While i am glad your friend plays PB and won awards...this contest does not take that into account. There is no listing of her awards or honors. Just a picture. This contest doesn't rate paintball skill, winning streaks, stats, or anything related to PB...it is purely to rate looks. She could play World of Warcraft only and still win without ever having played PB... Sure it would be nice if the chic played PB, but she doesn't have to. While i am sure you could try to rate one on her intelligence, or paintball skill...it is kinda hard to ascertain that from a picture alone...usually you just go by looks at that point. :facepalm:

As to getting accolade for her and her team...i guess that depends on who you ask. Most guys that look at her aren't going to go "Oh i want to play paintball with her on my team or play with her team" they are thinking something far more dirty about her and her alone. :pirate: And her team has nothing to do with it.



Valid points. Though some of the things she has done WITH our team makes people want to play on our side, admittedly I don't care either way though, I play to win games, She helps tremendously with that!

being female can get us special awards? This is silly at least in my opinoin, ecspecially because its going to be a beauty contest more than anything else...even if it was a best female player award that was a contest of skill, like a local field hosting a contest. That would be cool, but this would be no fun....

Well, if it was a contest of skill, it would just be a contest to see who would get 2nd place after Brittany Wagoner takes 1st.
That girl tears it up.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

Catshack posted on MCB they are going to make including a Bio with each pic a requirement. Now i don't have as much of an issue with this. Thank you Tom. :laugh:

I am not trying to take away from her accomplishments. I am happy to see that she did all that, that rocks. Was just saying.

The contest is for 18+ girls only



Paul, you might want to check the age rule again. It clearly states on the Catshack page the contest minimum age is 16. If minimum age is truly 18, then one or more of the contestants would therefore be disqualified.

I posted my views over on MCB, figured I'd post them here... gonna try to avoid a flamefest though.

I don't have a problem with Tom/Catshack at all. However, I have discussed this contest with him before and am dissapointed that more changes were not made this year.

I do not see the harm in not only asking for bios, but posting them along with the contestants. I want to know what a girl has done for the sport- if anything. I don't really care what she looks like.

I also think that in-game pictures would go a lot further than the T&A that seems to be prevalent... I honestly don't care what you look like scantily clad, I want to know if you deserve a paintball-related prize. There are plenty of contests out there if you want to know if youre hotter than anyone else.

The second you start getting sexy pictures in, people start voting for the hotest girl rather than the one that actually deserves it. Which is fine, if thats what you want the contest to be... but you need to decide what message you want to be sending to your readers about what you value in girls.

Beyond that, if you decide that you want the contest to be a sexy one, I feel that allowing 16 year olds to compete is a bit... creepy. If it isn't a sexual contest, why are you allowing pictures that are sexual in nature, from anyone of any age?

While the option is there to pose in playing gear (and that is certainly what I would do if i choose to compete), and it is certainly an individual choice as to what picture is submitted, I am dissapointed to see the emphasis be on pictures rather than on actions.

Am I the only one who can't open the link? Comes up with page not found??

I can get to the section by going through the site, but the link in the first post doesn't work.

Link wasn't working for me either man, I had to do the same thing you did to get there.

I like playing along side Total Resistance because of you Brian, Toni is just icing on the cake... jk. Seriously, the handful of times I've played w/ you guys she was definitely in the thick of it making a difference. She'll have my vote.

I do agree with the 16 thing. I would much rather see 18 as the age, at least.

Thanks Ger, maybe I should enter the contest. I do look awesome in a tube top! Ok, maybe awesome is the wrong word, maybe disgusting is the right one...

well, if you have looked at the contestants on the site ( have you ? ), then you would quickly see that it is NOT a beauty contest ....

and we all know that the ONLY reason gurls play paintball is to meet dudes ... :wub:

let the flames begin ... :angry:
