Wow, that huge for the Saints. Looks like someone is willing to pay more than Impact, it also says the owner of the Saints wants to stay in the Pro division.
Arod is always after a bigger pay check, Spika didn't look happy last year.
If this is true, that is 2 big loses for Impact and losing Rob as well puts a little dent in Impact.

Wonder who Impact is picking up with these 3 leaving. They must have a couple guys coming on board with these 3 leaving.

I could see John Jackson joining his bro, Maybe the Molly thing could happen, be interesting to see how this unfolds.

If that happens, Impact is F--ked IMO. That leaves them with no snake guy, yes they could go back to Justin C, but he isn't no Mouse.
Yes he can get the job done, but he won't save a games like mouse can.

Also i wonder if Jrab is going to be around much this season with him becoming a fireman and missing a couple events last year because of it.

If all these rumors are true, and Impact doesn't pick up a star player or 2, they could be in trouble. To lose 3 to 4 of your star player is not going to be easy to replace, if at all.

I could actually see this happening, due to the fact they had such a hard time getting players over here last year.

Wow, just nuts.
Impact possibly losing 3 of there top guys, but its not the first time they have lost 3 or 4 guys to only come back stronger, but Unless they got something up there sleeve it could be a rough year for them.

What that leave them with -
Justin C
Brandon C
Matt
Trevor
Nick
Zack
Maybe Zane
Maybe Jrab
Maybe Spicka

Still a Ok line up, but i don't see this line up winning a tournament.
They must be pick up a couple guys

They tried for LJ Parish but X Factor snagged him. Maybe they could grab Jon Jackson but he really doesn't fill the roles of they guys who have left/rumored to be leaving. Also not sure if him and his brother will want to play together again.

That would be a bummer. RL is one of my favorite teams.

Agreed, he does not fill role of the guys who left or are rumored to be leaving.
Mind you there aren't many player out there that do.

I wonder if the team will be staying stateside for the whole tournament season. With how quickly travel restrictions change I imagine it will be difficult to keep going back and forth all season without running into issues.

Only other option that impact has is to look to the younger teams and see if they can pry away a 1 on the snake side. Wont be a mouse and other guys will have to step up but i would imagine all of the top snake guys are locked up at this point.

Agreed, If they have to go that route. it will be a long season for them.
Hearing rumors that Mouse has killed the rumor that he is going to the Saints, and is staying with Impact.
But, I also did read something from Hinman yesterday that said mouse was going to the Saints cause they offer more than Impact, But who knows till we get an official statement from either him or the team.

I know Hinman hinted that he tried to bring Mouse back the SD camp but couldn't for reasons he did not disclose. Probably not deep enough pockets.

The biggest issue with rumors is that they are rumors. The Hinman post would benefit SDA if Impact lost Mouse to a team that is not totally solid and has had time to coalesce their talent together. That benefits all of the other teams as well if the rumor is Mouse is leaving. This puts Bart on the phone to see if he has been betrayed by someone without telling him first. That was an incredibly smart play on Hinmans part to sew discord in the community and cause people to have to put out fires as they try to confirm what is actually happening.

Chaos and confusion can add a lot when it disrupts a small community of people.

I'm sure Mouse gets offers and people poking around to see if he's happy every time his contract is up

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.
