the thing is that they are adults and professionals. The language isnt nessicary from a bunch of 17 year olds. and if there are young guns teams playing, well uve seen how young some of them are. just think if u were a company looking to get the word out about ur company and say its GPL that u sponsor.

u dont want people watching 13-17 year olds curse on the field about bad calls and make big scenes.

I wasn't aware that the no cursing rule applys off the field?

Post above^ the cursing was done away from the field which is why I'm confused.

Maybe you should learn what happened. If you had been paying attention you would know it was the left shoulder first of all, and the call came from the fifty ref on the dorito side. He saw the paintball break on your player's shoulder as he passed snake 2, which was completely visible from that side of field. And the fact that there was no hit (I don't know if there was or wasn't) doesn't mean a thing. If a ref sees a paintball hit you and break, but it doesn't leave a mark, you are still out. So I think I might have a pretty good idea what happened on the field because I was on the field, and not for hailstorm.

i was good on paint but 60 for that paint pissed me off. they kept swelling in my breech in between games and i kept choping. if u own a freak barrel ull kno that if u get a break, it wont self clean for the love of god and ur f'd unless u have a good swab on hand.

that cost me a few games..

The field paint was really bad.
I literally threw them at the ground from above my head and they just bounced.

And yes, they charged $60 for that stuff.

But I am sure you are one of those people who know all the rules, but never bothered to look at them. Then all the captains were told this as well at the captains meeting because we had some huge, non-paintball, outside sponsor looking to invest in the sport for the teams, but I am sure you probably were not paying attention at the meeting either. Then when you player was asked to watch his mouth, said ok, then did it again, I guess 3 warnings was not enough.

Then myself, Cyndi, Eric Holland and Rick Guyer even spoke to you team and told you how to handle the situation that would have settled the issue and would have gotten you player to come back and play. BUT, once again your teams did not listen at all. I personally witness 2 players go back up to Rick and get in his face. We told you what to do, but I guess you were either too stuburn or just plain stupid to listen.

Your player was asked to leave after 3 warnings. Not sure what you meant by huge mis-hearing or understanding since the player when I personally went with Rick out to talk to the player and the player apoligized many, many times and admitted he did it and he was wrong. Also after the player apoligized to Rick, he was told that it goes no farther, he can not play the rest of the day, but the issue is over and forgotten. Then Rick told him the team was doing good and beat Ether with 4 as he brought the player back to the field to watch the games.

Best of sucess to you and your team elsewhere.

Plain and simple rick hates us for no reason, i saw people smoking mad weed all over the property this event and we simply tried to go up to him and say listen here ricky, theres worse stuff going on here then saying the word ****. so even on the topic of something else he cursed at us and wouldnt listen. and we did listen to you bryan we didnt go over to rick a certain member from another team did who we happen to be friends with. once rick said nothing was going to change then we went over there.

I figured since you verbally abused one person and made slanderous sexual reference against another person that you were man enough to stand behind you accusations. If you not man enough, just let me know.

If the referee witnesses the ball hit and break and leaves less than a quarter size it will be considered a valid hit.
Directly from the GPL Rulebook section 19.01.
Maybe you should read the rulebook before you come to the tournament. So how about you don't post anymore?

i dont really care i'm just saying what i was told. theres really no reason to be disrespectful. your supposed to be a gpl rep.. and if your going to call people immature you should atleast not be immature yourself.

to 357^

and dont hate cause we smashed. we showed more heart that any other team in the event. all the teams came up to us telling us it was our event. even eather. to all the teams. i personally think if you ask any other team they will said we played better. and i'm not saying that to be a dick. i'm just saying if we had a 5th we would of won. every1 said that. if all we got out of the event was respect i would of been happy. we managed to get soooo much respect and a1's. it works for me but i would of loved getting 1200$ as opposed to 600

all the team that were in the finals were amazing and there all great great guys. we all had nothing but love off the feild.

navy was the nicest bunch of guys i've met in paintball and deff look foward to playing them again.

But there was a reason for you to be disrespectful? Sorry I am smart enough to check out my information before I go bashing someone else.
