Well who knows if the Cup is actually going to happen now that Forest no longer works for CPX.

The reason we're talking about it this week is b/c people thought he got fired THIS WEEK!

Unless things have changed since Thursday May 1st, Forest doesn't work for CPX anymore and rumor has it that there is going to be a REF strike on May 3rd. And my source is very reliable.

BTW: Iím not trying to rag on Forest at all. I may have had my share of arguments with him but I would rather have him there running CPX then some corporate Idiot who doesnít know anything about running a paintball business.

forest is one of the icons in paintball and it is sad to see this happen

oh man, BE is going to have alot of people upset if they stop doing the CPSA and don't refund entry fees.

I realize forest has been big in chicagoland paintball for a long time... it just sucks that BE may be pushing alot of their customers away now. Maybe if business REALLY goes bad that they'll bring Forest back

Boycott BE products and CPX

E mail every paintballer on your mailing lists to steer clear of Brass Eagle, JT, View Loader, and Challenge Park Extreme.

BE has the opposite of the "Midas touch", everything they grab turns to sh*t.

View Loader is now a 3rd rate loader. JT products are over priced. And they stole CPX from the guy who dreamed it all up. When Forest showed me the plans for CPX in 2000 it had already been in the works for more than a year. Brass Eagle saw a goldmine and slimed their way in. BE is the bottom feeder of paintball, stay away from them and their products.

Here's my understanding of what happened...

Brass Eagle's (BE) "Yes Man" (I think he is the GM of CPX or something like that) that CPX has there got embarrassed when Forest came in his office and yelled at him. So then Forest called the president of BE and told him that the GM isn't running things right and that he needed to come to CPX and straighten him out. Well the BE president came in all right but he basically told Forest that his services are no longer needed at CPX and fired him.

That's what my inside source tells me and it's a very reliable source.

Also Butch didn't get fired and from what he was saying today he has no intension of quitting either.

From what I hear all the REFs that striked were blacklisted from CPX, if you don't know how CPX runs if your blacklisted your name is entered into the computer and when you try to sign in to enter the field the computer puts up a message and the teller won't let you in because your on their black list.

From what I heard from another source, which I don't really know the reliability of this one, all but 4 private games Saturday were refunded in full and the other 4 were refunded in half and the combined the 4 to make 2 large private games which were Refed by DV8. Speaking of which those guys are in a rock and a hard place in this one. They have obligations to CPX and Loyalty to Forest because of all his help over the years.

Thatís about all I got if anyone has anything else or thinks my info is wrong and would like to correct me go ahead and post it.

For Cocka40 team (warped generation) man you need to be quite and if i play at fox so much why are we high rnked then you after 2 events. In cpsa they just dont play at fox its all around the chicagoland area. Thats all im gonna say about that. "Just give it up," your making yourself look stupid
