Because teams that aren't sponsored by Valken might have to pay up the *** for paint.

I trust Mike on this. I have met him multiple and spoken with him several times in person and on the phone and he always has the best interest for the players and the paintball community as a whole first, regardless of what league, format, etc.

Yes DYE makes paint. And, its really good which suppises no one seeing as everything they make is good.

With all of the rumors of this paint disaster and the collapse of the NPPL/PSP merger, I think its fair to say that WE as paintball players deserve some answers.

I think Lane and Pev and whoever else was involved in these negotiations needs to put something together for the players to explain what really happen and why we don't have one unified league. At this point this is just sad to see how divided the players are, its sad to see how divided the people who have dedicated their lives to running and growing this sport are. If they could just put all of the BS aside, paintball might actually return to what it once was.

And I say that as a person who has been playing in National event since the early 2000's. I saw paintball at its peak, and it was amazing. I understand this is a business for the people at the top, but they need to understand that WE as players depend on them to make the best decisions for the future of the sport.

I think in a lot of cases in recent year, that has been over looked, and the decisions that have been made have been about the bottom line of dollars and cents. And that is what is stalling the growth of this sport. I could be completely wrong, and I know that. But as of late it seems as if things just happen, and that's it. No explanation to the us the players, the people who are the true stock holders of this sport. We are just expected to except whatever decision is made and go about our day.

I just don't see that working out, in fact, it hasn't and that's why our sport is where it is.


Lastly, in no way am I calling Lane or Pev out, I just wish they would give us the answers we as players deserve. As of now they haven't and that is what has lead to these rumors, because everything about the merger and now this paint deal just seems shady.

Why? So we can point fingers? In the end we have the same result, with just more people crying.

Let it go, the merger didn't happen.

Mike - I don't agree with how this was handled (edit: by this I mean how dustin handled it). I may support nppl but I'm not here to slander the psp. Maybe force some people to see both sides of the coin.

However I think discussions like this are good. There was a day when the manufacturers didn't have to answer to anyone really. (In comparison to this social media age where word spreads to your whole customer base in an hour)

Also to the dye paint thing. Does dye not own/fund most of the league? I didn't know they even sold paint at psp before

EDIT: Original poster (Minions) has a decent amount of truth behind him.

Dye has made paint for quite a while though it has only been available to the Asian market.

whether its true or not is not the point here. if dustin is wrong then let him eat his words, if dustin is right then it goes the other way. you guys feeding into it and telling him to "say it to your face" is just as bad as starting a rumor. the man should not be banned for his post; his freedom of speech was just exhibited on a public forum. if the rumors are false, dont feed into it. the insults just make things worse.

The problem is that the vast majority of people on this site are very young and don't bother to check sources, facts, etc. People are raising objections for 'freedom of speech' yet even the First Amendment has limitations against slander and libel. The object(s) of said accusations has just as much right to not be talked about (unless proven) as the accuser has to talk about it. Does that make sense (kind of a oddly structured sentence)? Bottom line: yes, we all have freedom of speech, BUT the OP does deserve to get smacked with the ban stick if his accusations are unfounded and could potentially hurt hard-earned business of companies based on the lies he's spreading on a very public hotspot of paintball information.

Also, you don't have freedom of speech on this forum. That's not a "omgz PBNZ is the devil" comment. That's a lesson kids need to understand. The internets are subject to rules by the people that own what you play on. PBN gets to choose what stays and goes.

IMO he was a threat to someones money making scheme. Why else would he be banned.

IMO a large amount of truth was found in these rumors and the reaction confirmed it for me.
If it were that serious they'd have deleted this thread

Although you do have the right to say whatever you wish and free speech and all that stuff. What minions posted is considered libel and that is against the law and KEE, GI, and DXS can sue him for those accusations. Technically PbNation cannot get into any trouble because they are an online forum and are not responsible for what other people say on here, but either way they don't want any kind of lawsuit against minions or themselves.
