What do you guys do with the money

SO if you guys get insurence and a free house. Many of you won those Mustangs at the Spyder Cup. And when you win those major tourney's you get around $20,000 so around $2000 each what do you spend the money on. CRACK!?!?! what do you guys do with it. YOU dont need pb gear so what do you guys use it on.

does it allow them not to have a job, is playing paintball their job, and when their career isover they find a new one that is kindof fun but a risky life too if that were the case

It probably helps pay college, buy booze, and .... stuff that average college(well mostly college) age men spend money on

Yup, the money goes only so far. When you pay rent, car payment, insurance, school, books, and feed yourself it really doesn't go very far. Remember we may have got more money this year but we also got more players this year to play more events. So you have to keep dividing the pie.

College isn't cheap. And San Diego has a lot of places to blow money. Having a life isnt cheap either. Theyre all pimps so their gf's too.

Well it is going to cost over $200K to go to over 17 events this year(That's just in cash/ not paint or equipment). So $80K is only going to cover part of the tab

Well as far as picking anybody up we really don't this year was strange in the off season. It wasn't like we picked up anybody........it was like our friends just came home. Todd and Yosh were just pieces of the puzzle that we were just waiting show up. Tyler and Adam are just joining us for X-Ball this year.

Is the money you get from Smart Parts all for tournaments/events?

Do you get any personal money? If so, is it enough to live off of?

I'm just glad to see that teams are starting to franchise and atleast get A salary. Might not be alot compared to costs but atleast its progress in the sport.

After this up coming '04 season, and the publicity that should come from the television exposure, I'm sure the outside sponsors will start to bridge the gap. More than likely, with the current trend, paintball will be a career option in a few years.

Time to get out there and get known before the proverbial "pie" is all snatched up.

Well you only need so many ppl for the tourneys then you got paint for free and any field would love to have you. Man $2000 if you have college schollar ship for grades and books it shouldnt be that much. And daaaamnn i thoguth $2000 is what my mom gets about every month or a little more but not much.

keep in mind that that is only around $2k for every tournament they win. If they don't win one (yeah right ) then they are SOL. So thats got to add to the pressure as well as the pressure of keeping grades up. Speaking of grades; do you guys miss a lot of school ?
