what do you think about lacrosse players? rapists? spoiled rich kids?

#1
Yeah so the titles self explanatory...i know i did a thread a couple of days ago about sports and it got a lot more responses than i expected and i just want to thank those that responded...anyways i was sitting outside with my lacrosse stick the other day and this old guy comes up to me and laughs and says, "you play for duke lacrosse?" and i just got pissed...so it got me thinking about what non-players think of the sport, i want to know what image lacrosse players seem to have, perhaps the whole duke scandal affected your opinions

oh and all ignorance is welcome, its alright if you hate the sport i just want to know what you guys think

That's nothing compared to the **** tennis players get.

I think it's a great sport, I would choose it over football or baseball any day.

My friend is kind of a hero because he started the first lacrosse team at my school and everyone loves it.

considering my ignorance tells me lacrosse is a mostly private school sport (no school i've ever visited, or attended has had it) i would probably say spoiled rich kids. nuthin wrong with that though

You seriously need to get your dog a playmate.. either another dog or your hand cause thats gotta be hard on your animal... you every try masturbating with your nose?

Yeah, I believe that the Duke lacrosse players were found to be innocent and the entire story was a fabrication. I hate when people only hear about part of the story and start acting like they know everything (ex. the old man you mentioned TS).

well the duke case was bull****. But yeah, i kinda see it as a rich-man's football. The only schools that have a program are the rich schools in my area.
#20
I play LaCrosse (greatest sport in the world IMO) and im actuall lower-middle class, so its not just rich kids

Its actually a real cocky sport, so we can be seen as assholes, the majority of my team im talking. but yea its a blast

I have to admit that when i first saw lacrosse, i said wtf? but honestly pick up a stick and try it, i guarantee (unless you have no hand-eye coordination whatsoever) that you will change your mind about the sport...and yeah the top high schools in the country for lax are private schools but then again all the Ivy League universities have Division 1 lacrosse teams and are very prestigious

I made fun of the national guard in front of some kid that was in it. He tried to kill me but failed just like they always do.

I play lacrosse and I doubt that many people think all or most or many lacrosse players are rapists or spoiled.
I'm a rockstar without the skills, fame, or income.

I played Lacrosse freshman year. My high school didn't have enough money for the team so it was an organization outside of school, so it's not just for private schools. I sort of lost interest in the sport, mainly because all the other kids on the team (and most of the people in the area) are rich and spoiled and my family is definetly not rich so I don't have the luxury of being a spoiled brat. A lot of the guys were assholes, especially attack players. I'm telling you, every attack player I've met has been completely full of himself. I'm still friends with some good guys from that team though.

God, that was a useless ramble
Quote by J-Spoon
I did a forward roll into a backflip, caught the les paul and blasted out a face melting version of stairway to intimidate this mentally retarted kid on life support in a wheelchair that was trying to play it through an MG. What a loser.
