There are a few similarities between the ESL/ASL and the CFCL which we will delve into in a later post. But today we learn about Chris Malinowski and his team the Malcontents. Trying to put things in CFCL terms, the Drewers bear a shocking resemblance to Dem Rebels (original owner, a little success, best friends of another original owner). So that would mean that the Malcontents would be the Copperfields. Well, yes, but it would be more accurate to say the Malcontents are the Copperfields on steroids (I mean that in a "oh my god this is unbelievable" way rather than in a "cheating, performance enhanced" way). The Copperfields, as we know won 11 titles (and seven 2nd place finishes) in 28 years. Pretty damn good.
The Malcontents have won 16 championships (and finished 2nd four times) in 28 years. I'll let that sink in for a minute. Forty-five percent more titles than the Copperfields! The Malcontents, if you can believe this, won six consecutive titles from 1991-1996 and then turned around and won five in a row from 2000-2004.
Despite all that success, Chris comes off as a normal, humble guy who appreciates his fellow owners, especially Gallagher. Let's hear about it in his own words. It's time to meet the Malcontents.
