I believe he's talking about the Type A kids that were mentioned in that link - the ones that seem to be the majority, anymore. The idiots that don't have a clue about it but spout it like it's some kind of gang thing...

I play paintball with my friends and we are all 13-15. We mess around with each other and don't cheat. Yet when someone tells us we suck or something along those lines we just get more "competitive".

And they aren't real supporters. They are just idiots.

Yup - unfortunately they do make that group look bad even though they are idiots. That's the way it is in just about every group though.

1. The way people act: lack of sportsmanship, cheating, mean, cursing and beeing sore loosers. I tink that we paintball players have to change these aspects and let this sport grow and become mainstream. Thats what we all want regardless of wich "crew" we are from.

2. Why is everything so high priced???? It puts my brain in knots thinking that i payed 800 dollars for my pm8, 50 dollars for paint( Is paint really that expenssive to make). Are yoou kidding me??? Maybe thats why this sport isnt growing.Not everyone is as fortunate as me(thank god) and cant play, why cant we lower prices and change it??? Its for the greater good anyway, so why not(if they lowered prices alittle bit, call it 5-10%).

1. Price. We can all grumble about it being an expensive hobby... well worth it though!

2. The term of paintball GUN. It is a paintball MARKER. I don't like classifying it as a gun... it is one of my annoyances hearing people call them guns.
