Red face 2011 Suggestions

First let me say 2010 was awsome.

As a spectator Huntingtom beach is still #1
NPPL needs to work on introducing paintball to the masses though.
I saw some curious people turned away at Vegas cause they didnt pay for bleacher wrist bands. There should be areas where they can watch a little for free, i know field 2 was free but the passer byes found it to hard to find a place to watch. Mabe web cam tvs in the vendors row or even videos in the lobby of the riveara, one tv in the sports book would be Great !
How bout ticket givaways on local radio or skate shops. That could work for all events. I'd just like to see paintball introduced to more people.

agreed. nppl has come leaps and bounds, but there should be no reason for huge gaps in the stands on fridays and saturdays. lets get some free tickets to our viewers and get some fans!!

Also i dont know the cost difference between a field like PEVs as apposed to hunt bch but more tourist locations sound better.
For example any six flags parking area or beach/ boardwalk locations like miami or atlantic city. Just a thought

the huge problem with spectating nppl is the waiting between games. it takes too long to start another game people lose interest or get worn out from the sun and leave. xball, you sit in on a match and watch constant paintball for a good half hour. its exciting, and the next match starts fairly fast. maybe nppl's s7 format may be a lil quicker on the turn around so you get through more paintball faster and its easier to hold new spectators interest

Here's a suggestion! Why not split the NPPL into areas for example (west coast, east coast, midwest, southern and mabey a northeast). You can have all divisions (pro-d3 or d4) run 3 events, and the top so many teams leading in series points (depending on sign up) goto a finals (Vegas or whatever big city they want) and play all other top teams from the other areas. This way for example all the midwest teams do not have to travel all over to play they could be held in St. Louis, chicago, Minnesota, Kansas City, you get more midwest teams going to the events cause of less expense on travel and so on. You use local fields and stores to have a trade show, which keeps the small vendor selling the main manufacturers gear, and the small man makes money, in turn the big man makes money. The sport grows awarness grows, more teams play cause of the closeness of the events.
I actually have this plan all layed out in detail if anyone is interested.. (man I have no life..lol).

Not sure I would change any of the locations. All the events were at great locations. Chicago and DC were in the middle of nowhere but the fields them selves were fantastic. I def wouldn't move away from pevs those fields were beautiful.

APPA is my main suggestion. The current registration and team list is simply pathetic. When we got to DC we thought there were 35 teams in the division, since that's how many paid teams the team list had. Then there were like 15 at the event.

Other than that, better refs and bring in more paint vendors, better music, you know, the usual stuff.

i think instead of turf next year they should pave the field in gold. they should also make prizes for top 24. first place should be way better like a new car or maybe even a jet. nppl should get helicopters for players so they dont have to walk from their hotel to the field and would it kill them to maybe have georgeous models handing out champange and lobster tails while we play. this league is getting ridiculous. am i right ppl?

Free event shirt for players!
Bigger Tradeshows/ more venders!
Better Refs on Field #2 (center court refs have been amazing but not field 2)
Get more teams involved by more advertising or special deals!

Is anyone sure about the NPPL status or next year? It seems like the teams per division has been dramatically decreasing for the past 3 years! Back in 08 we had 103 teams in our division at the end of the year! This year we had 11 and I cant figure out why? I understand that 5man is not a strong point in NPPL but look at all the divisions. I want to see NPPL stay for the 2011 but it doesnt look promising. Im not bashing in any way but why cant we get NPPL like PSP? Nppl- Send banners to all fields in the US! Get more webcast going! Run sister events and lets pray for a kickass 2011

NPPL #1
