    Hi guys and gals.

    Just wonder who is you favourite pro team and why?

    I always used to get a kick out of watching Dynasty playing!

    Same, love Dynasty and spent a while chatting with Ryan on a few occasions over here at Mills- top bloke, although him and Ollie were a bit weirded out when my girlfriend told her our pet rats are named after them...

    Yea always a soft spot for Dynasty. I remember the first Euro event they played as such young kids, but MAN could they play! True pioneers!

    In 2003, my team placed 4th Pro at Amsterdam after the biggest effort we ever made. The whole team was using Xmags on warp feeds, and we found ourselves a few times over the weekend chatting to the Dynabots, who pretty much were not interested in talking about themselves, they just wanted to see the Xmags and how the warp feed felt in hand. We never got to play them that event, but in their acceptance speech, they pointed us out and said "thats the team we really wanted to play" which made my year :)

    I always thought they were professional, fun and really really good at what they did.

    Except when they tried to sandbag...and you smoked em. Then they'd pitch a fit! "ref ref they have Rick from the Ironmen!!!" That was in 2000 though, they got pretty mature over the years, I always want them to do well.

    Fav pro team in NXL? Dynasty
    Fav pro team in the Mills? Scorpions Milano, because I like to hang out with Max, and loved Joy back in the day.

    Should add, I also love Tontons, as does my girlfriend - best purely European team, and one of the few (in recent times) to cut it cross channel (we'll ignore the gun issues and early layouts eh?)
    My fiancée is also a massive Heat fan - we got to chat to them a bit at campaign and her birthday present this year was a signed Heat Jersey and Axels game worn TT jersey. We also have a signed Greenspan Tshirt - all going on display in our spare room (I am lucky to have a brilliant fiancée - she loves paintball and fishing!)

    We've all "pitched a fit" or two in our time. I've certainly been a grade A tit on many occasions. But then I was also trying to win stuff.

    Being at the top of your sport, nearly always means someone thinks you have an ego.

    I've chatted with most of them on and off over the years, they have always stopped to chat, that and I've seen Lang pull off some moves I doubt anyone will ever see again. The guy was beyond genius.
