The MLL has done some strange things in their day, but overall Punk feels that the MLL does a good job with what they have right now.  But Punk is wondering if he should register his discontent on the MLL-All Star Game or give the MLL praise?

Punk understands that it’s critical to get the kids to follow the game, so all the college stars that haven’t even played a half of a season, make the all-star game.  Good work guys!

31-15…that’s the kind of scoring that the league wants, so was that a good thing?

2-Point Accuracy Shot?  Benson Erwin was basically rolling the ball into the net.  Pretty cheesy.  Punk could’ve gave these pros a run for their $$ in that event.

Berger’s flying acrobat shot was actually more funny that anything.  I guess its tough to think of a new and exciting lax shot.

What are your thoughts on the game?  Good, bad…ugly?

Punk thinks that this has actually been an exciting season in the MLL thus far.  With Philly on the road all year and losing its first 3 games, they have really turned things around but have Long Island to deal with to take the East title.  Go figure that Denver is the top team in the West and probably the entire league.  They had 20,000+ at a game last week.  That’s awesome!  Denver is handsdown the best sports city in the US.   They’ll put fans in the seats for just about anything.

Two teams have been a disappointment so far.  Both Rochester and LA have winning records, but they should be doing a lot better.  Jr. and Casey on attack…are you kidding me!?

And finally, who knows what’s going on in San Fran and Chicago.  Punk expected good things from both and has been let down.  Perhaps more draft picks next year?  Something has got to be done.

Check out the names on this years all-star team.   This league is pretty darn good.
