First Legacy, and now LTZ.
LTZ confirmed that they’re leaving the NXL and team owner, Monroe, will be getting out of paintball.
LTZ will finish up the season with the NPPL, however.
Since this post seems really short, here’s the full post on LTZpaintball.com that PBStar so blatantly copy and pasted.
TEAM LTZâ€™s Owner made a formal announcement on Tuesday (7/17/07) and itâ€™s with a heavy heart that he has pulled the plug on his Pro X-Ball program. Citing many issues from the Teams recent finishes, to the Teams attitude as well as their efforts; it was the best decision for everyone involved said Monroe! â€œI thought long and hard about this decision and spent sometime on the phone with the Teams biggest sponsors to assure I was making the right decision for everyone involved. Correspondence was sent to the league on Tuesday evening confirming the Teams withdrawal from the NXL and apologies were sent along with it to the league officials and other Team Owners for any inconvenience this may have caused. The entire LTZ organization wishes the Pro X-Ball division and its remaining teams the best throughout the rest of the season and good luck to all of you!
As for the NPPL Super 7 Pro Teams status, they will finish out the year but it will be without Monroe leading the charge. The Team will be co-captained/managed for the last two events of 2007 by Adam Ellis and Shane Howe and they will be making all of the decisions for the Team. If you have any questions regarding the Super 7 Team please e-mail either one of these two players and they can answer your questions. Their e-mails can be found on the websites roster page and then click on their name!
What does this mean for Monroe? Right now we donâ€™t have those answers. What we do know is that paintball is out of the picture while he works on his new sponsorship programs that will reach out to many athletes (Pro and non-pro) in a wide variety of sports, as well as his motor sports programs. All of us here in the LTZ camp wish him the best in his future endeavors and we can only hope that one day he and his daughter will return to paintballâ€¦
