Several days ago, provide apologized for comments he made two years ago that included racial slurs. He changed his alias after making the apology because he no longer wanted to be associated with the word, although he maintained it was not associated with the discriminatory term.
Schwartz declined to comment on if provide's release was related to the comments he apologized for.

The Valiant play their first game of the season February 8 when they play the Dallas Fuel in Dallas.
