hell id sign it, but id rather see it in the olympics...

too bad all the hippes think it promotes violence. I even wrote my senior paper on paintball.

Its just not gunna happen. Hate to be a pessimest or however you spell it, but if you dont play the sport or are around it alot, youll never appreciate it like the atheletes do.

paintball is a team game. x games are for skaters and stuff doing "runs" then they get graded on their run. paintball is team based. you need 2 people to play. there have been hundreds of these. they have never worked, and never will. sorry to be such a negative nancy, but its not gonna happen

It might work if you did a Xball style 1 on 1 capped at 10bps with 5min matches.

i think it should be in the x-games but i'm not sure if it ever will be.

Olympics would be nice. They have curling as a sport. . .why not paintball...geeze

yeah if curling -aka lifesize shuffleboard - can be in the olympics, even ping pong, then I dont see why paintball couldnt make it. Although ping pong is pretty bad ***. As for the X-Games I doubt it highly.

i believe clay-pigeon shooting is basically just more integrated within the American culture, and it's not really attempting to "shoot" another person. just a fake pigeon, nothing that can actually be harmed. paintball just hasn't reached that level yet,
