At the end of the day for whatever the reason my be 187 folded up and died. The Dallas cowboys dont pick up players from the Ravens then change the name to the dallas ravenboys. A LOT of different people made huge contributions to get Revo to pro and help keep it there and changing the name is just ****ting on all of those people that have come before. 187 crew was an awesome team but it's gone and Revo should be left the way it was.

What's really rad is that the team is going to do what they want to regardless of our opinion on the matter or not. Why waste the energy? Let their guns keep doing the talking.

They should just incorporate both team names. Something along the lines of 187 Revo. Would help keep both team legacies alive.

Regardless, the team name doesn't mean the players skills and abilities will change so I am looking forward to seeing if they can improve on what they have been doing the last few years. Hopefully they can pull a win next season.

I spoke too early on this one. The name change might not happen after all.

Explain? They made a post on social media about the name change and started selling limited edition commemorative Revo jerseys.

well...Turns out the league has a name change fee. I believe NRG Elite/Boom and Columbus LVL/PCK had to pay it too. Seeing how we're not really merging or changing ownership per say we have decided that spending the extra 5 large wasn't in the cards.

we're disappointed, but it is what it is.

Sorry Dave. I know the name change was all in fun, but I was looking forward to the return of 187. I hope the branding on the new jerseys isn't too confusing...

lmao what!?! They want ****ing $5000 to allow a team that pays them $40k a year to change their name?

You would think after someone like yourself has supported their league for half a decade they would just let you change it in good faith.

I can see both sides of the argument - but not the $5K. There are costs that the league will incur if we were to change our name. All their graphics/banners/etc will need to be changed and reproduced. There is a cost associated with those changes. I think it's fair if they charge us for those costs and maybe a slight "inconvenience fee" for their time/trouble. But in no world do I see that as being $5K.

Their company, their rules. We've made our decision based on what we now know.

I am pro-187 crew on this because that's provably not an actual impact for the NXL.

They have to change them anyways to accommodate AC: Diesel moving up, and the other teams whom are merged. All your doing is changing back to a previous name. Of which, they already have a graphic for that. They are not recreating the wheel, they are only replacing one logo with one they already have. Which again, they already have to do this work anyways because of promotion/relegation. Swapping another logo while already there doesn't take any time at all. Certainly not enough to even remotely justify a $5,000 price tag.

Unfortunately it's their playground so they just do whatever they want.

they shouldn't be making banners for the 2020 season yet anyway until all the teams are signed up and paid. Who knows hat could happen before the first event!

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.
