haha i remember that!!! thats when NPPL/PSP was one leauge but known under the NPPL name. and the original guy said "sucks for ironmen" didnt say BL or LA. i know he was implying it but thats my 2 cents and probably get flamed by little kids who havent been playing more than a year or two at most.

Dam we are old!!!
Correct this is when Pure Sport Promotions ran the NPPL before the split and there was 1 Iron Man Team before Mr Youngblood jumped off Bob's Team to Start his own Iron Man Team. and yes The Combined Iron Men won it many years running.

Actually, the Ironmen did win both the NPPL season title and World Cup once. They are the only team to have ever done it. It was before the NPPL/PSP split back playing 10 man.

Watch Sunday Drivers. It tells the story.

There was the 2nd Ironmen Team (Bob. Dave, Matty, Micah, Telford, Ollie, etc) and was dominate team (Original was dominate also back in the beginning). Which won the different NPPLs. Soon after they broke apart and became LA Ironmen, Bob Long's Ironmen and part of XSV. That all happened at once. But back to the main topic, considering LA Ironmen are part of the original Ironmen I would put the NPPL wins on their resume.

What? No, no. no. Your timeline is way off. Oliver never played with Bob. I'm not sure if Matty or Micah did either to be honest. Oliver never played with Dave either.

The original woodsball Ironmen were one of the dominant 3 teams in professional paintball with Aftershock and the All Americans. Bob Long split off from the Ironmen in the mid to late 90's. He took the Ironmen's 2nd team and created Bob Long's Ironmen. That new team won the series title in 1998, one of their first years as Pros even though they didn't win a single stand alone event. The old team (SC Ironmen) struggled at first.

The SC Ironmen stuck with it, picked up a young kid named Oliver Lang and won events as well as the NPPL series title in 2000. You can watch that in Sunday Drivers. Ollie eventually left to go to Dynasty, the leagues split and the PSP switched to X-Ball.

Several players from the LA Ironmen (renamed from SC because NXL teams had to take a city name) split again in 2004 after a rough season in the NXL and created XSV.

bankruptcy doesnt mean anything. all it means is that they dont have to completely pay off their debts. while there might not be a season next year, or at least at the beginning of the year, it probably wont be long until a new league forms.

but that means the nppl name can be sold and come back, maybe just not owned by pacific paintball

and as many people have said before yes the ironmen have won a NPPL series title, just not a super 7 title...now what did i do with that copy of sunday drivers

Just a fyi...

NPPL will be sold. Its an asset. it will more than likely resume operations in 2010.

The problem is what standing will it have in the industry and what will the psp do to help 7man players transition?
