Lacrosse league president vows to tackle racism in the sport

Saskatoon Morning

A racist incident at a National Lacrosse League game in Philadephia last weekend continues to garner attention. The public address announcer for the Philadelphia Wings has been fired. During the game against the Georgia Swarm, Shawny Hill said "let's snip the ponytail" of Swarm player, Lyle Thompson, who is Indigenous. That led some people in the crowd to yell "scalp" him. Nick Saskiewicz is the N-L-L Commissioner. He says the league will continue to tackle racism.
