What pro teams could learn from HK

Not sure if htis belings here or in the HK section so sorry MVPaintballer if its wrong.

This is not a HK support thread just what Pro teams coudl learn form them.

The hostile kids are good ballers but they are not pro. yet they have a strong following of players while many pro teasm do not get as much support as they do. Why is this? Many pro teasm do not get in adn intereact with other player(unless yuor socal) The HK does adn they have gained respect from players. They also give out TONS of free stuff. How many pro teams do you see doing that? Not many.
Just somethign i was sthinking about lately. do you agree or disagree?

Why does giving out some free stuff make them better? None of it helps your game, its all so they get their name out. And the funny thing is people pay for HK stuff a bunch of the time.

Pro teams don't need to learn anything from them. HK doesn't have respect, they just have a following. They are just a team, nothing more, nothing less. They aren't the only ones to play with heart, and they aren't the only people that help out others.

they existed before their store did.

I think alot of people suck their dick unnecessarily but I have tons of respect for the actual Hk'ers.

however i loathe the bandwagoneers.

I have a certian respect for all pro, semi-pro, etc players, but that only goes so far. I mean, they can be a great player in all, but thats not all a person is defined as, it also depends on how nice they are, etc... HK isn't special just that they market themselves, on ideal's that aren't exactly their's.
