Dye comes in to make sure no on think there team is cheating.
DYE techs check out the guns, and they said they found no issues.

WMD theory

Almost sounds as believable as the vapors not having a cheater board in them.

The official PSP response to the incident as well as additional sanctions against the TonTons just dropped.

Quote:
Originally Posted by PSP Press Release
PSP has come to a decision regarding the incident at the PSP West Coast event in which the professional team TonTons Flinguers had numerous guns in excess of competitive allowances and safety standards.

Penalties for the hot guns were issued during the event per the PSP rules governing game play.

PSP has decided that additional sanctions are warranted following review of game footage, testimony of officials on site, examination of equipment, and interviews with TonTons players.

One or more members of the team willfully took the field with intention of playing the game while knowing their markers were in excess of allowable speed limits. The players in question showed an unjustifiable disregard for the standards in which tournament paintball can safely and fairly be conducted.

The number of players and the degree of excess warrant the additional sanctions. PSP feels the actions fall into the area of unsportsmanlike behavior.

As such, all TonTons matches during the event in which the incidents occurred will be forfeited. The TonTons team will receive zero seed points for the 4th event. Event standings for other teams will be adjusted accordingly.

In addition, the TonTons team will be allowed to play PSP events on a probationary basis through Nov 1st, 2014. The specifics of the probation will be made clear to the team. In general, any violation of the probation will result in the entered team and all players being suspended indefinitely from PSP events, as well as the organization, TonTons Flinguers, being barred from competition in future PSP events.

Willfully setting foot on the field that far over safe limits should be, at a minimum, a year suspension from the PSP. Forfeiting points in a division where points don't even matter isn't very stringent.

Wait. Just re read it, slowly this time. I thought it said they were barred. Probationary period seems fair.

I would've thought at least barred from this World Cup then probation next year based on what they saw.

No. They almost did but their gun penalties took it away from them.

No. The penalties they incurred due to the gun violations pretty much slammed the door on them that game!

The TonTon's are a fun team to watch (Axel is a beast). They work their ***** off and run pretty much the same 5 guys point after point. I want to be positive and say it was an honest mistake but 4 out of 5 gun's shooting hot is a bit of a stretch to me. I could see 1 out of 5 like Shock had (shock gun a hot gun penalty at the same time too) but not 4 out of 5

I still believe the most damning evidence of the situation was that the PSP stated during the webcast that they had received reports prior to the tonton/aftershock match that tonton players had been shooting hot.

This suspicion was reaffirmed when the tonton back players were found to be shooting excessively hot when checked during the match.

I honestly wish they had hit them with harder sanctions. I can't believe this would happen at the highest level of the sport. So sad to see.

Yes, I believe it was. The penalty was also caught in the video above.

Lulz, didn't the Tontons make a statement claiming they knew nothing about the guns being hot? If it sounds like and dog and looks like a dog...

While I personally hope that what they said in their statement was the truth, 4 out of 5 guys shooting hot is pretty out there. Glad to see that the powers that be are making sure that, at the very least, teams are covering their bases.
