Its gotta be someone with a halo effect to attract players.

Other option is poach 3-4 core group of players from a lower rank team and give them a full ride.

Options are slim, not looking great. Hate to see them struggle in the bottom and fold like Aftershock in the future.
Why in the world would Oliver return to paintball to coach the Ironmen?

Why in the world would Matty quit his career to be a paintball coach?

Why the heck would Bob end his enjoyable retirement to coach a team he had a personal feud with?

The Ironmen and their issues sure seems like a management issue from where Im sitting. Im too lazy to find it now but one of the interviews Todd gave after leaving to coach Heat it sure sounded to me like he got ran off. Dye has the money to buy a top notch team and coach but outside the 1 win in 2020 theyve looked lost since then.

Matty Marshall has been commenting for a few years now that Texas is the reigning Mecca of paintball. That said, I cannot say I know what The Men, or any team has to do to build a winning program. The league is incredibly competitive from the Pro division all the way down

SoCal is now the Mecca of Airsoft. Hard to blame them though considering you and like 2 friends can go airsofting for the same cost if not less than 1 person playing paintball (not counting pump or mech players who are smart with paint)

They wouldn't.

It would need to be an earth shattering thing like that to draw a halo effect to Ironmen again.

Saw on Insta that ML Kings and Uprising are DLX teams now. That does it for MacDev in pro, right?

Yup. Wonder if MacDev is getting out of the pro scene or this was a choice by both teams? Since Virtue/BK have a working relationship with DLX, this could just be a push from them to get their teams on the same platform.

No. That was later that they used Proto. Then back to JT for the custom branded Aftermath/JT jersey. Vforce later when they picked up Lasoya and went Pro in 7-man.

The Ironmen are the only team left from the Big 3. All Americans and Aftershock are both done but the 'Men live on. So far.

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.
