When will lacrosse become mainstream? Either the MLL or NLL, I personally prefer watching Field, but Box isn't that bad, I just can't stand the goalie uniforms. Currently the MLL has 9 teams, all along the east coast except Denver. During the 2016 offseason i specifically remember Gross explaining the expansion plan, which was to get around 14-16 teams by 2022, which included expansion in 2017 to even the field at 10 teams. Most rumors have Dallas or Houston getting a team (or even the Rochester Rattlers relocating to one of those cities) but the MLL has dismissed any rumors and Gross is stepping down this season so I doubt they'll be anything major this season. The NLL has 9 teams but they announced an expansion team to San Diego this season, and potentially Philadelphia as well. The last 4-5 seasons in the NLL have been rather stable (besides a butt load of relocation). And more and more MLL players have started playing in the NLL during the MLL offseason. But I wouldn't be surprised if the San Diego team folds in a few seasons if the owner doesn't get his desired NBA team. I could see both leagues becoming mainstream, but there's only room for one, since there's already 5 mainstream sports leagues in the US and Canada (6 if you count the CFL). I think the MLL has the greatest chance due to their growth and slow approach to 16 teams, at least compared to the MLS which started only a few seasons before it and is already pushing 24 teams.
I found out about Lacrosse about mid season 2014 of MLL. I've since became a fan of the league and the New York Lizards (2015 champs!!) I decided to make this topic page since there isn't a good lacrosse page on this website So I wanted to start this off with 2 topics 1 with the recent news of the Atlanta Blaze expansion, what city will also get a team? I think it will be either Philly, Toronto/Hamilton, or LA. I don't believe that Houston or a Texas team will get a team this early 2 since last year I missed the draft, I can't wait for the 2016 MLL draft, but I don't watch NCAA lacrosse much besides the NCAA championship. But I wanted to know what some of the top prospects are (I know there's Burnluhr, Jones or something, Rambo, and that's really all I remember) tho I know that the Lizards won't get any 1st or 2nd rounders for like 3 years ???
I have a list of cities that I will use but if there is another city that you want me to add I will do it, or if you want me to take any out. The list of cities as of now: Richmond Rebels Chicago Wind Los Angles Fame Atlanta Toronto Seattle Killer Whales Dallas Rough riders Houston Phoenix Pumas Detroit Philadelphia Founders San Francisco Pittsburgh Maulers Salt Lake City/Utah Minneapolis Portland Indianapolis Louisville Louisiana Gators Milwaukee Hogs Cincinnati Rivermen Omaha Rio Grande Valley St.Louis That is all i have right now. I know my concepts will suck so I want feedback on how i can make them better. Also give Ideas for mascot names
