Im watching the x games right now and its in hunington beach and i was thinking paintball should be an event there. The NPPL always has a tourney there every year any way. and with the thousands of ppl that go to and watch the x games and would be good publicity. What do you guys think.

Yes, because we all want paintball to be ONLY made up of posers, wannabes and trend-following sheep who think the only way to be cool is dress like a clown and run through three 9 volt batteries in one game...

Please. If paintball ever gets like skateboarding has been for the last few years, with tourney players being like Tony Hawk.... we'll need to stage a commando-style hostile takeover of the nation to prove that tournaments aren't the only way to play.
Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.

Paintball isn't an extreme sport

Nobody ever suspects the fun police!

My friend and I got the chance to watch the NPPL Tourney in Denver as we were waiting for the gates to open to the Vans Warped Tour (happening right next door). All I can say is that some of those tourney players already seemed cawky enough and it felt like it was all about image. If paintball went all mainstream, it could change the way it's seen as the recreational sport we've come to love.
