Regardless of the stupid cage vs. no cage argument, people need to keep their sticks down and everyone needs to pressure the idiots who don't. The problem is too many people think 'it's just part of the game', which is why we have this problem. It's also precisely the reason the NCAA coaches have been trying to get cages OUT of their game for years and why they just might do it this year.
Agreed, people definitely need to control their sticks. But it happens by accident way too often. How many times do you see a stick sliding up the shaft of another? How about follow throughs? How about scrums where sticks are getting thrown up by other sticks? And those are only the stick fouls, you get random elbows, shoulders to the head all the time as well.
