It's hard to determine which causes the other. There's a lot of players in a lot of places, but they go bankrupt twice as fast traveling more than cali and florida players. If I can be a florida player and play all the events for several thousand a year less than someone from the northwest or maybe someone from the texas/oklahoma/arkansas/louisiana area, I'm more likely to keep playing. I guess we'll see how all these florida players support the USPL when they have to travel as much as the rest of us.

Thats a very good argument however tournaments hosted in Florida are recognized for all of the teams that show up to attend them.

People whom travel out of state have the other opportunity to play against way more teams.

i didn't feel like posting but i will and i completely agree with you. i don't care about weather as much anymore just because i love to play. only a tornado would stop me from playing. but yes cali is just hot, fl is hot and extrememly humid. cali's atmosphere is better imo. im from indiana too so i don't travel a whole lot. i would much rather go to cali. im not even a 7 man player either haha. so i guess i really don't care.

If you want a FL event then go play in California. If enough FL teams compete in the league then it'll be enough to convince the league that FL is worth investing in.

Yeah there should a Fl event.

Fl and cali are the Powerhouse of paintball. It would be idiotic to not include FL.

We use to have 3 (PSP Orlando, PSP Worldcup, and NPPL Tampa). So it goes to show you how much Florida was rocking even though I did see PSP "Orlando" and than Worldcup to kind of be useless since it was at the same exact spot even though it's a perfect spot it probably pissed off anyone that played in the PSP. But FL atleast needs one USPL event because we're right behind cali in paintball terms.

well we should just not support uspl and give our support to people who give us support (psp). besides acknowledging us they bring in so many teams that give a small boost to our economy. if a league is ignorant enough to leave florida out then so be it. it just makes it easier for us to decide what league we're gonna side with

Florida works out for more than the obvious.

When the dates come out and those that have families find themselves trying to figure ones they can go to Florida ends up as the easy one.
" Hey dear one of the events is in Orlando,Miami, Tampa ( you plug in the city ) just think we all could go". SOLD!!!!!
Next scenario ( ok not knocking anyone but think you will get my drift ).
" Hey dear one of the events is in Kansas City , just think of all the fun we can have".
See what I mean.

More teams can go to Florida, too much to do , reasonable rates on hotels and airfare. Famiilies love it and this makes those players with families sell it without as much heat as the other places it could be.

Yes California has tons of teams but its a harder sell because most people from the east coast and south think its too expensive so would never consider the family going.

Florida needs to have a USPL Miami at least.

Come on bring it

yea but most those teams dont play the uspl the only team that plays uspl that i saw at the HB was rage. the reason why their are so many west coast events is because the pros pretty much make the uspl from my understanding.
