Event #5 question for the Smith's *SHORT SLEEVES*

Gents,

Can we overlook the jersey rule for this event seeing how it will be 100* out? Sure would be nice to play in a short sleeve. What do you think CFPS players?

I think changing the rules because of weather is wrong. It's a rule because it needs to be a rule (safety, reffing) not because the weather is suppose to be cold

Not so much of a post for a discussion or debate, simply hoping the Smith's would see it.

Sorry the "what do you think Cfps players?" was misleading. If your concerned about a question just for John you should call CFp.

It has been allowed in the past and I wouldn't doubt the Smith's to temporary remove the rule for this event.
The safety of the players is really at risk in the heat, especially when it is an all day event, not just two matches then you get to go home.
Last year's July event has players throwing up and an ambulance called for a rising heat stroke. Funny enough, the player who had an ambulance called was wearing his black long sleeve because he didn't have anything else that "looked decent".

Well maybe a thread to make sure everyone stays hydrated would be appropriate. 2 36 packs of waters lol

John said that that they were planning on allowing short sleeves and arm pads for the rest of the year, if I'm not mistaken.

Just my two cents. It's Florida. Everyone knows this. We all have been practicing in this weather all year. So with that being said hydrate, don't drink and get sleep the night before and if you have been conditioning through the year it won't be a walk in the park but it will be easier. Bring water and a cooler and take your long sleeves jerseys/shirts off when not playing. In my opinion there has been ample time between games to cool down and rest for a bit.

Safety hazard playing in a t-shirt????? seriously LOL I been rollin 30 yrs never herd a t-shirt is a safety hazard . That being said Im almost 50 and t-shirt would be nice but if you are preparing for a National event it is hot at the events too and you want to train like your at a event. In my own humble opinion as long as you dont have any bare skin showin you should be allowed to play. I know some of you and some I dont but you have seen my summer playin gear shorts a tee-shirt with elbow pads and soccer socks I dont have any bare skin showin and as long as folks are shootin under 300 im good to go over 300 and you leave holes in my shirt LOL after 30 yrs paintballs dont bother me too much See yall Saterday I cant believe Im gonna play this event still LOL

I think Steve sucks so my vote automatically goes toward the opposite of whatever side he agrees with.
