There is no rulebook, its the way it is, paintball is NOT extreme. You cannot die from paintball more then you can die from football. People want to watch skateboarding on a halfpipe or bmx biking, not paintball, its not exciting to them. Every other jump on a half pipe can be your last paintball: you get a welt...Ahh. Run. A welt. its not extreme, it never will be in the X-Games, nor will it be in the olympics. PS: Your saying a surfer never recived a concussion?
great point, if you don't play paintball, its not really all that exciting to watch. Even if you are actually why would the X-games feature it if it lacked attention by the people?

That would only work if the changed the format of the x-games to suit paintball because in the x-games they have heats and jams while in paintball we have matches it would take allot of program time and would be a real in convinience to the people that runt he x-games but in the olimpics total posibility i mean come on ping pong is an olimimpic sport so why cant paintball be 1 that just my 2 cents

paintball will not be in the olympics anytime soon. hate to break it to yall. . . the olympic athletes are CONSTANTLY being drug tested and have to watch EVERY single thing they put in their bodies. . . they can get disqualified for taking cold medicine for christs sake. . . that means no more going out and gitting drunk after an event with the guys, no more drugs of any kind(if that is you fancy), you practically have "big brother" watching over your EVERY move. . . now i dont know about you but im not gonna put myself thru that kinda HELL just top win ONE event. . . ill stick to the NPPL, PS, NXL, and other leagues to play. . .
Tournament paintball is not a game; it is the culmination of sacrifices of people's lives.

agree with that 100%.
i hope it never fits in with "mainstream" sports. i hope its never mainstream at all.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
