What do you think the future of paintball looks like at the current economic moment? Do you see the major leagues folding all together? Do you feel confident your team and organization will make it through this tough period?

Not quite sure what a dry pancake is, but I imagine its not so nice.

No new sponsors for '08. We use only the best products still: Draxxus, V-Force and of course Smart Parts.

As for the poor economic situation currently in the United States, it will ultimately significantly injure many companies and teams. The effects are being felt through the pro ranks, with big name teams such as the Raiders, Strange, and even long time contender Trauma closing up shop. Three years ago, these thoughts would not have been considered, but they are becoming realities now. Fortunately, some companies are still doing fairly well. The large organizations are still selling products and the fields are still getting players. For whatever its worth, the economy is hurting at the moment, but we're not a third world country and being forced to wait in breadlines and eat potato soup.....not yet at least People are simply being a little more cautious with money and spending. Honestly, in my opinion, the current economic situation simply put paintball back into its proper spot and brought players back to reality and provided a head check for everyone. Pros don't help sell enough guns and aren't on ESPN and are not in USA Today. Therefore, we should not be getting paid millions of dollars and living the rockstar life. BUT, what this year has done is scraped out the barrel and left the hungry players that play for the game and thrills of competition, not the paychecks and limited glory and "fame." The leagues should be okay, because teams still love to compete. The venues might not always be as lavish and glorious, but if there's netting, bunkers and another team, the competitors will still show up to play for pride.....no matter when or where.

Hopefully that answers your questions. (I just finished writing a business law paper, so I was in an extra "wordy" mood)

Well, Dry pancakes... pancakes without syrup or butter or anything. If anyone would bring it...they wouldn't be allowed to eat pancakes. You got all those sweet new food machines, maybe we can configure one to make pancakes.

but on another note... that was an amazing essay Tim and one that I think should be read by every paintball player out there.

ps: thanks for workin the buzzer today at aapp.

Hey Tim, I know a bunch of people have been wondering this, and I'm not sure if it's been answered already, but why isn't Federov on the roster for Phoenix?

I also just wanted to say good luck to you and the team this year. One of my teammates and I are working registration for Phoenix so we'll be rooting for you guys. We'll probably be at NEO too since it's at AAPP and somewhat close to school.

How many guns do individual players go through each year? I know everyone on ND still has the same Shockers as last year, I'm wondering what you guys do?

Most guys only use two guns throughout the year. We each have a main gun and a back up gun that we use during the tournaments.
