My friend. You are lacking logic in your argumentation. You have the pieces but you don't know how to connect them in a whole.
Your title says "VP lies" but how can the truth be a lie? Doesn't matter what pasha says, they have been playing together for over three years together, they did not kick anyone even when they were slumping and all of that proves that yes, indeed they are a family and we don't need pasha's words to confirm that. No other team has been able to do that, so yes, if we can call "family" any team that is currently playing, that would be VP.
Another thing - kuban and Loord were not really kicked due to their lack of performance. They simple felt out of love for the game and therefore decided to leave. It was an agreement. Kuben didn't do anything for a long while in CS, while Loord started his own little teams. They were friends and still are.
Besides, you are comparing two statements that shouldn't be compared because they talk about two different things. Before VP, the Golden Five had huge problems finding an organization that would be willing to pay them contracts. They were in fact unlucky with organizations ever since they created the team back in 2004. It's hard to keep the composure if you have no money to pay the rent or buy food and that's pretty much the situation they were in when they parted ways with kuben and Loord. It wasn't about the winning. It was about surviving. Contract money. Finding a good org. And now when pasha says that they are not in it for the money, he means winning. Of course they want to succeed, but even a bigger slump won't split them apart. They don't care what the prize money is. They never did actually.
