New England Hurricanes are done, players go to Avalanche, Jeff Stein "retires"

Jeff announced he was stepping down from the Hurricanes today and the team was dissolving. He's been a part of the national paintball scene now for a long time and we've always appreciated his wisdom and even occasionally his wit. We are sad to see him go.

The Hurricane forum will be closing and moving into the Former Pro Team area.

Remnants of the Hurricanes plan to merge with Avalanche and go forward under that name.

And with that, the end.

To all the people who came to this forum to read and contribute to our conversations thank you. I have enjoyed having my own little soapbox, and I hope people enjoyed reading it. I always took pride in the level of intelligence displayed in our forum I often bragged it was the smartest place on PbNation. I dont know if it had any positive impact on the sport in NE or anywhere else. I used to think so, Im not so sure anymore. But at least it was fun while it lasted.

To all our fans over the years, all our sponsors, the fields who hosted us, the teams who practiced us and especially the players who represented the team thank you.

Makes sense now why LIFT picked up a few of the local 'Canes guys. Sad to see them go but wishing the best of luck to all the players

This is sad to hear, but all good things eventually do come to an end. Nobody will ever forget the Hurricanes though, especially us New Englanders. Best of luck to rest of the 'Canes guys in their future paintball endeavors.

Well there goes my favorite pro team, but also shows you how much attention I put into pro sports as well, I'd rather play than watch. Very unfortunate to hear, I hope the best for everyone

it seems like a lot of pro teams are having trouble... I wonder if its because they cant afford to play in two leagues? .....hmmm I wonder if the solution to this is to only have one league instead of two....

for two leagues

I never cared for the Hurricanes/New England players, but they did have some pretty nice looking guns. My favorite Ego I've owned so far is the canes SL74. Shame they won't be making any more.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
