ZooMaa Drops Stallions Roster And Cousin After Cheating Accusations Surfaced

ZooMaa Drops Stallions Roster And Cousin After Cheating Accusations Surfaced
FaZe Clan | Stallions

In the wicked ways of the Italian mafia, it's sometimes your own kind who are your ultimate downfall, and despite this circumstance not quite meeting the same cutthroat criteria of a vendetta, the ZooMafia have had an in-house row that even the Peaky Blinders' Changrette family would have been proud of.

Shortly after backing his cousin and a fairly unknown Call of Duty challengers team, Thomas "ZooMaa" Paparatto has now kicked the roster from his Stallions brand, after the team was caught subtly cheating in an official match.

ZooMaa Drops Stallions Roster From Brand

ZooMaa, a retired Call of Duty professional turned content creator for FaZe Clan, recently picked up an amateur team for his own personal brand, Stallions. The American-Italian ex-pro agreed to take the four-man squad under his wing and fund their way to Challengers events - without an official contract or salary, simply a helping hand to get to events - and had his cousin Vincent (VinnY) as a coach.

However, after just over a month being associated with the brand, in which they managed a third-place finish at the Call of Duty Challengers Elite Stage 2 playoffs earning $6,000, a recent clip surfaced of the roster cheating. 

The clip in question saw Stallions playing on Gavutu Hardpoint, where coach VinnY can be heard telling players to rotate to the next capture point, having allegedly been watching a "live feed".

After seeing the accusations circulating, ZooMaa originally took to Twitter to say, "I'll address this on stream, but obviously, I don't condone rule breaks like this and it’s disappointing. Coaches shouldn’t be talking to players during matches."

 

Now, ZooMaa has confirmed that the team will no longer be representing his brand, saying "this is a lesson they need to understand."

Taking to his stream, the ex-pro said, "I would love to have a Challengers team but as of right now I think I'm going to reevaluate things and pull it back. I'm not going to be funding these guys moving forward as of right now, including my cousin."

"This is a lesson they need to understand. They broke a rule, they have to know the rules. It’s a lesson they need to learn," he continued.

The FaZe Clan content creator, and host of the popular talk show The Flank, did reiterate that he would still like to back a challengers team in the same way, although he will be taking some time to reflect on which roster he will support.
