff. The story sounds just like many in the NFL.
I knew several in college. All hot guys but they used it to their advantage and treated people, mainly women, badly because they could get away with it.
