Its no different from Nicky doing the throat cut, to archie pounding his chest, to federov using his signature move. In my personal opinion i think these types of celebrations is what gives every player their own identity.
Bruh, It is a cringe-thing because its essentially celebrating when they arent really a consistent winning team yet.

Archie can pound his chest because he is the best player on Earth. Nicky could do the throat cut and yell night night sucka, because there was a period he was one of the best players on Earth on one of the best teams ever.

Dude does that hopper dump every ****ing point it seems like. It is like when you see a backup NFL player get a sack in garbage time and dance around as his team is losing by multiple scores. I mean act like you got a kill before.

Its great marketing for himself and the team as a brand though. Hopefully this year he is doing it as they smash and roll teams.

Not sure where Scotty is going to play this season but wish him the best of luck wherever he lands.

On the loader dump: obviously itís my teammate doing it so I think itís cool. Pat Kraft has the utmost respect for the game and veteran players in the league. We understand when the time and place is to do things to celebrate. We also know that the league had gotten a little stale so bringing a little bit of an attitude to the field was needed and what we had been doing since we started the team 6 years ago.

As for us being consistent, we are getting there. We are a second year pro team. Our first season in the pro division we made Sunday twice and had a 8-12 record with a good win beating X Factor. Our second season we were 9-11 with wins over AC Dallas and Russian Legion. Nobody is saying this is anything special but we are always striving to be better and hopefully this season we will be more consistent and playing on sundays more then we have in the past.

I was fortunate enough to be assigned to Pats team at the recent Boston combine. After we beat Marcello Margotts team in red zone, Pat and a few guys on our team loader dumped then Pat gathered us around and pretty much said when we are on the field bring the attitude and energy, but once the masks come off and the match is over, show the other team respect. After the red zone game we all shook hands and moved onto the next drill.

So, in my opinion, I like the loader dump. If anything it gives spectators something to talk or laugh about. Looking forward to seeing NYX improve their game this season.

The difference is the other guys you mentioned celebrate winning matches, and these guys celebrate winning individual points like clowns and then lose the match. Literally the only reason this team is talked about at all is because they dump their hoppers, otherwise they'd just be another average bottom tier pro team that goes 2-2 or 1-3 every event.

Pro div should have 8-12 max.....the bottom dwellers and consistent non-sunday teams, should be playing SP. This dilutes the word Pro with regards to the NXL. But hey, Loader dump....right up there with Ollies finger to the sky and nickys throat slice

If you have 8-12 teams, would 6 move onto Sunday? You'd rarely see anyone besides the regulars into Sunday.

20 teams allows for upsets, without the sponsorship angst of champs/challengers relegation. As spectators, we'll typically see top teams run riskier game plans Friday/Sat with a lower tier team -- instead of playing conservative, no-mistake ball throughout the entire weekend.

As long as you're not thin-skinned, the loader dump is hilarious.

Correct, I only want to watch the best professional teams/players in the world. As for the loader dump, let him do his thing...im just saying the loader dump doesnt make NYX a top tier team worth watching, now for a sideshow running commentary of those dudes in between a Legion/Heat match...absolutely

HK aesthetics and apparel without having to shoot a Pinocchio? That's some dream sponsorship right there. NYX has lots of eyes on them which makes the squad a good team to invest sponsorship dollars towards.

EXACTLY MY POINT I WAS TRYING TO MAKE! Everyone has their own celebration which makes them there own individual. If you don't get pumped or celebrate after making a good play then idk why your even playing any sport.

Another example: Every time a guy in the MLB hits a home run he does the bat flip and rounds the bases. Not just Big Papi, or Mike trout but every guy does it. Even in the lower divisions.

Gives the audience a show and shows pride that you care about accomplishing a goal no matter how small or big it might be.

So....I act like ita not my first time hitting a home run or pulling off a 1 v 3 and go about my business without banging my chest or dumping my loader and I don’t care?

Seems a little one sided

Not trying to start anything or be derogatory

Passion or showmanship? I think most of us that play tournament paintball have a lot of passion.

Actually they don't unless they are trying to be disrespectful. Bat flips often cause baseball "fights" aka 50 dudes mosh pitting lol

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.
