Pro rosters are moving to 12.

Maybe I'm wrong but...

Isn't dave youngblood majority owner of psp? And ironmen is dye's team.
And isn't Heat the GI factory team?

Correct me if I'm wrong.

No. Rosters will go to 12. I'd be more worried about the other rule changes (like penalty boxes) you guys will need to adapt to.

What other differences are there between the rules for Pro and D1?

I wonder if there will be any type if small prizes for the challengers division. I am assuming the only prize would be that you can move up to champions the next event but I am curious.

Well you have to remember the PSP wants to entice some D1, Millenium and NPPL teams into the new Challenger division.

I've been wondering that too. How do prizes work for the Challengers division?

some people keep wanting to downplay the lower tier. I just dont get it, there has been some people crying for a few years about not winning because of having to play the top ranked teams. You would think this gives them a more level playing field. It is harder to play pro, more than what people think. Plus its not just the players on the field but the coaching too, that can hold some teams back. I just think we are going to miss out on some exciting matches on the second field. I hope that PBA can put at least 2 cameras on that field for highlight footage and score updates between main field matches. They still are pro bracket and are relevant.

True

We at G.I. Sportz sponsor Professional teams but we do not own any of them that play in the PSP Series.

G.I. Sportz is also a sponsor of the PSP not an owner of the league.

Just pulled up the bottom two teams at every event for the last two seasons. Maybe raehl can get the other seasons bottom teams up for us to see?


Bottom two from each event
Texas
Vicious
Aftershock

Phx
Cep

Chicago

2011
Texas
Aftershock

Jersey
Cep
Infamous

World Cup

Uprising

Infamous is a big surprise there. In that year Infamous would theoretically be playing cup in the challengers division.

would that be true if they go by series points for cup, and Infamous placed in top 3 all the other events??? Still too many questions and variables till they work out or come out with all the rules.

If you have a bad event down you go. Why sugar coat it. Yesterday we all talked about this in San Antoino and in the end it was just play well and you do not have to be concerned. Playing Pro is about being one of the best teams in the world not having a silver spoon stuck in your mouth.

Trust me this is a big part of my job and with 4 or 5 Pro teams I have to think about how this can work out for the teams we sponsor and in the long run this is going to end up having the best of the best fighting it out at each event.

ReplyNews Ups


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.
