Too much hand eye coordination involving a ball smaller than a basketball? I think coordination is coordination, an athlete is an athlete. So are you saying a top athlete like Sanders or Iverson are somehow incapable of learning the skills to play lacrosse? And their speed, quickness, agility and coordination wouldn't be an asset? I want to meet some of these superstar lacrosse players. If they are truly as athletic as you guys are making them out to be, they could easily make a transition to the NBA or NFL. Do you know what an NFL DB makes? Thats a damn good job. And don't play the "not big or strong enough" card. A lot of cornerbacks are 5'8" 175

Infinitely more complex isn't that much of a stretch. The real complexity of football lies in the strategies of the offensive and devensive coordinators. The rest is pretty much cookie cutter for the players. For example, they know exactly which route to run, who to guard, where to guard, etc.
