should x-games include paintball???

I think they should, paintball is the third most popular xtreme sport and many others farther down that list are including

ie. wakeboarding (very fun, but does not come close to paintball)

i actually dont know if this counts as paintball in the media becuase it is not in the x-games...yet.

No. The X-Games is not for teams, and paintball does not have a high injury rate.

The X-Games is for single participints(Ie: Skateboarding, BMX, etc.). It is not a team sport competition.

that is just because most xtreme sports are not team sports, think about it what other xtreme sport is.

so in that case dont you think paintball could be included

Thats the reason that they are in the X-Games. "Extreme" sports are not team sports. Paintball is a team sport. I dont see much extremes in it.

The free dictionary has this article on extreme sports:

Extreme sport: (practically synonymous with the term action sport) is a general term for sports featuring speed, height, danger or spectacular stunts. A feature of such activities in the view of some is their alleged capacity to induce a so-called ‘‘adrenaline rush’’ in participants (a misnomer, since often the rush or high obtained is a product of increased levels of dopamine endorphins and serotonin).

in moto x you should wear a helmet, not everybody does

maybe pb players have a little more sense than moto x ers becuase if you take a paintball to the eye forget about it. same thing with bashing your temple against a rock or something, but helmets are not strictly enforced like masks are
