30 June 2008 - 06:53 PMHow about empowering the local refs to penalize when a rule has been violated? watching from the sidelines myself and a teammate saw a player (wont say who or what team) get hit in the hand and blatantly play on, until we discreetly told the ref to check him, he was called out, but no play on penalty. We as a community have to keep this from happening to keep the integrity of the league. also my .02
Local refs are required to report this to their head refs so that a playing on penalty can be assesed. These types of calls were made during the tournament in Oregon. This example sounds like a missed call that needed to be checked out.
PDX what field did this happen on? Talking to the Head Refs on that particular field will at least lead to an investigation of the call and give the best chance for correction or assesment of penalties.
Not every call will be made correctly, that is the nature of sports. But we aim to get 100% of them right and I personally scrutinized and double checked the big point penalties/situations that could really affect game outcomes.
Your imput will help us get even better in our referee preparation and training.
I have played in this league for three out of four years. I'm not saying the officiating is perfect, but it is probably better than it has ever been. I say that from a player perspective who has been on both sides of good/bad calls.

04 April 2008 - 06:02 PMRule discussions are important, I'll admit that. That being said, taking all of this energy spent on this topic might be better spent PRACTICING and PLAYING PAINTBALL. That will be more fun, make you better, and be much more likely to lead you to a better performance than lobbying for a different hopper. Nothing personal against any player here.
Just my 2 cents. Take it or leave it.
12 March 2008 - 09:10 AMSeveral well respected California scenario teams were at the Fort Ord game as well as spec ops representation and elements of SPPL teams Gridlock and Regime. Whether or not SPIRO ejected The Scorpions from the game is pretty much a technicality. But, we all saw what we saw. Most of us took our complaints to Spiro and the officiating staff. Sandman was not alone in his complaints. He's just the most vocal and in your face about it.
The bigger issue for anyone entering this league is that this is a league that does not tolerate playing on, wiping, cheating etc. Teams will receive point penalties and players will receive tournament ejections wtihout warning for playing on/wiping. This is a players league for those who play with honor. The best thing any team can do is show up to the event and play hard and play clean. If you don't want to, the SPPL is not for you.
