Surely putting a couple extra on someone shouldn't be compared to what the saint's did. Which is purposely targeting players in areas to which they were to know have a previous injury. You're acting like 5 extra paintballs will cause lasting harm. It certainly will not end careers.

the ncPA does not hold the same rules and elligibility of the ncAA

we don't make the rules. sorry. it just happens that we were able to build a pro team from omaha, ne and they are all friends and some of them go to school. our bad.

Your not seeing my point either. Like you said, putting a couple of extra paintballs won't hurt someone or end their career. But going with the attitude of wanting to hurt or purposely inflict pain on somebody is what the issue is.

lol

I know that, we all know. We are seeing Omaha playing with pro players right? lol The topic was if it was fair or not?

Anyways, who cares. It's the internet. As long as the rules stay the same, people will try to use them to their advantage. Heck, if its legal, why not right? But is it fair? Not really.

I agree with you, but I can see how players in the heat of the moment get that attitude.

Yeah, when things are getting tense, it's always satisfying to be able to give your opponent a couple reminders of who took them out. But pushing the pain/hurt people aspect of it out front isn't very inviting for new players, and doesn't accurately represent the sport.

Not only "pushing" the pain and hurt aspect but having that attitude of "this is what is all about" like the announcers were saying earlier is just stupid. for helping to give our growing sport a good name.

I talked to Uconn, they had a full roster of seniors who this was their last college event, so they concieded the point to give there seniors one more moment of glory on the field. Not a bad way to go out.

Still want to stay with your prediction? I knew if those guys every played class A it would rough for other teams. Most of those players have tons of experience in all formats of paintball.

Makes perfect sense. I wondered if they were trying to get someone out there. Didn't even think about the seniors.

UConn wanted to put out their Seniors in one line for a last point before the end of their college careers.
