I’m talking Warrior, Stx, string king and things like that. I’ll be honest the defense does not have a 50:50 shot at taking the ball away. The shooter rule improved this but the sticks and mesh still need to be adjusted.

And don’t come with that weak, overplayed argument that the technology is here so we need to keep it. Fix the sticks. Baseball has metal bats but they don’t let pros use them. Gold has rules on the type of grooves you can use in your club.

It is also bad for the growth of the game. More rules = more problems.

Fix the sticks and the stall, shot clock, pace of play conversation will go away while growing the game.

Am presently watching one of those D III games where the score is about as lopsided as a game between the old 1962 Amazing Mets vs the St Louis Cardinals.

Thankfully, the lords of lax have not succumbed to the inane notion that a shot clock is some kind of magic bullet. As always, let us first have parity before anyone discusses the notion of changing the rules to impose a shot clock.

So how many centuries are you proposing we wait then?

What EXACTLY do you mean by parity? And how do you propose to achieve this parity???

If I remember correctly there was a concern that a hard shot clock would lead to teams just packing in a zone defense with the offense playing catch on the perimeter until the last 10 seconds. The no face off rule of '79 rule was intended to create more transition did just the opposite, the same could be true with a hard shot clock. By trying to speed up play a create more transition coaches find a way to slow it down .
