New NPPL Rumor

"Tom Fore and the new "NPPL"?

Word on the street is Tom Fore (ARSENAL Owner) is working to put together a new 7man premier league to fill the shoes the NPPL’s shoes. Preliminary plans include running not one but 2(!) Huntington Beach events and a 12-team Pro division. Chuck Hendsch will supposedly be overseeing operations and running the new league.

The “new NPPL” is reportedly planning on having approximately 100 teams per event and maintaining the existing NPPL divisions. Word has it they are currently trying to source the equipment neccessary. The grapevine is abuze with talk on the new league and most importantly, where the teams and money will come from. Chuck Hendsch is said to be bringing approximately $100K to help with funding operations though no one is really sure who (in their right mind) would be forking over such a large amount of cash at this time. With JT and WDP (barely) treading water, Kingman+outside sponsors may be the only ones with enough cash on hand to make such a move. At this point, anything is possible.

What do you think? Is another league viable at this point in our sport? Who is going to be funding the league, and most importantly, what pro teams would bail on the PSP to compete? Sound off in the comments below."

I hate stupid people. We finaly have one leave and one formate we can unite under and support, and thease fools want to divide it up ageen.

They need to pull there head out of there *** and do what is best for the sport, which is one leage. Why divide the money. They said it them Selvs. They don't have they money to do this, so why try why waist the money to try doing somthing that already failed.

One formate,I leage, one sport united....

The spelling sucks I know.

either way, we should keep one major semi auto only league.......ramping is just a way to weave out the cheaters (from super secret ramping modes......)

300+lb overweight middle age men sitting behind bunkers for 10 minutes with 13+ pods only shooting 8bps is not that much fun to watch.

I have been asking the question for years, If we change everything we enjoy about paintball just to get our faces on TV, is it really worth it? what do you think that we the players are actually going to gain? unless you are Dave youngblood or Bill or Adam Gardner its going to get you SQUAT!

long live NPPL

I think that there is no way that the PSP would be able to handle the huge influx of teams if all of the NPPL teams hopped over. it would be a logistical nightmare. and what happens to the teams that just do not care for the PSP events? do they just pack it up and call it a day?

this is a terrible idea.

the whole fun in paintball is the ablity to play all sorts of different games, from Xball to scianrios and have fun doing it.

one format and only one format will doom paintball to a teenage ansty trend, with a 2 year turnover.

This attitude is one of the many reasons paintball is hurting the way it is. This attitude has eliminated the exact people who have the money and resources to play paintball-- and you want to exclude them from the tournament experience? If ten man was fun then that's what we should be doing. We need to bring the FUN back into the sport. We need less people watching and more people playing to keep things moving. Bottom line is we need more people coming in/back to the sport. And BTW we all become "middle age" sometime---you ought to be thinking of your future.

The PSP dropping to 10BPS is a big step in the right direction, but the 7 man format is more fun for alot of people(I really miss 10 man as well) One league is a good theory if you want to get paintball in the main stream and on TV, but like cockerpunk said its fun to play different styles and ways NPPL and PSP are two compleatly different games. We need to forget about this whole get paintball on TV crap, its not going to work because the general public doesn't want to watch it. Lets refocus on the game and players having fun instead.

This is one of the few times I have actually agreed with you.

Also, think about this: if there is only one national league they can charge whatever ridiculous prices they want for entry fee and paint.
