I have to say one thing. Some good people lost their jobs because of this, my girlfriend included. There were some people in that company that truly tried to do the right thing, but while Shawn Walker was there, it was impossible. Up until his last days there, Shawn had Bruce completely fooled. By the time Bruce found out what Shawn was doing (stealing money from the company...literally) the damage had been done. The economy just added to the problem. Had Shawn not stolen as much money as he did and if he actually had two functioning brain cells and ran the league better while he was there, it wouldn't have ended like this. The funding wasn't there for the next year because investors didn't trust it could do better and Shawn pissed a lot of sponsors off over his time there. After talking to everyone at the Pacific Paintball office yesterday, I can say with confidence that Shawn was ultimately the reason the doors closed.

Everyone can thank Shawn Walker for this!!!

i would like to say thanks to Mr. Walker because now my midwest series can take off. I have a series in mind that i would like to see a lot of national teams that played NPPL come and play here. I plan to have an entry fee that is less than NPPL and at a min. of 15 teams have a payout thats exponentially bigger than NPPL and PSP combined. You do the math $750 entry times 15 teams=payout for 1st-5th. For more info look at the okla thread under cuspa

now is a good time to concentrate on them fields of dreams.. work from ground zero, look forward to a future without politics, control your destiny, build new relationships. and make it work for you and the people in the same limelight as you. not for them, but for you. build the teams, get into invitational style tourneys. there should be a boycott, a union as proposed, now so that this stuff never happens again. there is a reason no outside forces likes to put money in paintball, ppl like shawn are a bunch of haters, and snakes always looking at fruit before the root.
if we all stuck together as players we willnot invest the years of money and bulls*&t for this kind of turn out.
NPPL may be forgotten or not. We play because there will be stories told for years to come. Now, its pissed away. We can never really say there was money, it was more playing time. We all know that the money put in never equates to the money coming out unless your the top .05% of the Pro leagues. Guess what? We the Player can have a voice and make the rules.

my question is, how did shawn play the Pac Paintball into his hands so well? and why did no one try to stop this blind man leading so long?

I say if Shawn Walker stole/embezzled money from NPPL and Pacific PB then he should go to jail. Lets hope that 7 man will continue...

if this is really happening then the psp should take up the responsibility of being the only national league. though i liked 7 man i think that psp should add 7 man or something so 7 man doesnt die out.

With all due respect for your gf and a realazation that Mr Walker definitly had the largest hand in this imo , I think theres some other people who were compalcent (sp*) in this as well, the idea that people who worked for pp didnt realize that is was bleeding cash is laughable imo ,.I as a outsider knew it was bad ,really bad and i voiced my concern to a bunch of them Shawn included ,what i got back was a big ish eating grin and alot of placating,basicly letting me know how they were the ones who knew, even at san diego dave was quick to tell me that "big sponsers wanted stadiums" i answered who the hell are you talking about? he in a dreamlike transe responded "coke and nike" i almost fell off my chair laughing, those are culpable imo to the demise of OUR LEAGUE!! those guys have to shoulder blame as well,, every one who worked there and watched as they pissed away money for stupid stuff is at fault as well..
