The shorts feel a little over done, but not bad overall. 

Reminds me of the old McDonald's All American Game uniform shorts.

I never understood the wire mesh goggles that women Lacrosse players wear.  Why no helmets?

Men's and women's lacrosse are different variations of the same sport. The men's game allows way more physicality, making helmets a necessity.

It's still got to hurt if you get hit in the face with a ball or stick and you're only wearing a tiny little cage over your eyes.

Since women's lacrosse is considered a "semi-contact" sport a full helmet isn't required. But several college teams have gone to this helmet/goggle combo for their players.

The upstart minor league box-lacrosse PBLA has released their "Final Four" name finalists for each team and...hoo boy.

 

Binghamton: Bombers, Bravehearts, Blast, Brawlers

Charlotte: Fury, Bootleggers, Goal Diggers, United LAX

Elmira: Tilt, Express, Renegades, Huckleberries

Hampton: Neptunes, Salty Crabs, Hammerheads, Hooligans

New England: Warriors, Rebellion, United LAX, Chowderheads

Syracuse: Sasquatch, Revolution, Flow, Sparklemuffins

Trenton: Terror, Jersey Shorehounds, Titans, New Jersey Chopper Squad

 

I thought all my submissions were better (Binghamton Batallion, Charlotte Torque, Elmira Storm, Hampton Ironclads, New England Evergreens, Syracuse Express and Trenton Ambush)...but heaven only knows what went into their process.

 

EDIT: It appears "Woke Beavers" has been removed from the Binghamton name-the-team poll, replaced with "Blast."

It was a good idea in theory but I don't really get the "worn" look to them. 

It might have helped if the jersey numbers and Champion logo didn't stand out so much. It's like they went retro with every other part of the jerseys but went modern there. 

 

If they were to go that route they should have gone all in and made the numbers/name on back match the look of the team names on the front and sleeve stripes. 

 

Seeing how these are supposed to be throwback inspired, they should not have included the big Champion logo on the chest. The retro style Champion patch near the bottom hem is all they needed.

Or copy the old college football jerseys and put a smaller Champion logo on the left sleeve. I think heavy mesh on the shoulders/yoke would be more appropriate too.

Was there any difference between old football and lacrosse jerseys back in the day? I'm sure football jerseys were probably more durable, but from a design standpoint I always thought there was no difference between football jerseys (with loose sleeve cuffs) and lacrosse jerseys. 

 

Honestly it looks like the PLL teams are wearing the same Champion jerseys my teams used to wear in football practice.

I remember having an old Ohio State jersey from the 1980's having that heavy mesh, but it also had that elastic insert on the sides rather than being stitched like the lacrosse jerseys. I thought that was the only difference.

So that lack of a yoke doesn't even match older Champion jerseys.
