Announcers?

I wanted to start this off by saying I did have fun watching this tournament on the live stream and I thank the NPPL for offering a free live stream. I did have a problem with the announcers though. None of them had much experience, if any experience, commentating on live gameplay. Now obviously nobody is born with experience but you should have a solid commentator up there with these newbies helping them to announce and commentate the games. They would mute their mics after most everything they said which led to annoying clicking noises constantly, they would confuse themselves every game with whose playing (Which was difficult because of the game rotations) and when they didnt mute their mics there would be conversations going on in the backgrounds which we were forced to listen to. There also seemed to be bickering between a few of them at certain points with their mics on which we had to listen to and I even heard them stereotyping certain races and countries at certain points. I understand commentating is hard and these people took time out of their weekends to help with this live stream but cmon if you're going to step up to the plate and try to fill a big spot as the commentator of a live stream I think you should try to be as professional as possible and have someone with experience up there to back you up. Those are my thoughts... anyone else care to comment?

I don't know if they were the same commentators as the ones at the event, but whoever was the MC at the event should never be able to MC at an NPPL event again. The sexual comments about the Saporro and Hooter girls were completely unnecessary as there were kids all around the event. I love me some Hooters girls, but when a parent gets drug out there to see something their kid is so enthusiastic about and all they hear is trashy talk about women and sexual references, the parent probably won't want their kid anywhere near our sport. That was literally the only complaint about the event, it was completely terrible.

PSP was 10x better! To be honest that wasn't just the announcers fault. They needed better back up and also this format is tough to follow.

everyone around me was getting disgruntled by the event MC/announcer

im 1/16th japanese and the stereotypical asian voices he was making while promoting Sapporo beer offended me.

he wouldnt stop talking. i know his job was to talk on the mic, but he was just spilling out rubbish the entire time and there wasnt a thing he said that i enjoyed.

get todd back. or ashton kutcher.

I agree with the live MC. He talked so loud and said the dumbest ****.

I wasn't offended by the sexual remarks, but I understand and know that some people were.

In all, he was dumb and they need a new one.

The live streams were immitating canadiens and australians among other, imitating accents and stereotypical phrases those people use. As for the live mc I mean surf city is one of the most public events, being on the beach where walkups can hear everything your saying so why say stupid **** that can offend people

it was extremely immature for what they were doing. they really need to get their whole webcast reorganized for next event. not have it be down all day, mics always work, dont have the same angle on the carwash the WHOLE stream while everything is happening on the dorrito side. they need the PSP crew to do it.

I'm confident that the announcers you heard online were the same ones we heard live. They were ignorant and unacceptable, to go as far as to single out a female attendee and basically say "I'd hit it" in front of everyone, among other outrages. NPPL, please look into finding a different crew of announcers...

The announcer that was doing the live commentary was ****ing annoying. Everything everyone has said so far is true and it got quite ridiculous.
If I hear one more thing about Sapparo I'm going to shoot my face off with a shotgun.

I was not at the event nor did I watch the webcast because everytime I did try to watch it was ****ed up somehow so I gave up.....but all you guys saying that the MC's were stereotyping and using other voices to copy other people I think that isnt that bad. I mean comeon people mock and make fun of each other all the time.....and ive heard it on PSP's webcast where they try to impersonate an aussie and such. I think SOME people need to just gain a little thicker skin depending on what was said and how vulgar it was..................again I WAS NOT AT THE EVENT OR HEAR THE COMMENTS SO IF THEY WERE REALLY THAT BAD THEN ILL TAKE YOUR WORD AND DISREGARD MY POST....but about singling out the girl I do think that if its suppose to be a family event they are loosing business now....but then again think about how they have the bikini pageant type thing at chicago. EVERYONE likes to see hot girls and some people who are more confident will actually say it but on a mic? not recommended unless your a DJ at a strip club.

I agree with what your saying, but as someone hoping for paintball to grow as a sport and reach a new level having commentators stereotype and make unnacceptable comments is bad. None of the comments were TOO rude or TOO offensive but why does it have to be rude or offensive at all?

Thank you! I was thinking the same thing, I saw so many little kids at the event. The announcers went on for about 20 minutes about girls in bikinis and staring at this girls boobs the whole time. To me that doesn't really help grow the sport to the younger generation.
