Re: I had a similar reaction... but I am willing to cut him some slack

Starsia is a media hound - Even when the program was falling apart he was more interested in his cover story on the front cover of Inside Lacrosse with his favorite players and trying to make Virginia Lacrosse "great again". Instead of doing what was best for the team and the program he was more interested in keeping his name in the media. Well that blew up in his face since the team had a horrible season post that article. Lacrosse was taken away from him because he was never going to walk away - who would leave making that kind of money and he was setting up his son don't forget! This recent article in closing states something to the effect that Dom wants to be remembered by how you treat people. Ironic! Starsia has a lot to think about! Parents at the games said the program blew up becasue he did not treat all of his players the same and seperated the team - coverups and scandals and different rules for different players. Ironically treating people well is not his strong suit but he does seem to pick the 'politically correct' lacrosse factions to keep him looking good and to keephis name in Inside Lacrosse. He does have a lot of time now to reflect on what happened. He is trying again to spin things around and make sense of the fall of the program right before his eyes which did not happen overnight! Such a shame to have a great coaching career go out like this but he is still craving the limelight. Article is a sad attempt. I went to many lacrosse college and highschool playoff games this past season and you never see a kid wearing a UVA lacrosse shirt anymore where a few years back it was the norm - UVA lacrosse Duke, UNC, Maryland, Hopkins - now you see one and it stands out - a real shame.
