Everyone should be aware that they were unable to win playing the game on the field. They had to have the Referees do it for them on questionable stick checks. they may have gotten the Gold but they did not/could not win it playing the game!!

Are stick checks no longer unquestionable in field lacrosse? n/m

Sorry, but stick checks are certainly part of the game. More so than using illegal equipment anyways

The stick check rules need to be clear and consistent, the check needs to be done in front of the teams and they need to be told and shown what has caused the stick to fail the stick check especially in a championship game.
Any coach that instructs his players to switch sticks or run off the field of play and hide sticks after a goal is scored should be ejected from the game and hearing the RIC refer to that behaviour as good coaching is reprehensible.
If the coach of my sons team had to call excessive stick checks to win a game because the boys couldn't get it done on the field I would consider it a hollow victory and would not be happy with the coach.

All sticks were check by two different people prior to the game and the officials would not do the measurement in front of the teams nor would the illistrate why the sticks had been found illegal. just a convenient way to railroad a small centre team when the Western boys on the field can't get it done.

Do you honestly think there is a conspiracy to stop small centers from winning? Let's get real!

Referees are not supposed to measure the stick in front of the coaches or players, it is to be done at half.

Dont cheat! Then u wont have stick checks called against you. If you can't score or win by playing lacrosse without a stick thats too short or too pinched or has too deep a pocket then you deserve to lose. Don't get all self rightious because you got caught cheating

She:kon!

Rule 45 of the FIL Rulebook is pretty clear and consistent to me.  I have seen stick checks used in games effectively since it is a rule like any other and is available to both coaches.  Would you be happy with your son's coach because he allowed the other team to use illegal equipment to cheat and win?
