"Having played with the DBA in the past at various tournaments and at their practice field I can attest to the fact that they do indeed KICK ASS!! They have always chosen the most honest path with regard to paintball in general, even though the competition may choose not to. And while this can become frustrating at times it has never changed or altered their philosophy about the game. They have continued to improve year after year with- out compromising their honesty or integrity in any way. Unwavering determination, loyalty to one another, and the ability to never lose sight of the fact that winning by any other means than the most honest and agressive play, is not an option for the BushApes. Not now, not ever. Players who feel it's acceptable to wipe, play on after being hit, or even those who want to play to a draw, have no place on the DBA . This is the way it was when I played with them and this is the way it will always be. And that, is why the DBA kicks ass!!!"
