^^If that is true, that would be awesome. I think the USA could do good in it.  I also think it should be included in the X-games, although it needs to become more popular.

I have always considered paintball more of a game than a sport. I bet over-pretective mothers wouldn't like the fact that guys running around with "guns" and "shooting" each other is appropriate for ESPN/ABC.

 What defines an "Extreme Sport"? I have always though of one as a sport that is "unconventional(sp)". Paintball is very out of the ordinary. Most sports use things like balls and maybe some pads. Paintball uses a gun to propel a ball at 300 FPS using compressed air in a tank. If that sin't extreme, I don't know what is. BTW: Motocross is an extreme sport, and you just race a bike (mostly).

Paintball is the truly the 3rd largest sport in the US alone, as stated ealier above 9.8 million players and counting and I do agree it should be part of the X-Games and everyone should remember the Tournament in Long Beach, Calif. over 400,000 attended.

according to a poll in the september 04 issue of APG, its the #3 extreme sport, so i can see it being in the X-games, as for the olympics, i doubt it because its too technology based

 I am gonna need proof on that. 3rd Largest sport doesn't sound right. Maybe extreme sport. I bet tons more play baseball, but i don't have the statistics, so I'll have to look it up.
