A refund of funds would be a tolerable outcome.

NPPL is really blowing it lately, or at least the negative press is making it seem so. I have never, EVER, heard of a game being replayed. Especially at the National level. the NPPL is shooting themselves in the foot. If i were Nurv I would decide to play the PSP, the NPPL doesn't deserve your talent and time if politics are going to keep popping up in major game decisions , thats my two cents

What a joke call. Never heard of you guys before, but its beyond ****ty to get ripped off like that, don't matter who you are.

I would have liked to believe that paintball was beyond that, but who am I kidding. When cheating and "playing the gray" is necessary to win, what do you expect out of the people who officiate the game.

I fought so hard to get to this series, we practice soo much, sacrifice soo much for what? For the game to be decided by the reffs? I have a huge problem with this....it makes me sick to the core that this happened. I have always been a staunch supporter of the NPPL. Everyone that knows me knows this.
My problem is with the GREY area of the rule book. The states that the outcome of the match can be ALTERED by the NPPL Ultimate reff if he deems the situation as an extreme situation.

this grey OPINION is what caused this entire situation. The player that was in the snake came out and didn't even argue the call. He knew he was hit. They told me that there was no evidence that that player was hit, and i said there was no evidence that HE wasn't NOT hit either. He could have scrubbed the hit, we don't know. All we know is that the reff admitted to the ultimate he made a call without all the information.
How is that an extreme circumstance?

Last tournament daniel on our team got 12 staples on his head inside the nppl fairgrounds. We agreed that for the sanctity of the sport, we would keep it under the radar. Daniel paid his hospital bills himself because he loves the sport. The NPPL did not offer to help him pay for the bills, nor did we deem it necessarry, till now.

Re do game was a mess. The reffs did not want to pull any NXN players out, because they didn't want to look bad twice. Our players gear was not ready for this redo game, out mental state of mind was in complete and utter shock!
we could not believe this was happening to us.

The ultimate reff Dave Zinkam kept telling me over and over again it was the right thing to do...for who? The other team? What about us? why are they punishing us for that? They say that a redo is fair for both teams but it isn't. Consider the mental ramifications that a team is going through after a call like this? You must be made of ICE to not let something like this affect you.
we were rattled off our game, im not going to lie, my head was not in it at all that redo game. I felt my soul was taken from me and stepped on. I could not play paintball.
My hands are shaking with anger as i type this. My eyes are filled with rage and tears and i don't know how to get rid of this. I play paintball because i love the sport, but what happened today is a culmination of everything that is wrong with reffing and the so called rules that govern this game.
That game should not have been replayed. Those reffs should have been taken off that field that minute that happened.

I want the NPPL to pay for daniel's medical bill, i want our entry fee refunded, and i want an apology and a solution for this situation.

I will not rest on this till i get the results that i want. I will defend my position vigourously and with as much passion as i have for this sport.

hate me all you want, but there are 7 other guys on this team that deserve more than what was given to them.

I want to be involved with the rules committe, to find a solution to this. I want the rule book to be re written with more black and white calls and less grey area. I think we as players deserve it. we pay so much money for a services and when it is not given to us, what do we do?

I was escorted off the premisses by a police officer today because i gave dan perez and dave zinkham a piece of mind and what i thought about their call. I saw them candidly conversing with each other patting each others backs and smiling like this was just another rightful decision made!
Well their decisions have consequences and i believe no thought was put into them. The ultimate's mind was already made up. The other teams coach got to talk to him before i even was able to say anything. Anytime i got close to the conversation i was quickly ushered away with threats of penalties.

I cannot stand for this and i won't. This broke my spirit like nothing i have ever felt before. These decisions are what tear teams apart...another casualty of paintball politics.

But that is not me. I refuse to be a statistic and i refuse to let this die, as i will more than likely be told by numerous people.

A great injustice has been done in the sport today and it just so happens that it happened to us.

NPPL, I hope you read this. Your system is flawed and needs to be revamped. this was by far the most unbelievable turn of events i have ever been a part of. Shame on you for allowing this.

Your reffs did not even know the correct protocol on what to do if a game needs to be replayed. They literally asked me what side i wanted to start from. why did they not know? Perhaps because it was not in the rule book to begin with.

This fly by the seat of your pants reffing is not good for the sport and i demand my money back. Your product is flawed, please take it back.

Sincerely
Fernando Melo

Captain of team NURV.

As long as teams sign up time after time and play still, NPPL wont do a thing.

Start to boycott them and move to another tournament series.

PSP should be a viable option vs NPPL .. diff format, and a better chance to totally avoid biased ultimate reffs that cause so much trouble when so much hangs on a single game.

As I'm sure you are telling the truth I would like to here Naught by Nature and the head ref side of the story.

But from what you are saying it looks like NPPL made an error that is to be more commonly found in small 3-man noob tournments.

I fail to see how this is NOT news. NURV is a D1 team that has been playing the tournament paintball for years, as well as the NPPL. They are a well established team, and there was an injustice done.

This certainly is more NEWS worthy than a new pair of ugly paintball pants. This thread is informing you of the crap politics that go into the NPPL.

Ferny, Iím sorry that **** went down. You and your boys deserve much better. See ya when ya get home.
