It only took one bankruptcy and one almost bankruptcy to finally have something good come out of NPPL. Please for all our sakes, keep it up!

I am glad to see some people who haven't caused harm to NPPL in the past and hopefully know what they're doing are now in the leadership roles.

Although I always accept criticism as well as appreciate the support, the main point of this thread is to offer ways to communicate with the new staff at the NPPL.

It's always fun to talk about the past and reminiscence about good and bad times. We can try and figure out what went wrong or right with the NPPL but I think the best thing right now is to work together to move forward as a sport.

Running and promoting events is a thankless job, and many people in our industry shoulder the responsibility because someone has to provide the service for everyone else. These people are often looked at harshly for decisions they may or may not have made. Chuck H.(NPPL), Lane W.(PSP), Chris R (NCPA/APPA). all have haters and supporters. I respect each of them for what they have done, and continually do to carry on the torch and put on quality National events.

I hope to continue with the success of the NPPL and do my best to earn respect from all stakeholders.

The NPPL has failed 3 times. It has become expected. Why should people put trust in you if you do not care to at least acknowledge the miss steps from the past and, in doing so, prevent those from happening again? Why is it so hard to address the public opinion that you are not capable if people only have your own history in the NPPL and here on PBN http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3353909 as a means to judge? The rumors have done their damage so why not at least try to clear your name and offer a perspective going forward that doesn't just sell "for the good of the sport"?

I'm not trying to stir anything up. I do feel however my questions are reflective of others. I think a responsible figurehead would answer those fair questions rather then attempt to sidestep them or sweep them under the rug.

what are you going to do differently now? obviously what the nppl has been doing has not been working. For me to continue to pump my hard earned cash into entry fees, paint, traveling, hotels, and the like, it would be fair to know what your idea and plans are moving forward.

I don't have any issues talking about my past or the history of the NPPL. I've answered all questions asked of me. I did multiple interviews 5 years ago when Pacific Paintball failed. Honestly, I really don't know what else there is to talk about concerning that. But if you have new questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

As far as what's new with this new direction of the NPPL, my plans are to strip away some of the "flash" and concentrate on the nuts and bolts of a quality paintball event. Work on the overall experience with relationship to the referees, costs and quality of the events. Once we build back a consistent and solid base then we can add back some of the "fun" features of the events. If we concentrate on the on-field experience first, the rest can fall into place.

Thanks for responding. I can imagine answering the same questions repeatedly could be annoying but I see it as part of the job. Chuck bringing you back for the second time obviously speaks volumes of his trust in you.

I'm really happy that Shawn is responding and has a staff that is willing to answer emails and phone calls... I spoke to Shawn about the direction of the league and I'm excited about where it's headed. Shawn really has a good, optimistic, attitude and I really hope everything works out.

What does the NPPL plan to do about the D2 division at NEO?? There are 3 teams registered but I know the TCP one of the 3 teams has dropped out. Bringing the total of D2 teams to 2. Are they planning on merging D2/3 or what?

I already told you, they'll just make the 2 D2 teams into "pro" teams.

Jon- I answered you directly about the D2 teams already, but I wanted to make sure to post here as well. If you have further questions please let me know.

Thanks!
