Goggedpb.com says USPL offered discounts to certain teams

The original thread was deleted.... I figure its worth people knowing

If its true than thats pretty lame for teams that paid full price. Instead of deleting this post again maybe a response or answer to the article?

its the cover story on http://www.goggedpb.com

I just figured it was worth putting out there, I follow his newsleads on twitter, www.twitter.com/goggedpb, they have some good stuff. Plus this kinda stuff isn't the best way to start off a national league.

Idk...the article provides no proof. It's a simple accusation that isn't backed up with anything besides heresy. I'm not saying that this isn't true, or that the person writing the article is a liar. I just think this is a pretty serious accusation to be justified by "I have several reliable sources"...just my .02..

It does not really sound like the same thing here. I know we paid the full price and if even 1 team got a discount then I am not really sure how that would be fair to all the other teams.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was true. Having about 85 paid teams for 5 man, pump, & div 1-3 is pretty bad for a National Event, especially being at Huntington Beach. Lowering the entry cost would attract more teams and make up in the high paint cost (atleast for non-paint sponsored teams). If this rumor happens to be true, I hope USPL makes it right for the teams that paid their full entry cost.

If you look through GoggedPB.com you will see that all of the posts about the USPL have been nothing but positive new stories. I don't think they are trying to stir anything up.

What about the WCPPL teams you gave discounts to?
