The tryout we filmed will be featured as a new web series called "The Roster."

The first episode will probably be out a month or so after the Vicious film

Not dumb at all. The MobileRider system is a little awkward. Go to your podcast section of your iTunes. They should be there with a grey out button that says "get" click that.

Hope that helps!

What's with the constant roster changes in professional paintball? The lack of contracts (in the sense of NFL, MLB, etc.) I feel allows this to happen. That said, of you want professional paintball to grow in terms of popularity I don't think you can have these roster changes and new teams popping up as often as it happens.

Does anyone know what drives all these changes? Because as an outside perspective it looks like teams have internal fights all the time and decide to switch teams.

Oh but a nice vid!

It all happened in the off season, just like in all professional sports, team change with free agents and such in the off season.

No bro, I think you're just thinking about the moves at the end. There were several additions & moves through out the course of the film, which occured during the season.

Thanks for the compliment. The cause of this is just the economic operation model of the sport. Many Players are not paid salaries for being on a roster, and the rosters arent regulated and administered by the leagues.

Pro paintball behaves more similarly to other action sports. The teams operate, in essence, as independent small businesses. They generate revenue from sponsorship deals with product brands, event winnings and personal appearances.

Some teams are basically or outright owned by a manufacturer (the Ironmen, Infamous) other teams like Aftershock or Vicious are owned by an individual who own a retail outlet or field. A handful are owned by an individual with no paintball business ties (Russians, Arsenal, Damage I believe)

Owners may or may not workout compensation for their players, but what that is and how its done is completely different all over the board. There's no league minimums, so the Russians do what works for their model, Aftershock does what works for them.

The leagues and pro teams are not directly affiliated with each other like in trad pro sports. Though people refer to the NPPL as "team owned," it too is complex and more of a "league owned by the teams" then having "teams owned by the league"

It's important to understand the difference there, it's not a top-down structure managing its teams.

Technically, the pros pay the leagues, in the forms of entry fees.

Pro Teams elect to play in as many or as few leagues as suites their budgets and sponosrship/exposure needs.

The leagues have no direct influence over the operations of the pro teams, though I did hear a rumor that for 2012 pro teams & players all agreed that a player would have to be "released" by his current team before he moves to a new one mid season. I personally can't confirm this though.

Hope that helps!!! It's all pretty complicated! ;-)

Thanks so much for watching the film & being interested enough to ask questions!

Thanks for the explanation, and yes it sounds quite complicated. The fact that there are two leagues is probably where this problem really originates from. If you had one league you may be able to follow the model of other professional sports. Although even if you did, it probably wouldn't be totally possible.

It makes it difficult for fans (especially new fans) to track all these changes and updates to rosters when they seem to happen at any point in the year. Also, what's with the city associations? It stems from the old NXL leagues correct? I guess it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me most of the time because the players are from all over.

At the end of the day it is definitely a very complicated and somewhat odd way of doing business. But I'm sure that those in charge have thought about it quite a bit.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
