Sounds extreme 2 me.
Extreme sports are typically classified as those with an inherent risk of potentially very serious injury. Due to the usage of paintball masks, there is little risk of real injury in paintball. (The "we are extreme" argument is in direct conflict with the "look how safe paintball is" assertions by the playerbase)

THIS is extreme, paintball is not.

So does that make football an extreme sport?

I always heard it wont ever make xgames because its a team sport and the xgames are all individual people competing.

I think it could be in the x games but it would have to be more extreme. Like you can only wear shorts and no shirts or something. The only reason people watch the x games is to see someone do someting ridiculous or see someone get hurt.

I support this idea as long as masks are banned.

X games are for poor people. Poor people cannot afford paintball, ergo paintball wont be in x games.

Maybe I missed the dodgy, but rally and motocross aren't exactly cheap.

The X Games consists of a bunch of individual sports with people doing tricks and stunts. How does that sound anything like paintball? They don't even have team sports in the X Games.

Can you even ride a skateboard? These dudes pull 1080's off vert ramps like it's nothing and you probably can't even ride one. If you don't like something you can't even respect it, so I guess what I'm saying is your opinion sucks.

That's what I was thinking would make this an extreme sport. That way you can see the skin get blown of by a paintball. lol

I rode one when I was 9, and then I realized it was for fags and I stopped.
