Midwest weather can be absurd.
When my kids were little I drank enough at Halloween the cold in Northern Iowa didnít bother me so much while walking around with them.

I think that paintball's bottleneck as a professional sport is that its audience and consumer base is mostly amateur players, not merely spectators. This may be an opportunity to work on making paintball easier to watch/follow for those less familiar with it.

We need either more explosions, more fisticuffs, and/or narration by either Sir David Attenborough or Morgan Freeman



/s just in case

My girl says it all the time when i bring her, “its hard to follow cause theres so much going on”. As an outsider i take her opinion seriously, even though i know where that mouth has been 🙂
But i think between on body cams, gun cams, ref body cams and drones, the game could be covered well enough. Make the rock an announcer, sponsor everything with redbull/monster, have a free hat night, and a halftime show where somebody slips a nip. GG.
Lets face it, we dont want the game to be serious, Its our f*** around activity, too hard to get drunk on field with a fsn cameraman in ya face lol. Im honestly starting to think thats it. Theres no way a bunch of beach hippies from cali can make skateboarding an empty pool into a globally recognized sport with PAID athletes, But paintball cant break out of its own box? 7th place on a vert gets you a benz, and yet the best of us still have to haul roofing shingles and sell our used underwear to make ends.
Maybe we can all pitch in and rent out disney, they seem eager to make money, bunch of go getters.

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.
