“We’re winners… if you don’t set goals then you can’t fail to reach them,” – shame.’s Captains

Many teams and ultimate communities took the extended 2020 break to retool or reset. Arizona Lawless was born out of a community restructure in the Phoenix area, Nashville ‘Shine and Boston Sprocket popped up as Nationals contenders, and plenty of big name players shifted over to the mixed division (hello Robyn Fennig and basically half of the 2019 Riot roster). Amidst all of the turnover, transition, and change, Fort Collins is sending the “same old shame.”, team captains Ashley Daly Morgan, Ryan Morgan, Marilyn Reich, and Spencer Tibbs wrote to Ultiworld. “White claw, Hucks And Chaos.”

Fort Collins shame., 2019 semifinalists, rolled through the 2021 regular season and are entering this year’s Club Championships as the top seed. Even without explicit aspirations, and with healthy doses of comradery, swag, and hype, it’s possible that the goalless team might accomplish the ultimate prize.
