increase due to inflation would be utter BS, if anything a decrease would be more appropriate. The CPI is going down

I highly doubt the people at PSP will lower their prices. More than anything, they might even have to raise prices to keep people away if overcrowding at events becomes a large issue unless they are willing to have events at stadiums to accommodate the large influx of participants.

And 10 events is just crazy. That means we either start the season in February and end it in November with one event per month or begin in March like this past year and possibly have 2 events in a month for certain months and somehow manage to end it in October.

The rights to the game are most likely being sold along with everything else from the NPPL. Wouldn't be surprised if the money currently coming in from the game is going right into Shawn Walker's pocket, word on the street is that he's quite the scumbag (just heresay).

Someone said something about PSP having 10 events, wont happen, that would be 10 plane tickets, 10 hotel rooms, ten car rentals, ten entry fees, and ten weeks off from school/work. No one playing divisional ball has that much time to commit to the sport.

Maybe one or two more events but I cant see a full on 10 and the only thing I can say about this is D1 psp paintball is about to get crazzzzyyyy.

I think maybe one per month is not bad if the season begins in March and ends in October like its supposed to. I believe that is 8 events... okay nevermind, thats too many. Maybe have the season start in April and have an event every month until October to have 7 events?

Can someone explain me exactly what would be bought? Wouldn't it only just be the name NPPL, and bunkers since they rent ,and don't own the places like in Huntington Beach?

I actually think i have a wonderful solution.

Try to have 7 Possible events, and really spread them around the country.

only allow teams to play 5 of them. This way teams can compete for a series title without having to travel as far, yet they would still have to encounter all of the top teams sooner or later.

The Brand Name, Bunkers, Carpetting, Netting, Camp Pendelton Paintball Field, PB2X Magazine, Paintball.com, that crappy registration system, the rights to the video game, and I am sure I am missing a few assets.

I believe the registration system is owned by Shawn Walker's Brother (or Brother in-laws) company. Meaning it won't be auctioned off - in fact, that company might be a creditor looking to get money when the other assets are sold.

No - not everything is being bought, but everything they own is being sold. There are several options - it could be purchased by one entity - it could get broken into pieces and purchased by several different people/companies, it could be taken by a creditor to satify their debt. I'm sure I'm missing some options, but you get the idea.

Some will convert to PSP, others wont. It's a tough call. If Paint jumps up $10 a case again this year, we will have major problems.

Another option most are overlooking is that a new league will come together and replace the NPPL without the overhead and debt existing with the current structure.

I don't see how the PSP could go out of business at least this year with the new influx of teams and the fact that they are no longer having to compete with the NPPL. This should be a golden year for the PSP whether or not the players will get ****ed over is still yet to be seen.
