With the exception that 187 didn't play nationally at the lower levels the story line is the same - We (187) took a bunch of kids and progressed from 3-man to 7-man (NPPL) then AXBL (Old school, not the new Texas one) and finally to PSP (D2) and on to pro.

Clarification - I'm trying to sell the land the field sits on. However, we don't currently have a buyer so as long as we own the land we'll run the field.

Yes - I will be focusing on running the team and foXball - with both a New England division (potentially playing at several fields during the season) and a division out of Top Gun.

I think everyone seen the writing on the wall considering this decision. I still think it's junky though.

However, based on the "lineage" factor, when is Heat renaming themselves to All Americans?

The name change didn't come from money, it came from the players wanting to change it.

Oof... this quote makes it sound like the former 187 players joined Revo and then strong armed the name change.

I wouldn't say strong armed. All players agreed to the change.

C'mon. I still think it's junky cause it sure doesn't seem cool for a bunch of dudes from a then defunct team to join an existing team and then ask those existing players to change the name all to appease themselves.

What were some guys going to leave and Henry and Stephen had to cave on a name change to incentivize those guys into staying? If so, that's petty.

Look, all I'm saying is that apparently everyone got what they wished for they got their beloved 187 back at the sacrifice of another team. It seems all that hard work for guys that were on the Revo organization through the years gets washed away cause some guys can't let go of a team that folded. Henry and Stephen didn't join 187, these guys joined Revo.

Also, it's seems like everyone didn't give 2 s's about Revo anyways cause it seems like a bunch people didn't even bother realizes how to pronounce the name (*cough* head ref of the NXL Jason Trosen *cough*) , it's "revo" like revolution.

F it, might as well just be Upton rather than Baltimore. I wish Henry, Stephen and the rest of the dudes the best but this isn't my Baltimore team.

I guess I just don't understand the name change. 187 got stomped into irrelevance and folded while Revo grinded to the point of being a consistently competitive team and tough win for any pro squad. Just seems odd. I am surprised the NXL doesn't mind the switch. For all they talk about legitimacy, it seems weird to have major, established organizations changing their name to a former pro team.

More than likely. I'm just tossing my opinions out there as a fan. All I'm saying is it just seems like a lot of peoples hard work over the years is getting washed away.

I'm surprised by a name change too. I think it's kind of weird. They all used to joke about it.

Seems like a Henry question. At the same time, the team is very different than several years ago.

I can definitely say that no one would quit over a name (non)change.

I would be on your side about the name change too but it's up to those guys to decide why they want to change it. You can be angry for the team name changing but I think your reasoning is off.

Perception is definitely different from reality. I don't know the inner machinations of that team so my rants are from a perspective of outside trying to look in. Everything is probably sunshine and rainbows.

I'm just thinking if I were in that scenario I would be a tad salty. Also, from a fan perspective, I'm conflicted if I want to say that's truly my team. I think I would be more inclined if it were a completely new name rather than them taking on the 187 moniker.

It’s sad to see the Baltimore Revo team name go. Those guys gave everything they had to the game of paintball and still do. To see them go out like this is disheartening! We have had plenty of battles against Revo and they worked their tails off to get where they are today. To see that go down the drain hurts! As we all know, nothing last forever but we wish them all the best. It’s just upsetting to see the team name go away based on circumstance. Hopefully Revo will come back at some point and put north east on the map again!

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.
