As for some sports being considered "more worthy" than paintball for being in the Olympics, I know I was aghast when they tried out bowling as a "test" Olympic sport. Paintball will probably never get into the Olympics... I think most "X-Treme" sports have a bias against them in those kind of circles. If we were to see BMX and skateboarding, or perhaps motorcross get in, then I think we might have a chance.
