They're trying to kill paintball, at least speedball. I don't like it.

That "Evan Money" is an absolute idiot. This form of paintball takes almost everything out of the game, except the shooting. If he could take that out too, I bet he would.

I don't even play that much speedball. Either someone removed half my brain, or it's just that I actually play paintball, but that seemed very confusing to watch. Also, seemed boring and pointless, much like every other professional sport out there that they're trying to be like.

if i made up some paintball game type i would make the field way bigger and more about the flag, in current games you can shoot pretty much from one side to another, but realestate becomes more critical when you CANT hit it.

it doesnt look that fun to play, but they did hit on some valid points, and explains why paintball really cant be televised. with some modifications i can see this actually being used. it needs a bigger field, more players and more spaced out bunkers. i dont like the line of possession idea either. plus moneyball sounds absolutely rediculous.

Good point Claus, it'd be interesting to see that tried, but I do not think it would work much better than this "Moneyball." As far as the name for this "game" (if you could call it that) being redic, look at who it's named after.

that makes the game have no skill you could even cheat and just hide behind a bunker and aim for the flag. To me that makes paintball boring and even harder to watch, all you see is the flag grab and someone running.
