That's gotta suck to get traded if they do.
Yeah, NLL players do not get paid enough to live on, which is understandable considering the amount of games a year and the amount of revenue the league brings in. They only practice one day a week to accomodate this. In fact, the Sting used to practice in Toronto, as most of the players lived in that area. Most players either play in other North American leagues when the NLL isnt in season, or have regular jobs outside of lacrosse (or both, Id assume).
