??? X Games ???

I was wondering if it would be cool if paintball was in the X games l (ike skateboarding and BMX). It'll be cool to see it on t.v as well as in person more and would grow the popularity of the sport. But then I thought that it would get over popularized and become another fad and become too popular and that would suk because the fields would be over run by noobs. What do you guys think would it be cool or is this a dum idea?

THANKS

i think many fields are already teeming with noobs. Its been talked about thousands of times putting it into the x-games. I personally think it should.

I love how all of you guys talkk about noobs, But you seem to forget that a time ago you were considered a noob. and I think it would be a great idea for the sport.

Paintball in the x-games will never work. Seen too many petitions asking xgames to consider paintball, but to no avail.

Paintball doesnt even have a national set of rules. NPPL vs. PSP rules. until that can be fixed, Paintball will never be a mainstream sport like football or basketball

X Ball in X Games... As someone said it wouldn't work it is a team sport but it would be nice to see the sport grow and yes maybe it would be overrun with "noobs" but everyone even the pros were "noobs" at one point, people will get better.

on the subject of the wave of n00bs to follow the broadcast of xball:

think of it this way,
more n00bs on the field, more things to shoot at.
