TonTons are not attending PSP World Cup (TonTons speak out in the thread)

As things stand right now, the Ton Tons are not attending the PSP World Cup. They don't even have plane tickets yet. We just heard it from one of the other PSP Pro teams as well as Matty and even the team itself.

This likely means they likely won't be invited back for 2014 for either of the Pro divisions. However, I am not aware of any rule which details what happens if a team misses a single event. The general thinking is that the team forfeits their locked Pro spot but again, I am personally unaware of any rule that spells this out.

We'll add more soon as soon as either side wants an official comment posted. In the meantime, we honestly hope the Ton Tons find the means to get it done and actually come and redeem themselves.

The team is very disappointed .We have put a lot of efforts and money this year to play the PSP and we feel frustrated.
I heard Matt Marshall to speak about a possible redemption by competing in Orlando but we just did in Paris Chantilly by finishing 2nd of the event and winning the Millennium series in CPL front of teams like Art Chaos, Edmonton Impact, Houston Heat, Los Angeles Infamous, London Nexus, Polars Bears, Frankfurt Syndicate..
On the top of that we are EPBF European Champions for a 2nd time in a row and accessory French Champions as well.
Regarding the PSP sanction after the riverside incident, we took note of it but we can not accept it.
We believe we have been strongly already penalized at the event by not been able to play the Challenger final. We lost money and our spot in the pro category. We will not argue about it. We are entire responsible and we have not been professional enough and we have no excuses.
But we can not accept that the PSP is considering that “one or more members of the team willfully took the field with intention of playing the game while knowing their markers were in excess of allowable speed limits” especially the one which shoot at 352 fps.
By being myself with the tech guys and PSP officials, they admit the gun had an oring problem in the regulator Hyper 3.
PSP knew we had stock gun and no intention to cheat.
So we believe the sanction of unsportsmanlike behavior is disproportionate and we still dot not know why they took that sanction.
Furthermore, we are surprised by some post of important PSP-SMP board members/partners which wrote on forums some “bizarre” comments like :
“There was nothing wrong with any oring. I know because I was there and personally held the equipment, including the regulator assembly, and personally talked to the tech.”

“But I think the Tontons player entered the field knowing they were shooting hot because I spoke with the Tontons player and who said they entered the field knowing they were shooting hot.”
This lies generate for sure one important things .
Until these people apologizes for their lies, tontons will not compete in the PSP

Anyway, we had an incredible successful year and I take the opportunity to thanks all the players: Loic, Axel, Frank, Sebban, Karl, sushi, Seb and Pascal The coach. They are incredible players. The best guys I had the pleasure to play with the best possible spirit.
I also would like to thanks ours sponsors: DYE, Projet K, Supairball, Virtue, Safer and Xpaint
Fabrice Colombo alias Tavarez

*some sponsors did not fulfill their engagement and we are running out of cash

Loic Voulot (the Ton Tons player who shot 352 on the field against Aftershock) also made an unofficial statement here: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...4#post79675744

Really? Not happy with the bad press after the last event or not enough players able to travel to compete?

If this is true does that mean the psp will invite another team up to fill the spot for World Cup?

I wonder what they will do to fill the spot in the challengers Division?

Need to read the rules book to see if there is any provision for a no show team.

They were. They clearly deserved to be there and I honestly wish they were still competing. I enjoyed watching them and wanted to see them prove themselves at Cup.

They were disqualified at WCO and didn't make the top two anyway, so they would have been playing in the Challenger's Division at Cup.

I am not sure if there is time to find a qualified team to step up. Hopefully we'll hear from the PSP soon about the plan.

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.
