That's ok- I say stupid stuff all the time too.
(For that matter, how many people beat Brewtt and some of the others to the punch?)

We do know people who talk in the third person, though.


MAJOR THREAD DERAIL!

Lets get back to covering our heads in shame at how stupid those players are.

NOBODY beats Brewtt over on the LAPCO forums.

Anyways, those players in the beginning might have had a real argument?

People do stupid things in all aspects in life. And in this day in age with video being so easy and on hand folks seem to glorify stupidity. I can’t tell you how many “stupid people” videos I have seen concerning cars, yet we still drive them and they still sell. I think these paintball videos are similar. They show the worse in the group, but don’t reflect the majority.

That being said, every time something like that happens there should be serious consequences. And if I saw someone assault someone while playing paintball or when off the field I would discuss it with management. And if the police were not called or the one who assaulted someone kicked off the field/property I would tell the management that I was leaving and may never come back. Who knows, it may me or my family who is assaulted next. Fields should have a no tolerance policy for that type of stuff. And I truly want to believe that the vast majority do.

Oh, I'm not sure about that 2nd video. That wasn't at my local field.

Shartley, you hit the nail on the head. It's not so much about the image of paintball, but the safety of the players. You're exactly right, a person with those tendencies to a violent response could potentially do it to you next for making a simple unconscious mistake. I know at my field, these guys might have gone home with busted parts for even considering touching a referee, and likely also in a squad car. We take care of our own.

Issue #1
Unfortunately, THAT doesn't work...and I OWN a field!!!
Example:
"A" person says "B" person did this "THIS thing" and "B" person says "A" person said "THAT thing".
As a third person, getting this emotionally charged story 2nd hand...
How am I supposed to KNOW the truth?

The options I have:
1) apologize to you, and give your money back as you exit the property
2) eject the other party off the property
3) eject both victim and aggressor
THAT'S IT.
I lose no matter what.

Issue #2
That's how tourny ballers settle things (like cheeseballs)

We simply separate them form everyone else.
FRUSTRATING!

LMK if I missed something...PLEASE!!!
R

ps this is NOT in regard to the assault video
Sorry if there was any confusion (too many vids for this thread)

good point but, I am going to guess the Refs that were on the field saw what happened? Because if they didn't, I'd get new Refs...

Excellent point. Many fields simply won't let those kinds of players on the same field with regular players. Why infest the walk-on's with the tourney piss-poor attitute.
