anybody from MA want in on HB on a pump team? we are looking to do this and have a few openings.

I think it would be great if we could swamp d.3 with pump teams at HB.

from what I hear NPPL isn't doing so well. Why get on a sinking ship if that is the case?

Tangent-

The TV thing never took off like they expected. People know what pro-paintball looks like and they pretty much said "who cares." This sport is not watchable no matter the format/#of cameras/or guns used. It's the ball problem. You can watch any of the major sports and follow the action because, there is one ball. The action follows the ball. Paintball has the problem of having thousand of them to follow. Not to mention the fact that we can't see any of them.

did you find this in a different forum find this dead thread and decide to copy paste someones elses own well thought out observation as your own???

anyways no one cares and nppl isnt dead

who cares if no one watches it on tv, nobody is at all impressed at your rant, because if you read the thread at all, you can probably tell that you have have no idea what we are talking about

There HAS to be some interest.

EvilAuthorityX- I'm going to go ahead and ignore the ill will and general "your stupid so shut up" response, that you probably would not say to my face if you had the chance.

as for why, they can't seem to get a handle on consistent reffing (search Joy Division). They just lost some big sponsors and their attendance for events outside CA is way down. No, their not going anywhere anytime soon but just like the rest of the industry, they've taken a hit from loss in player base. Only for them it seems to be hitting from all sides. Lack of players mean lack of entries, Lack of players means less money for industry sponsors to spend on events. Lack of TV means lack of outside industry advertisers (coke, Nike, Ford...).We do know that the industries is going through some hard times right?

dumberkid06- so your saying if 3 teams register, NPPL will still have the same type of events their having now. Please clarify
