do "professional" paintball players think that they are so good that they dont even have to fill their own pods and tanks? jesus

look, the position is probably voluntary. it doesnt mean they are being nice because they are being fed on a silver platter, it could just as easily mean some kids wanted to help, and they said "sure." i can tell you hate the whole proball league, but that doesnt mean rag on people with no justification.

Well, you only have a certain amount of time before your next game I believe(someone must have numbers?). They are always like that right? A little rest and some water would be cool.
 
I've run into this problem a couple times in the NEPL with a regular 6 game prelim round schedule. Our team came off a game empty and the person on the PA announced us to be at the next field right away. Game would have been forfeited if we didn't know the kids we were playing that game.
 
 
Edit: I looked at Xball rules(If it was Xball) and it says there is a 2 minute stop between each flag hang.
2, 20 minute halves as many flag hangs as possible.

Actually, they don't have time seeing as they only have around 120 seconds (don't forget they must walk off the field and get back on to the start box) between rounds. I chose to pit, I was not asked to. I am a huge fan of Russian Legion and I wanted to help them out. I didn't do it for free paint, or for anything in return. I merely did it to be a good fan as did my friends. We would have been happy getting absolutely nothing. All the players on the team were very grateful. One of the players, Kirill Prihidni, even gave my friend a free pair of evil pants. My friend was asking around the players if they had an extra one of the black practice jerseys they could sell and none did so Kirill told Kevin he could have his pants for free. Brand new evil 06 pants. Don't say they are full of themselves when you have never even met them bro.

We were not sucking up or "blowing smoke up their asses". We were merely being good fans and supporting our favorite team. We pitted for them last year and had a great time so we chose to do it again this year. I don't care what you think about pro paintballers but of all the ones I've met, they are all great, down to earth, genuine people. I'm sure there are some jerks out there but there are jerks everywhere and you just gotta deal with it.
