Need a little intro with footage from the old team...and I kept thinking...they all need like some kind of camo on them...like camo headbands for everyone.

Why does every vid of a U.S. paintball team in Europe have to include them acting like drunken idiots in public places?

And we wonder why our international image is so terrible... lol...

But I am super excited to see the Image name return to paintball.

Ok, I've been out of the paintball scene for many years now, but I don't see any relation between this team and the original Pro Image team from the 90's. Are any of the original Image players on this team, or at least coach/own it? If not, why would you use an X pro team's name for your new team name if you have no relationship with the original players? Maybe I'm missing something here, and if I am, someone please point it out to me.

Look for Rabackoff and Italia.

Is there any blessing at all from any of the Mau Mau's to this team? I mean Tommy and Richie basically made Image and I'm pretty sure they have nothing at all to do with it.

Team Owners are Richmond and Steve Rabackoff. Both of their kids are playing on the team and they wanted nothing more than a resurgence of image because it was a name that made them proud... Also.. They are Canadian so they can do what they want...

Obviously not the same team. But still great stuff! The old Image was one of my favorite teams, the Mau-mau Brothers, Lane, Ron S., Teddy K., etc... Where do they practice in Canada? Thank for sharing.

We mainly practice at mirabel paintball in Canada. A majority of the players play CXBL and psp as well.

the original image was one of my favorite teams growing up, they never went on massive winning streaks but they were a blast to watch, super aggressive, people dying everywhere, good stuff.

My first tournament I traveled to was zap am open in 98 and I got to play against one of the mau maus in 10 man, he was guesting on what I assume to be their sister / farm team. I ran at him with my 16 inch boomstick and bunkered him through about 8 feet of shrubs, blew him up, then I heard the clink of an auto cocker back block and noticed I was shot after the fact in the knee. ref pulled me and left him. I was so mad as a kid I knew it was one of the mau maus because I could see the glasses on underneath his JTs. the rest is history. lol
