I did get a kick out of the equipment segment, when they made reference to the "Ammo Pods" and "Ammo packs"...

Still good to see the sport on mass media TV, its a start. Although this was no more than a blip on the screen.
agreed.

We anticipated it wouldn't be what everyone expected, and honestly until you are behind the scenes of what goes into a 30 minute show - you do have all kinds of ideas of what you want it to be - and then reality sets in. The audience is bigger than paintball players and so there is some need to catch the base up to what they are seeing - that and had we just covered the one event - a lot of what made the season a season would have been lost.

When we started this season, we had a to do list - things we were determined to accomplish to make this season THE breakout season for the RaceTo Format in New England Paintball. The list was long but included highlights such as, fill a locked league, make it affordable, make it interesting, film and broadcast matches, reward not just the teams but the players who left it all out on the field with individual achievement awards and uh...... get this all on television. Yeah, we had some pretty lofty goals.

Some background on The NEXL this year. In seasons past, teams had always been given the opportunity to register for as many events as they wanted to play - and every event would in turn have a winner at the end. Great for teams that were looking to just play an event or 2 hard for the teams committed to the league and for the league itself. This year teams had to commit, for the entire season and they did - 27 of them. We had 15 Division 3 Teams and 12 Division 4 teams.

Scheduling was also different. Instead of teams registering and meeting the same teams from event to event, we spread the schedule out over all 5 events, meaning that some teams would only ever play each other once in a season, maybe twice depending on the division. At the same time we ran the top 4 teams in playoffs at the end of each event to allow for a winner per event that would result in per event rankings, rankings that resulted in an end of the Season Champion - who would not just take home the title - but the BIG season ending prize. Matches that were played on the main field saw players tracked and the top 3 players in each match were awarded Committed Star Points - with guns from Planet Eclipse and Empire Paintball on the line for the overall Top 3 Committed Players of the Season.

Going into the TV show, this is what you are seeing, the culmination of an entire season at the last event of the year. We wanted to include as many of the leagues teams and players as possible which is why it's not quite just an event show as much as it is a show about the league. We are beyond excited about what this means for the future, with a pilot under our belt and our players getting their names and faces on television all across New England on NESN, THE top Sports Channel (Home of the World Champion Boston Red Sox no less!!) not to mention PAINTBALL being presented in a fun and educational manner in homes and bars everywhere .....on a Saturday and a Sunday Night! We had some lofty goals alright.... and the beauty of it all is that you can actually WATCH how it all turned out

The show being the summary of the entire league and those who won BONE was great. It was nice that they also involved the families and the individual players who worked hard all season. The league overall worked well....the locked roster, reffing, coverage, and ect was perfect and I hope it all carries over to next years format.

Ps- Also like that it gave the D4 guys some nice shots...we definately felt left out with the whole Social Paintball incident

I know Social was trying to make amends, it was unfortunate what happened and I know they felt really bad about it - hopefully it prevents it from happening to anyone else in the future.

And as far as next year goes, breaking news: We have signed on with NESN for 6 episodes covering the entire season, starting at the Combine

watched it. you know how most TV is 22 minutes of show and 8 of commercials? this was the exact opposite. Its 22 minutes of commercial and 8 of actual content... at least if felt like it
I appreciate the effort but it falls short for me.

im glad to hear you have an agreement for more episodes. i think that with more of a time slot you can do a lot more with the show. I'll definitely have it set on my DVR.

Im just glad there was a "Season 2 of The Roster" commercial to remind me a new episode came out so I could stop watching this and go watch that.

I realize with anything that is being targeted to a large audience there has to me a bit of back story and "just tuning in" information, but this seemed a bit excessive to me. But hey, I also have never produced a TV show.

I too appreciated the effort, sounds like next season might be better but it did appear to be a 20 minute commercial with 8 minutes of interviews and under 2 minutes of footage. I would have liked to see at least the last few points of the last finals game in D3.

Other than that my only complaint was that it was on at 11:30, which was probably a cost thing, but It makes for a pretty small audience of whom are most certainly players in the league already.

Sounds like you guys have some great plans for next season though so maybe you can take some of what people commented on and really put something good together.

This is exactly what paintball needs for mainstream exposure, great job BP/NEXL/Dirty Water TV. Obviously players only care about watching matches but what's really important here is getting the non-paintball general public involved in what we do. This episode was great, hope to see many more.

.

Stop relaying messages to the general public that this isn't a sport.

This was not good. You can talk about how it needed the explanations for the larger, less informed, public demographic, but it honestly doesn't matter if it comes off about as cool as local monster truck rally coverage.

I love paintball and I turned the channel. I can't imagine someone who knows nothing about paintball stayed glued to the screen.

But I'm glad they picked you up for expansion next season. I hope that means I'm wrong about level of viewership, I really do.
