The Mayor of Dewitt

What's SU's title drought have to do with your lie that Desko has burned bridges with Native Americans? Seems to be in poor taste to lie to push an agenda you have, which is obviously replace Desko.Longest title drought since the team started winning titles. Wake me when he gets back to a Final Four.
Lacrosse will always be lacking when it comes to visibility compared to our big money professional sports, but I doubt a first grader anywhere is making the decision or connection between beginning to play a sport and its future income potential. Your son is growing up in a culture of lacrosse that stems from home and your love of the sport as a fan. That's huge and being middle class doesn't hurt either. A coach like Drew Jenkins is even more magnified when lacrosse isn't in the home through TV watching or family influence.Lacrosse isnt a money sport... meaning you aren't making BIG $$ playing professionally. In turn, superior Athletes, many of them Black, do not give Lacrosse the time of day. Add to that the cost of what it takes to even participate in the sport and you have the current state of Lax.
From what I remember, Desko said something along the lines of "it's hard nowadays to know the correct terms to use". Surely in 2013 you have access to rosters and numbers; I'm not sure why you'd even use race to describe an opposing player during a film session...comes across as being odd, lazy and unprofessional at the very least.Embarrassing from Lelan. Where was Desko in all of this?
