PSP NPPL merger

Whether or not they merge anytime in the future, do you think a merger would help or hurt paintball and why?

help, i would suggest they add some events and balance it out (as in same amount of venues in west,central,east usa). it would help because the stakes would be higher(only 1 pro,d1..champ)also it would get more spectators because of nppl and psp fans and of course more competitors.

It depends, It would help in the aspect of having one pro league rather than to... But there is always a down side too. It is in less places and would get rid of tournaments for people that like one or the other...

Honestly I would like to see something... I wish that PSP went to the west coast...


I know they thought about it but then could not agree.... They games are so different at this point... It may hurt the sport staying apart because it is so diverse.

But would it grow the sport at all?

I'd love to see paintball grow to the point where matches are held in football stadiums across the country/world and TV stations are having bidding wars over who has the broadcasting rights. The Championships would be called the Super Ball (get it?) and players would be signing million dollar deals.

One can hope, I guess...

Help. Prize funds could grow with more teams in one league. Amateurs might get a chance to make a couple bucks..maybe

Hurt.

Many teams are PSP or NPPL only for a reason. Personally, I have a 5 man team in the PSP. We play PSP because the events are WAY more common, often times cheaper because they're much closer, and it allows us to individually work on breakouts.

That being said, I'd like to join an NPPL team just because I LOVE 7 man. The way I see it, the more people on the field the better.

Many people I know don't like more people since it usually means more paint. You couldn't just merge 7 man and 5 man without some complaints.

The PSP is better off without the NPPL, and the PSP is dominating the tournament scene in the US. For that simple reason we shouldn't expect to see a merger anytime soon. If there's anything the PSP wants from the NPPL, it can wait for the league to die out and buy up any assets of interest.

If the NPPL were to die out would that allow the PSP to evolve in any way? Like host more events, make more revenew, etc.

Paintball is not a spectator sport, there are too many issue with the game structure to make it viewer friendly. Are you going to pay for nosebleed seats to a PSP event at Gilette stadium? God I hope not. Its just not a spectator sport, plain and simple and we need to accept that as a community and stop trying to change the sport, or change the viewers, or speculate growth. Look at the sport the way it is and if there is a business venture there for it, awesome. I hate seeing these threads that appear weekly about how we can change this, and mend that, and do this different, or play this format, or create a new style, or cap bps just so we can try to get paintball on tv. Ok that's my rant, I love the energy to grow the sport but sometimes we just get ahead of ourselves.

It means more potential sponsor dollars to expand and improve events as well as bigger tradeshows. The downside is that all the displaced 7-man players will expect the PSP to change the rules for them, a la NPPL, and hold expensive events in California.

eforce hit it on the nose. NPPL is a dying league, anyone who can't see it is deluding themselves. Their assets will get snapped up by PSP within the next 3 years if not sooner.

7 man? Had enough of a problem putting 3 together for local rookie ball.
