For those who have questions on how the Paintball Hall of Fame operates.

Hey everyone. Saw you had some questions on the Paintball Hall of fame.
When the idea was come up with we talked to some of the people that are widely thought of as Legends of the sport on what we would need to do to give the HOF the credibility within the player's eyes. So we came up with a Plan.

1) Start with the first class of people that unquestioned Legends of the sport and willing to work with other Legendary people to create a board of voters. This board set up a set of rules and guidelines that assure that this doesn't become a popularity contest. The people who are on the board and vote are anonymous. this keeps them from being able to be influenced by any outside resources lobbying for their favorite legend to become a Hall of famer.

2)The board created categories to make sure that all types of players, innovators, field owners, media, and unfortunately posthumously. As was pointed out they have focused on some of the pioneers of the sport so they can be honored and thanked in person whenever possible. I know personally, I would have liked to see both Bob and Sal be handed their awards.

3) Modern era players and such will be added but by the very nature of a HOF it becomes somewhat of a lifetime achievement award. So there are many very worthy people who deserve the honor we have decided on certain rules on class size and that when someone gets in has no bearing on ranking their importance to the sport. Being first class in or the most recent class in, they are all equally important to our history.

4) Many, myself included do not personally know the story behind every Legend that is in or will be in which is why I do not get a vote either, LOL. But that is exactly why the HOF is so important. To tell the history of how we got to where we are. Not everyone will agree with everyone who gets in or when, but I can promise it is being taken very seriously by those who do vote.

5) Finally, it made sense to us at CPX Events to partner with the Legends to set this up and financially support it by providing funds for the plaques and nameplates the Legends receive. We also work alongside the traveling paintball museum to provide players the chance to follow and be part of history.

Hopefully, I answered some of your questions and please ask anything you would like and I'll answer the best I can. Please go to the HOF page https://www.facebook.com/theofficial...allhalloffame/ and give it a like and if you want to share with your friends who play so we can celebrate the sport we love together.

FRED!

Does this mean we can get him to Living Legends next year? That's only been a crusade since Legends 1. Nobody wears Tiger Stripe quite like Fred.

We sure hope he will be joining us. We are going to do a large HOF intro since we will have the 2020 and 2021 class both going in.

I nominate myself for top poo-poster of nonsense in the PBN forums.
I also second the nomination with my other hand.

I have then gone online to Amazon to buy plastic hands in bulk for continual nominations.
I dare you to match the spending power of my stimulus check and repeated approvals for credit cards.
ALL THE NOMINATIONS

I also award myself a trophy.

I then motion to.the bathroom. I then second that motion. The army of plastic hands agree.

Time to drop another post.

The 2020 class has been picked and announced. Tim will be in the running for nomination starting with the 2021 class.
On a personal note on behalf of the HOF we are deeply saddened by Tims passing. The world and the sport has lost a true gentleman.

What about like Keely Watson? And so many others that are no longer involved in the sport -- like Oliver Lang. I feel like there are a ton of people that could be on the list instead of these other people that most probably don't even know who they are.

Your question is the answer.

The HOF is designed to make sure they do not get missed. The current list of people in the hall is not the end of the list. Each year a new class goes in. 100% people like Keely and Oliver will be inducted to the Hall of Fame. It is just a matter of time. All we can ask of the players is to trust the process and the fact that the people who are running the Hall have the best intentions to make sure it gets done correctly so people like Oliver who are clearly HOF future members but they dont miss a guy like Mike "Boogie". And for the one's who are like, " Who's Mike "Boogie"? That is exactly why we need the Paintball Hall of Fame.
I hope that helps.

I dont know, I kind of disagree with the selection process somewhat. Some of the people getting nominated are totally worthy and "HOF" type guys, and others are 100% nostalgia/GOBC type picks to me. There are guys on that list that never achieved greatness as a player nor changed the industry is a meaningful way. Word of advice, it is a good idea early on to induct undisputed, legitimate HOF type guys for at least some of the spots. I dont get it, the 2017 class is a legitimately good class, then the last two are just someone being way too edgy in their selections of who should be in a Hall of Fame

ITT: a bunch of people that think when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame starting inducting performers in 1986 that every performer prior to that year was immediately inducted, opposed to just 10 people.

The initial classes of the RR HOF also included those who were some of the best performers, highest sellers, and most accomplished artists in history, as opposed to a bunch of the inductees for this.

My comment was directed to the people that seem to be confused as to why everyone is not being added at once.

You are questioning who should be inducted. Which is a great point of view. And as I do not have a lot of paintball history knowledge one I will not stick my nose in.

Cheers!

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.
