Pretty sure complaining about negativity is still negativity.

Rewind the clock 7 years.

Youtube didn't exist, so you would have had to host your videos yourself and pay for the storage + bandwidth.

No 5th gen iPod Nano for you also now that I think about it.

And definitely, definitely no decent paintball pistols for you to play with.



Literally, you kids don't know how good you have it.

I have a group that I ball with that is great. No B****s. No Hotheads. Skill and Fun.
Many other places/groups are sad, Sickening even. When I state Negativity, I mean in the entire picture. Its not just in one section of the sport its everywhere: wallets, cliques, industry leaders, "cutthroat" in leagues and companies. Adults acting like children. There is no sport* that comes close.. I just wish things were different~

7 years before I would use a PGP (those are fun), 3rd POV videos.. that would have sufficed, no youtube, I would keep the videos for personal viewing to better myself (which is what the original plan was for the videos). The glare of positivity needs to spread..

Ever played adult league softball? How about adult league basketball? I have done both for almost as long as I've been paintballing, and both of those sports are significantly worse than paintball. I've seen screaming matches in paintball; I've seen fistfights in softball. I've seen shoves in paintball; I've seen blindside elbows to the head in basketball. I would hypothesize that any sport that involves legal physical contact brings out much more dangerous behavior than the whining and crying in paintball. Also, when was the last time you saw an entire team get tanked at a keg in the parking lot before a paintball game like happens dozens of time every weekend in softball and other adult leagues?

There are negative whiners, babies, and hyper-competitive jerks in every human activity. What determines if YOU have fun is how YOU handle seeing it. You're not getting rid of them, so you have to find opportunities to avoid them, or find ways to make peace with being around them.

if you want to make a difference, show your support for players, fields and businesses that make the game better and maintain the positive aspects... boycott the ones that don't.

^^^ this.

Paintball brings out all types. Some of these types are negative. Set a good example and you will do more good than harm.

Find a good field bring good people play till the bills are due.... I started my group because I wanted to have a good time. I've found that good play and sportsmanship are contagious... it's just easier to get infected by douchbaggery. So when I play I always get a group of good people together and we play and have fun. Sometimes if there are some out of control Agglets and twibs we go as our own group on whatever field is empty but often when we play we get all the newbies and Joe Niceguys playing with us and the douches either shape up, leave, or play by themselves.
