You said that since you don't have the "koodies" (cooties?), Coronavirus hasn't been an issue in Florida and it's all sensationalism. You were only warming up, later contradicting yourself by saying Tom gets a pass for keeping everyone in the dark because it's been a screwed up year. So your opinion is WC should happen but everyone should just guess on the details that the NXL has no obligation to provide because COVID? Should SP teams book tickets and hotels? For one weekend or two? Tom's comfortable spitballing ideas on PBN and a podcast and industry people are posting that they "heard" the city approved the event, yet there's still zero validation, updates or communication.

Then Mr. Charlie said it's been announced that World Cup is happening...but that was never announced. I noticed the similarities between you two and lumped you together because you both perfectly fit a certain stereotype and it's funny.

What are the many things wrong with my post? If me talking about the terrible job paintball's leaders have done is "crying", why did Damian Ryan get fired for saying the same things? I guess ignorance truly can be bliss but it won't help bring players the biggest paintball event in the world, which they foot the bill for. Everyone forgets the NXL doesn't do this out of the goodness of their hearts; they are taking peoples' money to do it. Some unrelated questions - what are you actually selling? Why set yourself up to get (repeatedly) kicked in the nuts? Why does paintball attract so many people like this?
This is why the NXL sucks. So obnoxious to just keep waiting and not give details. Its too late at this point for most to get off work for this event plus book tickets and rooms and such. They need to just accept its ****ed and cancel the event.

Itís still up in the air if all of the Pro teams will be able to play. It may be more of a local/regional event.
Based on what? No one at NXL leadership has said anything close to the local/regional thing.

I have heard him say they want it to happen and they're working on it happening.

I'm a little disappointed at the lack of information being put out to keep people informed.

I'm waiting for an official announcement for cup. My team is ready to go but we need something concrete. Clearly the organizers know this & there is a reason they haven't announced good/or bad.

I thinking that if you're flying you're going to want to know if it's happening or not in the next couple weeks to book your tickets.

I am getting lazy with this
A week later and still have the same questions

Or arrange rental cars, or arrange rental house, or arrange time off from work, as some of us donít have as much freedom to come and go.

Fun Fact - I knew a guy who is a pro disc golf player. It was his sole source of income.

The lack of info is silly. I'm sure they are just trying to hold out as long as they can before making a big decision but Cup is supposed to be less than 2 months away. I live close enough to drive and can get PTO fairly easily but dragging your feet makes the logistics of fitting this into people's real life harder by the day.

Granted I haven't flown anywhere since February so what I know is all second hand but the people I've talked to say that flights are getting full again, they're just offering less of them.

Like somebody else said above hotels, rental cars and all that go along with it I would normally want to book a month out so I didn't get raked over the coals paying last minute prices.

What is everyone’s thoughts on the details of the press release? Does anyone else find it a bit obnoxious that literally every sport in the country is not allowing fans, while meanwhile the NXL plans to do grandstand seating and a beer garden?

Irresponsible. That's my thoughts.

Unless there's going to be assigned seating with families being separated from each other, this is horribly irresponsible.

It's outdoors. You don't spend much time breathing the same air that someone else does for more than a few moments at most, not like being inside with recycled air. You are also wearing a mask. NXL doesnt have to cater to the masses like the NFL does. To me, it seems rather safe all things considered.

Also, don't feel safe flying? Drive a car. Don't feel safe spectating a sport? Don't go.

I'm not going to cup, covid risk and lack of time to prepare are part of my reasons.

I'll just stay home and play MtG online vs Nick...

Doesn't change my opinion on it. Or the opinion that the virus can (and sadly mostlikely will) use this event to spread.

Thats my thought. I get the whole "MUH FREEDOM" but the NXL needs to see how obvious of an industry leader they are, and if this event goes to **** and we see news sites spreading a story that XXXX amount of positive cases all traced to one paintball event, they are going to look so bad to the non-playing public and industry sponsors. They could have just did a closed, private event, with a capped amount of teams and no one would have complained. But now its spectators, beer garden, vendor shows, etc. Do we really have the expectation pits will be cleaned frequently, when the scoreboards dont even work on divisional fields half the time?

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.
