PLEASE STOP USING DUBSTEP IN ANY AND ALL PAINTBALL VIDEOS CAUSE REALLY ITS JUST HARD TO WATCH WITH THAT UNINTELLIGIBLE GARBAGE PLAYING.


On average NPPL and semi players can satisfy their girlfriends and wives much better than PSP and ramping players :)

You must have been acting like a jackass... everytime I've been up to canada (To ref a paintball tournament of mainly canadians) they're always super nice... border is the worst, but it sucks both ways.

take a poll of Canadian opinion of Americans. I will admit, I can be a complete *******, ask my friends they will tell you... but my Grandmother was treated the same way (we were visiting friends and family together) so I really doubt that's what the problem was.

nobody likes americans...

fact is, without america, the world would be WAY different...

tons of countries make TONS of money from American tourists who are known to spend the most money of all tourists. People hate us, problem is, if we go away, their quality of life would in turn decrease...

America is like the most popular kid in school.

love us or hate us we still the best

NPPL HB 2008 WAS BY FAR A MUCH BETTER EVENT HANDS DOWN. IT WAS SAD TO SEE THE NPPL COME TO ITS DEMISE. BUT THIS ISNT THE NPPL, ALL WE CAN DO IS HOPE THAT THE USPL SUCCEEDS AND BRINGS PAINTBALL BACK INTO THE MAINSTREAM. IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE ANOTHER XTREME PAINTBALL BEYOND THE PAINT ON T.V.
AGAIN AS FAR AS THE EVENT IS CONSIDERED, IT WAS VERY DISSAPOINTING AS A SPECTATOR, ESPECIALLY ONE WITH SMALL CHILDREN. FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFICULTIES OF NOT BEING ABLE TO USE YOUR STROLLER WILL SOON HAVE YOUR DAY. I DID CARY MY KIDS, BOTH OF THEM, AND IT SUCKED.
THE VENDING AREA WAS GARBAGE, GARBAGE, GARBAGE, GARBAGE AND THAT PRETTY MUCH SUMS IT UP.
GL USPL. HOPE TO SEE YOU AROUND NEXT YEAR

I can understand what are you saying since hb08 was on the board walk where you could use your stroller. I am not sure why this year they could not put vendors on the boardwalk. Perhaps it was a city permit thing or perhaps not i am not sure.
What I do know is that USPL improvised with the planks and did the best they could with the space they had available.
While it is unfortunate that you had a hard time with your stroller and kids, thousands of other people enjoyed the spectacle and provided positive feedback.
Maybe next year, there will be more teams and therefore by default more room will be needed and u will be able to use your stroller.
I encourage you to continue to support USPL so that you can continue to come to HB and use your stroller.

This is just about the dumbest thing I've read in a while, and I read PbNation every day.

When you have a small child, have fun with your dose of reality.

Wait! We have a new contender...

Sack it up, be man and help your wife carry the large baby bag and blankets.

look at the Phoenix United and Impact game. Obviously no anti Canadian sentiment there. So much for that fantasy.

Exclamation

SO from what I can see, most of the major complaints are as follows.

1. Not enough Bikini Babes to look at.... WHOOPS, thats not on the list.

1. Not enough Vendors.
(Remember, Vendors are the people who choose to come, not USPL. Complain to your vendor if you would like them to show up to future USPL Events)

2. Vendors being on the sand = NO
(I can completely agree with this, the sand is 1. too hard to walk on, 2. gets everywhere, 3. isnt a sturdy surface)

3. Player Pits being too cramped.
(Not enough tables, too small of an area)

4. Paintball Distribution
(This area needs to be smooth, since we all know we fill our pods and go ****! NEED MOAR PAINT!)

5. Wire fence behind netting
(Players and spectators, this is for your safety. When paint hits the netting, it still hits the netting with force and can HURT YOU, and can STILL take out an eye and cause alot of damage. Remember, Safety 1st when playing paintball)

6. Bathrooms too far away
(The bathrooms should be within reasonable distance, DOWN WIND of the event, but not a hike worthy.)

Everyone needs to remember, that with the NPPL gone, the USPL doesn't have all the industry ties or support that the NPPL did. The USPL will infact be a success, all everyone needs to do is give it a chance to act and improve on everyone's ideas.

I for one, do not miss the NPPL, for it was a flawed system. Everyone needs to remember that the USPL has a fresh plate to start on, and everyone now has a second chance to fix what they screwed up in the past.

USPL, go forth and create awesome events, for thyne will be watching and loving it.

Everyone forgets that if it wasn't for the Americans we'd all be speaking German now.

I don't think you guys realize how hard it is to have an event on the sand. It takes a lot of work plus ALOT of cash to make this happen. I commend the USPL for putting on a pretty good venue in HB. It was their first event and it was at the hardest place to hold a tournament. I love HB, but I feel that it would have been better if the USPL would have had it somewhere more accomidating to the fans and players. Maybe do HB the following year, but to hold your first event in HB sounds crazy to me. But I am suprised on how well it turned out. Yeah the reffs had some flaws, that happens at every event. Paintball is the hardest sport to ref. And I know that if the USPL didn't do HB that everyone would be mad. Don't get me wrong, evrything has room for improvement. So give the USPL a chance, they just knocked the hardest venue off their sheet. And it happned to be their first one.
I USPL
