Jacob Edwards quits Tampa Bay Damage over not enough playing time

Last week it was just a rumor as Jacob was selling off his Dye gear, but it was confirmed today by Byron over at Social. Jacob was one of the youngest Pros in the world when he made his pro debut a couple years ago in NPPL and then the PSP the following year. He has only played Pro for Tampa Bay Damage but we expect him to find a new Pro team in time for the Chicago PSP next month. No word on what team that might be.

Jacob's brother Jason still plays on Tampa Bay Damage and there has been nothing about him leaving the squad.

He needs to get better...That's why he sat. That's why people sit on the bench. They need to get better.

Sports 101.

Here's to hoping he finds a good home.

That kid has mad skills and an even bigger heart, one of the under rated players. He would be an awesome pickup for any team.

No I in team. Sounds like an attitude thing. If you are team player, you'd rather sit and have your team win than play and have your team fail.

When you're talking about amateur sports...absolutely. When you're talking *professional* sports (even loosely professional), the penalty for not maximizing your ability is a lot greater. There's no substitute for playing time in competitive matches. The choice to move for playing time happens *all* the time.

In the end people are in it for the fun and.... well, if you're not having fun where you're at, then go somewhere else where you can have fun doing what you do.

I predict Vicious picking him up. Maybe even going to play with his old coach on Xfactor.. Another DYE team like CEP is a good possibility.

Spoken like a true jr high athlete right there. When you spend your life dedicated to a sport and make it to the top level you never sit out. If you have a mentality that says its ok to sit on the bench you will never be great, never have the drive or heart to be great.

Anyone who's played sports beyond high school will tell you it's not always the best players on the field but often the favorites. Politics does play a part in sports and always has. Not saying that is the case here because lots of athletes think they are better than they are and that they deserve more than they do. Bottom line is a true great athlete would never be ok sitting on a bench. Even if I have to help a lesser team grow I will be on the field. Remember the saying winning isn't everything? This is what they meant, giving your all and not settling for the bench

I think it's probably hard for him because he plays on one of the best teams in the sport. I'm not saying he's not good, but you play the best on your roster if you want to win. Unfortunately he's just not the best on that team, but he could be on another.

The kid is a amazing player and I know the decision to leave his brother was probably agonizing for him. He just needs some more room to grow and shine on his own.

Everyone on that team has some serious talent so all these he needs to get better is just crap. The kid busted his *** to get to the top and wants to play you can't blame him.

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.
