Petition for paintball

I was watching an X-Games commercial the other day and I got to thinking???? why the hell is paintball no longer an X-game sport? It used to be televised on a regular basis on ESPN 2 but no longer? This was years ago...if only networks knew how far this sport has evolved since then I am sure they would see what audience could be drawn to this sport and the money sponcers would be willing to invest....ESPN SHOULD NOT BE the network we as paintballers petition to....NBC sports channel (formerly Versus) would be a better fit for paintball being that that network televises other alternative sports like bull riding....


In any case Ive done some digging online and I found this petiton if you want you can sign it...or we can start a new one geared towards NBC sports network. Either way this should be a Sticky

before I create a new petition there is a very important section that I could use all of your imput on..."WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT." we can submit a petition to NBC sports network and with enough signatures its will be concidered but we need to make an argument as to why paintball is important to an investor and a network to televise...If anyone out here reading this is a sponcer your endorsement would be appreciated...

The X-Games have made it very clear that they do not intend to include paintball in the games at any time in the foreseeable future. Paintball does not fit in with the type of events they currently have. Regardless of what some people on this forum (and whoever edits the Wikipedia page) seem to think, paintball is not an extreme sport, and doesn't belong in an event with other extreme sports.

Further, an online petition will do absolutely nothing. Ever. You are kidding yourself if you think otherwise. These massive media corporations do not care what a couple thousand people on the Internet think about how they should run their business.
