    How good is this guy? Easily a top 5 defender in the league.

    Too bad he'll be playing in front of small crowds in a city that refuses to support one of the best teams in the league.

    Could be worse, at least he does not play for an owner who does not know his team exists

    Well, I am one up on you because I have seen them tag holding for benign plays where the attacker didn't even lose a step on his way to a scoring chance............

    I kinda prefer it this way - both hands on the stick should never be called a hold.

    I could almost guarantee you 75% of the Bandits roster would rather be playing in Rochester.

    Also Hossack is a GOD. Best defender in the league right now. Has pretty much single-handedly shut down Curtis Dickson and Dhane Smith these first two games.

    Oh, they know the Bandits exist. They get the gate receipt report after every game that shows the big profit they're making.

    I bet one of those new expansion cities would take the Hawks in a second since Rochester doesn't want to support such a good team.

    You would be wrong by 74%.

    Who wouldn’t wanna play for an organization with a winning mindset and the best owner in Lacrosse? I can’t name a single player who’s moved to Buffalo and saw their game improve. Benesch, Saunders, Cosmo. They all saw their stats decrease as soon as they got to Buff. Not to mentioned their locker room is a mess at the moment. Half the team wants Cordingley gone. There’s a reason Benesch got booted this offseason. I think it’s reasonable to say that’s Rochester is the preferred destination at this point. And I’ve heard the same thing from many people.

    I'd love to buy this guy a couple beers and listen to an insider's take about the last days in Toronto and then the last days in Buffalo.

    Might be one of those guys who is "exceedingly honest" about his feelings about how a team runs.

    As a player I’d prob want to play in Toronto or buffalo over Rochester , I don’t like how styres micromanages his players after that whole fridays incident, he even came to stock postgame last year to make sure no players were out, the BCA is easily the worst venue in the east. Venues ranked

    5 . Rochester
    4. Georgia
    3. New England
    2. Buffalo
    1. Toronto

    Obviously the Wells Fargo center is the best venue in the east come next year

    Is Georgia really worse than NE?

    I mean, it's a minor league rink in the suburban wastelands, and it is not hooked up to a casino resort........ but, it looks like it is actually set up for a full size hockey rink, and that the viewing experience would be far more satisfactory.

    Mohegan is fine as long as you don’t sit in the one upper dead zone
    Spacious concourse , great beer selection, top notch in arena audio (great concert venue)

    Its a clear penalty missed somehow by the refs

    Rule 72: HOOKING
    Hooking is the act of using the stick in a manner that enables a player to restrain an opponent.

    Lifting a player off the ground and throwing him backwards sure seems like restraint.

    Well I know the three players how got released or traded BD Smith, Brock, and Benesch all set up a team vote to oust Troy and Chugger. They were very likely right in their goals but a player can not win a battle against a GM in a league in which most fans are causal and do not care about the names on the backs of the jerseys. The GM just removes them and the next season most fans just presume the players retired or are injured because there is no real media coverage of the sport.

    Sorta disagree.

    When you think about it, a lefty cannot really hook a guy that's on his left.....it was really just a powerful shove with a straight stick.....if it's on a ball carrier and not late, I let this one go.

    Vets that have logged a few years under Troy seem to tune him out a bit.

    I thought the biggest problems in Toronto under his watch were injuries.....partially due to running an ageing vet team. GM problem more than coach problem.

    Still, can imagine that some of the senior player leaders had had their fill after 4 years
