Featuring Eric Holland, Gabe Fletcher, Terry Tacchino & Jake Fletcher.
For far too long, the sport of paintball has been centered around the smaller player…
Bunker Sizes, Playing Gear, Game Types… all of it has been focused around the smaller player…
Well, the year is 2012 and the game has changed for good… No longer will the smaller player rule the field..
Us larger players, have taken everyone’s crap for far too long. Its time we showed them what we can really do. Its time to ram it down everyone elses throats and make them wear it…
We’re not going to take anyone’s CRAP, ANYMORE.

Last year we broke the news that the NPPL/PSP pro paintball merger was off of the table. Throughout the merger discussions, rumors circulated that the paintball manufactures were hoping to scale down the number of events in a season so that they could more effectively market paintball and support the teams competing. As you can only imagine, rolling several semi-trucks loaded with paintball gear and staff to 10 or 12 different locations is a costly endeavor.
Rumors have circulated as to what direction Empire Paintball, GI Sports, Valken, Procaps, Planet Eclipse and others were taking in the 2012 paintball season. The following press release landed in our inbox moments ago confirming Empire Paintball’s direction.

What are your thoughts on this paintball news?
San Diego Dynasty, an Empire Paintball team, is holding tryouts this weekend. We have heard that a large group of talented pro paintball players will be mixing it up. Notable mentions include Andy Horvath (Mutiny), Jason & Corey Bornstein (XSV), Josh Victorio (Cobra’s) and Rusty Glaze (LA Infamous), Jon Richardson (LA Infamous) and Sean “Crunchy” Mcdonald (former SDA/Ironmen) will be mixing it up. The word is these players are competing for one or possibly two spots on the paintball super team and only the best will make it.

You may be wondering what spots these players are looking to fill on Dynasty. ProPaintball insiders suggest that the openings are for the Xball/Race-To roster. Possibile openings on the roster may come from Dynasty players Spitts, McCormic and Mouse. According to rumors, Steven Pitts has set his sights on completing his college degree and is taking a full course load.
Another possibility comes from McCormick. Mike was missing at the teams first official practice of the season which is typically not a good sign. No word on if he will return or not this season. Another question mark sits next to Alex “Mouse” Goldman‘s name. According to sources, Mouse is considering scaling back his professional play to one league so that he can focus on work, school and his girlfriend.
Which player would you most like to see join San Diego Dynasty? Who would make the strongest addition?
