It should not be a surprise to anyone that everyone on tour is friendly with everyone else. Sponsored teams aren't cliques that shun people who don't throw the same plastic. They all hang out with one another, regardless of "team". Paige hanging out and playing badminton with Sexton (and others) is only evidence that they were once in the same place at the same time.
Hopefully this is true, but Ive read some posts on Facebook from pros complaining about other pros on a same team that, when carded together, gang up and make calls as a group to the disadvantage of the pro on a different team. If its 3 against 1, the 1 can get completely steamrolled.

It must be MUCH more money or her own line of disc ( with Discraft )
She will be on her 4th or 5th sponsor (for some reason i think millenium was in there prior to discraft but i am not positive) in not all that many years... don't know why you would think that.

I can see that. Henna announcement video with Future of FPO title could easily have other FPO players in it. However, the length coinciding 1:1 with the one below it has me pretty well convinced the picture is a fake.

I didn't mean to suggest that some players aren't closer to each other than others, and perhaps team affiliation can play a role. I was more making the point that off the course, it's not a matter of DD players hanging with DD players, Innova with Innova, etc. Lots of people hang out together, even travel/tour together, irrespective of team affiliations. So the idea of Paige, while still on Team DD, hanging out at the same place (party?) as Sexton, a member of Team Innova, isn't foreign and suggestive of anyone changing teams or displaying any sort of disloyalty.

To me it always felt like she went back to DD to be with her "DD family" . .not for the money..to be around friends ment more than money. . so what changed?

But im probably wrong

Plus there are 27k people subscribed to Innova, a good number of which I am sure have notifications, and it seems that only one person (wherever this screenshot came from) saw this video notification? Seems unlikely.

Plus I feel like if Innova was announcing Paige, they wouldn't have her in a DD hat in their video, but I could be wrong.

What changed? The money, obviously.

McBeth moving was a watershed moment. It raised the bar for everyone else. At this point, I think it's safe to say that whatever motivated players three years ago is irrelevant in the current environment.

I was wrong when I speculated about where McBeth ultimately landed (though I was right about some things, it didn't change his decision). I might be wrong again. I don't know officially (if I did know officially I wouldn't say).

I'm betting Discraft over Innova.

I think Innova would suffer a big gut punch to FPO team morale. They are clearly a frontrunner for Henna (as is Discraft), they signed Callie McMorran away from DD mid-season, the have Eveliina, and they have a steadily improving team (Allen, Weese, Fajkus, Walker, etc.) that can already make lead cards. I don't think that Innova's brand gets that big of a bump (relatively) by adding Paige's brand. I think their team gets more prestige certainly, but again that may have a collateral damage effect on a bunch of athletes that they've already invested in.

...side note. DD has dumped Callie, Jordan, and Paige's contracts within the past 4 months...are they headed towards a Lat64 style purge? Are they making a play for Henna?

Discraft is where Paige came from (everyone remember the "PP Stalkers"?), and remember she won her first Worlds with them. Val Jenkins really only gave them a half of a season in terms of full-blown grind before Bevel Brewing lifted off, and with Hailey King not ready to take the throne, as well as Vanessa Van Dyken's season being stymied by her trigger finger injury, and also Elaine King's departure for MVP...it just seems like the better fit to me personally.
