will the NPPL please just hurry up and hire me to run a webcast from now on?

Sheesh. That way I can stop hearing everyone use a webcast as an excuse for another league being better.

No webcast probably means they are broke? If so, PSP could probably lowball NPPL and absorb it. I think PSP doesn't want to absorb such a ****ty league. They should just do it anyways because they feel sorry for them.

I was an NPPL fan, until now. I'm disgusted.

PSP rules, NPPL drools.

No webcast = Less interest for your product = less money

Stick a fork in 'er boys, she's done. I think I hear a fat lady singing. What's up for the next event, no bunkers?

Explain to me why every thread I see you in (NPPL related), you're bashing the NPPL? More importantly, why are you excited about a "brand" of paintball dying. Shouldn't we hope that this sport as a whole continues to thrive?

What exactly do you stand to gain by the NPPL going under? Now, I truly have no preference between leagues, but I do enjoy the option of choosing between them, or EVEN playing in both. No one should be excited that a portion of paintball is not doing well....

Please continue the mindless trolling, it adds so much to this thread.

The NPPL isn't dieing, paintball is though.
The players are killing the sport. (The ones bashing other leagues because of formats,webcasts,paint,vendors,cost,location,ect.. ..)
Pretty sad to me.

If book dies the.following will happen:

1. Psp fanboys will celebrate in the streets
2. Psp will have a monopoly and raise prices dramatically since they're the only national league.
3. Nppl supporters will laugh as the psp supporters continue to find something to complain about.

Tournament paintball could be doing better. Scenario play and woodsball are doing just fine.

Don't blame the players for the league's faults. Format is personal preference but the rest of those reasons are on the league and dictated by money. Just because its all we have doesn't mean its free from fault.

Its similar to how we, as Americans, blame ourselves for not being able to find a job when it's bad government policy in the 2000's and corporate greed that are pushing unemployment rates into the teens.

que paso? I thought we were talking paintball.

Also people posting negative comments may reflect on anthers decision on playing the tournament or not. Just because of a webcast at one event? Everyone just needs to stop bashing different tournaments/formats and stop the doucheness

And I'm not saying its just people bashing the NPPL cause it definitely goes both ways.

One national league, one format, will legitimiZe the sport... From the ground up. But do we really need to have this huuuuuge pointless debate midseason? Haters will hate, support what you love and let the rest fall into place. So far by team attendance we are doing a great job at speaking with our $$$ which is awesome. Paintball is not dying.... Go look at psp team sign ups, almost 200 teams already for the same venue haha

Don't even care what the scores are, who wins, and what the stupid stats are. It all has no relevance if I can't watch it happen.

Here is something for those who ***** about webcasts....

Pay to attend the events in person, if the industry cannot pay for ad space on webcasts it goes back to the lack of products being bought by players. Look at who pays full retail on items, it usually is new ones or woodsball folks. Players hate on different formats because they think it is something that will help another format.

LL5 & a national speedball event (NPPL Chicago Open) working side by side is probably only the one time a year both types of players gather to play at the same venue. Supporting the people who support the industry is needed at a point like now.

Posting a thread on a forum which will be archived sooner than anyone can even remember isn't going to change the situation the sport/industry is in.

Blame it on greed blame it on a league being better than another or anything else but it's players cutting their own head off wanting cheaper & cheaper deals to play.
