The Men’s Lacrosse Rules Committee has reversed an earlier recommendation made just over a month ago to eliminate the motorcyle grip on faceoffs.

In an announcement today, the committee announced that after considering the feedback it received since that Aug. 3 decision, it will no longer ban the grip.

Several other rules changes, including the implementation of a 30-second shot clock after a stall warning, are still in effect.

    This is how it should be. The shot clock had better stay though.

    So the Rules Committee in effect says “Never mind” LOL

    Good thing they came to their senses on the motorcycle grip. I don’t understand what they were thinking when they made the initial proposal to eliminate it.
