    I was more pleased to rank alongside Rich Telford than I was mortified to be below Chris Lasoya but when I reluctantly factor in he was not only a better player than myself, he was also better looking according to my wife.
    Marty Bush, ex Ironman legend, had by far, the biggest ego but he had some justification for that.
    The guy was a machine when it came to eliminating opponents.
    Bob Long wasn't so much a good player as he was a great captain and personality.
    Federov was a new breed of player originating from Sergey Leontiev's factory farm of Russian players who played for the Russian Legion.
    The same can be said of Mishka - both players were absolute geniuses of the modern game whose technical abilities surpassed all others in the pro ranks at that time.
    Rich Telford is a good friend of mine and his contribution to the sport has been immense.
    He's a born leader, a man among men but those virtues do not in any way detract from his on-field abilities.
    He was real smart, he had an instinctive appreciation of the game that manifested itself in terms of his team's tactics, training and on-field management.
    Anyone who's met him or seen him play can only but admire the way he runs his teams.
    Rocky Cagnoni is a fire-cracker player and personality, everyone likes him which is pretty rare in paintball. He's one of paintball's good guys.
    As for Alex Fraige?
    His standard of play is not only phenomenal but he's remarkably consistent.
    I don't know how many times I have seen that guy play but I've never seen him have a bad game. He is one of the real time greats of our game but he was always playing under the phenomenon that was Oliver Lang and as such, Alex's skill-set was somewhat eclipsed as indeed was Ryan Greenspan's.
    JR is another one of our game's good guys. A brilliant, inspirational player who was scrupulously humble which endeared him to the vast majority of players.
    Those who weren't endeared were just plain jealous.
    Ryan Greenspan should have undoubtedly been in that top ten but I ain't giving up my place for him, fuhk that, someone else can.
    And just for the record, the only reason I got fifth place was because my mum sent in hundreds of votes - she loves her little soldier apparently.
    If you may be wondering about Ollie in first place?
    I'll be posting up an article all about him soon enough.
    He's a legend, the greatest legend our sport has ever produced - just as basketball will never see another Michael Jordan, paintball will never witness another Lang.
