no they want them to buy into the league so anyone can shoot their paint. Pay so many of thousands of dollars so a few teams can shoot their paint.

atleast thats my understanding

I think it has something to do with Severe not paying Larry all the money they agreed too.

Obligations and agreements not fulfilled. Last years sponsors agreed to certain levels of monetary sponsorship in order to provide for a cash payout to winning teams. If you can put 2 and 2 together I'm pretty sure you can draw your own conclusions.

If you guys need any more information other then that you'd have to talk to Larry or Josh and I'm not sure beyond that what information is necessary other then to say as others have...bet on DXS and Kee and definitely not Severe.

Nah that sums it up.
Someone didn't pay their bill.
Perhaps they felt it was "justified" (maybe they didn't sell as much as they would have like) but regardless, a contract is a contract, business is business, and business can't risk losing money.

Are you able to BYOP to CFOA events? I.e. buy paint from your local field and bring it with you? Or do you have to buy it/receive it at the event(s)?

Last year as long as the paint you bought was CFOA approved then yes you could bring it. I would assume this still stands true. After all if we don't support he local stores then paintball wont be around for long.

I didn't participate last year, but on the website, it simply stated "BYOP" in regards to paint.

Ahh, ok. AS long as the paint is one of the CFOA sponsored paints it shouldn't matter.

Okay, seriously.

How much is the damn paint going to cost? How am I supposed to budget for a team when a week before the event, pertinent information STILL is not released?

This is getting ridiculous.

This is getting a bit ridiculous. It's the week of the event and no final words yet. I have pity for you teams.

Whoops my fault. I was thinking 5 man and X ball 1's were at the same place like last year. I guess I need to look at that schedule a little closer.

I can see Doc sitting on the bleachers at Windy Hill now, with his cell phone in his hand trying to figure out where everyone is...

That would make me laugh!!!!

But Kee and Pro Caps are more than likely a definite. Everything else, who knows. Everyone is in the same boat, and Larry knows this so whats the point of *****ing about it?
I mean damn, we are shooting Kee and Pro Caps this year, and we don't even know for sure whats going on. If Larry came back and said "No Kee or Pro Caps" we would be SOL and have to re work it. Its the beginning of the year. It always happens. Just roll with it and get ready to play some paintball!!!!

I shouldn't have to simply accept it due to it being the beginning of the year... These types of things should be worked out well in advance to allow players to budget.

Ok, I understand you being angry. Ive been playing the series for a few years, so I accept it as part of the beginning of the season.

Just wondering, have you sent Larry and Josh any emails? Have you tried to pm them? Have you tried to contact them via the CFOA phone number on the website? All about the questions you have.

Im just curious...
