any of you old timers recall these teams?
at splat action, i met up with edward, a current member of blacksheep squad, he mentions that in the 80s, he was involved with a deaf team playing tourneys in south california, team by name of The Deaf Eagles, now, i know one of the former members' son, he goes to RIT, and this piqued my interest in finding out some history of this team, since he mentioned that one tourney, TDE(the deaf eagles) played and lost against Navarone(sp?) and were all using pumps back then, which made me wonder...any of you old timers know which teams i speak of? might be looking to resurrecting the deaf eagles as a deaf pump team based out of the NW, since i have a couple deaf friends who uses pumps as well

I happen to be on Team Blacksheep as well and have played with Edward. I do not know much about the teams, but it was very cool to play paintball with a deaf person. I played with him at the Supergame. I was interested to see how he would react in certain situations, and it was a really cool experience.

Navarone was the first sponsored team and played with Line SI Bushmasters. Used to be an Line SI ad in APG "Guns of Navarone".
Andy Greenwell started the team IIRC in '85
Have a Grateful Day!
