This is an excellent point. The economy is killing many different markets, paintball is just one of them. As far as DYE not reaching in far enough, this is exactly why.
The elite players of the league will get some type of compensation to keep them around. You all know who those players are without mentioning names. The real paintball entrepreneurs are those like Ollie, LBFOW, and others who look inside of the sport to help boost their careers. Sean might be a little young, especially with this economy.
