    Background: Since the time when dozens of red indians played three-day games of something then called "baggataway", America's oldest sport, Lacrosse, has been through a great many changes.

    But none so drastic as the latest one ... Lacrosse has moved from its traditional outdoor playing field to the inside of sports stadiums.

    However, the game's keynote - violence during play - has survived the change. Although the indoor activities have had an inauspicious beginning (so far there are more empty seats than anything else inside stadium) the sports psychologists predict the violence will soon draw in the crowds.
