The teams that would have drawn the most fans--Syracuse, Virginia and Hopkins--didn't make the 2012 Final Four.
Ticket prices continued to climb and tickets were difficult to purchase. The first option for fans buying tickets is for the entire weekend--all 5 games--instead of just the game they want.
Gillette Stadium was less than half full and there were traffic problems for fans and media getting to the Final Four games. New England Patriots games at Gillette Stadium draw many more fans and there are fewer traffic issues for those games.
Everywhere there are signs of growth and optmism about the changes in the sport of lacrosse, and yet there are problems that pop up and persist without anyone taking the time to try to fix them.
