This is just you putting spin on what happened. Like I said, some companies chose not to support the players by not supporting the league, why would the league in turn choose to support those vendors and allow them to gain with nothing ventured? If you owned a trade show that costs you thousands of dollars to rent from the city, would you allow people who don't want to support you to make a hefty profit? If you own a building would you allow a business to move in and not pay rent? Vendors who were independent and happened to sell some products by vendors not supporting the league were allowed to set up and sell per the vendor contracts. There was nothing selective about it.

Kazer, I'm just wondering. Do u work for ccpaintball? If so, I want to know what exactly did NPPL tell you when they explained you couldn't sell PSP supporting products. When they made you take down eclipse, dye empire and g.I. products? They only allowed all other products and only allowed the sale of Valken and apx paint except for pro sponsored teams. I know evil was there, we came home with a case or 2 from cleanup in the pro paddocks. The person to have eclipse was GP and he wasn't allowed to sell.

But Frank had vanguard, Trent had luxe, Bob long had his truck and the vapor was there. What I was told at the event was empire and dye would be able to have a truck but would have to pay for their spot and not be able to sell. If that's true. That's BS. Tho this whole issue has been getting out of hand since last Vegas.

My statement is not me putting spin on anything, my statement is what I personally witnessed & had nothing to do with any manufacturers. CC Paintball (an independent vendor) was not allowed to sell any of the Dye or Empire products that they paid to transport to the site, while Trade My Gun (brand new DM12's) was selling products from the same manufacturer whose merchandise CC Paintball could not sell, a few hundred feet away.

If I owned a trade show, everyone would be subject to the same rules. If Company A is not allowed to sell products from Company D, then Company B & Company C would not be able to sell products from Company D either. The only people that seemed to be affected by NPPL's new policy, were their paying customers (vendors who were not allowed to sell their products, non-sponsored players who were denied access to tech's at the event + the paint of their choice) because of NPPL politics...not to mention the spectators & fans who were not allowed access to all of the products of their choice. I'm not trying to say that NPPL doesn't have a right to decide what paint sponsors they want to use, but the rules should be applied equally.

Avid was selling Planet Eclipse hard & soft goods. I believe that Avid is GP's company.

Trade My Gun is a league sponsor of the NPPL, that is why they were exempted. http://www.nppl.com/sponsors
And no Avid is not GP's company. It is owned by Ryan Grey who also works for Valken (Another league sponsor.)

That would be selective enforcement, which is wrong. Either way, this is way off topic.

Great pick up for Uprising, and a great opportunity for Nick.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
