Last year, Ken was all over the NY forums posting NYPL information, this year, he went silent...

All you post is "E1 = july 10th" when E3 was supposed to happen on july 10th... what about the other division?

Where is the beautiful turf that was supposed to be laid in october? Did everyone get their money back like Ken promised if the turf wasn't laid out in time?

I love headrush and all, but seriously....

Hopefully Ken sees this to set the record straight, but basically all the team owners have been made aware whats going on, etc. so really, as long as the people playing it know whats up, theres really no need to post all sorts of updates on here. lets be honest, he would prob get *****ed at either way right?

But to go from having 2 divisions and a ton of teams to having a single division and what... 7 teams?

and STILL not even having the first event when the 2nd event was supposed to happen already...

How do you expect to create a buzz to make people WANT to come play?

Instead of the 3-4 leagues to play last year there are about 13 leagues going on this year, all with a low team average. the buzz will be created when the new field is unvieled and people realize how professional this league looks.

To be honest. I have had a lot of hold ups and delay that are completely out of my control. I am focusing solely on make sure everything for E1 is 100%. I have been in touch with the owners through the entire process. I am going to be in touch with the owners early next week with the next update.

So far, I fail to see professional.

Thank you Ken. This was more angled to find out why there haven't been any updates since a LONG time ago... People like to follow what goes on in their area. I'm used to seeing a HR flyer once a week. NAPL has been silent and was curious as to why.

I thought this league was dead.. Leagues fail when they promise too much to soon and then can't follow through. First impression is KEY and that has come and gone a LONG time ago.

Yes most importantly you want to make sure that you keep up to date with people who have already invested in your league, but updates to the public is a key advertisement tool which is lacking tremendously.

Here comes all the criticism and garbage spewing. If your so concerned about a league your not playing, email him directly. Why start a public ****-storm about every goddamn thing that happens that doesnt affect you in any way...

He is saying it isn't X-ball if you build snow castles, it's more a scenario thing vs a speed ball thing. That's all, nothing more.

the thing with turf is, if you move the snow. you can use the field. hence why you see so many high schools switching football fields over to turf, along with the ease of maintenance versus attempting to grow grass, which quite frankly gets ruined after a couple weeks. i'm sure you overlook folks posting are aware of that.

Who says it doesn't affect me? I sent out tons of emails to teams to come play NYPL (at the time) for 2011, I had a hand in trying to build up the league bigger and better than it was ever before... and now its down to lower numbers than in 2009... when I first played...

2009 had lots of posts about NYPL hyping it up.
2010 had TONS of posts about NYPL hyping it up.
2011 has had very few posts about NYPL (NAPL) thus far and the season is supposed to be half over already and there hasn't been a single event yet...

Im not starting a public **** storm, and im pretty sure that Ken understands that. If I ever had a problem I brought it up to Ken. Almost all of which were rectified. 2010 put a bad taste in a TON of players mouths... almost nothing was done in their eyes to fix the situation.... whether it's true or not doesn't really matter... Players decided to NOT spend their money at NAPL due to last years events. The lack of information this year and the lack of events isn't helping the situation.

Turf is easier to maintain than grass... number 1 reason why it gets used... That is, until the schools get informed that the turf degraded to the point that poisonous lead is being released from the fibers in the turf and causing issues with the students who are playing on it.

Overlook has beautiful grass... It's not champions paintball anymore.
