    A two paragraph sequence from the article caught my attention:

    ********
    Lauder is frustrated, as he sees politics and image playing as motivating the decision to leave him off the team.
    “The way I see it, is, I thought they wanted to win,” he said. “I thought everybody’s goal is, ‘we want to win.’ But after all it seems like, ‘how do we want to look?’”

    The Eastern Door wrote a story during last year’s world indoor championship about National Lacrosse League defencemen Bill O’Brien, whose father is Onondaga, but mother is Irish-American, and was left off the Nationals squad in place of three other non-passport holders.
    ********

    Troy speaks of "image" and "how do we want to look," and I found it vague.

    Does the next paragraph basically hint to a ethnic/racial bias against him? Not sure why else O'Brien's mother's heritage would be brought up.

    Wow! Way to keep the D honest with a half-second glance. Allows for the 1 v 1, and he had his way. Great move and field awareness.
