Congrats to the Georgia Swarm, 2017 NLL champs!
Awesome: The Swarm, game 2, the Thompson brothers and Lyle in particular.
Not awesome: Video production, twitter feed.
Also: was Keenan's decision a good one or should he be fired?
Awesome: Georgia’s offense, persistence, and momentum; Jeremy Thompson, and the Swarm social media people.
Not awesome: Kind of a sloppy game, questionable calls on Jordan MacIntosh (one in each direction?), Swarm seating assignments.
Awesome: Attendance in both Georgia (!) and Saskatchewan, great goals by Saskatchewan players with the initials MM, and the Swarm heading to their first championship.
Not awesome: Disorganized Mammoth, Georgia goal camera in the wrong place, and Stealth player Chris O’Dougherty beats Stealth fan Tyler.
We talk about the playoff picture, the great games to end the season, our picks for the NLL awards, and our predictions for the first round.
Awesome: Almost every game! Graeme Hossack’s game winner, Mark Steenhuis’s 1000th point, and the strong outings by non-playoff teams.
Not awesome: Mammoth heading into the playoffs with a couple of weak outings and the Bandits in the 4th quarter.
Awesome: Stealth make the post-season, Tyler Carlson and Tye Belanger play a couple of great games, and (surprise) Georgia’s offense is excellent.
Not awesome: John Gurtler, Bandits and Mammoth in general, Roughnecks miss the playoffs, and is it the end of the line for Cosmo and Grant?
Awesome: Bandits & Stealth get it done when they need to, Black Wolves dominate only the last 90 seconds of the game but it’s enough to win, Mike Poulin’s saves in the dying seconds.
Not awesome: Rock second half, Rush tailed off in the 4th quarter, and refs missed an important call in OT.
Also: Does Cordingley keep his job if the Bandits miss the playoffs, and does Locker keep his if the Stealth do?
