We dont have to replace anyone that left the team. All of our guys are prepared and in good enough shape to play every point. small roster=more play time

If I remember correctly two years ago damage won a world title w/o mouse and jrab. Granted Dave Bains is huge as far as a gun goes, but Im sure they have players that can play that role.

Found this on Paul's Blog:

Quote:
I am leaving Tampa Bay Damage and joining San Antonio X-Factor for the 2013 season. I have informed TBD of my intentions. A month ago this would not have even entered my mind but things change, including me, and in retrospect it doesn't seem so unlikely. (Nor did I ever imagine I would be a footnote in any silly season and yet--here it is.)
Last season with Damage was more of a struggle than the triumph I had almost expected and despite enough consistency to finish second in both major leagues the overall result was a disappointment because we expected better. That was followed by a long silent off season that didn't resolve itself until much later than normal. While retaining a significant role with Damage I felt things had changed irrevocably.

Within a similar time frame--the off season--doctors discovered a growth that was at first believed benign but after it was surgically removed earlier this month proved otherwise. I am presently still awaiting the results of some post op testing but I am moving forward and God willing all will be well. (It had been my intention to hold off on any public announcement until all the testing was complete so I didn't have to mention it at all but circumstances aren't keeping to my time table.)
It is amazing what sort of clarity a situation like this affords. I don't recommend it but it has led me to a new beginning.
Which brings me to X-Factor. First I want to thank Alex Martinez and the whole team for making my move possible. You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to getting started. Second I want to explain briefly why X-Factor. My evaluation is that this team has been thru the wars and retained a core of highly experienced and talented players while adding some motivated youthful talent that brings with it a new energy. They have won together and they have lost together and they have made a commitment to each other and displayed a fresh hunger to succeed. What more could anyone ask for? See y'all on the field.

Was Paul not the main person that funded the team? If so, who is going to fill that void? I'm stoked to see how xfactor plays this year. They were my favorite team to watch last year. And also, pleaseeeeeeeeeeee Archie, tell the xfactor moms to come out at Texas this year. By far the most fun and nice people to ever be around a paintball tournament.

No, the Damage organization consists of a Team Owner, who owns the team, a Head Coach who coaches, and a Team Manager who manages personnel and other aspects of the team. Richards was just the team coach.

"Wow didn't see that cominig" sorry its been said a ton of times but I had to say it!

I wonder if all these "Champion" level teams making tons of changes will wind up putting one of them into the Challengers bracket simply due to trying to get on their feet with new people? Also could kill the momentum of a top level pro team to get bumped down then have to win out of event 2 and then get back on their feet in Champs.

I would like to see 187 or Thunder sneak into the bottom of the Champs bracket in an upset type deal. You never know what the Ton Ton's are bringing either..

All I can say is this Season will be full of "wow.." moments.

out of all the teams who are stacked right now

X-Factor, Impact, Heat, Damage


one of these teams will fizzle, and one team who we are not paying attention to will gel better then anyone else and take a podium on top, could be Russian Legion, Infamous, Ironmen. This seems to happen in all sports.

Anyone else realize he left a dye flagship team for a PE. Just speculating and spreading rumors... But could this have anything to do with his blog where he is known to express his distaste for the paintball superpowers...

I visit that blog everyday. It's possible but remote. He's unhappy is all. You think it's just coincidence about his ask the coach series?

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.
