The truth is that many of us couldn't give two ****s about whether this guy played paintball, or whether IE was unfair in its reporting. It doesn't matter, and it is doubtful that this will affect paintball in a noticeable way.
agreed. like i was saying in a [unbelievably long] comment war on their page to some radical-sounding hypocrites: if we all firmly believe that Inside Edition are a bunch of hacks and not a real news organization, then what is the value of their approval?
i'll be damned if i'm gonna come crying to non-journalists for approval that they are not qualified to give. we deserve more than these national inquirer wannabe's approvals. WE know that what we do is legit, instead of barking like mangy dogs why not quiet down like wolves and keep doing what we're doing? Abraham Lincoln was an artist when it came to knowing the value of holding one's tongue. and another great president named Teddy Roosevelt said "speak softly and carry a big stick". My big stick is a first-gen PMR, i f'ing love it and i'm gonna use it regardless of what the media says.
The media hates paintball? Shocker.
