Well first thing, I had no idea that the National Lacrosse League allowed fighting: I have seen only a handful of NLL matches, but have never caught a scuffle. It appears, like hockey, there are enforcers on some teams and in the above video New England Wolves’ Bill O’Brien shows why he is one of the best.

And while a hockey fight is about balance and position, a lacrosse one is just about wailing on an individual until he cannot take it anymore. I have seen street fights that looked prettier than this. Still, this little moment, which has gone viral, has somewhat peaked my interest in the NLL. If intensity is running this high, maybe next time I will seek out and watch a game.
