  • Ot: worst coaching decision ever, NLL

    National lacrosse league finals, best of three, the Rush are the home team in game two, and they lost game one. The Rush are up by one with 10 secs left. Due to a time out, they start the play with the ball in their end, no faceoff even. The Swarm have pulled their goalie giving them 6 runners. The Rush coach......... pulls his goalie to even out runners..... WTF.. they end up coughing up the ball, the Swarm get it and score. Of course the swarm score in OT to win the title. All the Rush had to do was leave the goalie in, and have the player starting with the ball chuck it down the other end. Just incredible.

    How do you get to be a professional coach and make that kind of mistake? Holy crap.

    Yet, apparently, both coaches are saying that was the right move (and another article said this happened earlier in the year).

      The usual move it to make that one pass and run out the clock. I don't know what the TO situation was, which could make a difference in strategy, but I just can't agree with the risk of pulling the goalie under any circumstances.

      thanks form the article link.
