The only thing im taking out of this, is that its just an event coming up not a league, unless I missed somewhere that they were going to continue on after that.
But what I think is silly, is that he wants a league out of his own company's teams. Although the majority of his teams are dominate in the paintball world, I think it's stupid.
Im not saying that would not be any competition, but it would be pointless just to have your own company's teams in one league. Sorry but to me, thats hardly a league. You need to...whats the word im looking for...I dnk, inter-twine(sp) is all im saying.
I think BRL and Dynasty would spake most all the whole time, but if you brought in say trauma and ironmen and XSV (+NRG) then it would again be more interesting. But what would be the point, they already have 3 (more if you count foreign(sp) ) and so yeah, there would be no point. It is just costing the teams so much more money that they dont have. Only reason why SP teams can play it, is because the Garners will pay for it, because they are business Tycoons. Hell they are sponsoring it, so I wouldnt be suprised if its free.

Actually, I forgot about the wapl so yeah there's another.

Yeah, I guess cheaply made parts are the best products huh? The most common high-end gun within the higher leagues, Wpl, Nppl, Psp, to have issues during play is the shocker. They use a cheap aluminum to produce faster and due to that it bends easier and anno fades off it sooner. And to top it off, they don't have wonderful customer service compared to other companies such as Dye, and Eclipse.

I would have to contend that I would be better off with a pm6, ego, or a timmy.

Timmies due to the fact that Bob works hard on those guns then anyone else does hands down.

I have HEARD that the aluminum they use is actually better, it just don't hold anno well. Again, that's what I've HEARD.

How is a material better that doesn't even hold anno well? It's a lower grade aluminum, they can produce their guns faster while at the same time spend less doing it. The grade they use doesn't hold anno well and is more likely to bend compared to aluminum grade used on other high-end companies products.

I've heard that as well. I dont remember the exact specifications, but the aluminum they use is actually supposed to be a higher than average grade material.

As far as the Shocker being an inferior gun, it really comes down to design and its individual components.

Cole I understand you supporting the main sponsor behind the team your apart of and all. But I don't think that Spart Parts makes the best products!!!!! I think that DYE gives them a very big run for their money and so does several other companies in the industry.

I don't like Rich Garcia or Gerald Garcia because they play for Smart Parts, I like them because of them, not what they shoot or who they get sponsored by.

Best part.

Also....What if some kids were watching this new league...and said "I wanna play pro 'ball when i grow up!" They don't know the politics, it woul dbe basically impossible unless they made it on one of those teams or started a team that happened to end up owned by/sponsored by the head hanchos of the league. Geh.

it's all in the feel of what gun you like..

Myself, I owned a timmy, hated it, so I traded it for a shocker, and i still got my shocker.....

I shot an ego, hated the trigger setup, but they are a great little gun...

DM4/5/6/C whatever the hell they keep making, also I hate the trigger...but it's a nice little gun....

but in all perference, I pick my shocker over any gun, why because it's easy to maintance, no barbs any of that **** that a timmy has

I rather pay $500 for a gun (shocker), then $1300 (ego) for a gun that shoots the same as a $500 gun.....but if you got the money to spend on it, then A 1 for you!

The people that have all the problems with their guns are *******es that shouldn't own that gun....

enough of my rant...back on topic with the first post!

Err whatever you say bud. Legacy's players are amazing. My belief is their problem is age. Too many young players and too many "superstars". Big egos and big dreams ensure that a team will not play as a team. They earned their spot in the NXL. If I see a post like this from you again you are going to get banned.
