I was there, front center in the stands.

Final game, 45 secs left on the clock.
fixed video link:

Mistakes happen, people apologize / get reprimanded.
What's done is done.

Congrats to XSV and Damage for getting 1st and 2nd.

Why is Jrab taking all the flak? Seems like there was a 2nd damage player doing exactly the same thing in that video, right beside him.

Either way looks like the XSV guy that got lit up got to deal his own damage back on Jrab.

It's always the retaliation that gets the penalty.

Watch the whole finals match, not just that one point. Damage was getting worked pretty good so that builds frustration but you can see JRab getting upset even before the overshooting spree (look at the end of point number 3). Im not saying what he did should be ok, its not. It was flat out wrong and he deserves any punishment the league hands down, but in a way, i get it.

That being said, i am happy he apologized right away and took the blame for what he did. It takes a man and a true professional to step up and admit wrong doing. Also, he had a cam on his gun... POST THAT FOOTAGE!!!

Unsportsmanship like this hurts all sports.


As a fan of Damage, Justin Rabackoff, and paintball, I am disappointed. I hope you receive a suspension.

I’m from Puerto Rico and I was watching the web cast… a few months ago a puertorican boxer diss in national TV (ShowTime) a referee because of his lost… like a puertorican I felt ashamed... He is on review to get a 1 year suspension, he deserve it... Hope league take action about this... you deserve a suspension like any pro player gets when he do this type of things, reminds me of Miami Rage THEY LOST AND DECIDE TO PICK FIGTHS….

If you watch the vid close you will hear the buzzer go off the refs out stopping play and then J Rab takes off on his shotting spree. I know saying your sorry for a mistake is great but the league needs to step in and have penalities for such action so as it is not repeated in the future,

yeah i agree that bad part on the involved players,

but it does take 2 to tango, and i do see Jrab making a public apology,

hell have to face the music sure but there were more involved.

Thanks for the apology Jrab.

Suspend him for an event and let this be done with. Tempers flare in sports.. ESPECIALLY when you're playing for a championship

If yall dont like getting shot play tennis. Things happen dudes get shot a whole bunch of times.


I love watching people get blown up. And I watched every point of that game and I have alot of question about some stuff that seemed sketchy that whole time.

I think thomas taylor is rediculous trying to get after timmy probst like he's never done anything sketch his whole career.

i give you respect for that jrab. i saw the game live and watched it all go down AND read all the posts and comments from everyone. i've been in a similar situation in a regional, divisional tourney so i can relate. we all know that our sport is fueled by adrenaline and that 99% of us are fierce competitors. those 2 factors combined can sometimes result in the incident that took place at the end of your game.

that being said, i think we all expect a bit more from players that have reached the professional level. it's VERY important that we do not breed a group of young players that think what happened there was "cool". we have enough problems getting the general public to take our sport seriously so any additional roadblocks are just counterproductive.

good for you for manning up and taking responsibilities for your actions. we all know you're one of the best and we love watching you play. asfar as i know, this is a first for you so there's no problem letting it slide, IMO.

good luck in pheonix!

youre too soft.

Hockey allows fighting... The crowd loves it. Things get heated sometimes and thats the way things are. Penalties and suspensions are assigned where due in any sports.

It didn't feel good to watch that. Damage is the home team for most of us Florida players and I've been rooting for them for a while now. Seeing a complete disregard for anything that resembles sportsmanship from your favorite team is worse than watching any other team do it because you lose respect for a group of people you (at one point) admired.

I seriously hope they learn something from this, because a lot of the respect they earned from seasons of hard work was just lost in about 30 seconds of childish behavior.

We've heard Justin Rabackoff's apology, where are the rest of them?

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.
