I wonder if I need to post this at the field, because we have the local high school football team coming out & playing in 2 weeks. Would that be a little morbid?

Go for it Warnichek... think of it as more of a warning against potentially dangerous horseplay. Stuff like this does nothing except "paint" the sport as the domain of overly testosterone-laden juveniles.

Uh... What? :confused:

J/K, I agree with posting it at your local field. Something similar happened in a video I was watching that was taken in California coming back on the freeway from Davis (I've been along the road myself, lol). Luckily noone got hurt, they only painted a smily face on the back window of another car. :dodgy:

I can imagine it could happen any where. I was driving down the main highway about a month ago and on some of the road signs were obvious paintball marks... This is why paintball gets a bad rap!

just like that kid in minnesota that was shooting car windows with his paintball gun using marbels. he wasn't beaten enough as a child or something or should be severly beaten now then hung by his toes from a building then give him a gun with 1 bullet in it and let him stay there for the rest of his life.

:dodgy: Uhh..... just a little bit

i had recently seen something on TV about those kids driving around in a car at night and shooting people while video recording. the part i never saw was the one kid that was in on it was shot to show him how it fealt. to me, that was silly. he showed such remorse as to how it fealt being shot on the video that his lawyer recorded. he was shot like 10 times in the chest. don't know, but if he played paintball, he would know how it fealt.

another thing that i wondered about, as he was being shot, he did not have any protection on for the face and eyes.

seemed kinda rigged.

Wow, thats a pretty stupid resolution to somthing like that, I personnaly think that anyone who does driveby paintball shootings should have a much more serious punishment than to be shot 10 times, I mean, thats nothing... You'd be bruised for a few days but really, it wouldn't be anything major. When you shoot unsuspecting people w/o protection you stand a chance of blinding them...

wow... thats stupid... ive always wanted to go play in the medians out in the country... its like perfect, cuz its skinny enough to play with a small group of ppl, but its woodsy and long enough to add some of the woodsball strategy to it... maybe we could like block off traffic and do it some day :P but playing while driving? :confused:
