Following up on our prior story of Kevin Rhodes ditching Tampa Bay Damage we have word that there may very well be an ULTIMATE revival in the works. Names being mentioned are both Kevin & Brice Rhodes (of course), and possibly even Robbie Pettinelli. (update: 7/13/08)
Supposedly they are going be competing in Division 1 PSP starting at World Cup. Word is they will be trying to pick up players from the once notorious (and now defunct) Gridlock/Trauma Camp; Cole hayes, Bobby French, and others.
Could this all be alot of hot air from the recently iced out Kevin Rhodes? Or, could we see the team (Ultimate) actually winning a match?
Let us know what you think in the chatbox!
UPDATE: Rumor was some self promotion / pr spin on behalf of the Rhodes brothers. Colin Hayes & Bobby French have both let us know otherwise. Thanks guys!
Kevin Rhodes, formerly of the most shut out team in professional paintball (Ultimate), has decided to make the jump from new kids on the podium, Tampa Bay Damage, to the ever so cold, Studio City Icemen.
For those unfamiliar, thats like going from zero to sub-zero. Nice work Kevin!
Note: Kevin played with the Tampa Bay Damage D1 Team (Took 3rd in Chicago)
Update: Someone posted a link on the chatbox of Kevin flaming away. Watch the drama unfold on pbnation.. [Link] (Thread has been pulled from pbnation)
Star corner Brian “BC / Meat Hammer” Cole retires from Pro Paintball. He recently landed himself a high paying job. Our sources say the Dynasty camp saw it coming. Good luck Brian!
What only remains to be answered is how this will effect Dynasty? They have definitely had a rough start this season and one can only guess how BC’s vacancy will be filled. Let us know what you think in the chatbox!
Rememeber..you heard it here first!
Internet rumors spread like wildfire over the last 24 hours about a major defection from the Dynasty camp to Ollies Ironmen. After several emails informing us of a major departure and a nasty note saying otherwise, our sources among the Ironmen finally got back to us.
“Definite No” to Yosh trading teams is the official word.
Keely Watson & the PSP sent us the final standings for Chi-Town. Most of you are probably aware who won already but we gotta give credit to the teams that are putting in the work and coming out on top. Great job to the PSP Event staff, between rain and some howling winds you guys managed to pull it together and pull off another great event.
