I guess I'm going to jump out there and ask the first question!
First, I'd like to thank Steve for all the hard work he does on behalf of the Mammoth, the players, and us, the fans. Not only has he subjected himself to the questions from the morning guys on KBPI, now he's subjecting himself to our questions too. I hope we don't cause him too much misery.
We all know that these guys have day jobs in a wide variety of professions, and it's got to be difficult to balance those jobs with playing in the NLL. More so when some of the guys are coming from not only other parts of the US, but Canada as well.
As a second boss for the Mammoth players, do you (and the other GM's) talk to the bosses at those other jobs about how the NLL works, giving them assurances that they won't miss too much work and so forth? Is there ever a struggle to make sure guys are available for a majority of games in a season?
And thanks again for answering questions.
