Michael Waring is going to LA Infamous.

He left AC Dallas before World Cup and played with the Jits. He is now coming back to the Pro division.

FWIW, the base rosters for each team were pulled from PBLI for Cup and cross checked against the Silly Season rosters from 2019. Of course, that might not match the "regular rotation" for every team.

Seems like a waist of money to fly in a player who gets no playing time. Also, I hardly saw Bobby aviles step out onto the field this year, I’m wondering if he’ll stick around the AC camp or go back to infamous

Mike went from the Jits to Infamous. He did not play with ac: at Cup, he left right after the awards in Chicago. Infamous should be a good fit for Mike.

Bobby did not play the last 2 events as he has been dealing with family stuff, I hope to see Bobby make it back to playing at some point.

You guys are missing a number of moves that have already taken place fyi

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.
