Boston Complaint

Overall, I thought Boston was a solid event. Decent vendors, decent reffing, Intel was cool, and there was a lot of traffic for the vendors. But all of this was decimated by the NPPL turf situation. The NPPL decided to lay the turf directly over asphalt, which seems to work out well enough. However there were sections of the fields in which there was no turf, but instead NPPL painted over asphalt to make it look like turf and just went with it. Painted over asphalt... They did it behind bunkers of all sorts.

To be fair, no one I heard of was seriously injured as a result, but I heard a large number of complaints. This is absolutely ridiculous. I hope that for the next turfed event NPPL takes some strides to fix this. Thoughts?

i saw that. he was on the ground grabbing his shoulder and had to be helped off by the ref. he looked like he was in a lot of pain.

I agree. Turf of a parking lot with no padding in between is pretty harsh. And they had to keep putting cocking between the turf to keep it together (might be fue to rain).

i personaly did not see this "painted asphalt" but if it was there that is ridiculous and should have never happened... but its done now and there isn't much to say except that better not happen ever again

what i didn't understand was i believe the back 3 fields were on a grass divider if i remember correctly, they should have placed the nppl center court there and in addition i think it would have been better if all 6 fields were placed closer together so more spectators could make it to all fields.

I meant to take a video of the painted asphalt when we were walking the fields but never got around to it. I noticed at least 3 decent sized patches on the Spyder field I think it was.

youd think they could find a park to host it in? not just put it over a parking lot. Next super 7 event will be hosted at Walmart located in the parking lot.


XL Turf FTW!

There was a large chunk missing on the empire field on the snake side. You have to actually be on the field to notice it, or else it is very tough to spot.

I saw this many many times while walking the fields. You would think that after forking over an enormous amount of money for entrance fees, that we wouldn't have to put up with this type of bull****.

I also noticed some extreme inconsistencies with the reffing between each individual field. On the angel field, a ref was all over one of our players, and a ball bounced off of his hopper. The ref called him out and our player said "That ball bounced," and the ref said "Yeah, I know. It still hit you though, so you're out." Complete ****ing bull****.
We were also told on almost every field that if we left the gate early, and even attempted to tag back up, regardless of whether or not we shot a ball, they would call a one for one. Our last game on the eclipse field, someone on the sidelines shouted "GO!" early and one of our palyers left. He called himself out and walked to the deadbox. One of the refs came running into our deadbox and said "Hey, you know you could have just tagged back up, right?"
I must say though, this ref was one of the most straight-up, polite refs we came across all day. He was doing the arm bands on the side of the eclipse field that was near the chronic field. I think he was Irish or something.

My team will now be playing X-ball though, I can say that for sure.

yeah, one of our players is deaf and watches for the heads refs hand signal. One game one the spyder field he went on the hand signal and the refs pulled a 1 for 1, on top of that in the same game one of our guys got shot in the front of his halo while sliding in snake and they said he was playing on because he didn't get up fast enough and pulled another 1 for 1. Needless to say we lost.
