Its definitely interesting to hear the backstory behind that video. It puts the video into better perspective, as I have almost always played with people who remember its a game, and don't act like hooligans.

I gotta say Tyger, I never liked the woodsball manifesto, because it seems to me that your attempting to put woodsball players on the same soapbox that most airball players tend to put themselves on. As for myself, I started with woodsball, as probably most people did, but have since begun to play speedball. Mostly just for conveniance. The nearest airball field is about 5 minutes from my house, where as the nearest woodsball field is about an hour away. Sure, I still enjoy woodsball as much as a did before, but it is just not economically effective for me to play as far as commute and gas goes, not to mention the woodsball field is more expensive. But as I was saying, this always seemed to me as if it was adding fuel to the fire. There is always going to be the stereotype between the two types of players. Speedball players are going to say that woodsballers can't handle the intensity of an airball game, and woodsballers are always going to say that speedballers are hypercompetitive jerks. I've heard both sides of it. I've showed up to an airball field in camo and been insulted to my face, and I've also showed up to a woodsball field in a jersey and been written off as a jerk before I've said a single word. But to conclude, I would say that woodsball players are no better at stereotyping than the speedball player, there are just quieter about it (which I have to say is definatly better than being flipped off for asking someone to put there goggles on), and adding fuel to the fire is just going to make the two sides hate eachother more.

But none the less, I can admire someone who really cares about their sport and passion like you do Tyger.
