I'd always assumed that HK's sponsorship of a flagship team like Dynasty was more than a few bucks. Having that money available would go a long way toward being able to support another team, and every announcement has been attached to HK.

Again, all from a quicker look than I used to have time for. I wear about 12 hats at work, and that gets worse when coworkers are out.

I don't remember saying anything about Heat specifically. I was thinking more about XSV a couple times through their history, and Impact more recently. Heck, look at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, too. You can buy in talent. You can have a bunch of superstars all wear the same uniform and play the same game, and win decisively for a while. Sometimes it works out and you get a team that lasts. Sometimes you get a team that has the "A-type" people getting in each others' ways trying to be THE superstar, fighting, and having a giant blowout... and then people bolt to the next team waving a big check at them.

I hope they do well. Not trying to put down anyone's efforts, talents, or methods. The pro division is a brutal and expensive place. Nobody knows yet how it will all go. It'll be an interesting year though!
I wasn't trying to step on toes my man. We have had a lot of good talks on here over the years. I hope you're doing well and they don't add an unlucky 13th hat to you for work.

I am excited to see what Diego does with the team as he is throwing around a bunch of cash. I just wish he was only picking up Latin or Latin American players for the squad this year like he said he would do in the past.

There prob isn't enough top Latin talent to recruit for the caliber they want. At some point, you bending your rules by allowing Americans with a Latin origin last name. Then bending even further to as long as they like tacos.

Its like how Russian Legion have always had a Russian core + a few Americans, French players, or Latin players. Building a winning team is priority, then keeping it Latin / Russian / or other commonality is just a fun secondary thing.

Im not sure why this is becoming a thing, but I didn't really see where they implicitly implied they would remain an all latin american roster. They made one mention that they were proud to be the sports first pro Latin American team and not much outside of that.

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.
