Outside of the Atlanta Storm, I don't see any quality efforts by teams every weekend. Are we all playing for 2nd in the World or do we really plan on getting it together. I know any team can be beat, including the Storm on any good day. I just wander at times, how many teams are good or did they just have a good tournament. This goes out to all teams that feel you can really win the World Championship. Good Luck.
P.S. My Top 5
2)Class Act/Tanel Easton
4)St. Louis Stars
In my opinion it boils down to being consistant. Atl Storm has a very good defense and can hit the ball, they are the most consistant and find ways to win when they are not playing at the top of their game. Thats can be attributed to good coaching and players that know their role. There are teams with just as much talent, but talent alone does not win you the championship. So until teams gain their winning mentality (KNOWING you can win every game, not HOPING) and consistancy, we are all playing for 2nd place...
Well said. There are many other good teams out there that I haven't seen but I'm sure they are sitting back saying, "what about us." Until you show you can play with the best teams out there, keep donating to the cause.
1ST OF ALL,WITH NO DISRESPECT 2 MY HOME BOI'S,BUT EASTSIDE WOULD NEVER BE RANKED IN FRONT OF THE STARS.2ND,I WISH YALL WOULD GET OFF THE STORMS NUTTS,BECAUSE YOU HAVE 2 REALIZE A COUPLE THINGS.(1) THE STORM WILL NEVER LEAVE TOWN WITH OUT BEING FULLY LOADED,UNLIKE MANY OTHER TEAMS(STL STARS)HAVE YET DIS YEAR BEEN CLOSE 2 BEEN FULLY LOADED,AND I'M SURE MANY OTHER TEAMS.(2) THE STORM 2 MY KNOLEDGE ALWAYS COME OUT HOT,AND KOOL OFF AT THE END OF AUGUST,AND 1ST OF SEPTEMBER,NO AFFENCE 2 THE STORM.(3)BESIDES THE ISSUE ABOUT GRAYSTONE,I PERSONALLY THINK THE STORM BACKED OUT OF NAP-TOWN,BECAUSE THEY WONT BE FULLY LOADED.(4) DO I REALLY HAVE 2 CONTINUE,CUASE I CAN.(I'M NOT HARD 2 FIND)THE TRUTH-99,PEACE.
TRUTH, You just make sure you show up to Naptown this weekend.
why wouldn't you want to go to a tournament fully loaded? we were also considering nap-town, but had some key players that couldn't make it and decided to back out (one being our pitcher)...me, personally i love the challenge of playing a competitive team, weather that be greystone or whoever, but i would also like to do it with our best on the field..
I'LL BE THERE #17,AND #14 AIR MAC,THAT MY POINT,DONT JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON DATS LOADED,FILL OUT THE OTHER LOADED TEAMS 1ST,THEN JUDGE.
because truth is you are on graystone's bandwagon..and guess what if storm or class act dont win the world,you will have them both in your class for another year..ha!ha! so i know you hope they win the world..p.s.learn how to spell.
1ST OF ALL,I LOVE MY CHANCES OF WINNING THE WORLD WITH WHO I'M WIT.REMEMBER,THOSE THAT LAUGH THE LOUDEST LAUGHS LAST,IF YOU NO WHAT DAT MEAN.
as a younging in the BASA...I must say that I am disappointed in the veterans and the BASA staff...Yes money is an issue and errybody wants to win...BASA rules are rules...follow them...Greystone s/b allowed to play...most of the tournaments are open...Suggestion...BASA call a conference and govern this issue...Direction is needed or it seems that BASA will be done...No you can't make everyone happy but...if you stick by the RULES that YOU(BASA) put in place then you can govern your association...Bottom Line Teams want to play in an association where there is honesty, fairness, and competition... We love the rivalries,...WE(players) look forward to the competition...We(players) look forward to the road trips...for me this is the next best thang to gettin some...*****... ...so the muncho acts and pride needs to be put aside so we can play ball...just a young dudes perspective...
TEAM BAR-B-QUE>>>>GREYSTONE>>>>MAVERICKS>>>>T.D.M>>>AIR MAC WAS THE TOP FIVE LAST YEAR.
Truth-99, you may want to get hooked on phonics or something. Your earlier post is so ignorant sounding between your grammar and your spelling that I can barely follow it. The Storm has NEVER backed down from ANYONE. Never has, never will. Don't hate, just sit back and admire!!!!!
Now now folks. Most of us on here understands a little ebonics. Who cares if someones words are not correctly spelled. We all get the meaning.
On another note, the Atlanta Storm should never complain over a team getting in a tournament. Didn't they win back to back a few years ago. I don't think you guys are crying are you?
When she falls asleep before you do.
