Faddish, niche sport that has been around for years but has only come into prominence recently. Will soon go the way of roller hockey and ultimate frisbee and quickly forgotten by the American public. Athleticism is only partially required. The sport is more about skill than pure athleticism. The 'Urban Dictionary' board attacking baseball seems to be similar to the attack on the more established sport of skiing by snowboarders back in the mid 90's.
A bunch of Colorado and California Bay Area upper-middle class white kids are trying to earn self-affirmation by over-posting some glowing definitions about this prep sport they knew nothing about three years prior.
Lacrosse is a total establishment sport played by elites who thumb their nose at people like you and I----Don't give their sport equal footing to the likes of basketball and soccer. There is a reason NBA contracts are what they are----compare them to MLL or NLL star player contracts.
