Paintball isnt fun to watch unless you play. You cant see the Ball ropes and stuff.


Oh yeah wrong thread!

I saw it on ESPN not long ago. They still show paintball from time to time.

It's speedball though so I couldn't care less.

takes way too long to edit so a regular audience knows what the hell is going on
plus the average person would wonder why players are shooting SO DAMN MUCH at nothing
it's just hard to market to a non-paintball market

Its the same reason you don't see a lot of sports on tv, if you don't play/aren't into them they are very boring to watch. Pretty much the only things I want to watch during the olympics is the olympic weightlifting, shot put, discus and sprints.

Generally I get 40 different sprints to choose from and maybe 8 minutes total of all of the other events combined.

You obviously know the feeling you get while playing but really in speedball you get about 3 seconds of sprinting off the start and then however long the match lasts with maybe 1 kickass move in the middle that no one else would really see as a kickass athletic maneuver.

Woodsball.... have you ever watched hunting shows on tv? Think of that but less interesting to watch.

It's still on some extreme sports channels and such. Limited though.

It appears the paintball on TV thing sort of died as the sport took a hit over the past 3-5 years. It's still a very "niche" sport, so having it on TV is a long shot. The best thing for TV coverage would be to get incorporated into the X-Games.

Which isn't going to happen as the X-Games are for individual events. Not team events.

Because it sucks to watch.. Everytme I saw it I wanted to grab my marker and play 50 snake... Not watch some random college teams play. Also non player audiences are intimidated by it. If I wasnt a player id be so scared if Chris Lasoya.

With that logic, the same could be said for PSP matches, since it triggers the part of your brain that craves paintball. meaning that UCONN and Dynasty both have the same effect on you, television-wise. besides, don't knock the NCPA, the teams that make it onto Fox College Sports at Nationals usually know their stuff. and FOX knows how to cover paintball.

Because the everyday/ typical viewer could care less about paintball.
