One thing that I think you guys should highly consider not doing again is denying the President of the National Press Photographers Association and Professional NFL photographer,(who has the contacts with people at Fox sports) of getting a Pro fields pass when he has shot the past events with no problem. He was working on a story for his friend who is the Fox Radio Announcer at the Fox HQ. He tried contacting you guys weeks before the event but no reply, when he arrived at WC he was told he couldn't have a Pro Media pass, and If he wanted one he'd have to BUY one! PSP please think over this again if you want to try to get the sport of paintball to grow. This is not good for our sport, when a rep for a highly respected press photographer association and representative comes looking to help out but you reject it. He finally got a pro media pass on Sunday, when our friend Kirill from RL had him added to the team roster under their team media. I will end this rant now, when we finally got the passes all was well! The event was great and we had a blast! I hope you guys resolve this issue for future events and thanks you for reading this. Have a great day, and we hope to see you at future events.

I wasn't aware.. Unbelievable though. Getting paintball into the media (in a positive manor) is one of the few ways to get this great sport to grow.

I share the original posters concerns.. Please reconsider this next time......

Wow psp, you usually are pretty good at making sound decisions. This was a big mistake though.

Why didn't he just buy a pass? Logistics happen, but seems like they had an out and there was no need for 'finally got a pass.'

Cause buying a media pass would of been over $500, you have to pay a buttload of money to take pics on the pro field.

I'm sure it wouldn't come out of pocket. I'm pretty sure FOX would cover the expenses. Even if the pass was bought, and the PSP was contacted later they could do a refund or work something out.

Like I said, logistics happens, there's always 2 sides to a story.

Just because he works for fox, has connections with fox does not mean that he was there working for fox. He could have been there as an experience photographer/fan who has connections in a very high power company that could change the face of our sport for the better.

Sure, he may have been able to work something out later, but that's 500 bones out of your pocket right now. Not everyone can take a 500 dollar hit and just shrug it off. Personally that would have crippled my spending budget for cup.

At the end of the day, why is a high-ranking media guy--as in REAL media--having to jump through hoops to shoot an event in a struggling industry like this?

I'd like to meet the person who looked the president of the NPPA in the eye and said, no, you can't shoot our podunk little game.

***, gas or grass, nobody rides for free. Go tell FACEFULL, PB2X and all the others that have been supporting the game for years that they have to pay, but FOX doesn't. He can pay like the rest. Anyway, if he WAS shooting for Fox, they would have covered the cost just like they cover all other events that charge for media passes.

Props to the PSP for being unbiased.

the only way FOX covers the expenses is if he is there on contract for them. if he is there as a member of the AP[paintball community, trying to use his connections to expand the audience then its out of pocket.
At best he could write it off as a work expense on his taxes.

Yes this is true but, Fox will gain attention from people not previosuly knowlagable in paintball and will bring our sport in positive light on national media for once. Im sure one freebie wouldnt have been that unjustified but I can definatly see your point of view brah.

Nice counterpoint, both sides of the fence fellas, although all of this is hearsay anyways....unless Camille or anyone from PSP would like to chime in, I like this guys approach tho.

Maybe because people were doing work on that field. Players, coaches and other photographers. I don't care who you are in real life... unless you are there to do work, stay off the field and out of the way.
