Ok, so some star players left and are rejoining. That's cool, they still have missed out on years of playing with the team and I guarantee you they have changed something in the way they play that they will need to pick up on. As for the top 2 proclamation....well...

Is it so unbelievable for us to place top two considering we placed third at World Cup and only lost to the the teams that placed 1st and 2nd? One of which was in overtime. You guys crack me up.

We are excited to have Paul with the team and looking forward to seeing everyone in Dallas.

You guys had a real return to form in 2012. I look forward to seeing you guys take it to the next level.

you cant compare a superstar team to this xfactor team, these guys have played together forever with the exception of billy, and infamous had a rookie coach in todd who is now looking like an allstar coach.

Seriously? I think they'll be real strong this year. Dave, Justin and Mouse weren't their core guys. I am interested to see how the coaching change up affects them though.

That's what I am interested in seeing. Will X-factor look more like Damage and Damage more like Ironmen or will they kinda keep their own swagger and make minor tweaks.

Being a coach walking into an established team like either one of these must be quite intense, for the players and coach.

i know Paul was able to give the core players like Holliday, Propst, Edwards' carte blanche on the field because of their experience. Of course they still had to follow game plan of "x" but arriving to "x" is often left up to the players themselves.

hopefully if it is SK, he'll recognize that and not overpower the players and let their style be main factor. I'm not worried about Damage. They will have to make some adjustments, but hopefully they'll get straight to it.

Core or not those players still all have to be replaced with new ones that don't have any chemistry with the team yet. When i saw that some of the their players were leaving i thought it might help them in the long run with them returning to a more core like roster with potentially better chemistry than last year.However, this coaching change is huge as Paul was definitely part of that core. Maybe they will prove me wrong but i think they will be significantly worse this year. looks like everyone is getting better except them.

You realize your argument is counter-intuitive when it comes to Mouse. He only played one event with them. And who is being replaced aside from Paul?

I think their only pickup is Brian Smith and he played with Damage for years (longer than any of the three players who left.)

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.
