Smart Parts – Miami Effect Franchise

Filed under: Allgemein — Florian @ 23:03

Am 23. Mai gab es seitens der NXL eine Pressemitteilung betreffend der Miami Effect Franchise. Heute Nacht wurde dann auch noch eine Pressemitteilung vonSmart Parts, oder besser William Gardner veröffentlicht.

Die Originalpressemitteilung:

Mr. Italia has made it clear from the beginning that the team has always been for sale. During the formation of the League, Richmond assumed ownership of Miami Effect to expedite the start of league play. (Owning a
team as well as owning the League is a conflict under NXL rules.) The other teamowners relaxed this rule to eliminate any delays in launching the league. Nowthat the NXL is poised to appear ontelevision, Richmond thought it wise to resolvethe conflict with his ownership of the League.

Mr. Gardner becomes the new owner of the Miami Effect franchise, having sold his interest in the Philadelphia Americans to his brother, Adam Gardner. Bill added, „I am very pleased with success of the NXL both as apremier paintball league as well as a valuable Hollywood property. Getting the opportunity to invest in my own team was an easy decision.“

Leading the franchise into it's future is newly appointed Head Coach, and former professional paintball player, Rowdy Macdonald. In light of the current players choosing to leave the league in order to pursue other professional tournament opportunities, Mr. Macdonald will be responsible for rebuilding the team. Rowdy added, „I am looking forward to the PSP Chicago series of games and continuing the success the team has achieved to this point in the season.
