Actually, I've heard that paintball was one vote short of making it into the Olympics. I don't have any data to back that up though, just something I've been told.

paintball is not an athletic activity so I doubt that its getting into Olympics, second paintball doesn't need to be in the x-games because they already have their own tournaments.

Why is paintball not an athletic activity? It takes skill, stamina, and coordination among teammates just like any other team sport.

Honestly...Why does it matter?

They have their own tournaments, they play it on tv like once a year, as does the Xgames.

Painball is its own, seperate sport and it should stay that way.

If paintball was in the x-games the sport would be flooded with newbs even more than right now. I also skateboard and it aggravates me when I go to a skatepark and there is a bunch of little kids on the ramps. So just think of a pb field with 20-30 kids clogging up the all bunkers and all of them being to scared to take a hit. So in the long run I would rather not have the sport of paintball in the x-games. The only thing it would do is commercialize it.

if there are more ppl to watch and play against you can learn faster. more skilled ppl can use them to run drills or try new plans without other players at there skill lvl seeing it.
sorry i was kinda too tired earlyer
