Hmmm... good point - forgot about "Travel Teams". And it's even worse than you say. Single elimination guarantees only ONE game... That has a high potential for "suck".

So the options are:
Another Round-Robin.
Double Elimination.

Either has the benefit of getting more money to the field owner buy making the season a little longer.

Of the two I would like to see another Round-Robin, simply because every team plays every other team, and then use single elimination for tie-breakers.

Would that be a bit more palatable to you'se guys?

I know that I expressed everything in "Weeks" but for the particularly hearty field crew, it could all be run in "DAYS".

It could be introduced as "whatever gun you want" League - but keep the hopper and paint limitations. If the league works out, add more divisions. Open, Mech, BB, Pump, Stock, and...

I think it would rock as well. We'll call it "Manufacturers Cup". You think your gun is the best... Now prove it!

Additionally - Young Guns, Adult, and Old Fart divisions (dreamin' huge, I know - but why not).

And for those who need to burn a LOT of paint in a short amount of time, "Unlimited League" .68 caliber paintballs at 300 fps. Outside of that, go for it. (yup... dreamin' super huge).

But for the record, I still think the goons with the blow-backs will have the most fun. I mean, how cocky and "punk kid" can you get with a mech blow-back...(eh... I'm sure someone will find a way).
"Sorry, I'm programmed to do that..."
