its not that they can't afford it or somthing like that. Its just an inconvenience to buy another shell and take out the electronics etc. Also some people prefer the clear ones, maby they like that they don't have to open their lid in the middle of a game to see how much paint they have left

the whole "tucked in jersey thing" is retarded, they didn't really push that hard last year, and i went to 2/5 events, right after you get in the start box just untuck it, or when you slide in ur 1st bunker(if u have the time)

Really, it doesn't affect anyone in this forum. If you have a problem with it, don't play the NPPL, that simple. They can do what they want.
That sums it up ................. I dont care for all the rules so I wont play nppl.........thx

That's your loss. But the real reason that clear hoppers should not be allowed is because it is much much harder for a ref to tell if there is a hit ON your hopper when the paint inside is the SAME color...That is the issue. It makes sense 100%.

It seams that this complaining about the rules thig has gotten way out of hand. First off rules improve the game and the sport as a whole. The sticker thing may seam a little much untill some one goes and makes a paint splat sticker and puts it on his hopper (one on the most hit spots) just to make it harder on the refs to distract them from the real game. The hopper color and sticker issue is simply to make it easier to ref and harder to cheat. Who ever said cheating is part of the game maybe right but I would love to see it end. I have already posted how I feel about the need to bounce issue.

Let the sport grow. The NPPL and PSP both want to make paintball a household sport.

As for you little guys that make comments like this is stupid or wrong, please talk to a pro (I am sure you are not one) it sucks to get pulled when the paint is in your hopper and you get pulled but even worse when an other player you shot in the hopper gets to play on because the paint matches the hopper. And when there is money on the line people will play every angle they can just to move up.

I would assume so, because the hopper is a deep yellow, with the kind of "sparkles" in it.

The reffing at the NPPL last season was top notch. The NPPL is doing everything they can to make it even better by having these rules. Sure it's an inconvienence to have to tuck in your jersey or dye your hopper, but for heavens sake it's to improve the game and make the job of the ref easier so they can focus on enforcing the rules and catching cheaters.

One quick question, did you even play the NPPL last year to be able to say the reason for the new rules is to make up for their reffing staffs lack of capability to ref?

I played Pomona last year, the reffing was a joke in 10-man. I think there were 5-6 refs on the field, most were unable to make the calls quickly and the amount of cheating was unreal. Of course it didn't help that the PSP decided it would be a good idea not to have dead boxes.

Quote:

Of course my way of thinking is too much common sense. 7 man games = 14 refs. 1 for each player. 3 man = 6 refs. 5 man = 10 and so on

Has this been proven? Yes - We do a lot of 3 man tourneys up here and we have 7 officials - 1 times keeper and 6 refs to watch the players. No EVEN TRIES to cheat. To many eyes on them.

It's a lot easier to find 7 qualified refs for a local 3 man tournament then it is to find 70+ refs for a national 7 man tournament. Do you know how much this would cost the players if they were to do this? First of all it would be near impossible to find that many qualified refs and the cost would be out of this world. Sure it would be nice to have that many refs, but it's not going to happen any time soon. Instead of more refs, we need better quality refs and based on last season the NPPL had some great refs.
