Xgames

why hasn't paintball hooked up with the Xgames. Its an extreme sport so why hasn't it joined. I am pretty sure the teams would like the national exposure.

it's not individualized enough for the xgames nor big enough

it has nothing to do with it not being big enough. its alot bigger than most of the sports in the xgames. but in the xgames the athletes are judged but judges. they dont compete head to head in a competition like a paintball game or xball match.

I wonder if the idea has ever brought up to them? Most of the sports in the xgames were not that popular until the xgames. Maybe a team sport would be a good change for the xgames. If I was in the legal side of paintball I would be all over trying to sell my sport to the xgames

well have you ever notice how they favor the big names ie shwan white or andy mcdonald over the smaller named people. Maybe no judges would be better.

We can always hope though. That would be amazing if X-games had paintball.

everything in the x-games is an individual sport and is either judged or is a race [rally car and boardercross among others]

paintball is a team sport that you can't judge

paintball =/= x-games sport

who cares if everything else is judged, they need to make a change because paintball is an extreme sport, and needs some extreme exposure
