The point is they set a time frame in which the dates would be released. They set the deadline and missed that deadline. They should have never said that dates would be released at the end of the week in the first place. The point is don't make arrangements that you can't keep, especially professionally.

The point is this. They stated they would have them released 2 days ago at the latest. If they ran into a problem and couldn't get them released on time than let everyone know! Don't just let everyone hang there not knowing what's going on!

Very interesting and could explain both Leagues delay in releasing schedules for this year.

Or just the result of someone with too much time on their hands.

They also said that that as the deal was being worked out the higher ups at NPPL scoffed at the deal and wanted more.
They also wanted PSP to hire NPPL's marketing manager to run their league.

Both leagues are about to get the middle finger. They clearly don't have the players in mind.

Eveyone's pissed now, but once they release the dates you all will go back to your daily grind as if there was never an issue. So nothing will change, and the PSP will continue to do as they please with little to no repercussions, just as they have in the years past.

This is actually rarely true. I never book flights months in advance. Usually flights are cheapest about 6-8 weeks out, unless you're going to the Super Bowl or something. I've seen the best deals as late as 3 weeks out.

Great... Now all I have to do is find a Job that gives me a raise when I ask for a 3 day Vacation 3 weeks out and my life will be perfect. According to PSP standards that is....

While i agree with you about airline prices it doesnt change the fact that my boss is in my anus over these dates.

Well hopefully when she does decide to post the dates maybe there will be an explanation on why they didnt meet their own deadline.

Ya, I think there are two parts to playing national events. One can I afford it and two can I get the time off?

For the first one, I don't care if I buy my ticket now or in a month but I'm fortunate that way. What I DO care about is getting my vacation days set - it's not always so easy depending on the job you have. I think that's the issue a lot of people are upset about.

It is not about the flights....

5 PSP events = 4 days of paintball x 5 + 2 days for WC and Chicago

2 days of each even I must take off work, plus the extra 2 for WC and Chicago. That makes 12 days that I have to request off work to play all 5 PSP events. I don't know about you, but most young working professionals only get 2 weeks vacation, plus 3 sicks days and normally 2 flex days. Total of 15 days.

That would only leave me with 3 days for the entire year to take off.... No vacation, no weddings, no being sick, no drinking to much on a Sunday football night and not wanting to go to work....

You see what i am getting at here? The earlier you give me the dates, the more likely it will be for me to talk to my boss and possibly work it out so I can have a few extra days or maybe not use all my paid vacation days up right away.

Either way release the damn dates, and stop making excuses or trying to justify it.
