Premier Lacrosse League Returning in July with Quarantined Tournament Play

Man, things are getting good around here.

Korean baseball. German soccer. UFC returning on Saturday.

Now we’ve got the Premier Lacrosse League officially returning in July with a 20-game tournament that will be played over the course of 16 days.

From the league’s Twitter account:

This is interesting since other, bigger leagues had kicked around the idea of this tournament format to determine a champion, instead of finishing seasons outright, with a full playoff slate.

The PLL only has seven teams, however, so it’s much easier for them to pull off something like this, vs. putting 30 NBA teams into some kind of bracket that makes sense.

It’s not mentioned on the graphic, but NBC and NBCSN are picking up these games, so it’s an opportunity for the burgeoning league to get some eyeballs on the product. The PLL has only been around since 2018, and played just one full season thus far, so they’re naturally positioned to do a smaller-scale event. They don’t have teams stationed in specific markets, but last year traveled to a variety of locations and played their games there, kind of like a touring musical act.

(Just so we’re being clear, PLL is the outdoor league. The Wings play in the NLL, which is the indoor box lacrosse league. They were nearing the end of their season when the pandemic hit.)

  1. lax is a man’s sport kinkead. Not like that footsy patty cake soccer bs. Saw you out making Grubhub deliveries the other day.

      1. mike missanelli intern posting on here again. keep pushing your propaganda mikey. your skeletons are coming out of your closet

        1. Trump is doing great. Ignoring all the warnings was genius. Liberals just can’t figure that out. Saying it will magically disappear makes him seem smart. The drinking bleach idea could work. Pushing medicines that don’t work – awesome move. Blame Obama and the WHO – calculated. Stay up at night and tweet childish stuff. Dems just don’t get it.

          Having a re-entry plan that you don’t support even though it is your plan. Brilliant.

          I wonder why is team won’t let him speak anymore. He is crushing it.

          Not sure why liberals can’t see how great he is doing. The economy is rolling. Nobody is dying. He says nothing is going on and then says it a disaster caused by Obama.

          MAGA!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  2. “Joe Biden calls shooting of unarmed Black Man by 2 White Men in Georgia’Cold Blooded Murder’”.
    Without even knowing the facts behind the case; senile Biden is making his opinion known.

    1. And not a peep from Biden about the vast majority of Blacks killing innocent Whites

  3. What cowards. They probably complain about how unfair it is to be white.

    Some guarantees.

    NRA types
    Have MAGA hats
    Have ugly wives
    Uneducated
    Can’t fight so they shoot

    You know the type.

  4. No one in this case was shot while jogging.
    He was shot while struggling for a firearm.

  5. Oh well…..just like Trayvon Martin & Michael Brown, this angelic man with a lengthy criminal background lost a gun struggle.
