For those of you who haven't read it. Please feel free to delete Jeff if I am just being a dead horse, as I know these threads seem to pop up every year or so, but this is the first time there is actual leverage in the industry to push for one national league.
Ive been pushing for one national league for years, anytime they have come up for discussion, my belief is that one national format will not only be better for the industry, but teams and players (especially divisional) who have been hurting the past few years. Also the cost to the industry (paint) will drop tremendously with much less events to travel to, so I see this as money companies can invest into sponsorships and marketing. It is my believe that this needs to happen on the national level soon, or tournament paintball will continue to decline rather than grow.
Jeff/Dave/whoever- Obviously you guys would stick to Xball if both leagues were around next year, but if not:
1.) Do you believe this is good for tournament paintball or paintball in general?
2.) Will this help to expose paintball further, one unified league with a single format (or few similiar ones, race to 5 man etc)?
3.) Will sponsorships get better/offered to more teams if this were to occur?
4.) Does the industry (more paint companies) have the leverage or will to unify the PSP/NPPL?
5.) What would be your ideal format, or variation of formats?
Obviously I know Propaintball is not a very reliable source when it comes to rumors and such, but I figured this would make for an interesting topic.
