Same for any other sport. You got sponsors, you can't let someone with other brand gear play in your team without getting you into trouble. I can name some teams who got ditched that way in the Europe circuit though.
Damn thats some confident stupidity, would expect someone whos been around 10+ years to know that people like Rocky Cagnoni, Chris Lasoya, Max from Joy, etc all used to be individually sponsored. It was common back in the NPPL days.

Nowadays you won't see that happening. If a pro is playing in Europe or Australia though, you might catch them with a random gun in their hand. I know A-rod was shooting a Geo 3.5 in Europe last season, and pretty much every pro has to borrow a gun in Australia.

Boom. DLX is still not happy about that.

It was a different time though back then. Guys had enough star power that they could do that. Now the companies seem to have all the chips in the sponsorship game and can pretty much force players to use what they want

I see both side of it but when it comes to real sponsorship, if I'm giving you something for free, and not just one thing but thousands of dollars worth of products and social posts, you better wear/use what you're supposed to.

Absolutely, there is nothing wrong with that transaction. I was just stating back then, a player like Rocky or Pony Boy could do whatever they wanted because being apart of a team/brand was super valuable in itself so they overlooked some of the gear

Rocky and Chris may have been sponsored by WDP but they were playing for Avalanche at the time. Did Rocky ever play for any team other than Avalanche shooting an Angel? Did Chris ever shoot an Angel while playing for a Bob Long sponsored team?

RUMOR: Nick is going to Ironmen to steal back the plans for the LV2 that Todd stole from Jack Wood when he got a little too tipsy at PBE last year.

Rocky played on Brimstone and used the A4 fly platform of the angel.

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.
