B) beating top gun

D). All the above

Caps will take a big hit at every level from the Giants hate to say it but it will happen. Only thing helping caps is the EHF which in my opinion is better then e9.


Absolutely. It's already happening. Kids have been at practice for the past month.

Agreed!!

Re: Implosion

06 Breakers. Both levels.
Tier 1 coaches moving to Bandits elite, taking players from both levels
Elite coach talking to tier 1 players
T1 players playing in elite/players from both levels going to Bandits equals a recipe for disaster for the Breakers

Re: Implosion

06 breakers elite had a solid team a couple years ago. The turnover every year tells you that something ain't right

Re: Implosion

05 kings are a lot worse than people realize. Coach is under pressure from ownership to turn the team around and recruiting under every rock he can find.

So then isn't he just doing what every coach out there is supposed to do?

Give them a chance. New guy in front office certainly seems more involved with youth levels than TS ever was. Getting rid of some coaches that have been issues. And let's not forget, Bandits will finally be rid of WN. Putting an elite team in at 06 is a start. Don't get me wrong...probably will finish at or near the bottom but you have to start somewhere. It's all a step in the right direction

Re: Implosion

kinda hard to when the poster notes that they are building the team from the tier 1 Breakers. A bunch of those kids were 06 Bandits before until the team folded last year and you know what there record was

It all depends on how competitive they can be in the first year. If they spend the season getting beat like a rug they will not be able to recruit the following year. If they struggle early and finish strong and get anywhere near the middle of the pack they have a shot. If they finish last everyone tortured their kid for the sake of running this experiment for a second time. If they finish strong they gambled with their kids' happiness and confidence in order to help the Bandits organization. Seems like an insane move on the personal level to me but it would be awesome for the league if the Bandits can become a good reputable program. I hope it works and it seems like you guys have a few things going for you. It is a long shot though...
