"so does that mean no more 7man? and no more HB? everyone was talking about unification, but i bet this isnt what was expected... what a historic (and sad) day in paintball"

paintballing will make a huge turn around. and when it does, it will become larger and wider known. We'll get new players, new talent, and more people to pwn.

I think that if paintballing has to stay on the National level podium, ALL of the parks and organizations and companies need to stand and support paintballing. we have to stand ground NOW that paintballing will never die.

hopefully, the idea is to get a new format that will make paintball a LEGIT sport. one rule book, one format, one way to play. The psp can't continue to thrive off the east coast (i.e. 4 events over there) if they really wan to make money.

-A big reason there isn't nearly as much xball players out west is simply because they don't come out here. And with our wonderful economy how can we afford to fly cross country to four events and on top of that miss an entire WEEK of work.

maybe if paintball has ONE format and an international standard so hopefully our sport can grow into tv, make real money, and just maybe even the olympics. We just need to present ourselves in the right way, and the way its been going for the past couple years definitly is NOT, the right way

until this meeting in vegas has taken place, no one should be set on any one format, because we dont know which one will come out on top...

^I agree.

However, I still think that someone who has enough knowledge about NPPL and XPSL should still look into at least arranging some events for the 09 season. Call all fields who are large enough and willing to participate in still holding events and get teams signed up.

paintballing isn't profitable because of how expensive gear and paint is. Also, because it isn't a largely popular or largely known sport, it doesn't get attention of big companies and big sponsors. It also doesn't help that a lot of people find it "dangerous". but let's not get into that.

Paintballing needs to be VAULTED into mainstream sports. A good way is to do "charity" events that help fundraise for not only paintballing but some other organization as well. This would draw in big name sponsors to help while paintballing is seen as a fun and safe sport.

the sport needs tv to grow, but we are going about it all wrong. one format is going to change this so much more...

one single format will definitely help. you don't see football, baseball etc in different formats. hell. most sports played around the WORLD only have a single format: basketball, hockey, soccer. In order for this sport to thrive, It needs to use the resources and technology that we have today. Look at how Obama vaulted his numbers just by using the internet. If we are able to advertise online and on tv and show paintballing as a SAFE (since many people doubt it) and fun and adrenaline pumping sport, we'll be able to get this sport to grow so fast we won't know what to do with all the revenue!

over all it is a Sad day for PaintBall.... Both leagues are great, in there own format. It gave us all a choice to pick from (NPPL)semi Non-coaching , to (PSP) ramping mode and side line coaching. Both leagues has brought this sport far. Just think this is the only sport that you can play different formats in the same sport, i don't think there is any other sport that can do this. I enjoy playing both formats, it was great to play in both leagues.

Let's hope that it could be saved, and have the choices to pick what formats to play.

its what needs to happen though if anyone wants to legitimize the sport. we AREN'T taken seriously because o how unorganized we are. It's nearly impossible to explain to somebody all the rules for 7 man (let alone the understand it) then turn around and start explaining xball, they can't keep up and nobody should expect them to its just ridiculous..
