Probably the worst comparison I have ever heard haha

Hope you end up playing in the US circuits somehow. I know sometimes it may feel like its a thankless job, but I really do enjoy watching you play, regardless of whether or not you are wearing a Shock jersey. Definitely a stand up guy and an inspiration for lower divisional players. Best of luck bud

I became a fan of Aftershock, because I never saw a better group of players, that seemed to fit so well together. It was my ideal of a great team. They had hunger and they had the drive. It's sad to see some of my favourite players leave a team that hast meant so much for so many years. But like it's been discussed before, no one can blame them for wanting them to win. I'm sure, however, that good things are coming, for Nick Slowiak, Aftershock and all the other guys who left the team a few weeks ago (Drew, Chris, etc.).

Go Shock.

Care to explain? Its hard to win when your roster is changing every event. Im not saying the guys on shock are bad by no means. But when your roster is changing that much its just flat out hard to focus and practice around that.

LeBron left to another team because he was greedy, IMO. I see Slowiak's resignation more like a "I'm tired of this" kind of attitude.

But hey, I'm from Ohio. Maybe my opinion is skewed.

He gave Shock his best. Sad to see him go, but after so much change, building, and rebuilding, it's hard to not look out for yourself. Good luck, Slowiak. You're still the best.

Lebron actually took less $$$ to go to Miami, Only thing he was greedy about was trying to get some rings.

Russians lose all but one of their star players but are "still going to compete". Aftershock loses their leader but "still plans on fielding a team". Hurricanes move in to cold water and dissolve. Avalanche is kidnapped by New England. This is crazy.

Once Fraige announces he's retiring to become an interior decorator people are officially just going to start panicking.

I would like to thank all of my fans and friends who have supported me and given me encouragement my entire paintball career, you are all inspiring and are a huge reason why I have been playing paintball. I will continue to play paintball in Europe for the first time with Empire Venice. As for the PSP and NPPL…I may not be playing, I may look for a team, I might just ref…I cannot say at this point but I just want to say thanks again to everyone.
Thanks for all of your blood, sweat, and tears. I for one have enjoyed your presence on and off of the field, and respect your decision to move on, although I cannot say I am happy about it. I wish you the best and success in your endeavors. I hope you stay in Chicago, but it sounds like you have some things planned and in the works. Hope to see you on the field again.

Bruno is a great guy, energetic coach, and a great ambassador for the Aftershock program. One the practice field, it does not matter if you are a pro-player or a D5 beginner, he will give you tips and advice on how to improve your game. I only hope he stays with the program this year.

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.
