Matt Rambo, Devan Kaney, Pat Gregoire: Lacrosse Classified, Ep. 62

Season 2, Ep. 10

This week on Lacrosse Classified, we have not two, but three guests on the lineup. Pat Gregoire, Matt Rambo and Devan Kaney all join the show.


First up is the color commentator for the Halifax Thunderbirds and contributor to Lacrosse Flash, Smokin' Pat Gregoire. We talk about the success of the Thunderbirds, what it takes to get his hair in place, and has his man-crush changed from Bradley Kri to Graeme Hossack?

Secondly, we speak with Matt Rambo of the Philadelphia Wings and Whipsnakes of the PLL. We speak about the recent success of the Wings, the transition of his game to the box game, the growth of the US men's box lacrosse team and scoring the overtime winner in the PLL championship.


Finally, this week we have Devan Kaney of the NLL and field reporter for the Philadelphia Wings. Devan produces a number of segments for the NLL every week including The Rundown and Huddle Up. We talk about her recent trips to LaxCon and San Diego, who her memorable player interviews were with and who is her favorite analyst to talk to.


As always we go Under Review, brought to you by G Wilson Construction and this week we explain the Alterna Cup. Plus we've got Stampede Tack's #WhoYaGott where Evan takes his accustomed spot on top of the standings with eight games to pick from this week. And we have our first-ever female winner of Who Ya Gott!

Jeff Shattler, Lyle Thompson: Lacrosse Classified, Ep. 61

Season 2, Ep. 9

On this week's edition of Lacrosse Classified, we talk about goaltending depth in the NLL in our G Wilson Construction Under Review and Jake manages to win last week's Stampede Tack Who Ya Gott, but we don't hand him the prize. Jeff Shattler and Lyle Thompson join us on the show.


First up is former NLL MVP, Jeff Shattler of the Saskatchewan Rush. We talk about the adjustment to the three lefty system and about the growth of lacrosse in Saskatchewan and the Shattler Lacrosse Academy.


Then we have another former MVP, Lyle Thompson of the Georgia Swarm. We get into such a detailed talk about life with Lyle that we almost forget to talk about lacrosse.

Kevin Crowley, Bradley Kri: Lacrosse Classified, Ep. 60

Season 2, Ep. 8

On this week's edition of Lacrosse Classified, we have a big eight games on hand in Week 5 to sift through in this week's Stampede Tack Who We Had and discuss how important were faceoffs this weekend. Kevin Crowley and Bradley Kri join us on the show.


In Under Review, we look at the delay-of-game penalty assessed to Calgary on Saturday night and revisit when we talked about their travel schedule with Curt Malawsky just a few months earlier.


Our first guest is the Big Cat, Kevin Crowley of the Philadelphia Wings. The first overall pick in the 2011 NLL draft put up 7 points in a key 8-7 win over Calgary Saturday night. We talk about the final possession, what it means to play in Philly where Kevin has lived for the past 7 years and what his worst travel nightmare has been in his NLL career.


Second up is Bradley Kri of the Toronto Rock. Kri is one of the most improved players in 2019, we talk about the Rock's win over Rochester this past weekend, how much of a toll taking faceoffs has on his body and Pat Gregoire's man-crush on Brad.

Robert Hope, Brad Challoner: Lacrosse Classified, Ep. 59

Season 2, Ep. 7

This week on Lacrosse Classified we have just two games to recap in Stampede Tack's Who We Had, but have a massive eight games for this week's Who Ya Gott. Robert Hope and Brad Challoner join us on the show.


Editor's Note: We'd like to give an official "Santa Warning." If you have kids tuning in to the podcast along with you, be careful about them listening as we talk about some real truths about the big man...


In the wake of the Brett Mydske free agent signing, we add some compensatory picks in our G Wilson Constriction Under Review.

First up, we have Robert Hope of the Colorado Mammoth, Peterborough Lakers and Team Canada. We discuss the Mammoth's early success on defense, their big overtime win against Calgary and ask the question, "Is the Mann Cup safe?"


Next up is the voice of the Vancouver Warriors, and former host of Lacrosse Classified Brad Challoner. We discuss the impact of the Brett Mydske signing, the performance of the Warriors to date and Brad's affliction with Christmas music.

Callum Crawford, Keegan Bal: Lacrosse Classified, Ep. 58

Season 2, Ep. 6

On this edition of Lacrosse Classified, we have two guests who had big games in Week 3 of the NLL schedule. Callum Crawford and Keegan Bal join us on the show.


First up is Callum Crawford of the New England Black Wolves. The veteran — who fell just short of the league scoring title last season — has been ripping it up in the NLL through two games again this year. We talk about the Black Wolves' success, the rise of Douggie Jamieson, Callum's interesting flight to Saskatoon this past weekend and the success of his program in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


Next up is Keegan Bal of the Vancouver Warriors who had 8 points in the Warriors win over the Riptide on Saturday. Bal's story is an interesting one in which two years ago, he found himself out of a job in the NLL and was playing Senior B lacrosse in St. Albert when he got the call from Dan Richardson of the Warriors to come to camp to try out. The Warriors, who were looking for diamonds in the rough to build on their depth, embraced Bal, who repaid them with a 30 goal season in 2019, including a 14-point performance against Philadelphia in one game.


As always, we recap Week 3 in our Stampede Tack's Who We Had, we play #WhoYaGott where Evan and Jake are even in the standings again, news and notes, and in our G Wilson Construction Under Review, we explore a rule change which is still confusing teams, fans and officials alike in mucking the ball in the crease.

We also get into our Stampede Tack's #WhoYaGott and Who We Had. John Tavares and Ryan Benesch join us on the show, plus full recaps of Week 2 of the NLL.

Then we speak with Ryan Benesch of the Halifax Thunderbirds. The 9th all-time leader in NLL points discusses the atmosphere in Halifax, the hit-start to their game and just how many NLL teams he's played for.
