I was there and yes you did approach the owner who went over to talk to that person right away

I have no reason to lie about what I saw happen. The fact is the guy got caught and was trying to lie to get out of it. I watched him stand over my bag and eye ball it's contents before reaching in, taking the pod then walking away.
I had no intention of mentioning the field or the owner... Honestly. Ive already mentioned I understood the tough position she was in. She was very nice. She checked with me several times after the event and offered to let me keep my gear inside.
So as you stood by your bag some random man took a pod outa your bag infront of you then gave it back to you??
[/Quote ] I actually asked the owner later in the day why the guy was still there. All shed say was it was a tough decision. It was the first and the last time I'll ever play there. Believe mw when I say I was not cool with it![/quote]
If you were not "cool with it" why did you not get a refund and leave?
You said in a earlier post she was very nice..but you still blame her?
The whole problem was and is that it was your word aginst his..he did not even have the pod in question..you did.
The man was there with a group in which he paid over $400 to play paintball with rental equipment for his group...iam not saying he did not take a pod but you have to admit to pay that kind of money and to take a pod out your bag seems strange.
the man did say that he picked up a pod off of the table, but when you said it was your he returned it...how close were you when he got it?/ and I do believe that it was not your first time at this field...you were on the nation last year blasting Official paintball games of Texas and some of the regular players there, where you said you were only playing at FORT from then on.
I hate a thief, and what ever they get --they deserve it---but in this case the man had several witness saying he did not go in you bag, not all of the were in his group (most were) I think what happend here was a little what you said and some of what he said and the owner could not sic the cops on him over a pod and just your word vs his...if he did go into you bag you learned a couple of lessons...# 1 seeing someone "eyeball" your bag , it is time to move your stuff or lock it in a car...# 2 you see a person in your bag..kick the crap outa him, don't run tell it and expect them to take just your word...when you have NO PROOF!
this sucks all the way around but really can anyone honestly say that they want a field owner to come and harrass them and accuse them of a crime & ban them with out ANY thing other than a disgruntled paintball players accusations?
Since the guy "took" your pod , you called him out here on the nation, even tho there is no way he reads this stuff...but to try to get everyone to dump on the owner in a public thread because you did not get the result you wanted....lets just say that was a "not cool" thing to do.
best of luck to you at the new field you pick to play at
