On another thought. Teams have too much at risk every single point during matches. There aren't many situations were teams can just do something crazy and potentially throw the point away. Sure when you start getting into raceto5-7 there is a little room to take some chances, but for the most part there isn't much room for error. Traditional Xball however you could come out and send 5 to the A, get blown up, and be just fine because you have another 15 minutes of game time to get that one back.

Oh I forgot that NPPL does not have a 5 man division that got more teams than 7 man did in d3/4 at chicago. I must be crazy...

so why dont we poll everyone and see exactly what we want, seems like a very large consensus want the old style xball with 15min matches, penalty boxes, and the whole 9 yards to return. lets see if it can be done

because thats not og xball. you would need to do 15 minute halves to be close to how it was and that would be twice as much paint as what your shooting now. thats the reason they did away with it when and the way they did.

10-12 man roster. Figure 40-50 Cases. It will be expensive but why not try it out. I think it would be worth a shot

Not to mention the length of the matches would be way to long to get hundreds of teams worth of games in during one weekend.

Unfortunately the best we all can do is play a traditional xball style league on the side if we are fortunate to live close enough to one.

Shorten the field! The extra bunkers will not solve the problem that the 50's had crappy shots on the cup layout. People were making it to the snake easy enough. There just weren't a lot of shots on those bunkers that people were locking down from.

xball was way more fun for both the players and the crowd when the fields were smaller. the action was much much faster

xball is doable with a time limit like 15 mins..its only with long play times that it becomes to expensive and time consuming

Imagine if they shortened a football field so people can score faster making the game more interesting......

Or making baseball bats x2 as wide so people will hit more....


-when you make things easier to make it more friendly to the masses you run the risk of blurring the line between the athlete and the rec baller.... it should be hard... only the fastest should make to certain spots the same way only o linemen play o line.....

Put the pins back in the center. We set up a custom layout at my local field and put the pins in the center and used every bunker. It was very old style and played very well.
