The NY Times revisits the women’s headgear issue: “With Headgear Here, Girls’ Lacrosse Just Got Safer. Or Did It?”

Addressing growing concerns about head injuries, two companies this month became the first to sell lacrosse headgear that is built specifically for girls and that complies with new standards from the sport’s governing body. But the availability of the equipment has only made the touchy debate over whether girls should wear it even more stark.

Shout out to Marquette!: “Marquette officially announces dome at Valley Fields.”

After months of speculation and assessments, Marquette officially announced it will be building a dome over the middle field at Valley Fields. The project is expected to cost $3.6 million and be completed by January.

Here’s another article about the new Marquette dome.

The dome will primarily be used by Marquette's men’s and women’s lacrosse and soccer programs. Club and intramural sports participants also will be able to use the space.

The lacrosse teams practice in the valley regularly but often in the winter months have been forced to practice indoors in the Marquette Gymnasium on the main campus.

What’s Up, Philly?

“Rowers recently spotted a croc in the Schuylkill River. But due to the cold weather this week, it’s likely gone — and wouldn’t be a danger anyway.”

Fan violence at games is becoming a major problem for the NFL.

The data show per-game arrests over the past five seasons were highest at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium, where police instituted stricter policies in 2013 following a violent parking lot brawl that involved thrown glass bottles. Following San Diego, where police made 24.58 arrests per game between 2011 and 2015, were the stadiums in New York (21.96 arrests per game), Oakland (17.78) and Pittsburgh (16.75). The NFL sees high arrest numbers at its stadiums in San Diego, New York and Pittsburgh as byproducts of those franchises’ zero-tolerance policies; Oakland, though, is continually on the league's radar, along with San Francisco, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Philadelphia.
