Sad day for paintball

I just recieved notice from Magued on Face Book that JOY is calling it quits after 15 years.

"We will end it now as most of the guys feel it's time. It have been the best time of our lives and soo glad and proud to have been part of paintball.

What Im most proud of is that the team have keept together from day one. Not 1 player in the 15 year history of the teamhave left Joy for another team.
And therefor it's just right that we end it together." -Magued Idris

A big thank you from this player. You made me want to be the best I could be. I'm glad I got the chance to meet you guys in Kansas City. Joy Division will be missed by many.

You guys were a beacon for the international game and will be very much missed. You proved that a team from anywhere in the world can compete at the top level if they stick together and train hard.

Paintball will be much less without leopard spots.

Thanks!

For the kind words, its been a pleasure being part of paintball with you guys,
The team is really moved by the overwhelming kind respons from all over the world. And it feels like we did something right reading all those praises

Sebban and Karl will play with the local Mash team at least a year or 2 more.
Max is not sure, but hes talking about doing little maxes with hes girlfriend ( witch you would understand if you meet her! )
Mellis is done and Storckenfeldt is done. Knut is moving back to Norway and might play some more but he have big plans with hes naprapathy carrier.
And for me I retired last year but are still involved thru my Aball, so I will be at events sometimes with APS.

The team might do some promotion for the new Angel in 2011 and Im sure APS will do one last Joy Edition when the ARK arrive

Thank you!

From my blog:

Quote:
So it's official, Joy Division have decided to hang up their Angels and leave the sport. This is huge.

Joy Division were no ordinary pro team. They wore leopard print gear that most would laugh at until they couldn't see for the paint on their gogs. Some members were real life Zoolanders, travelling the world to model for Hugo Boss and Versace between events. Beyond that, they were the guys who proved to the world that a few friends with the right drive and passion can take on the American professional circuits and win. They proved to the world that you don't have to be an American to do that, or have a big league in your home country. They showed us that you don't need big money backing to beat the best in the game.

From Siberia to New Zealand they have been an inspiration - it was a photo of them on the wall of a shed that got me into paintball. They were ambassadors of the international name like no team before or after, second only to the Russians in terms of overall impact but perhaps more impressive for being entirely self made and for staying together as a team for a solid 15 years.

They gave us more than just inspiration. Reball was instrumental in their rise as it allowed them to train for cheap, helping teams all over the world reach a high level of play without going broke. The leopard print is up there as one of the most recognizable uniforms in the history of the sport.

So as they bow out after their 15 year run let's not forget them. They represent the best this sport has to offer.
