Up until getting picked up by Impact for Cup, Caro was still wearing/shooting full Infamous sponsored gear at practice and WCPPL, implying perhaps that he was still with them despite not playing Vegas. Though there was never any statement about his departure?

I'd like to see Rob play somewhere, always been a fan.

Would like to see Velez around more as well. He was consistently one of the best Aftershock players. I think he would thrive in a better system.

Aftershock had some talent when they imploded but no discipline. Just listening to his podcast it wouldn't shock me to see Markowski on a roster somewhere this season.

I’ll never forget that 2015-16 season they had, where on paper they were easily one of the top 5 teams, and they only had one good event that year.

That team could have been really good with the right coach. Bruno was a great player but he wasn't a good coach. I don't know if he he was a good x's and o's coach but it sure seemed like he couldn't organize and get players in the right place to succeed.

Id find it hard to believe Pat Kraft leave NYX just due to the locality of his family that he seems super close with.

Yeah I agree. I wouldnt be suprised if Carl is wearing an LVL jersey this season. They could work with his schedule, are local, he has the connections to them already, and they desperatley need a veteran. He would be nasty as the corner/2 on the snake side for Politi

Just based on his podcast with Pando from like a month ago I'd bet $20 Carl plays with LVL at least one event this year. It also sounds like he had an offer to play for Impact at Cup but couldn't make it because of work obligations. Just listening to him he wants back in but wants the right fit. I think he could make a difference with LVL, not win an event difference but he could win them a couple games every event and make them a threat for the wildcard every weekend.

I think Carl would be a good fit for Infamous. He has connections there as well, and that team has the potential to give him a revenue stream (even if it is small).

Carl could do what Nick did for 187. Just bring knowledge into their team and bring them from the bottom to the top.

AC Dallas announces two more PB Fit players to join. 7 of the 8 rostered PB Fit players from World Cup D2 are now on AC Dallas. To think AC Diesel had to spend 3+ years in Semi Pro trying to win their spot... Not to mention, had TonTons played Vegas 2019 they probably wouldn't have.

Gonna be a rough year for ac dallas. I’m surprised John jackson is staying with them.

Truth. This team is going to be rough. They have at least 3-4 players that are basically not able to be mobile at all at the current pro level. A snake player that quit the game that last 10 years and just came back that never played pro. A bunch of young raw kids, and one or two real pros in BJ and JJ. Its going to be a brutal year.

I think Pauley will get them whipped into shape but this year is going to be rough for them, especially early. For me the biggest question is if they end up getting relegated or if it's MLK.

Id say Dallas. At least MLKings has multiple players with years of pro experience now.

I'd put my money on AC finishing ahead of MLK and others. The guys they picked up play A TON of paintball and were already at Paintball Fit every weekend playing with and against the AC camp.

Pauley has the formula and structure to plug and play. Probably won't make a Sunday but will definitely win games when they are counted out.

I feel like they’d almost be better dropping down to semi pro this season to get some wins though. I know GP can turn a D2 or even a D3 ranked player into a pro in a matter of months, but I feel like they’d get better quicker if they went to semi pro. Look at Diesel. They won 3 or 4 events in semi pro before going pro, and they had one hell of a world cup

I bet dallas still beats MLK, but my main problem with Dallas getting constantly beat up in the pro division is that guys will get frustrated and quit, and then we’ll see a repeat of aftershock and aftermath scenarios. BJ and John should just hop onto diesel and let dallas become semi pro. GP made the mistake of only having 5 or 6 players on that team the past 2 seasons anyways. They lost 3 guys and now they’re completely gutted.

Why give up a pro spot? They practice a lot of good talent every weekend, no need to play D1 for "experience".

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.
