Talking Paintball, Xtreme sport?

IMHO, I don't think paintball is an Xtreme sport . Why? because EVERYTIME these Xtreme athletes perform they are risking their life or limbs. When did you ever think to yourself that you might die playing paintball? I don't recall any deaths related to the SPORT of paintballs, i'm not talking about injury caused by punk kids doing a drive by or any misuse of equipment.

What makes paintball an Xtreme sport, is it the bright colored jerseys and guns, more tournament play, guns having a higher rate of fire than 10 years ago?

Please give your opinion on why paintball is a Xtreme sport or not.

Just decided to rant a little.

BTW, you call a sport where people shoot paint filled balls out of gas powed gun not dangerous at all?

what if your hit in the neck?
what if you get hit at close range?
what if, what if, what if...
