Warrior denied in Grand Rapids!

Ok, just because I've been flowing this story I'm going to add this little bit...

A judge in Grand Rapids (that's MI boys and girls) denied an immedeate hearing for the case of Warrior/Athletes Connection (NBalance chain) vs the NCCA.

Warriors position is that it needs to block the NCCA rule change by October in order to avoid retooling equipment.

Apparently the judge decided the 6 months it took for Warrior to file the suit didn't make their case seem future court dates have been set.

Warrior goes it alone!

heh...leave it to a Detroit boy.

Ahem, Blase-Blah...we already know the NCCAs rule changes regading heads.
We all know that Warrior filed a $30 mil lawsuit claiming loss due to inventory and product development.

But here's some side drama.
"In an e-mailed statement, Jason Goger, general manager of STX, said his company disagrees with Warrior's charges against the NCAA, noting the NCAA gave equipment manufacturers fair opportunities to comment on the proposed rule change and ample time to make the required adjustments. "
"Harrow Sports, a smaller equipment manufacture, had a more neutral take on the lawsuit. Jeremy Gurley, vice president of operations at Harrow, said he doesn't see the rule change as that big of an issue. Warrior Sports invited Harrow to back them in the lawsuit, but Harrow respectfully declined, Gurley said, adding he expects Warrior extended the offer to other manufacturers. "
even more...
"Shamrock Lacrosse declined comment for this story, while Reebok, Gait by de Beer and Maverik did not return phone calls and e-mails."

Me, personally? I think the pinched heads are crap and the rule should be changed. I play with a stx proton and a warrior diablo.
(please bring the Diablo back Warrior. I just like saying it...Diablo...)

Anyway, the article is a quick read, go check it out at



North Carolina to make Lacrosse Offical HS Sport!

well, maybe for the 09-10 season...

It took way too long in my opinion.
With powerhouses NC and Duke 45 min outside of the capital it's a natural.

I'm not going to get into a rant about how other "sports" are adopted readily and Lacrosse gets treated like a step-child, so I'll tell you what this means.

Finally HS mens and womens club teams will be able to participate in a sanctioned Sate Championship.

Why are they jumping on the lax band wagon now?

“We met with the lacrosse folks that know the most about it, and they said it's getting ready to explode,” said North Carolina High School Athletics Association executive director Charlie Adams. Hmmm, money or best interest of the kids? You decide.

On a side note only 18 states recognize Lacrosse as an "official" HS sport.
And an even further aside - Bowling was the fastest growing HS sport.
Get it together people.

So go get your gear at the LaxZone Charlotte and as always for your Lax T-Shirts and Gifts come to
