I respect a man who will look me in the eye and tell me what's on his mind. No need to walk on eggshells.

No problem here with showing them the door. I have to ask though, are you sure your wife and kids are ready to become 100 percent committed to 100 percent of the cooks? How about telling your buds that you would like to give your family a few chances to help you compete and say do every 2nd or 3rd comp with the old team mates and the others with family. This way you give the family a good taste of what it means and still get some bonding not to mention you still have the original team if say one of your kids gets sick or has other things to do and your wife will need to stay home, then you can ask a team member or two to step in and help. Just a thought. Do you at this time split any winnings?

^this. I love cooking with my teammates, but if I ever decided to go back to cooking by myself, I really doubt I could sell it to my wife as "family time" for her to come out and be my dishwasher.

Iíve been dealing with this myself at the end of the year. Iíve had a few people helping me this year. But it gets painful when youíre the only one paying for everything. I had to cut one lose because of not helping. He wouldnít even bring his own drinks or food then would eat and drink twice as much as me. That SUCKED. Iím planning on going pro after a two upcoming comps and I do not have the funds anymore to support others. I have a few others that will help when I ask. Itís a family event for us as well. Sometimes my family can come and sometimes not. When they cant I ask others to come and help. But when there is a Comp that is really close I ask all of the people that help me to come and bring their families and we have a great time after turn ins. But there is no better feeling when your teams name is called and the kids can go up with you.

I know what you mean, but I guess it's just a nice departing gesture to offer them. But then again, if it's a new team and new members, why not change the name?
