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 there...so why would the X-games feature it if it lacked attention by the people?
