What not to do: douchebag hoses a rental for not calling out

Guy lays 20+ balls into a rental for not calling out right away. If you check his instagram, he does this habitually, this is not one off. Don't be that guy, call a ref in situations like this.

wow, that's unnecessary. that is why you are able to call a paint check on a player. people like this are the reason that people go paintballing once and decide never to do it again.

I'm glad that he made the video.
Now that Hollywood Sports has evidence of his overshooting, it should be an easy call to ban him from their facility.

Easy way to not grow the sport, people like this make recreational play intimidating for new players. If you are playing recball, lay off the trigger.

Nothing good happens on instagram, don't kid yourself.

It's funny because a lot of places got rid of their airball fields to get rid of those folks but they still show up. Paintball needs to get rid of these people if we don't want the downward trend to continue.

The rental guy wasn't more than about 10-15 feet in front of him too, way to leave a bunch of bruises and probably ruin someone's day. Doesn't help dispel the notion that paintballs hurt too much.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

Hope that field does something to remove people like him. It's a freaking game! No reason to come out blasting when you're playing in a mix group of walk ons with rentals.

I may not be the best at it but I try hard not to shoot a renter more than once anywhere that'll leave a welt. A couple on the hopper/pack sure, but definitely not somewhere soft. Seen many people scared off because of people like him.

yeah , one thing you have to do is control your temper. Last time I played , The game was over and my team had lost , almost everyone had left the field and told the ref , I was going back to pick up a pod that I left, well two renters , I guess though the game was still going ( who where on my team) and lit me up with 6 shots , I yelled at them not so nicely luckily the next game they where on the other team and I just focused on shooting those two out first.

6 shots can be expected especially if more than one person is shooting at you but that guy clearly laced the fella with 20+ because he didn't "call it" within .23 seconds of getting hit.

Call what? That is rather ambiguous. A new player wouldn't know what that even means.

Regardless, you can see my comments to him via IG. He clearly doesn't understand how he is in the wrong.

He MUST get warned by those who are supposed to warn him. (Ref/Manager)
Failure to do so will allow one of two eventualities: He either will not have anyone to play against one day... Or he will unfortunately lace a guy like me up for no apparent reason and get taught a lesson.

its funny, before i even saw it i was thinking, i bet this is at HSP. ive had so many encounters like this with some of the regulars there. a lot of them are just plain pieces of **** who over shoot, wipe and so on. there are some cool guys, but that field i think has a big problem with some of the regulars being douches a lot of the time.

dont get me wrong, i love the field, but some of the refs... ehhhh. its ****ty that the renter had to experience that, and will probably never go back there, but until something is done at management's level, its not gonna change. thats also why i go on off days like monday or thursday.

edit: on closer inspection, aka stalking, ive definitely played with/against this guy and he is an asshat. whwnevr i see him at the field, he gets at least a complaint a day about him.

I agree this player should be sanctioned for glorifying behavior like this.

This is the kind of player that will over shoot rentals for days because he thinks he is better, but if he gets hit with anything more than 1 ball it's over and he is throwing a fit and yelling.
