Paintball in X-Games? What you think??

Do you think that paintball should be in the X-Games? I personally think its more extreme than most of the sports in it, but thats just imo.

Discuss...

and if possible how could we get paintball onto the x-games and it be televised?

the X game i thought was more for skating, boarding, and biking. Paintball is a team thing and the X games is more of an individual contest.

As said 437254237504375043750 times, it is unlikely because it is unlike all the other sports at the X-Games, because all of the current events are based on judges, whereas paintball is not.

the xgames arent the place for paintball, it would be seen as more of a side show and not taken seriously. it might b extreme but its just not the same format as other xgames sports

very true, but if they base the paintball games on points then it may work. Also the x-games is for xtreme sports and paintball is deffinatley an extreme sport.

thats what i was thinking. they should somehow get a bunch of pro teams to agree on some kind of format that the public will understand more than a regular scoring system.

I think its going to happen within the next 2 x-games, if most of you watched the demo on the new moneyball format, they said they were taking videos of the format to send to the xgames reps to look it over.
