Paintball's first superstar, Bobby Dukes, led his team, the River Rats, to an unprecedented three consecutive victories at The Hudson Valley National Paintball Classic. On May 28, 1993, The River Rats were competing for their fourth "Classic" victory when disaster struck. Bobby, attempting one of his signature moves, was shot. Desperate to stay in the game, Bobby intentionally wiped the paint from his jersey, thus committing paintball's most heinous crime, "wiping". A zealous referee spotted the wipe and ejected Bobby from the game. The three-time champ was banned from the game for ten years and became the laughing stock of the paintball community. Deemed a cheater, disgraced and humiliated, Bobby disappeared.
