Post PSP - Official Post Dallas Update

PSP 2015 League Updates

Lawrenceville, Georgia – March 17, 2015.

First and foremost, the PSP would like to thank all of the players who battled through the mud with us this weekend. Mother Nature decided not to cooperate, but our hard working staff and dedicated players kept the event alive, and for that we wanted to give a big thanks to all of you.

PSP Nashville registration will open tomorrow. We are excited to bring our tournament series to a brand new venue in Tennessee, a thriving area for the sport of paintball.

The PSP would like to address some rumors, both internally and externally, surrounding our league:

1) The entire PSP Staff, will be staying together and is dedicated to bringing our customers the best events possible.

2) No individuals, teams, or event sponsors will be denied the ability to participate in the PSP, regardless of their affiliations outside our league.

3) The PSP holds fair competition as a core principle. It was brought to our attention that our current paint sponsorship structure put one of our teams at a potential disadvantage; we will be addressing this issue within the next week.

4) A new corporate structure in the PSP is being introduced, which leaves no one shareholder accountable for any future PSP decision-making. The CEO, COO, and other PSP staff will be responsible for running the business.

Expect to see a lot more transparency from the PSP as these changes are implemented, as well as a more open line of communication between customers, our brand ambassadors, and upper management.

For the paint sponsorship, I believe it was Damage attempted to buy paint to play against Heat, and was told no?

Yep, one of the Edwards bros posted on FB that GI declined to sell them paint before their match against Houston Heat.

It is good that they are doing this

Maybe they will do what many pro players suggested

Take pro teams and test new rules/tools/procedures whatever the **** you call rof and true semi being limited and all that layoit releasing mumbo jumbo
And try it out before making it a thing.

Theres no need for a new league. Psp knows what is wrong with the league. they are working to fix it and until now they were unable to because of the way they set it up. Now it seems they are trying to make things right. *sits back and folds arms*

Speaks the truth. Why does the PSP feel it can change the entire dynamics of the pro bracket without getting feedback from your customers before you implement things? Field sizes, layouts, BPS, bunkers being retired etc. That is bad business practice at its core. You are not listening to your customers.

The worst thing is year after year of crap venues. Seems like it took you 10 years to realize Chicago is not a good venue in the month you always schedule it. You think teams wants to pay $$$ to come play in the rain and mud that smells like dookie? Open your ears and brains. You are on the right track by making Chicago a different month this year but what about Texas? How many fields have to get destroyed and players playing in crap conditions before you realize Texas is not a valid location for March? You have 48 states in the cont. US to hold tournaments at, do some damn research on past weather conditions and make the best assessment, I could do this at home with Google, you have an entire staff. There are no excuses for things like this. Look at last event, Cousins paintball's property is destroyed, players were miserable in those conditions, and the conditions also changed the dynamics of the game, all things you don't want in a venue. Yet I bet you that you will have it again their next year in March...too little to late.

Doesn't get any more posts because this pretty much sums it up. PSP shut out the players for too long, offering transparency now is a little soft, maybe next week they will get a suggestion box

I would just like to know consistent updates, so the teams can have things straightened out instead of potentially paying for entry to find out we could have no sponsorship support.

It's not dying, but it's definitely a niche sport and I disagree with anyone that thinks it can be mainstream.

What I have came to a conclusion on is that paintball makes me financially broke, and I have not seen any positive progress in the league / industry to want come back. Therefore in my eyes paintball is a dying sport, I had great times when I was younger but now I realize there is more to life then paintball tournaments year after year, weekend after weekend. Time to move on with life in general and do something that actually has significance in this world. Lets be realistic here and lets look at the main problem, paintball is not expanding the way it needs to. Leagues are shutting down, teams are retiring from the league. The sport is not going anywhere, until we find a solution on how to create growth in the sport, and in the teams, and in the league it will continue to decrease.

I remember watching paintball live on Espn 2 like five years ago. Then I felt like the sport was heading in a right direction but then it backfired and now we have no Nppl league and more problematic situations.
