Know matter what the AXBL does everyones going to complain so why not make it easier for themselves and maybe turn a profit at the same time!

I remember when I played this stupid game it was about playing... not about applebees, hotels and turf!

I don't like to post here due to the fact I am not playing in this league anymore. But somethings gotta give. As iRoNiQ said they are saving massive amount of money and not giving anything back to the player. If I was a team owner I would ask where is this money going? What is it covering? This is getting outrageous YAY 3 events but who cares if two of them are at sodus. hell id have them all at r & m a much better field with a awesome owner. Its time for Team owners to start asking questions and start taking action.
Just what I think and dont care if anyone agrees or disagrees.

all i can say is i remember at the end of this past season, the number one complaint was about sodus. that's what people griped about the most (and the one match events, which has been fixed.) So i just dont get why the one big problem is the only thing that stayed after all these changes.

dude no one is talking about apple bees,hotels or turf, but it kinda sucks when everyone complained about sodus and look we have two events there again and we pay top dollar to play in this league we would like some nice venues, all 3 events are in NY now last year people compalied about the drive to Pitt and for the NY guys and the Penn guys they complaied about the mass event . Idk about u but i like those 2 events at least they were nice fields

everyone just needs to stop complaining and play paintball. sodus is being turned around and under new owners so its not what it was last year. R and M is a very central location and is a great place.

Unfortunately the new location this year, R&M, is only about 25 minutes closer for teams coming out of Massachusetts and central Connecticut. That doesn't make it a "central" location.

Albany would have been a central location with most teams driving 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours for the event.

Disappointed

Three events in upper state NY it's not to fair for all of the many New England teams.

Camelot has 4 to 5 teams
Outback Paintball 7 teams
And who knows how many are from MA

Very disappointed

There are four from Mass/Me and surrounding areas I can add. These teams jumped on board on the assumption as stated by the AXBL to be centralized.

It has absolutely nothing at all to do with entertainment. WE were basically mis led by the AXBL and are unfortunately financially committed "THIS YEAR"

looks like axbl is in it for themselves more then their spreading the gospel of a full xball match like they preach about in every single one of their newsletters.

also i find it funny that a field owner who has 7 teams in the league now and is more the capable of holding an event at his field is being ignored by the leagues head it seems.

its funny how only 2 of the top teams from last year stayed.. one is in kahoots with the league, the other one is doing it to solidify its dominance.

everyone else got the **** out because of the terrible locations, reffing, and general way the axbl is ran...

this season will be pretty interesting... i can see more teams dropping out now... 2011 is not looking bright for the axbl.

sure r&m is in the center of NEW YORK, but you gotta remember that most of the teams in the axbl now come from new england. and unless you are on the border of ny in mass, its still a 4.5 hour minimum for all of us.

but thats ok because rochester is right there and they gotta drive like an hour so its much more centralized now.

when the players talk about centralized, they mean somewhere where everybody has to make a bit of a drive, not catering to one area, which the axbl is still doing

4.5 hours is still a step in the right direction from where most of us are coming from but WTF. Take one of the events at least and move it to Matt's, Maynard or FOX Four! Jesus Christ! Share the love!

New England is a major financial contributor to the league (Mass, Ct, NY, RI, ME NH) Do we have any say???????????????

Really? I didn't know that they moved the PA/OH line futher east to Harrisburg. What about the Teams (not Team) coming up from Cincinatti?
I don't see them whining. They already knew the drive was there and still want to play AXBL. 9 hour drive to Sodus and 10 hours to R&M

You all need some cheese with your whine!

Tim! Let me correct you on travel time. It's 6 1/2 hours from Springfield Mass. Add 1 1/2 hour from where we are. A total of 8 hours driving time. Add a pitt stop at that Low Riding Nazi Strip Biker Joint in NY! Leaving "Marc's" girlfriend home this time, your up to 9/10 hours.

I did all the driving last year! Trust me! I didn't even get to enjoy the entertainment! I had the women.
