If body armor gets my girl on the field, I'll buy her as many vests as she wants. 

I think that applies to everyone. Whatever makes you comfortable and gets you in the game is good for the sport.

I got made fun of too, people said I was dumb for spending so much on one marker and then so much on paint and a tank, then they found out that Matt played too and BAM it was all cool and I was just a copycat.

It aint about black or white

I think it has to do with the fact that its still a relatively new sport.

Like Rico mentioned, skateboarding didn't command a whole lot of respect when it first started, and now it's grown pretty big.

A couple of more seasons will see paintball getting a little bit more respectable.

At lease I hope.
