TBD Background

Tampa Bay Damage made their debut as a young hungry local team called Demolition. Led by owner and leader CJ Botsolas the team made a trip to Tampa to start playing Super 7 events. The team developed a growing desire to win and brought on coach/manager Joey Blute. At this point the team wanted to expand to the national level and compete in a more athleticly demanding venue. From here they made a disastrous attempt at Division 2 X-Ball. Coach Joey made drastic new changes in the way the team was organized and demanded a minimum of three solid days of practice per week, all the while teaching them the mental skills they needed to play together. When October rolled around the team had come a long way and felt that the name Tampa Bay Damage was a more fitting name for such a young and aggressive team. Orlando was a heartbreak for the players when they lost two matches by only 1 point and dominated the rest of their matches. They were so close and with their performance at World Cup the team knew they were ready for the Open X-ball division.

In the following February at the LA Open TBD astonished everyone by finishing 4th in the open division during only the team's third national event. Later in the year coach Paul Richards recognized the team's dedication and potential; he came forward and offered to help teach the young team what it takes to win. The year was a struggle, learning from mistakes along the way the team finished the season in 4th place. With nothing ever stopping them before, Tampa Bay Damage was ready to take on the NXL.

These group of guys seem really cool. From seeing them post on the forums to the crazy pics in the picture section, it seems like this team is going to garner respect from a lot of fans on the nation. I'll definately be checking on this team in the upcomming season.

Hey Guys;
I'm posting this to see if anyone can advise when you guys are having "TRYOUTS". I'm a Rokie player from a team that is no longer and I'm eager to get back in the mix. So, if anyone can advise I would greatly appreciated.

If me and my friends make a team call it Tampa Bay Rampage, would that be original? I'm not basing it off TBD, because we live in Tampa and are very aggressive on the trigger. So do you think it would be alright to use the name, or will it be unoriginal since you guys are named Tampa Bay Damage.
