Phoenix Contact Pro Press Release




Phoenix, Arizona
September 2nd, 2012

Phoenix Contact to play NPPL World Championship in the professional division.

Phoenix Contact is a name you may not have heard before and its a name that has not existed long. The development of this team had modest roots and a few simple goals. To take the wealth of players and skill in Arizona and develop an organization that can be sustainable, marketable and professional in all aspects of the game. It is no doubt that our step into the professional ranks is unconventional, and there is a road of struggles ahead. We believe that our organization, structure, and approach to helping develop the sport as a whole will hold us together through the difficulties of professional infancy. It is our goal to help establish a greater attendance within the world of competitive paintball, first regionally, and expanding that development to the national stage.

The organization may be new, but the minds behind it and the experience within it are not. Players from former and separate organizations of Phoenix United, Portland Uprising, the Seattle Naughty Dogs, and Strange, are helping to grow this new organization with the experience gained from the histories with each.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors who have believed in us and taken the gamble with us to this point, and those who will join us in the future Kee Action Sports, Empire Paintball, RPS, AXE, Z2, Acid Customs, Boss Paintball, Custom Products, FighterTown Paintball, Mesa Paintball Supply, The Arizona Paintball Players League (AZPPL), and Censys Designs Lab. We could not be in this position without your help!

Thank you for your support!

Phil Veatch Captain, Phoenix Contact

Who cares if their jersey colors are the same? Most paint breaks orange anyway. Smart move if you ask me.

That team had pro dreams but crumbled after a poor showing at Phx this year. The management wanted to continue a push for pro so they took what's left and combined with some NPPL OG's from Phx United, Az Mercs, and Phil.

It's nice to see an effort to play in the big league, but common.

Hellcats jumping in to D2 PSP instead of continued winning in D3 is eerily similar to this squad going in to pro instead of D1 or D2.
This really is not a Hellcats team and is in no way the same as any Hellcats team was. I have Remy and Tony and thats it.

The roster for the Hellcats team in Phoenix was a throw together team. Myself, Zak Smith and Joe played with them, but only practiced with the team once before the event and I had just recovered from a shoulder surgery....not an excuse for the performance, just a component reflecting some of the difficulties. So 3 players of the 10 listed, out of a PSP roster of 12 I believe. We weren't really able to make a steady impact at the time. Up until that point none of us had played with the Hellcats organization.

I don't think any Elevation players are on this squad, they're having a good year in D2 as it is.
And yes, most, if not all these guys are from Phoenix local at this point.

Phil, it's nice to know alot of NW folks moving Southwest and still repping that NW. I got folks in Surprise, so I may be coming down to ball sometime after Vegas. Good luck with the new pro team!

A few observations..

1. All new teams bought their place in NPPL. This is no different.. Even Bosh bought a spot for elevation in 09.

2. This team has some solid players. However Tubby Joe Vulca should never ever play pro.

3. Ryan Cuaderno, you are a huge hater. I've watched you talk **** for 4 days on PBAZ. Elevation played contact Sunday... How did it go?

4. PPJM .. Jeff Milam was a huge part of Elevation/nXE for 8+ years. Why did he leave. He is better than most of elevation.. Except maybe Augie.

5. Phil also played for Elevation


Good luck to any Team out of Az.



She's a giants fan folks!!
6. Contact needs to drop Joe and pick up Adam
Keep hating Ryan...are they somehow stepping on your piggies?

I'd consider keaton and brent hellcats.

Hellcats have a history... They used to be a scrub team in Tucson who had like 5 diff teams. They raped the AZPPL after Bosch left and undercut many local paint sponsors. After a few years many AZ teams were Dwindling. In the video posted you see some of AZs best hired guns playing for the love of the game. Tim Cerruti amd Adam Vese are of United and Elevation lineage and go hard. The chubby kid yelling a lot is Alex Rodriguez now killing it for Ironmen

Contact has some brain trust from Hellcats and Biohazard that are involved. Tony is listed as the owner. Phil runs the new face of AZPPL and so far has done a good job.

There is talent here. There are just too many fields and too many haters. NPPL sells pro franchise spots. They are hurting. Hate on the league.. Not a group of guys trying to play pro, many for the first time. What's the worst that can happen?

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
