I thought I heard something like this in Euroland but I don't see how they could inforce it on playsers to one wear certain gear in all divisions. The only reason it works in major sports is because the clothing companies pay millions of dollars to the leagues to have the teams wear their gear so people will see it and buy it. That module will never happen in paintball.

I play in the millennium series in Europe. No restrictions on our gear outside of protected colors, and whatever deal you have with your sponsors.

Are you able to elaborate at this time or is it not a topic that can have specifics posted on yet?

I don't have all the details. I honestly expected PSP to post something by now.

My understanding is that it will apply to lower divisions as well.

Well that's messed up.

Someone will be on here shortly to yell at everyone else for not having a business license and knowing all the expenses of a PSP event. Also to enlighten us that other sports do it.

Well as someone working for a small business making guns, This just feels like a move for the larger companies to attempt to kill off smaller manufacturers.

We make guns that people have fun using so they can shoot something different that they love. Its great that they think we can afford any sort of "Fee" to allow a team to use our guns in their league but the reality is that anything of this nature is just going to close doors before they can open to keep money at the top of the chain.

Of course its all TBD but the idea is really disturbing.

Lmao. So true it's almost not funny.

I'm hoping to see some kind of press release or statement for this soon. It's getting awful close to the season for information like this to just now be making it to the players.

... after someone fails to realize Dye's financial woes may have something to do with this, and claims the PSP should have just taken the money raised by this policy out of its enormous profit margins or gotten sponsored by the local mom and pop pizza shop.

This is based. Off the web cast.

Joe Schmo team wears "non psp participant" gear and gets on webcast there for giving that brand advertising Throughout the match.

Psp made no money off that and now is deciding to gamble.

Probably a terrible decision on,y shrinking pIntball instead of growing it.

You would think the PSP would put a sock in it with all the bad publicity they have been getting lately. Now they pull this. LOL. I don't get it

This isn't uncommon in professional sports, for example fees are to be paid per category of gear(helmets, gloves, sticks, etc) used by each manufacturer in the NHL.

But to require at lower levels? Ridiculous

yea but the PROS GET THAT STUFF FOR FREEEEEE. I just put in an order for an alien deception and I doubt Jack has the funds to pay psp so I can use my gun at MAO.

If this happens, you can bet I wont be playing at PSP events.

Ok, your right, your the expert on how much a gun can change a teams finishing throughout an event and how many top placing teams have been looking into other options this season, my bad *rolls eyes*


Anyways, John said he would try to get an official comment on the matter and post it here so i guess ill just wait for that email.

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.
