Doesn't Dye own a majority share in the PSP? PR has not been to good to them lately.

American people are some of the biggest hypocrites in the world. Good lords I nees to win the lottery and get out of this country. Paintball players are aome of the biggest cheaters, I see it constantly, hell I've done it!!! And don't tell me you haven't, don't tell me you haven't wiped, steped outta bounds but stayed alive, etc. Jeeze, friken Rusty Glaze wiped a massive hit on his hopper off the break a couple years ago. Players cheat its the bottom line.
Also from what ive seen with the TonTon incident, is they weren't acually shooting as hot as what was recorded. One gun shot ~350ish? On the first shot only! Then fell back below 300, and wasn't that gun sitting in the sun, and what does the sun do? Heat up stuff, and what happens when you heat up air? Boom more pressure!!!

The PSP ran off an amazing and historic team over some contrversial bull****. I blame the psp, and sympathize with the TonTons.

You would think if it was a financial problem Dye would give them more support and cover more of their playing or travel costs. I mean, It is their best team afterall, at least in my opinion...

You typically want your best teams playing the biggest event of the year. I believe they were run off aswell, I don't buy into the whole financial thing.

First of all, stepping out of bounds and wiping =/= safety violations such as hot guns

Secondly, shooting hot on purpose =/= shooting hot on accident

Thirdly, it was 'not' his first shot that was the hottest. They tested his gun 3 or 4 times and each time it was 'hotter'. Meaning that the faulty o-ring in the reg is a bunk excuse that the Tontons new was bull**** when they tried to give it.

Fourthly, I sincerely hope that someone with your contempt for our country is not representing us as a member of our armed forces.

Just watched "the breakdown" regarding this situation. Reading between the lines you can somewhat tell that Dye pulled their funding after all the bad press the hot gun fiasco brought to that company. I wonder if we'll still see the Ton Tons with Dye in the future.

I dont have contempt for our country, I love our country. I fought for this country. But ive been stabbed in the back too many times by fellow americans and our leaders. I syand for what this country was built on, not for what it has become.

He is pretty damn right.

Wasnt the official statement from the PSP that only the first shot was hot because of reg creep? Yes TonTons did know that but no intention to hurt someone or get advantage because after the first shot it was below 300.

Merica! Go shutdown your government! O wait...

Wiping, ect. is just as bad as a hot gun in the cheating world. How some of you can distinguish the difference is beyond me.

The ONLY difference is that a hot gun could hurt someone. Other than that cheating is cheating. I won't sit here and beat up on the TonTons when I would have to do the same for the other teams.
The most bizarre logic I have heard. Using your incredible logic going 66 in a 65MPH speed zone is the same as shooting someone - a crime is a crime. This whole kick about paintball cheaters is a joke. Paintball and its players are no different than NFL players, NBA players, etc. Are you disgusted every time there is an offside penalty? What about fouls in basketball. Does it just burn you that some scumbag player cheats and fouls someone?

Dude seriously I hope you do not vote.

no. Fabrice's statement said that. Lanes statement did not say only the first shot was hot. Feel free to check the psp forum, but here is his exact words

1. Teams claimed TonTons were shooting hot on the break.
2. If PSP took the word of every team that claimed another team was doing something illegal (after they lost to them) and PSP went and looked into every claim, we'd A) have to make the events 8 days long; B) have to hire a team of forensic investigators to swing into action 46 times a day at the events C) have to raise entry fees to $8600 per team to pay for the CSI unit to patrol the events
3. At some point enough people gave credible info for PSP to consider the fact that something may be going plausible
4. Two separate individuals on the PSP staff watched the first 2 points of the TonTon Shock game and independently felt there were peculiar activities regarding the way the TonTons were handling their guns during chrono and prior to game start
5. The guns were spot chrono'd by surprise and 4 TonTon guns were indeed shooting hot. 1 slightly hot, 2 extremely hot, and 1 unbelievably hot. Aftershock also had 2 guns shooting slightly higher than 300fps.

6. Some TonTon equipment was confiscated and checked by techs.
7. There's no evidence that the guns were intentionally set up to cheat. Nothing about the guns and what they were doing would have given any real advantage to the team using them.
8. That doesn't mean it was just simply a accidental mistake however.
9. The chrono's were not malfunctioning. The issue had nothing to do with temperature change or paint size.

The TonTon's are not dirty cheating bastards - or at least the facts of this situation do not prove or even lean toward that conclusion.

The PSP did not knowingly let them play games with break out modes because we were too lazy to do anything, have no regard for safety, or any other of the ridiculous reasons people have surmised.

Additional penalties will be forthcoming. There is no evidence that the TonTon's engaged in intentional acts to gain advantage over teams and no evidence that malice was involved. Knowing the actual facts about what the guns were doing and/or not doing - there's no reason to believe the issues gave them any actual unfair advantage during competition.

Be that as it may, what they did was unsafe, irresponsible, irrational and outside of the conduct expected from any team - especially a professional team. It is conduct that we do not take lightly and conduct that will not tolerated.

PSP will release an official statement regarding the penalties and future sanctions imposed once we can get everyone home from the event and have the time to give the situation and sanctions proper thought

They admitted to taking the field knowing of the problem. That's why there were extra sanctions brought forth.

You seem to grasp how the marker would act with that o-ring not functioning but why are you denying the order of the chrono reads that even the Tontons admit to? The LAST shot was the one that was 352, not the first one.

Never mind the 21 international laws broken regarding nuclear arms, right?

I love how all the Europeans are in here crying foul play and slinging mud. Sure, there is our fair share of French jokes but you guys are taking it to a whole new level with your inability to accept any form of responsibility for this. I feel like you guys would be arguing for Robespierre at this point if it suited what ya'll want to believe. (See, I can bring up irrelevant history too!)

And i love how hypocritical americans can be..
A lie does not make the truth.. They did not go on the field knowing that they were shooting hot.. Even the psp found the broken regulator..
This team has been around for more then 25 years, and i believe them a lot easier then any "biased keyboard comando " on here..

The extra sanctions the psp has given the tontons prouves that the psp is biased. If you sanction entire team because 1 guy was shooting very hot and none of the other teams that are also shooting ver hot, then yes you are biased.. Especially if you talk about sportmanship but let others get away with worse.. I did not see any sanctions on the aftershock coach for showing the middle finger.. And i am not even talking about some off the other videos that show american teams..

In the final between team usa and the uk 2 americans had hot guns and the uk had 1..
You can watch it on the webcast.. Does that mean that they are cheaters ? No, they turnned their gun down and thats it..

In the past there has been proof of american leagues being biased with european teams.. Ask joy division..

You would think they would want to just come into World Cup, play good shooty ball to put the whole shooting hot issues from WCO in their back pocket, even though it tarnished the Ton Ton's name in competitive paintball. I know from what they did at the last event, and with the "excuses", that I have lost all my respect for them and don't care to see them play another PSP event again, who wants to fallow a team that cheats and shoots hot so they can win?

Maybe they are just letting the overblown criticism die down. Other than the hard work and pride "pro" paintballers have, they aren't making millions playing a game only to get berated and criticized. The hot gun infraction was an easy to understand infraction for even the newest watcher of Paintball. Everyone who plays knows about adjusting their speed. As I said earlier about Pride... Is spending the amount of money needed to come over here and practice, stay at a hotel, eat, and play financially feasable to only be criticized? They aren't going away and I will be glad to them soon.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
