Well I was causally walking back to the nppl field from chronic after shooting some pics of HK. Well I look to my left to see Gary in an Ironmen Uniform (gasp), then as I look onto the actual field I see either ryan or nick (dont remember honestly) in the snake 50. Im like well **** this is a good game i gotta see this. Well it seems all the back got shot out on the ironmen and either nick or ryan (agian not sure) is left by himself. Well I didnt recognize the team they were against but it seemed to be a 3 on 1 against one of the shows bros. Well after an intense snap shooting contest agianst all 3 opposing players, one of the other players tried to bunker him. Missed completely and the refs walked over and just automatically pulled the show player out. Now I see Gary start freaking out and then bryon benini also started freaking out. Now what I want to know is how the hell did the refs get away with such a bad call. Im pretty sure I heard Gary say it costed the ironmen the tourney. So basically... what brother was playing? who was the opposing team? and what happened afterwards? Just curios and want the full story. If one of the shows could answer it would be great.
BTW was it Danny Williamson that tried to bunker the shows player?
Anywho thanks in advance for the answer. Those refs sucked horribly.
Well You almost have the entire story correct!!
It was Ryan Shows left.. He had a 3 on 1 going and Danny Miller tried to bunker him.. He missed and ryan shot him three times.. Danny said he shot Ryan and the ref just walked over and pulled his arm band.. The ref that pulled the arm band was standing behind Ryan on the sidelines...Did not check or anything.. The Ref that was standing down field facing the player that tried to bunker Ryan called Ryan clean!
Yes this did caused us to be eliminated from the finals! THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I HATE THE 7-MAN FORMAT... X-Ball takes the refs out of it.
The reffing at this event was horrible! They called a one for one on me on another field for a hit on the hand and I wasn't even hit.. The player that was supposedly the one that shot me even told the ref at the end of the game that he had missed!
The entire event was standing in lines to play just a few minutes of paintball and to be reffed by such poorly trained and incompetent Ref's. No restrooms by the fields but all the way back at the players area!!!
I cannot believe that players want such stuff..I heard someone say that this event was the biggest paintball event in the World.. You have got to be kidding.. The World Cup at Disney is so much larger and by far busier. The PSP just tries and spread everything out instead of cramming it all together so it doesn't look like some kind of swap meet... Anyway.. You have the story about that crappy call..
