The rumor is the Jackson brothers were fatigued with how there was a lack of consistent attackers to place around them, and they were tired of getting close but never winning. The other part to the rumor is that the players were tired of the Jackson brothers running everything and being the final voice on all team matters and identity.
I agree. I’m definitely a fan of the team and I feel like they a lot of potential. The execution this event was bad though. They’d make great moves and then just throw it away it seems. They are a lot better than what the scores show. You could see there frustration at times too and it really seemed to get them down. I hope they rebound and kill it next event.

I didn’t hear a whole lot about where they went. I think the Jackson’s went to Impact right? I know another went to Diesel.
5 finals appearances and zero 1st places can be extremely fatiguing. GP can bring up a bunch of rookies and turn them into a bunch of silver medalists, but he can’t get them gold for ****

Haha yep. Heart says Thunder. Logic says Impact.
But gotta give credit to the new Thunder roster. Good attackers, good anchors, hitting the layout correctly, no major mistakes, coaching on point, the whole camp seems to be in zen mode. This could be their moment. Exciting to think about it. Corey and Adam are legit on fire this event too.

Derp derp thinking out loud moment..
Does this seem like the Canadian owner ( Bart is his name? ) just essentially made/paid an American team, or fronted the money for one? Coach and three of the players are from California, yeah? Nick, Matt, and Kyle ( now lives in Cali ), those guys are not from Cali, afaik. Where’s the Cornell guy from?

What am I trying to say? Nothing... but I guess if Bart ever left the picture and since a bunch of these guys already live in Cali, wouldn’t it make sense to have another Powerhouse California team based on all that mega talent? Like would these guys ever want to start their own team, ( Baines coaching of course )? Or is that pretty much the Golden State Kings?

Btw, not trying to diss the Canadian athletes on Impact, they are completely legit. When they join the picture they are definitely even a better team.

I donít think dynasty had a full team practice until the middle of April. Blake is injured, Ryan is sidelined and rusty and dalton arenít there. Honestly That team needs to rebuild with younger guys, I think they used what ever left they had in the gas tank at World Cup last year, because with Ryan injured, blake and marcelos bad knees, yosh and Alex stepping in arenít cutting it, they hardly play anymore.

Impact looks phenomenal, look for them to win the event. Looks like buying all the golden barrel winners is going to pay off for them. Iíll get my puke bucket ready, I think weíre in for a nauseating year.
Who's coaching Dynasty?

They lost A-Rod who straight put the team on his back in Vegas and now they don't have Todd coaching anymore.

They also have a couple of rookies, who are playing great, but are being coached by a chick who couldn't even play D2.

Not really sure what the **** is going on in that organization right now.

Impact unsurprisingly to the finals. Infamous and RL is a very close game.

Congrats to infamous on making their first finals appearance since 2016, and congrats to “Edmonton” impact on winning the event and the series title for 2021!

Impact wins off several solid points from Mouse and some unfortunate penalties on the Infamous side.

Iím definitely going to piss people off by saying this, but Thomas Taylor has gotta be the biggest choke artist Iíve ever seen step foot on to the field. Literally cost them the entire match. Iíve seen this guy get penalties so many times now in crucial/clutch situations.

I agree. He is definitely a double edge sword. He is willing to take risk when they need to be taken which is great to have someone who can do that, but he also takes a lot of risks that don't need to be taken and costs the team points that they should win.

Infamous is going to be super motivated to run that back at the next event.

Impact looked great. Mouse was stupendous the whole event. Matt Jackson was the right decision to bring on. I think the question is, how many events will they win this year?

Little bit of sexist undetones there?

She has been coaching for quite a while and learned directly from Todd, and Shane Pestana over the year, so Im sure she has quite the knowledge base. Bill Belichick never played in the NFL does that mean he cant coach? You dont need to have played pro in a sport to be an effective coach.

She coached a roster that was overmatched at most time, pretty well, all things considered.

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.
