    Anyone else follow lacrosse?? Kinda kept up with the NLL the past two seasons casually but with their new streaming service now up, I took the plunge. Preseason just kicked off last night.

    Haven't followed it, but like to watch the highlights, it's really intense.

    Their streaming service is pretty cheap, 34 for the entire season. Really think the sport would catch on more with better promotion

    I watch lacrosse but am more of a field lacrosse fan than box (follow both, but follow field more closely).

    I prefer it to the NHL to be honest, for entertainment value it's top notch. Price is right too.

    NLL has a big time winner, but they need a real marketing team in place.

    That's what they are for sure lacking. Can't say I enjoy it more then the NHL but I really think a good chunk of hockey fans would follow if they knew of its existence haha

    When it comes to field its kinda funny. I don't keep up with major league lacrosse all that much but I'll peep college highlights pretty often.

    Thanks for the heads up! I've been wanting to follow the NLL for a while now. I'm in England so we don't have box lacrosse here. I did watch the Canadian Lacrosse league, as they stream on YouTube but it clearly isn't up to the same standards.

    I was in Toronto recently and no where sold an Rock merch :( However I'd probably say I'm a Black Wolves 'fan' as I've followed Boston sports teams for years. I just paid for the sup, nice price and games start in 2 days! sweet!

    Having the Stealth so close to home is really nice. I enjoy watching high level lacrosse. Hate the music during the play though and the announcers at the LEC are terrible. Still overall a fun time.

    went to the game Saturday night as Georgia eliminated the Rock.
    the constant music took some getting used to but the game was enjoyable.
    believe they had 7k in the arena which is 3.5 times their "normal" attendance from what i understand.

    they play Saskatchewan in the Finals

    I've been following it for years. Ever since the Calgary Roughnecks joined the league in 2001. Games are really fun to go to. It's like a party atmosphere at the games.

    Used to play it (Lacrosse). Went to Roughnecks games with my dad. He had season tickets the last 2 years. But he's been a fan of the NLL since 2005. Glad to see a thread!

    The Roughnecks are sucking it this year. Going to be a long season.

    I went to a Georgia Swarm game last season, it was cool. It's like if you took hockey,basketball and soccer and threw them in a blender in terms of how the game is.

    I’m a junior a coach and former minto cup winner

    I have no idea how lacrosse isn’t bigger than hockey

    I played both at high levels

    Lacrosse is like hockey without the sissies
