Again, offer stands open for you to come out. I have set those 2 weekends aside for you. Guess the only way to get them answered is to come out. If 2 weekends is not long enough, I will extend it to a month of free paint and entry for you. This way you can get a good taste of what we are made of. I hope you kindly accept my offer. Heck, I will even by you lunch. If you need the gas money I can extend that to you also. I know how difficult College can be so I am willing to work to fit your schedule
It does show me a lot that you are so confident as to do this, I do respect that, but your practices and dedication aren't what I'm doubting like I've said.
Me coming out to practice with you guys won't show me how you guys will do over the long haul of the season.

it just won't prove what I want to know. Like I've said, I have no doubt that have been practicing hard, I want to see if they are still doing this come the 4th and 5th event.

I get where your coming from... are you trying to say that just cuz your a pro team doesn't mean ur "pro" so to speak? Like you can be killing the first events but come towards the end... where the going gets tough.. Can they duke it out and come out on top or will they fold? Do you have the strength and determination to keep pushing forward instead of saying f it.. Its last couple events im tired.. Im worn out.. Blah blah blah... is that what yu mean?

No one's really even bothering to listen to GO HURRiCANES!!!! I mean to say, he's going out of his way in almost every post to say that he's not trying to put Explicit down, but that he's curious as to why so many people have hopped on board or, perhaps, why a team that, if memory serves, didn't win an XPSL event is being promoted to a professional level? Is it just because of their affiliation with XSV?

My point is, he's being courteous and polite in each of his posts, he doesn't need to take people's abuse or be consistently invited out to practice when it may or may not be feasible to for him.

Anyway, I see his point, but I wish this team the best of luck the USPL.

I want to see if they can keep up what they are doing for the whole year.

Right now they are practicing hard, I want to see if they have it in them to do it the whole season.

Sounds like a perfect time to see if you guys are still doing it right?

I'm home from school, you're deeper in the season, it will be 100+.

All the arguing, fighting, yelling means nothing in the end because ur just pushing each other to be better and in the end the team is still one whole and still loves each other.. Dedication is going that extra mile after practice or before practice doing ur own drills, working out... something you don't see if your reading or our not there.. Heart is something you gotta see for yourself.. When you see someone pushing themself to the limit just to make themselve and their teamates better... you can't see these things if ur not there.. Just my 2 cents

Good post...

This team has a big drive to be the best and they know it will not happen over a year or event two. Paintball is not like that, it takes years to get a pro team consistently winning. Look at the Hurricanes of 2008 the guys on that team have lived with each other and player with each other for years…

Explicit have the players and the hart to be a good team over time.

Good luck to them!

I'm not sure if people aren't giving Explicit any love because they aren't already a well established PRO team name? does anyone remember BLAST last yr? At the beginning of the season they were made up of Zach and a bunch of great players from EPICS D2 squad. They had their ups and downs but I don't think they got too much flak because BLAST was already a PRO team. Sure BLAST lost alot of the players as the yr went by and Bob put some Pros on the roster but that was expected. Explicit is pretty much the same concept, they entered the Pro ranks to mix it up with the big boys. If the entire Explicit squad joined an already established PRO team from last yr then we might not be hearing too much of 'Who the Hell are they?'. give the boys at Explicit a chance. I wish them all the luck for the new season!!
