D2 Finals @ Buffalo

Just wanted to speak my mind a bit on all the pbners saying that the NPPL and Sean don't care about the lower divisions. First off Sean came from XPSL which is a league more geared toward the lower divisions. Many people are stating that he cares more about tv than the lower divisions. That is not true, however the NPPL and its sponsors sunk a bunch of money into the fox sports net show. They did this to help put paintball in the mainstream. This show is aimed at the beginners who will eventually be the lower division teams. My team is playing in the D2 finals and i have no problem with playing at Buffalo the only drawback is that who ever looses will have a bad mindset going into the Buffalo event. If you guys can't tell just by going to an NPPL event that they are for the players than you guys are just blind.

Art, you guys played awesome at the event.

Wish you the best of luck throughout the rest of the year.

Only thing that made the event wack was that JT sold out of your damn Miami Rage shell's in under a hour...

I think Art was saying that he doesn't mind playing the D2 final games in Buffalo, given the circumstances.

Hey Art, this is one of the guys from go for broke, we got your number from one of your teamates and we will be having our team owner contact you to talk about this situation. We agree with the statement of whoever looses will have a mental low going into NY so we will see if we can come to some kind of agreement. Great playing with you guys again.

I spoke to my guys i guess they saw you guys on the way home. No problem have your owner call me. We can figure something out. You guys are great and the only thing that sucks about this is we could not get a pic on the podium for JT's front web page.

I think it's a terrible idea to have the finals played following the event.

One issue is perhaps a team cannot make the next event. I'm assuming both teams will be there, but what if one of the teams could not make it? Also, what about roster changes? Will the teams be able to jumble up rosters at all prior to the event? What about the layout, will they be playing on the Tampa layout or something new for Buffalo?

I just think it's unfair to take away the momentum from teams going into finals. I think it takes something away from the event, both for the teams and the spectators.

Am I correct that this was postponed due to an impending storm?

Then I really don't see the use in blaming anybody for weather. Could they have avoided the storm by not focusing so much on TV? Perhaps, but if there were no storm to begin with, this wouldn't be an issue. Player safety trumps all, IMHO.

barber, i agree with you 110%, it sucks they are gonna have to wait to play the games at the next event, but would suck a lot worse having someone severely injured or worse playing in unsafe conditions. as far as field layout, imo they should set up the center court field specifically for the left over games then change it back for the event

well the fact of the matter is, there was no choice but to play them later. the fields blew down before the game. that alone would have taken hours to fix.
