Bob Long, The new Tom Kaye?

So Ive been doing some thinking, and to me, it seems like Bob Long, may very well be the new Tom Kaye. Bob isnt quite the innovator that Tom was, but Bob takes hints from his customers as to what they want, he produces quality product, doesnt throw in BS you dont need, and has a cult following. Opinions?

Nah. I read a recent interview with him where he advocates overshooting opponents, intimidation tactics, etc. Better than the Gardners but no Tom Kaye/GP.

No disrespect to Bob but Bob Long is in no way shape or form the new Tom Kaye. He doesn't even come close. Nobody will be able to take Tom's place and it is a damn shame that alot of Paintballers today don't even know who he is.

Indeed it is a shame that kids my age dont know the history of the sport. Id like to see Tom make a resurgence into the sport, but I know it wont happen.

Some scenario-oriented magazine a few months back. I'll try and dig it up. I was surprised to read him advocating agg behavior.

It surprises me as well. I thought he was an advocate for UWL and returning to the woods.

No, absolutely not.

Are you trying to get yourself banned?
