Counter coaching is great and is allowed in any sport ever invented besides like ****ing polo or some ****. Get over it. I couldn't believe how hyped Vicious got at the counter coaching at the NCPAs in 2012. Name a sport where crowd participation isn't negative at some times, and positive at other times.

If theres coaching then Counter Coaching should be allowed. But I think they should take out coaching all together when the buzzer buzzs. We all saw how badass RL was then they took out some coaching and BOOM THEY SUCK! You couldve never of played paintball and have someone say shoot left and there you go 3 kills. I'm not saying coaching makes you good at running and gunning or anything but if someone tells me to shoot left and I do then it wasnt my skill WHATSOEVER because all i did was sit there with my thumb up my *** and wait for someone to enter the commands.

Counter coaching is honestly hilarious to watch. At EPL we had a guy telling a rival team member he was hit on his hopper. The kid literally spent a minute looking for the hit before he was bunkered. Needless to say they lost the match. Never drop your gun and always make sure whoever is coaching you has a distinct voice to drown out all the BS spectators.

counter coaching is week as ****. if a random guy in the crowd does it, thats one thing. but if thats part of your team's strategy, there should be some penalties involved and i'd consider it cheating.

It's called using everything to your advantage Pakistani. If your gay enough to coach then I'm gay enough to counter coach. If you don't like it don't play paintball.

You're an idiot....as are most of the other comments in this thread. If you think coaching diminishes the integrity of the game you clearly have no idea what is going on in paintball, or what separates good and bad paintball teams. It has nothing to do with coaching. It's just like any sport, it's a variable in the game, but by no means does it minimize the skill involved. I guarantee you if you gave a good D2 team no coach and D3 team a coach the D2 team would still win every match.

The growing problem I see with paintball is a bunch of non-competitive, whiny non-athletes play and then ***** about things like counter coaching. It's a sport, you have sidelines, you have fans, you have crowd participation. It's going to happen. Learn to deal with it....it's called separating the good players from the bad.

This is how professional sports are done:

hahahahaha. Did I say coaching makes you a better or worse player? No. Did I say it increases or diminishes the integrity? No. Coaching makes the sport both easier and harder depending on situation. Why is coaching good for the players? Wouldn't you like to see what those players can do solely working together instead of someone yelling commands because they have a better field of view? Why do you think NFL turns off the Qb's headset when the game starts? Because it would be unfair/easier to say you have a guy open down left field throw the ball, just like a coach saying shoot back center or wrap in.

That was probably the loudest counter coaching I have ever heard. I can't imagine how any of the players were verbally communicating. It was pretty entertaining as a spectator though

counter coaching is what people do when they're scared their team is going to lose. if your team is good enough, you wouldn't need to try to win from the sidelines. i.e. if you or someone coaching your team is counter coaching, everyone knows you suck at paintball. people who are actually good at paintball don't need to do that crap.

Counter coaching is pathetic no matter how you want to look at it! No it's not against the rules but its for people that can't win through skill. These guys are the true definitions of scum. Every kid on the team they were counter coaching spent a lot of money just like everybody else there. All for these guys to come and try to sabotage everything they have been working and practicing hard for. Just so everybody knows I was the guy in the video yelling at them. Yeah I'm the guy that "shoots a Tippman 98" so the FAT **** on the chair said... Even though my team and I just took 1st place at MAO this weekend in D3X! I'm glad this video was takin so people can see how these little boys have to try to win.

Yea so basically as long as your willing to face consequences whatever they may be please be my guest.

That's how I always looked at it when I was at lower division games which seemingly is event after event is where this happens, every day of every event.
