Absurd Statement of the Month right here!
Surely you are entitled to your own opinion... but I HIGHLY disagree. May I return to my first post, where if 187 Crew is , as you stated, an embarassment to professional paintball, what exactly is Omaha Vicious, Tampa Bay Damage, Hostile Intent, East Coast Killas, Hostile Kids, and a boatload of other teams names to the sport???
I could fill your computer screen with controversial team names in this sport.
Shall we pull Tipper Gore from the mothballs so she can lead the crusade to put Explicit Warning Labels on team names?
And to blame the PSP or any other sanctioning body is ludacris as well. They have no more authority over team names than the NFL does to stop the use of Native American lingo in their teams.
If you want Politically Correct names in paintball, perhaps you dont belong in paintball. I hate to turn people away from this sport, but if a team name bothers you enough to bring you here, the concept of the sport itself surely makes you cringe enough to not support the sport anyway.
Furthermore, what exactly brought you to this Thread some 5-6 months after it officially became yesterday's topic?
