You are mistaken. Ground Zero was pro prior to Gold and Black melding to form NYX.

Im paraphrasing from another post

"Alot of the kids have no finals experience, theres no pressure to win"

If youre playing in the NXL, theres pressure to win. For a normal game, i watched the time ran out and the game was tied, and one of the more experienced players (who died trying to win the game) yelled at two of the younger players who let the time run out and lose.

the outburst was essentially "Grow some ****ing sack, We dont get paid **** for a tie." and basically he was pissed about how the game was essentially a loss.

you dont get to that level by not caring about winning and the sponsors arent gonna put you up without pressuring you to win, otherwise your spot on the roster isnt going to be yours for very long. That said, youre right, unless the NXL teams are sporting some of their older players, or players whose fundamentals are based in tournament style play (chances are if theyre playing pro, they are, and they were pretty good at it), theyll have trouble against teams that play regularly in finals and are used to the circumstances.

while im discussing the chances of an NXL team placing, im thinking of Aftershock (Shock in Denver). so far theyve won their first 4 prelims with high 90's scores, sunday will be the real test for all of those who make it.

Just wanted to check something on the scoreboard. Did SC Ironmen or LA Ironmen whatever one you want to call them, enter Denver as "the men"? I see the scores online and thats what I am guessing.
