Ireland Lacrosse Withdraws From The World Games

Jay Rogét

The Ireland Men’s National Lacrosse Team has voluntarily withdrawn from the 2022 World Games so the Iroquois National Team will have a spot in the eight-team tournament.  

 

In case you’re unaware, the Iroquois National Team has been getting dicked around for a couple months by the International World Games Association (IWGA).  The IWGA and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) weren’t going to allow the Iroquois Nationals to play because they didn’t recognize the Haudenosaunee Confederacy as a sovereign nation.  

The Haudenosaunee literally invented the sport of lacrosse.  If it wasn’t for them, there’d be no flow, no worm-burners or rippin cheddar.  There’d be no laxtitutes, or rusty gates.  

Any person who has ever played the sport of lacrosse owes a huge ‘thank you’ to the Haudenosaunee.  Instead of a ‘thank you’ the IWGA and IOC tried to give them a ‘fuck you.’  

Not today, nerds! 

After a huge uprising on social media from lacrosse fans, players, and supporters of the Iroquois, the suits finally decided to grant them eligibility to play the 2022 World Games, if they qualify under criteria that has yet to be laid out.  Who knows what the eligibility criteria will be, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.  

By Ireland bowing out of the tournament, it frees up a spot for the Iroquois.  Hopefully, whatever the criteria is, both teams will be able to compete.  We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out.
