Thread of the Week: If you could play on any NE team

Of all time. The NE Express in the mid 90's, the MOB in 1999, the White Mice or WildCards in 1995, Section 8, NEH in 2008, Thunderstorm, the Plague in 1992, the Wild Geese, the PLA...

If you could magically go back in time and play with any team in the history of New England paintball, who would you play with and why?

(GZ doesn't count).

Hurricanes of 2008. The reason being is it was a younger successful team unlike other NE teams in the past. They started to become a 7 man power house, and had tons of potential in the X-ball format which I truly love to play. The players all seemed to mesh real well together. Also quite frankly I played my first tournament in 04' so I don't know a ton of other teams from back in the day to choose from. My second choice would be 187 Crew, because I believe in how they play as a team and their work ethic. My third choice would be NEAA, because they went from being a nobody team to being a real threat in the Xball scene of new england the past year or so.

3rd choice Splatz ESG in 07, a Maine team with lots of potential and one of the best teams out of Maine in a long time. My 2nd choice would be Crisis in 09 to see what went wrong with the resources and the talent and support they had first hand. My 1st choice would be the Canes in their first pro event, to see what struggles the team went through in their rookie year being pro.

Sadly I think 90 percent of the kids that will read this have never even heard of the teams that you just listed..... How come you didn't list team green?

I thought of that after I posted it.

The lack of history in our sport is a shame.

Team Green didn't really rate. What would the draw be?

Thats what I'm thinking. Granted there have still been decent teams at the regional level in new england that the younger generations such as myself know of.

Same would be true of "name the best feeder teams in NE history" with the PnL kids, Wildside, Adrenaline Junkies... That could be a good thread, if people had context.

Going way back, Wild Geese.

Then maybe Formula, Eclipse, Adreline junkies, Swerve, NEX, True colors, Wild Aces. ( I miss Necco's flipping out. )

Recently 187, NEh, and that cool new team Nitro.

Rather be on a successful "feeder" team from 03-05 than on some pro team in the 90's. That's just me though

The only team I've ever heard of in your original post is NEH

The team I'd want to play for, they won D1 World Cup in 04.

Yeah, I don't know any of those older teams aside from the having heard the names before. For a Pro team I'd go with '08 Canes. I'd have liked to have played with the Armageddon guys back in 07/08.

I agree with Twan. That team has no place here. It was a very expensive lesson in how not to run a paintball team.
