I don't think dedication is something that is comparable between two different teams, it's not like I can see a dedication rating like this is Madden or something. What I'm saying is, you CAN'T just go out and say things they seem dedicated because they are happy for being pro- because who wouldn't be? I understand that they have this intense hell week thing, but as far as I can see they've only done that for the past 3 months at the most, right? I just don't see how you- someone that hasn't seen them play in person-you are only basing you opinion of what people are saying on the internet- can give them such a huge complement as of right now. I'd like to see how they handle the long haul of the season before I throw out things like calling them the most dedicated team there is.

Am I thinking illogically here?

I'm very happy for them, what about me doubting someone's opinion on them makes you think I'm not? Because I'm not coming in here jumping all over their nutsack? I would think people would like a bit of discussion and honesty for once.

This exact thread was made for this, wasn't this thread's purpose to discuss these types of things?

I would have waited at least after the first year of the uspl showing they are legit (not saying they aren't) and getting there name out instead of just like surprise here is a new pro team in a brand new paintball league ....but whatever just saying if they didn't know the XSV guys they wouldn't be in the position they are in is all....

Not to take away from the Team ...I wish them the best of luck in this new league and I'm intrested in what are going to do in it..


Go ahead and say it ...I'm now the bad guy for speaking my mind ....
No you aren't a bad guy, but I don't see how this hurts the USPL or paintball in general. As long as there are teams competing in a pro bracket, investing in a league, and creating an environment for other teams to compete in, then they are ranked where they play. If they are playing with/against teams in the PRO BRACKET they deserved to be called PRO.

EPIC at the end of the 07 season made the jump to PRO and found success. Kenny Tsuda is a great player and other obligations have pulled away the other players from currently competing, but that doesn't mean they don't have the right to fight in whatever division they wish.

Good Luck Rob

But look at teams like Ultimate, they DID NOT deserve it, but they were pro for years- I understand it was a different league, though.

Lol, you can bash on Ultimate all you want, you can bash on these guys all you want. But all I know is that Ultimate battled against the best teams in the world every single event. Explicit is going to do the same. Both Ultimate and these guys have a great attitude. I wish Explicit all the best. Shock the world boys!

Why is it everyone thinks I'm bashing Explicit? I don't understand.

I just think it's unfair to call such a new team the most dedicated pro team.

Go Hurricanes! I like how you are posting what you feel and your right that’s what this threads about!

I don’t know what to say if the truth be told! I don’t look at the team as pro yet! But with that being said, they got the pro spot and now they have the platform to be a pro team. But on the USPL contract it says pro so they should be called pro and have a forum.

I would say they are working harder that 90% of the pro teams right now but guess what… They NEED to and they know that. The big test will be 2 or 3 events in. If they are doing good then all will be well but if they are getting the **** kicked out of them it will be hard for them to keep going like they are.

Rob know what he has to do! With a little help from Rich and myself he with put it all together.

I’m a big fan of the guys and hope they show me how good they can be over this next few years.

JB

Just saying it for the record, but I do wholly support the team (though I know nothing about them) GL in the USPL you seem like a good bunch of guys.
