That was different then due to there were no established tournaments that were NATIONAL. So who was to say they weren't Pro teams...? Exactly ....NO ONE....As of Last season there were two leagues That were established as National Series ....NPPL and PSP. Explicit was neither Ranked D1 or semi pro in either "National Series" last season or even in the top 10 in ANY div NPPL or PSP....(go ahead check...be my guest).
So Playing XPSL proves they are Pro Talent? That's like saying oh we are awesome cause we owned everyone in the CFOA or NEPL or what ever...Its Not a National event so sorry boys....Pro teams of today Have came up through the ranks of National series ....(nppl and or PSP) ...Explicit just Appears like "Hey we are a pro team now",after doing well in the XPSL? Doesn't make much sense to me...
The team has ZERO credibility other then here say. Or doing well in a Non National tournament series...I don't doubt they have a lot of heart and dedication. What team doesn't in this country ? You say that this nationally unknown team has more heart and dedication then any other team in the country? Where is there National D1 or Semi pro champ trophy Or ANY National DIV champ trophy? Exactly they don't have one...What your saying is that Explicit has more heart and dedication then multi national champs Dynasty/Iron Kids...that started playing on a national level as kids not old enough to drive? ..Again I do not doubt they have a lot of heart and dedication to the sport but where is the hard were to prove it ? Where is all the Divisional domination on the national level to support there Extreme heart and dedication ....Contrary to popular belief of some. The west coast based series XPSL wasn't a National event and proves nothing on a national level.
With that said... I wish Explicit the best of luck in the USPL. As the Extreme underdog and non nationally known team. That happened to get there break to prove they can hang at the pro level of play.
And for all you that think I'm a hater. I hope they actually can hang with teams at the pro level as the underdog. Because its always nice to see the underdog win.
