what if you had to make your living off of paintball? thats really hard. the average proffesional paintball player gets paid $30,000-$60,000 a year. most have jobs working with their main sponsor, but oliver is getting paid 100,000 a year to play and do some advertising stuff. would you pass that up? i am sure oliver didnt want to leave his freinds but he needed to make a sufficient living and going to the ironmen gave him that chance.
