2021 Silly Season Pro Paintball Off Season Moves

Here we go again! I'll use this first post initially as a template, compiling all the new news of the off-season changes going on with the Pro NXL teams and players. Remember, if we can't verify AND link it, it can't be listed!

What did we miss?

Feel free to add rumors below (BUT RUMORS MUST BE MARKED AS RUMORS!), and we'll update the first post with verified facts!

Covid19 seriously screwed with everything in the world in 2020, and paintball was no exception. With only two events happening for the NXL season, and many players making decisions based on personal health, World Cup rosters and even teams themselves were all over the place.
Players with a * by their name were not rostered with their team at World Cup!
We'll do our best to piece together what's going on going forward.

Don't be surprised if Jonny Grier and Frank Antetomaso end up back on SDA. They were just in CA playing together.

I know its a WIP but:

Jared Lackey is listed incorrectly on the NYX Roster. He hasn't played with them in 2020, he has been on NRG for the whole season.

Rumor: Josh Pike retiring. I think it was mentioned on the WC webcast. He was done after Vegas but came back to play Cup to see out the strange season with his crew. I don't remember for sure, but that's what I recall.

Wow, I don’t know why anyone would leave A top team like Revo to go back to a rebuilding SDA that will probably be gone again within in a year or two.

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.
