How do i know what lacrosse stick to get?

December 23rd, 2012 2 comments

I have a Brine A6 aluminum shaft and a Brine M1 head. I got the stick for free and have been wanting to actually get into lacrosse. The shaft is too small and i need to replace the netting in it anyway. I would like to just buy a whole new stick but dont know which one. I play offense if that helps. Im looking to spend only up to $150 for a stick. Suggestions?

There are six Attackmen on the field at one time, three for each team. The Attackmen use "short-sticks". Attackmen must demonstrate good stick-handling with both hands. Attackmen must be able to handle the pressure of the opposing defenseman which are equipped with long sticks. Depending on the defensive scheme of the opposing team they are also the players who score most of the goals. An attackman must have a good sense of what is going on around him and where his teammates are at all times. The attackmen are also responsible for setting up in fast or slow break formation when a "middie" or clearing defenseman has a breakaway. This generally looks like an "L" with two at goal line extended (GLE) and one up towards the midfield away from the "middie" coming down. "Riding" takes place when the ball is turned over on the offensive end and the Attackmen are forced to defend the other teams defense from "Clearing" the ball to the fields opposite end.

Commonly referred to as "middies" six Midfielders are allowed on the field at once, three for each team. They are allowed to travel anywhere on the field as they play both offense and defense. There are two types of Midfielders, the defensive and offensive. The two can rotate by running off the sidelines. The Midfielders are allowed to use short-sticks and up to one long-pole. While on offense three short-sticks are generally used for their superior stick-handling. While on defense two short-sticks are used with one long-pole. Some teams have a designated face-off middie (fogo-face off get off) that takes the majority of face-offs and is usually quickly substituted after the face-off is complete.

In the men’s game defensive players are allowed to use "long poles", while in women’s lacrosse defensive players use the same type of stick as the other players on the field. The Defensemen uses his stick to throw checks and try to dislodge the ball. The "long-poles" may also play mid-field as a strategic defender, a.k.a. a Long-stick middie (LSM). Teams usually use this to anticipate losing the face-off and be stronger on defense. There are three Defensemen per team and one long stick midfielder allowed on the field at a time in NCAA and High School competition.

Main article: Goalkeeper (field lacrosse)
The goalkeeper’s job is to prevent the ball from getting into the goal. Goalies also direct the team defense. Goalies need to be tough both physically and mentally. Also the Goalie needs to be the loudest player on the field calling the position of the ball at all times so the defense can concentrate on the man they are covering instead of where the ball is. The Goalie needs to be able to keep his composure on the field while enduring shots that are capable of reaching over 100 MPH.

Box lacrosse

National Lacrosse League gameMain article: Box lacrosse
Canadians most commonly play box lacrosse, an indoor version of the game played by teams of six on ice hockey rinks where the ice has been removed or covered by artificial turf. The enclosed playing area is called a box, in contrast to the open playing field of the traditional game. This version of the game was introduced in the 1930s to promote business for hockey arenas, and within a several years had nearly supplanted field lacrosse in Canada.

In box lacrosse the goal is smaller (4′ X 4’9") than in outdoor lacrosse, and the goaltender wears much more protective padding. There is a shot clock and the attacking team must take a shot on goal within 30 seconds of gaining possession of the ball. Cross-checking is legal in box lacrosse in contrast to the field game where it is considered a penalty.

Indoor lacrosse is a version of box lacrosse played by the National Lacrosse League, which employs slight rule changes from the traditional box game. Notably, the games are played during the winter, not only in regions where summer lacrosse is popular but also in regions where lacrosse is rarely played in summer. This version of the game was intended to be less violent than box lacrosse, although changes in box lacrosse rules have reduced some of its violent play and a change in indoor lacrosse rules to permit cross-checking (hitting another player with the stick with one’s hands apart on the shaft) have made it more violent. The chief differences between the two forms of the indoor game now are that indoor lacrosse games consist of 4 x 15 minute quarters compared with 3 x 20 minute periods in box lacrosse, and that indoor lacrosse players may use only sticks with hollow shafts, while box lacrosse permits solid wooden sticks. Indoor lacrosse is always played on artificial turf (sometimes called "carpet"), while box lacrosse is usually played on bare concrete.

Women’s lacrosse

2005 NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Championship where the Virginia Cavaliers lost to the Northwestern WildcatsMain article: Women’s lacrosse
The details which follow are the USA rules. International women’s lacrosse rules are slightly different.

The rules of women’s lacrosse differ significantly from men’s lacrosse and are specifically designed to allow less physical contact between players. As a result of the lack of contact, the only protective equipment required is eyewear and a mouthguard.[14] Although these are the only protective equipment, there are still many injuries due to accidental checks to the head and the overall aggressiveness of the sport. The pockets of women’s sticks are shallower than those of the men, making the ball harder to catch and more difficult to shoot at high speed. Women play with three attackers (or "homes"), five midfielders (or "middies"), three defenders (starting from the back, called "point", "cover point", and "third man"), and one goalie. Seven players play attack at one time and seven defenders are present.There is a restraining line that keeps the other four players (plus the goalie) from going into the attack. If those players cross the line, they are considered offsides and a penalty is given.

In women’s lacrosse, players may only check if the check is directed away from the ball carrier’s head. Also, players may only check using the side of their stick. If caught by one of the referees using the flat of the head, it will be called as a "held check" and the opposing team will get the ball.

There are two types of fouls in woman’s lacrosse, major and minor.When a minor foul is committed anywhere on the field, the player who fouled is set four meters to whichever side she was guarding the person she obstructed. If a major foul occurs outside of the 12 meter fan or eight meter arc, the fouler must stand four meters behind the player she fouled.

There are two different surroundings around the goal on both sides of the field. The eight meter arc and the 12 meter fan. When committing a major foul inside either of these areas, all players that were previously insi

Cybersquatting, upcoming movie question.?

July 15th, 2012 2 comments

I’m just learning about cybersquatting. I have some questions. Heres my scenario:

I recently purchased the domain name CLOVERFIELD-2.COM in hopes of a sequel to the blockbuster movie cloverfield would be produced. I was hoping to sell the domain sooner (to people who buy/sell domains), or later (to the actual promoters of the movie). I didn’t know of cybersquatting when I bought this, and now i’m worried.

I also have the domain up for sale (for 500$) on ebay right now .. am i in any immediate legal danger? Should I cancel the auction, and even perhaps unregister the domain?

Or is it only illegal if the movie is developed, and I decline to surrender the domain?
I have since ended the auction, and the domain is no longer being promoted as on sale.

Does just owning the domain, (and not using it) put me in any legal danger?

Looks like the federal law known as the "Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act" could make you liable for anywhere from $1,000 to $300,000 if found to have engaged in the practice. According to summaries at wikipedia (so take them with a grain of salt) the law defines cybersquatting as an instance where (1) the trademark owner’s mark is distinctive or famous; (2) the domain name owner acted in bad faith to profit from the mark; and (3) the domain name and the trademark are either identical or confusingly similar (or dilutive for famous trademarks).

Without knowing all the facts or the law in its entirety, it’s certainly impossible to give you legal advice here, but from your limited description it looks like you might already be in jeopardy on all three points listed above.
