How can you force them to leave nppl and pay $10,000? Sounds like horrible negotiating from PSP, some people get too greedy. More competition = cheaper prices = better quality paint from all vendors

I personally think redemption pro is some of the most reliable paint Ive ever shot and Id prefer that over GI any day of the week, even if GI was reasonably priced (or not as grossly overpriced as it is now).
Platinum & Pro is good stuff

PSP: "Hey guys, lets allow one of your competitors to sell paint here to! But don't worry, we'll make them pay more then you had to."

CURRENT PAINT SPONSORS: "Sure! As long as you can make more money, we'll be happy to take a cut in our sales!"

No business wants competition, regardless of the public face they put on. I can't see any reason for current paint sponsors to be happy about the decision to add another one.

I think the term Extortion was used loosely fellas

Why would one league be better than two responsibly and unshady run leagues?

Private business between private companies should remain private. Posting what is probably a pretty one-sided version of events on Facebook is an incredibly unprofessional thing to do.

But when Russian Legion who is sponsored by Valken, and one of the biggest names in the sport is told "Valken paint is not allowed" it's kind of a big deal

Did Valken actually sign a contract with PSP that says they are allowed to sell paintball? Sorry Valken I like your product but if you didn't sign anything with PSP, you are not an authorized dealer. Gino if you do in fact have a contract, you have nothing to worry about. My guess is that you don't, so you never had a deal.


Also if you recorded the call(and it was not left on your voicemail) without the guy knowing, you just committed Illegal Wiretap. Good luck with that.

If the PSP wants to be viewed as the premier professional paintball league, wouldn't it be prudent to have more vendors in order to have more spectators/players spend money when it comes to availability of products at your league than the other.

Do vendors pay money to have a spot in the vendor area? And if more vendors = more money, why deter Valken from being a vendor other than paint?

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.
