Exclamation Made- I want to be a Paintballer

For those of you that don't know, "made" is a show on MTV that takes certain people who are interested in changing or trying something they have always wanted to do, usually with the help of a expert or proffesional in the particular sport etc...Well anyways Everytime I see this show I'm waiting for there to be a paintball episode, but there never is. And I think that as big as we (the paintball community) are that we should try and do something or contact the show and get our sport some major exposure.

just putting the idea out there...I'm sure this has been on some other people's minds before too.

Yeah, you are right. I'm wondering why they haven't done that yet. More than likely, its because paintball is still young. You have to keep that in mind. Not many people consider it to be a sport. Even though it is, and I shoot people 3x as hard for saying it isn't a sport.

Thats a great attitude. Punish those who don't share your beliefs. Precisely the reason paintball has such a bad rep. Many players are just idiots who really have no sense of morality and respect.

but if you think about, how many countries would even be competitive in that, if you can truly name more than 5 then you got me

and I mean teams that would be able to keep up with the top pro teams because those are most likely the people that would go and compete

shut up. "shoot people 3x as hard" your an idiot.
Made wont do paintball, because it will be some fat out of shape loser that plays WOW al day wanting to be a paintballer, and the made people would need to buy him at least a decent gun and good equipment, and he would most likely not even know anything about the sport.

And what would you do? Dress the subject up in the AGGEST HK gear and hand him a brand new hot pink SL8R? That's not someone being "made", that's handing someone some free gear, an ego, and a gun, just adding one more epic douchebag to the already large cesspool of douche that is tournament paintball today (because I know none of you care to see MADE: Woodsball). Furthermore, the LAST thing paintball needs is to be on MTV and become even more trendified than it already is.

Stop making these threads. If you want to promote the sport, follow these simple steps:

1) SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHOP - Stop buying online, if your field isn't making money, it isn't going to stay open, and you won't have a place to play

2) 90% of you are from fairly affluent middle class families. You would have to be to be able to spend $70 or more on one day's recreation. Stop pretending you're from the ghetto. It does not make the sport look good to prospective parents with 10 year old kids.

3) Be nice to the new kids, offer them help, show them the ropes, and for goodness' sake realize that bunkering a 10 year old with a rental does not make you cool, funny, or badass in any way.

This thread has been made maybe two days ago. Anyway..it won't happen...1) it's way too much liability for MTV to take. 2) Paintball isn't considered a sport by the majority 3) It just wouldn't be that fun to watch and/or promote the sport really. Because the whole thing about MADE is they take the complete opposite person who would get into that kind of thing, and MAKE them into that person. So for paintball it'd probably be some super prissy rich girl (like the girl who wanted to be a snowboarder) or actually poor girl...cus they'd spend half the episode showing her working side jobs making money for paintball.

Although fencing, table tennis, Badminton, and shooting may be considered "NOT EXTREME" in your eyes. But they take an intense amount of talent and athletic ability (at least the first three, I think shooting just takes talent and skill...not so much athletic ability...unless it's that one where you ski and shoot). I personally consider tournament paintball a "regular sport', but you gotta keep in mind paintball in comparison to a lot of the other sports...is a VERY new sport and acceptance as a sport as opposed to just a game in the eyes of the majority of the world will take some time...and may never happen...just be prepared to accept it.

Source (dictionary.com)
Definition of a "sport"

1. an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc.


Definition of "game"
1. an amusement or pastime: children's games.
3. a competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more persons who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators.

Definition of "paintball"
1. A GAME in which players on one team seek to eliminate those on an opposing team by marking them with a water-soluble dye shot in capsules from air guns.

Definition of "fencing"
1. the art, practice, or SPORT in which an épée, foil, or saber is used for defense and attack.

Like I said...it will be a long time (if ever) when the majority of the world sees Paintball as a SPORT...as opposed to a GAME. Although very closely related (basketball is a sport, but you play a basketball game), there still is a difference.
