    the best defender in the league. Honestly I had him as the 1st star of the game. 16 LB, 2 CTO, completely dominates whoever he guards. 2 goals, 1 assist. Just a beast.

    Is he related to Matt Hossack?

    ....Not Good Anymore will be a thread some dumb Knighthawks "fan" will post in 3 or 4 years. :p

    Hossack fell to the Hawks because Styres made a huge trade (involving Johnny Poweless and Joel McCready and picks) to land the pick from Vancouver --[14] -- and Georgia took Lyle Thompson at #1.

    Again, this proves that in the NLL, it's Curt Styres' world and everyone else is just living in it.

    I gotta assume this is the first time two sets of brothers squared off in the same championship game then? Dawson & Hossack vs. Dawson & Hossack.

    Yes, this is the first time two sets of brothers have faced each other since at least 2005. Similar situations with multiple sets of brothers (but not on opposite teams):

    2007: Derek and Curt Malawsky (Calgary) faced Scott and Shawn Evans (Rochester)
    2013: Brad and Scott Self and Dan and Paul Dawson all played for the Knighthawks but there were no brothers on the Stealth
    2014: Greg and Jon Harnett (Calgary) against the Selfs and Dawsons (Rochester)
    2015: Zack (Sask) and Bill Greer (Tor) faced each other and Brodie and Patrick Merrill both played on the Rock
    2017: Lyle and Miles Thompson (Georgia) faced Jeremy (Sask). Jerome was on the Georgia roster but didn't play.

    BTW on behalf of today's @NLLFactOfTheDay, thanks!

    Interesting stuff. I didn't realize brothers squaring off in the finals, or at least competing together in the finals, had been that prevalent over the past decade or so.
