68 caliber had it listed to from a notice they got from Pacific Paintball...I just wonder if Shawn gets to keep XPSL or if it falls under the Pacific Paintball corporate banner....

Did Shawn own IDPRO or did Pacific Paintball?

Scott can be reached at our Riverside, California office.

Scott and the entire Pacific Paintball team look forward to a successful season finale tournament and trade show at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego the weekend of November 14-16, 2008. Currently the event is shaping up to have our largest number of exhibitors at a trade show, second only to the Huntington Beach event.

Also upcoming in November is the North America release of the NPPL Championship Paintball 2009 video game which we co-ventured with Activision and which has received significant advance praise and interest. In addition, we will be relaunching our magazine with a new and exciting look (more about that later this week).

We look forward to following up with each of you as soon as possible to discuss any/all of the above as well as the 2009 season. The entire dedicated staff at Pacific Paintball thank you for your support
email from PP to stake holders, maybe its a fake

It would be cool if the APPA system came back instead of IDPRO.

Honestly, the teams payed a lot of effin money to play on what?? I'll tell you...sh**y fields, horrible reffing, bad locations ( C'Mon now..SC Village used to be the **** back in day...now it just smells like it!) I mean seriously Shawn...didnt you JUST buy a new car and you can't kick down some at least decent turf bro...c'mon now kid!!!

How bout next time not hiring a temp agency to send over "refs" and using real people who actually are used to the game and have the balls to check and double check a hit -vs- rub!

lol i think everyone is over reacting a bit...just because he got fired doesnt neccessarily mean you will see any changes. It could easily been because they couldnt pay him [the way the economy is going this wouldnt surprise me] but i guess we will never know unless shawn himself decides to post a response.

maybe Shawn quit
UPDATE:

We spoke with Shawn Walker this afternoon, and he confirmed that he is indeed no longer associated with Pacific Paintball. He commented that the time for a change had come about, and unfortunately for him, the changes are to start at the top.

He's looking forward to taking a little time off and getting his bearings, and looks forward to being involved with Paintball as a sport and an industry in the future.

He also answered the question regarding the XPSL. The XPSL is wholly owned by Pacific Paintball, and as such he doesn't retain ownership of it.
