"Paintball just isn't much as a spectator sport IMHO."
i totally agree! quite trying to make it something it's not!
why not play on a 3x bigger field this way you can't reach all corners of of the field with your shooting......it adds a big complexity to things...... make the fields square..... as big lenght wize as big width.
then..... make it limited paint... !!!!!! they keep lowering the bps..... make it a limited paint and you can shoot as fast as you want.... not it just got more complex.
shootouts are a waste, don't you just love it when a player is looking one way and another comes from the side a blast him bc he has tunnel vision? THATS spectator quality right there, make players aware of what going on rather then just laneing.
my 2 cents.....that flagger format shouds annoying and no different then whats already out there being played.... camp and shoot camp and shoot

I know how to make it a big spectator sport. Instead of a single flagger with out a gun we make all 5 on both teams "Flaggers" then put hoops ten feet high on each end of the field remove the bunkers and add an orange ball scrap the flag. ;P

Nice idea with the flagger concept, yet the only problem is getting the players to move.
Here's my spin on it if this were do able.
If we had real explosive collars and territory control linked into them. That'd get people to move! xD
Each game is +/- 30 minutes, depends on the field size.
Simply put, the collar won't start counting down to blow up if your in uncaptured territory or in your own captured territory.
Collars have 20 seconds. The timer is reset if you're out of the captured area for 3 seconds.
A territory can have boundaries marked on the field or on a map.
A captured territory involves removing the enemy flag if their is one and placing your flag in the selected area marked.
The game ends when all territories have been captured, either team is eliminated, and/or the game timer ends in which both teams are eliminated.
Standard elimination applies. Their could be a certain number of "medic" respawns. The field staff could play as them. After the medic wipes the hits, the player has a penalty of 5 seconds, before he can perform any kind of action. We could also probably limit the number of player respawns as well.

Fat and happy
Couple of notes:
Everyone under the age of 35 knows what capture the flag is, and a bunch of people older than that do too.
People who sit down and watch their first football (baseball/hockey) game have no F-ing idea of what's going on either.
Why does everyone feel the need to "fix" paintball. Everyone has their own flavor and you can play the flavor you like. What is wrong with this?
I invoke my rights granted to me by my creator and defined within the constitution of they united states. I have religious freedom to play whatever style of paintball I want.
