i was on d-side, and i agree with you. I was really slow with moving up the field. There was a few games i definitely could have bumped up alot quicker. Mostly i was trying to be passive-aggressive in case we started losing bodies and stuff like that.

And that's where a lot of our problems come from. We are more passive than aggressive. Look at the games we won. We took a lot of ground quickly and took those bodies down as well. We just need to get consistent with that type of game plan.

no, really, she is fine...thanks for asking...had that ball been 1/2 inch higher, i think we would have a real issue...all vision is good, and it's just cosmetic right now....we'll keep an eye on it and make sure nothing creeps along and goes bad.

The lack of everything (strategy, diversity, skills, knowledge, fundamentals, coaching, improvement and the ability to finish in tournaments) shows that there are too many "basic" things to work on. If you don't think we lack in any of these areas, i'd appreciate your input as you why you think so. I've seen little improvement over the last year and i don't see much progress happening in the next 6 months, so vegas is out of the question.

As for the next few events. spending $200+ a month on tournys and practices is a bad investment. So changes need to be made. I'd rather spend my money to just fill in at practices.
First off, I wish I'd been able to play with you guys! Missing tournaments sucks.

Second, I completely understand the frustration tournaments pose if we don't feel like we're prepared. If our practice amount isn't sufficent then it's hard to justify spending the $$ on a tournament when we could play 2-3 times as much paintball while practicing. Don't underestimate how much the game improves with refs, however. We all know how ugly practices can get.

I suggest this: we continue talking about how to get the most affordable practice paint we can and we turn the savings into more practices. In my opinion that approach outweighs any team-fund building or tournament preparation or participation because it will pave the road for those things. It really is an investment in anything we want to do beyond the Northwest. A solid team foundation is built on the back of consistent, intentional _team_ practices.

Enough from me... .

Ball over the net I'm guessing?! Ouch -- glad she's all right!

hey guys..... just trolling in your thread here....
While i wasnt at the event, ive been paying attention when you come down to Dhp. While i wouldnt say you played scared i will say you guys do hesistate. potato vs. potatoe. youve all been around a while im guessing and played together for a bit, but trust is ongoing process. Ive had the pleasure of playing ball with corey field for 12 years theres not a player alive i trust more. but we work on playing together everytime we step on the field.

To gauge success of the franchise off of one tournament can be a self defeating venture. look for the 1st down not nec. a home run, and build off those. Take my words for what they are worth. feel free to hit me up on here or DHP.

Hope to see you guys soon,

TFlo

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement! Hope to get to play more with you dudes.

One more thing -- found this link to a written summary of some of the points covered in the Dynasty Dysected DVD. Not the last word on paintball fundamentals, of course, but a maybe a good starting point for people who haven't seen the DVD already.

Joel. You bring good things to the thread. Just takes people a couple of days to digest them.
