Yes, In football everything is done by the book and there's really no freedom like there is in Lacrosse. In lacrosse you can do tricks and draw up your own play on the run. Also lacrosse takes more stamina and endurance. In football you get a break every fifteen seconds whereas in lacrosse a play can last over five minutes of non stop running and hitting. Although both are a contact sport lacrosse requires more mental and physical toughness and strength. You wear small pads in lacrosse for more mobility and speed so when you get hit, you get hit hard. Lacrosse is a faster paced game and is also is referred to as "The fastest game on two feet". Lacrosse was first used as a war game in Canada to train Indians on how to fight. I played both Highschool football and lacrosse and I can say that lacrosse was more physcially demanding than football. I often found myselft taking a hard beat down by another player in lacrosse at least two to three times a game but the best part is giving it back....................................................................................................this guy doesnt know what he is talking about. he obviously plays lacrosse and has probly never even worn a football helmet. so shut your face. football is a war on a feild. a war were nobody dies. yes we have breaks here and there but our intensity during those plays can not be matched with lacrosse. yes, lacrosse is nonstop but football players energy is 1000 times more in one play then probly half a lacrosse game. speed and endurance have nothing to do with thoughness.i have played both sports and i can tell you with the full truth that football is harder then lacrosse.......................ill just put it how it is. lacrose=running the whole time, hitting with metal poles, getting hit way harder with less pads. football= *throws ball* one guy gets hit ok lets all rest guys that was tiring
Yes lacrosse is rather rough. Even though lacrosse is one of the safest sports when you are talking about injuries like concussions you will probably get bruises on your arms and may get the wind knocked out of you.
It depends on your definition of "rougher." Lacrosse isn't as physically straining in the respect that there are no tackles like there are in football, however lacrosse requires more conditioning, constant long distance running and transitions from jogging to sprinting, whereas football focuses more on short running spurts because of the stop and play nature of the game.
what do you think?
•Lacrosse is heaps rough and Sofcrosse isn't. •Lacrosse sticks have no bar going across the catcher to stop the ball from falling out and the catcher is made out of some stringy stuff while Sofcrosse sticks' catcher is plastic and has the bar.
the Cherokee played a rough type of lacrosse that was so violent people often died during the games.
I believe lacrosse was named lacrosse because the head of the stick (the pocket/net) is called la Crosse in french. France, England and Eastern Europe is where it originated out of and so the name stuck.
New balance owns Warrior lacrosse and Warrior lacrosse owns Brine Lacrosse.
With a lacrosse stick and a lacrosse ball
it comes from the french "la crosse" which translated means "the stick"
