Yeah screw NPPL and ESPN for helping paintball. You all sound like a bunch of spoiled brats that is use to getting everything you want.

How about Thank you NPPL and ESPN for all the hard work in getting this deal together and helping our sport.

Its just frustrating. I would gladly pay to watch my friends that are on the other side of north america in the USA. This way, i can't watch them at all.. ugh.
Life goes on.

Perhaps the NPPL teamed up with ESPN because they have the advertisement money to actually pay for an excellent webcast.

When you guys had to pay ($10 I might add....less than what your fat *** probably spent at Burger King yesterday) to watch a webcast all everyone did was *****. When it was free, everyone complained that the cameras cut in and out. It seems that no matter how the paintball industry actually tries to help, people on pbn find something stupid to complain about.

Perhaps someone smart (obviously with access to espn3.com) will download Replay Media Catcher (and pay the $30 to actually save videos) and upload them to a dropbox account. Then maybe after people paypal said genius $1 (to cover the cost of RMC) they will be sent a link to the dropbox folder. Just a thought. And before anyone asks, yes i have RMC....and no, my ISP doesn't have espn3

NPPL took this deal to get paintball on TV, to push the sport forward.

This is the only thing we could land with our track record of being complaisant and for blowing our last shot!

Its moreso the painstaking legal process of getting these contracts is hard enough in America, let alone Canada.

ESPN Canada (known as TSN exclusively) is the root of this speedbump as far as I'm concerned.

Has ESPN3 EVER been available to Canadians ? Why do we expect the carpet to be rolled out for us, it's the internet. Everything will be mirror'd/uploaded in time.. just be patient.

Show some enthusiasm/professionalism so that they (ESPN) actually WANTS to help us as a community. There are a dozens of sports that get the same exact trial as us. Don't blow it by being spoiled.

Perhaps send them feedback how you appreciate the steps taken to get paintball back on the map of extreme sports in media. Express concern that you haven't been able to tune in but want it to continue for the evolution/growth of the sport.

Since your xbox is connected to the same isp as your computer, if you can't get it on your computer, you can't get it on your xbox. Just go to pblive or whatever its called and watch their mirror. Quality sucks....but I was told the actual broadcast was choppy as well...

Awesome webcast... Hopefully they will do the same for the rest of the nppl events this year.... and if all the people that are *****ing on pbn actually tried to send ESPN an email, maybe they would broaden the webcast, or best case scenario maybe next yr we can get paintball back on national tv with espn2 or something....... ESPN/NPPL keep up the good work!!!
