Dye Precision’s factory team, the Los Angeles Ironmen, one of the world’s most successful and longest running professional paintball teams, is excited to announce the signing of elite player Greg Siewers.
Entering into his 11th year as a Pro player, Greg carries with him an immeasurable amount of experience and proven ability to perform under the highest of pressure, on the game’s biggest stage. Greg has traveled the world extensively, and won numerous pro events during his tenure in the pro ranks. After leaving the Ironmen in 2008 to pursue other opportunities, Siewers has become one of the most dynamic D-side players in the league. At only 27 years old, Greg’s unique mix of youth and experience makes him an instant short term and long term solution for the Ironmen. Greg’s talent, professionalism, and commitment to being a team player will be a welcome addition to the Ironmen. Expect to see Greg where he does his best work on the D-side. Siewers joins former coach Todd Martinez, and teammates Bobby Aviles, and Mike Paxson. This familiar environment is expected to make Greg’s transition onto the Ironmen’s starting line seamless.

“The Ironmen have been a legendary team since their inception. I am proud to come back in 2017 to be a driving force behind the Ironmen shield and help bring the legendary name back on top.” – Greg Siewers

“I am more than excited for the opportunity to compete with Greg Siewers again. Not only are we adding a legitimate weapon to the arsenal, Greg is a great teammate, communicator, and professional. I can always count on Greg to bring effort, focus, and commitment to making this team successful.” ​–Todd Martinez

Ironmen Team Manager, Billy Wing had this to say about the pick up:
“Greg Siewers is an exciting addition to the Ironmen roster. Greg’s success on the field speaks for itself. He is one of the most dominant players in the game today. Greg’s professionalism and dedication to the sport is rare even in this day and age. Securing Greg was the first step in fulfilling our commitment to building a highly competitive 2017 Ironmen team. Greg’s dynamic play and refined talent will make an instant impact to the Ironmen’s performance next year. I personally am very happy to have Greg wearing the shield again, and cannot wait to watch Greg’s and the Ironmen’s success in 2017.” – Billy Wing

ABOUT DYE PRECISION: Born in 1994 with one product and an athlete’s vision, Dye Precision, founded By Dave DeHaan, has grown and evolved over the past 20+ years into an industry leading company with production, design, and manufacturing warehouse facilities on 3 continents.

DYE Precision is a sports technology driven company with a wide range of industry leading products focused in Paintball and Snow Industries. Our company is known for pushing the boundaries and for unyielding quality with both product and partnerships, and has been aggressive in diversifying our product line and creative reach.

Greg Siewers, formerly of Houston Heat, Edmonton Impact, LA Infamous, LA Ironmen, XSV, Explicit, Chicago Aftershock, Aftermath, Bushwackers, Oakland Blast, NYX (and probably other teams too) has OFFICIALLY joined the LA Ironmen.

Trustworthy sources (unlike those untrustworthy ones that say Infamous) say that Greg Siewers will indeed return to the LA Ironmen in 2017. I reached out to Greg to confirm it, but he won't release a confirmation until Christmas Eve. However, I was able to confirm it directly with Dye.

This should reunite Greg with former teammate Bobby Aviles and former coach Todd Martinez.

So what do you think? Is this a good move for Greg?

I've never heard of Gelkaps, I'll have to look into them.

Good luck Greg, I'm sure you'll do well!

I'm sure this is a shock to a lot of the paintball world. Good pickup for the Ironmen. Greg and Scott on the dorito side is going to be a great combination.

gelkaps has been around and my guess in the us in small doses, since they made paint like zing, and breach which I believe were sold by Valken under there brand when they first put paint on the market.

If he can negotiate a deal where he can afford to comfortably live on his own, save some $, get qualified for a modest car loan, and still play paintball I'd say that's a step in the right direction.

Called this in the other thread. Makes sense as Todd needs attackers. Looking forward to seeing what else the ironmen do.

Why would you post an announcement that he asked not be made until the 24th? Seems respecting Greg's wishes conflicted with OP's agenda.

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.
