If you watch both videos you can see the men are much more aggressive than the women.

Men's lacrosse is more aggressive because of the rules. In men's Lacrosse, you are allowed to hit, like in hockey, not in women's— only stick on stick (now that sounds funny! :)), I can't really be any more specific because that's the husbands sport and he's sleeping. He went to Syracuse, and played Lacrosse from an early age. He thinks that girls should be able to hit because our 9 year old is a tough one! But I think it's unfair for boys to be on girls teams, they develop differently and are more muscular by high school. And I'm sure my husband would not have wanted to play with girls— what does it prove? If a girl can play a boys sport, like football, it's usually because she is exceptional. If a boy forces his way onto a girls team, well I guess the hubby would say he's a 5 letter word for a cat that starts with a P. just sayin...

The rules regarding contact are substantially different, the last I looked.
