UWL bans a player

Quote:
The UWL
In the Spirit of the Game
Paintball has traditionally relied upon a spirit of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed-upon rules, or the basic joy of play. Protection of these vital elements is important to the UWL. Such actions as taunting opposing players, dangerous aggression, and intentional infractions, or other 'win-at-all-costs' behavior are contrary to the spirit of the game and must be avoided by all players. Players not able or willing to live up to these standards will not be allowed to play in UWL events.

That said, Lee Price from the Turtles will not be allowed to participate in any future UWL events till further notice. Most of the players on the Turtles lived up to my expectations of fair play and acted honorably on the field with the exception of Lee! So no further actions will be taken against the Turtles.

Thanks,
Tom Cole

I work hard to make sure that is what the UWL offers. We cannot judge games in the woods the way they are judged in an arena so our penalties have to be stiffer.

Lee was banned till further notice for cheating. I saw the infraction and made the call.

So it is simple. If you do not want to follow the rules and play with honor and sportsmanship the UWL is not for you.

I'd be interested in knowing what you have to do to get banned like that.

Probably had a temper tantrum.

-edit- Actually, after reading the full post it does appear that he simply cheated.

The league is really starting to blow up, people love it. I think this is the first time anyone's ever been banned. I could be mistaken on that one, but the news here isn't so much about Chum Lee getting banned as it is "UWL actually bans people for cheating".

Wait... so he really got BANNED for cheating?? Holy ****, that's hardcore. I never even heard about this league until this thread, but if that's true, I already got a lot of respect for them.

Makes me wonder why other leagues don't follow this example...

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.
