The Mess that is the Iroquois in the World Lacrosse Championship

SBNation has a good writeup covering the mess here.

It seems as if their tradition and pride of having their own nation with their own passports caused the issue here but it’s sad to see other governments not stepping up to quickly resolve the issue.  I understand the increased airline security post 9/11 but these are professional athletes, I really don’t see a reason to prevent them from leaving or entering a country.

Lets hope that’s all it was…a political red-taped mess, and there are no conspiracy theories here.  The Iroquois were not just there for the tradition considering they invented the game but they were a serious contender that was scheduled to play England tonight.
