But I do agree it seems like they need another guy that can play any position pretty well to get back to where they were. On AC Jackson was that kind of guy.

Seems like the Ironmen's snake presence improved a good bit once Spicka left and Dynasty replaced him fairly easily.
I couldn't agree more that losing Rainey was a huge lose for Impact, i can't count how many times that guys saved a point for them. Just look what he has done for Xfactor.

Spicka, is so hit or miss.

That was a rumor form a long time. The only info that came out was during that behind the scene doc on the Russians that was shot in Russia. Basically some super wealthy banker uses RL has a tax write off

I don’t think they get paid, Malloy almost left for impact last year.

I don't know about that but I remember hearing back in the day the guy that originally started bankrolling the team owned a private bank.

It's pretty well known they do. Malloy almost leaving isn't about making money, it's about making more money. Or could be for other reasons, people switch employers/jobs all the time.

For anyone curious of their history https://redlegionclub.com/red-wave-orign/

The timeline is neat, but they do mention their first generation of players in 1995 were bank guards.

Most of them get paid to be on the team and then also all get employed at the owners businessí and live in the owners apartments/home.

They arenít stacking cash but either Malloy of Federov talked about how payment and livelihood works on RL and they said the above. I forget which.

I feel like I've made jokes to myself about Impact acquiring the top golden barrel winners before, it's just so predictable, and is consistent with Arod and now Fuzzy. Where's the art in cultivating a winning team? I suppose we'll leave that up to Dynasty or maybe now the exciting homegrown skills of Revo. However, I will never throw much shade on people making money in paintball, for those players on Impact and the organization as a whole, that's rad, and I look forward to seeing that team compete. It is exciting to think of Fuzzy having the opportunity to work with Arod, Spicka, Mouse etc, should be an entertaining first event back, and I am grateful for that.

I’m super pumped to see what Revo can do next year. They had 2 wins over Heat, a win over dynasty and a win over X factor this year. They’re ready.

Absolutely, they're so ready. The composure they've shown has been so impressive and exciting.

Rumor has it Revo is picking up Nick Slowiak, Nick Lieval, Nicky Cuba, Nicky Vegas and various other pros to become the Baltimore Nick Nacs.

I hope they at least retain the WC roster. Thomas Kim announced his free agent status for 2021, deciding not to renew his contract with the Ironmen.

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.
