Can we change ref back to marshal?
 
I was reading an old sign in a picture someone else posted.

Remember when paintball refs were called marshals.

Lets change back to this terminoligy. It carried something more than "ref"

...and "marker" needs to go.

Could be like air marshals with a pgp and tag people they think are wipers :P

Matty Marshall copyrighted it, when he went from a player to a "paintball celeb". ;)

What do you propose? I'm a big fan of 'marker'.

Gun.

much bigger fan of "gun" myself. I think of the term as more of a form factor. Like a caulking gun or hot glue gun.

and it might make people respect them more (in how they use them) the term marker was used to make it more PC where is i think using paintball gun might infer you need to be thoughtful about how and where you use it.

but ref rolls off the tongue easier. i'd prefer the more efficient term especially if i'm going to have to use it under fire.

some for barrel sock. barrel condom and barrel blockers are just one syllable too much.

i like to say masks, even though everyone calls them goggles.

I second this. As cool as marshal sounds... I don't think any of the current refs would understand that I'm calling out to them and it may be misunderstood for someone's name.

Gun/Marker I could care less about, whatever one I happen to say in the spur of the moment.
