yes because we all know that ten man is still alive and bumpin

Half of the 18-team NPPL pro division plays in the NXL. The number of D4 PSP teams that competed in the 08 season nearly doubles the number of D3 NPPL teams. If 7-man were as important as you say it is, the NPPL wouldn't be filing for bankruptcy.

You may want to look over what you just said. You are saying that PSP events should be in CA even though "90% of CA teams do not play xball at all". Oftly selfish of you, don't you think? Especially considering that the PSP mentioned that CA events are some of the most expensive events to run and you're making the rest of the teams in the country travel as far as possible.

I doubt the PSP will be adding a 7-man division unless they use the same fields for X-ball as they would with 7-man.

I would guess there will be one event in the southwest this year. Maybe PSP will work something out with Huntington Beach (the city). The other events will be spread around the country, as they should be, zero or one event per region.

Actually, YOU need to look at the big picture.

Did you honestly think two national/professional leagues could survive, in harmony, indefinitely?

maybe this will allow a niche for more legitimate somewhat localized leagues like axbl, cxbl, and cfoa to thrive in, since a major complaint of alot of people is the time and cost of flying cross country to play events.

edit:wow walk away for a minute and somebody else brings it up!

in my mind the best thing for the sport would be for an AXBL style conferences and play be for tournaments. you play an actual season and whatnot but every month would only have to drive a short distance to play a few teams and get your seeding points up. the conferences would be like South East, North East, South West, Etc...

Pros would play in one of each of the regions. they would be the only true travelers around the states and it could be something cool to invite friends to go watch the pro games playing after your games or before your games that day.

a nation championship would be between the top seeded teams in the conferences. this then would constitute who truely is the best in the nation that year. the other teams that didn't make it would have a chance to win a cash prize but would be a round-robin style like Cup does for all teams but will not mean as much and will not be as much money as the National champs games.

just my 2cents but i think paintball would be viewed alot better this way. as well, people can understand xball a bit quicker than 7man. sorry, but even i get confused sometimes and i've been playing paintball for about 8 to 9 years! .

oh, an example for the driving would be like for me, an event in south florida, central florida, north florida, georgia, and maybe south carolina. all in a 5 month period. everybody has the same style of jersey but different logos and sponsors (like the AXBL, nobody is playin in longsleeves). sponsors can be on loaders, guns, masks, pants, pack, stickers on whatever and whatnot. keep Xball real and have the two 16 min. halves. ask anybody in the AXBL and they'll tell you it's actually cheaper, with the exception of the franchise purchase, to play a season of AXBL than play one or two events of PSP.

don't get me wrong, I love the PSP and all that it does and i believe xball is true paintball, but the AXBL has it all right in my mind for paintball and its' future.


edit: oh and people arguing with Chris Raehl should probably stop, he'll make you look stupid. he knows alot more than you all do most likely and has alot more insight on what actually happens at events

Im posting this without reading the rest of the responses, and yes I know who I am quoting:

While field sizes, rules, etc are different between leagues wouldnt you think it would be best to modify your existing setup to incorporate those players coming from the NPPL?

The same thing has happened to 7-man that happened to 10-man. The number of teams wanting to play it has dwindled to the point that it's just not worth running the format anymore.
I see what you're saying. Does that mean 5-man could eventually disappear and 3-man be the dominant format?

RIP NPPL

After 6 years of not turning a profit and having the "Rockstar" innuendo, I am surprised that so many people are surprised.

i dont know if any of u actually realize how ****ed paintball is right now, with the exception of psp, nppl going bankrupt means the loss of 3 of the biggest tournament series if xpsl and millenium are going down with it, so the death of 7-man finally arrived, wats next?

Devil's advocate: Why should the rest of the country care about California kids having no paintball series to play in that is local?

It would suck not to have a local series of SOME SORT to play in... BUT, would you guys care if Florida or the Carolinas or the North East didn't have any tournament series to play in?
