Brodie Merrill apologizes

There was much discussion about the lack of a post-game handsshake between teh Washington Stealth and Edmonton Rush this weekend. As a result, captain Brodie Merrill offers up this apology on the Rush Facebook page.

"On behalf of the Edmonton Rush, I would like to offer an apology for walking off the floor on Saturday, March 5th, without participating in the customary post game hand shake. There were some early signs that a couple isolated and minor altercations could escalate into something more serious; potentially putting both teams in a compromising position. We thought it was best to step away from the situation and let cooler heads prevail. It is in no way a reflection of the respect we have for the Washington Stealth, or the game of lacrosse. The Edmonton Rush will continue to reinforce strong sportsmanship decisions on and off the floor."


Captain, Brodie Merrill
