Greg Siewers from Infamous retires from Pro paintball

Greg has said several times this would be his last year as a Pro and World Cup would be his final event.

That's what they all say...

Best of luck to Greg. I won't be surprised to see him guest in a few events over the next few years, seeing as he's still pretty young and athletic.

Greg has had a long successful run. I heard his business is hurting from his absence for paintball. Best of luck to him in his future endeavors. I got to meet and play his greg back in 2011 for the Canadian triple crown. Such a smart methodical player, grateful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best.

I gotta imagine more of this happening soon.

We've got tons of guys that played as far back as 2000.

Yeah I would imagine next season we see a huge wave of pro players retiring. The amount of guys over age 35 with 20 straight seasons of play is staggering.

That would be an interesting story. Who do you think will retire? And who should? Specifically players who have lost a step.

I don't think there are a ton of guys who have lost a step per se, I just imagine the mental and lifestyle toll of 20 years pro really weighs on you more and more each season.

I can't imagine being 40 and living that life still outside of the guys who collect a paycheck from the industry. It would be tough to start building up any sort of savings I would think.

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.
