Veteran back player Corey Field may be resigning from the Los Angeles Ironmen this offseason. After they had a second straight year of under-performance, this could potentially be the first pillar to fall in the Ironmen camp.
Rumor has it from multiple sources that Todd Adamson is allegedly buying into the ownership of @mlkingspaintball Pro NXL Franchise and focusing on rebuilding the roster into a top contender.
Todd, a Hall of Icons inductee, would bring decades of top-level experience, a world championship pedigree, and major weight to the MLKings if he is in fact buying into the team.
Moves coming for SDA with tryout weekend looming?
Last week we broke a story that NXL professional paintball team San Diego Aftermath would be holding an invitational tryout for some of the country's best young players as they work to build the next great SoCal paintball stars. Rumors are surfacing that Grayson Gladstone, the versatile offensive player formerly of ac: Diesel, will be in attendance.
Now, while the tryout seems like a formality for such a talented young player, we will await official confirmation from owner Mike Hinman after tryouts. Mike is known for building some of the games best players and his style built on discipline and timing will greatly benefit the aggressive young Gladstone in his third pro season.
We will continue to follow this rumor and the tryout with SDA this weekend and bring updates on who makes the first cut.
From leaked emails from the NXL Commisioner, it appears the NXL is working to bring back the All Star Game at the NXL Windy City Major. The return would mark the first time an All-Star game has been played since the end of the NPPL in the early 2010s.
EDIT: The National Xball League has confirmed that the game will be happening with the following details:
-38 Player Game
-Two Team Captains, Ryan Greenspan of San Diego Dynasty and Tyler Harmon of Houston Heat
-Teams to be coached by Todd Martinez of Heat and Kevin Bredthauer of Dynasty
-Draft style team selection on GoSports
-Team Captains and Coaches cannot draft their own players in the first five rounds
Over this past weekend, a rumor has emerged that Brandon Cornell of Edmonton Impact was spotted practicing wearing HK Army gear. Is this a potential sign that Impact and HK are imminent? We will continue to talk with sources close to the story and report as more information emerges.
Our sources are telling us that Axel Gaudin, one of the best players in Europe, may be signing with Edmonton Impact for the 2022 season. Axel is an incredibly talented offensive threat and would make a big impact quickly in Edmonton. Will he sign?
Per Mark Kressin, The frenzy of moves continue for the NXL's newest organization, as the Saints sign Justin Rabackoff for 2022. Justin is one of the best closers in professional paintball, and his creative style of play will complement the rest of the Saints powerhouse offense.
After spending a season with the Moscow Red Legion, Mike Waring will be signing with Tampa Bay Damage for 2022. The combination of Waring and Jacob Edwards on the Dorito side of the field should bring some much needed offense back to the Damage playbook.
Kyle Spicka will depart Edmonton Impact to join the Latin Saints and his former Impact teammates, Alex Goldman and Alex Rodriguez, for the 2022 season.
