18 October 2008 - 09:19 AMWell, I wish I could have Been there with Forest Fire. Work got in the way at Boeing due to the Strike.

23 July 2008 - 11:30 AMThis topic is just too juicy to not jump in on. I must say once again that the best experiences in the SPPL have been where the Refs were in charge. Utah this year was amazing, I know the negatives are being brought up, and probably rightfully so. However It was such a fun experience to know when we took the field, the refs were in charge no ifs ands or buts, Curtis owned that lower field and Karma was there to enforce it. A great moment was in our game against run, I was in the weeds on the hillside and a run player saw roughly where I was. However I had moved about 15 feet down the hill, when the run player put about 100 rounds into the brush (where I was). Then he calls for a paint check on me. The karma ref ran right past me, knowing that I was no wear clear, and ran to the spot where the run player was shooting. He looks over the bear ground, and yells out player clean. So the run guy shot the rest of his hopper on that spot. Now that is a genius ref to not give away my position at all. I was cracking up. California last year was also great (only two teams sad to say), however the refs were a group of speedballers who had a good feel for the rules, they were all over the field, and would run in at a moments notice to check hits, not just wait for paint checks to be called.
I would not mind one bit reffing at an event that my team was playing on, maybe the elite teams could ref the rookie division, or something like that. I constantly tell my teammates to be a "duck". Its our code word to just let it go. (ie the water just rolls off the ducks back, and does not stick to them and make them wet).
All Leagues have issues with reffing, just take a look at my homies Joy Division (I shoot only angels also). They wont even play in the NPPL anymore due to a game against dynasty where the reffing was non-existant. So they are playing in the millenium series.
One thing I see in the industry is the decline in the game itself, wether the economy is the major factor or just a contributing one. Speed ball is declining, however woodsball does not seem to be declining nearly as much.
On a side note, my Son (just turned 10 on Friday), played his first day of paintball on Saturday at Forestfire. He got two kills (one I helped him with by holding the end of his barrel). And he got shot in his forehead just above the mask, left a nasty welt. He cried in the middle of the field when it happened, I ran and gave him a big bear hug so he wouldnt get shot anymore, however he just told me today that he wants to wear more Camo next time. That made papa bear proud. Now I need to get some spec ops gear in his size for him.
10 July 2008 - 05:07 PMWell, if it helps out the argument any better, I can't stand egos or Borgs. So there you are both Even in my books...
Angels for Life Baby!!!
08 July 2008 - 05:11 PMIn my defense, Egos and Cyborgs do look a lot alike. The eye covers are similar. LPRs are similar. The reg even looks like an 07 Gladiator. As far as the bolt area, I thought it was a milled 06 Cyborg. My bad!
Wow, I am going to have to talk to Timber and Krazy about an indoctrination program so you and your other team mates don't get things like Ego's and Borgs confused. Similar, only because they are a stacked tube poppet marker, but beyond that...
Yes but you have to remember third I, has other skills,
I mean can you tell the difference in the photos below?

To me they Look the same, but to the skilled eye of Third I, he know what one is a Sharp Single Dimple Number 11, while the 2nd one is a Halberd Number 10 plain shaft with Bloxie Tips, see that is a skill.
01 July 2008 - 05:37 PMSounds good. This is a little early and off-topic but, as long as it doesn't conflict with anything supremely interesting in TAW's schedule, I'm pretty sure I can drag some people south instead of west.
BUT BUT BUT !!!! West is the Best.
Hey Dan did you find a Left Handed Pod pack yet?
