I would love more then the next guy to see paintball in the xgames and now that they have surfing it wouldnt be the first team sport to be in. The only reason I dont think it will make it in there is because its really not to exciting to watch and isnt really much of a spectator sport. I mean to the masses watching a run through no nowhere near as amazing as someone doing a double back flip on a 200 pound motorcycle.

redzballer you make no sense at all, ou flipped flopped on what you stated so many times, just read your stupid posts. To solve the whole team thing how about one on ones with the best players included? That would be a start.

As Chessy as this sounds,

Was it not just two years ago and a backflip on a dirt bike was not possible? Well now if you are in the X-games(in any freestlye event) and you dont throw down a back flip you wont even qualify. It is possible to have it in the X-Games. It would also be more of just showing clips of the championship match, they would'nt show the whole tourny. If they could make enough money off of paintball in the games to make a substantial profit they will put it in there. Regardless if it is a team sport or not. And for the record, Skatebording and BMXing can also be a team sport(just not the way it is set up in the x-games.

And i couldnt leave this out. First off paintball is and Extreame sport. Just take your dictionary and shove it, I don't care what the deffinition says. Ask any guy on here and he will tell you,pb is considered around the world as an extreme sport. But if you would like to talk about the true deffinition. I believe part of it said "dangerous". Although we wouldn't call it dangerous, wouldn't you consider shooting projectiles at other people atover 280mph a Little on the extreme side. And Golf is a sport too. HOw about you pull that dictionary back out of your *** and look up what a sport is. It will probly read somthing like " an engagement between two or more people on two or more different sides competeing for a single goal" (made that up but let me know).

So how about next time you are gonna make your self look like an idot, you at least to a little bit of research first. k pumkin?

Damn, you got me, i look like a real "idot". If your going to criticize someones intelligence, at least learn to spell. And of course, i mean, getting hit with a gel capsule at 200 MPH(If you were referring to miles per hour its 200, feet per second is 280.) is just so much more extreme then boing a backflip on a motorcycle 50 feet in the air, right? Im sure you think im a euphemist(witch i am not)but as you asked, i "pulled the definition of sport out of my ***":

"Sport (spôrt, spōrt)
n.

Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively.
A particular form of this activity.
An activity involving physical exertion and skill that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often undertaken competitively.
An active pastime; recreation."

Ok seems right...So whats the dispute? Oh thats right, absolutely nothing.

Stock, if you don't get adrenaline rushes from paintballing, then I don't think the sports for you.

That being said, I do agree with him though. It's sounds good in theory, it's just not going to happen. Just like it's not going to become a diverse high school sport. Again, i'd love to see them both happen, they just won't. Too many degenerates believe that it's dangerous (as far as school goes), and It may be considered an "extreme sport" but I just don't think it qualifies as an X Games sport. I'm with StockImpulse on this one.

I think paintball would be great in the x games except it most likely won't happen. the thing is everyone is saying its a team sport and theres no team sports in the x games where actually there has been. ever heard of doubles skateboarding on the vert. two skateboarders (a team) would go and do doubles, just trying to get the point across that if its an extreme sport that teams would be able to get into x games.

You cant really say that. Theyre including Rallying now, which, while requires a driver and codriver, and a team to upkeep the car. Also, there isnt a high injury rate in Rallying.

That is unless ur T. Past. rolling Brand new $100k STis Left and Right.

**** this is a little off topic but it would be so cool if schools could make paintball teams and compete against other schools. you'd prolly have to have your own gear and pay for at least half of the cost to get on but it would be so worth it.

back to the topic. yeah paintball isnt really a, shall we say, extreme "spectator sport" thats probably why its called the xgames because it is very extreme looking. paintball is rather boring to watch unless you got great camera angles and editing skills. but yes it would be hilarious to be at the olympics and hear an announcer go "silence please. anton fischer is about to attempt a 30 foot pole vault" and then a buzzer sounds and guns start rolling.

i think balls flying around at 300fps, guns shotting 20 bps, players diving in to bunkers is xtreme.

You sound like my basketball coach. Paintball is a "real" sport. It takes athletes. Think about it.

And if the X-Games didnt allow team sports, they might as well get rid of Surfing then...

No
most people think that just because we have "X-ball" we should be in x-games.

but most of the noobs that think that don't even know what the hell xball is.

anyway xgames are way different and should NOT include paintball.
