Yep. I've never really gotten into it, but I've always really enjoyed lacrosse when I've watched it. Would be great for hockey you'd think too because they're so similar in a lot of ways. I'll take both of them over soccer, that's for damn sure. Sorry Jeff...
I think we've had this talk too, but I already know that whenever I have kids they will not be playing football. Maybe I'd feel different if I played it (us basketball guys weren't allowed to play both by my coaches), but it's just not worth it IMO. And I don't really see how they can make the game safe barring changes to the point of making it flag football.
