Major League Paintball Held Hostage, Day 17

Once there was the NPPL. Then there was the new NPPL and after that the new, new NPPL. And once upon a time there was the USPL, and now there's a new USPL. And once again we are reminded why Paintball is as it is. For the rest of the story check out the latest over at 68 Caliber 2.0 (the link is in the paintblog list.)
I hope you find it interesting. Many of you will perhaps also find the story a little confusing because it pre-dates your involvement in competitive paintball. Read it anyway. Others of you chose sides long ago which colors your recollection and opinion. Which is fine. And normal. In recommending this piece I'm not advocating anything. I'm simply enjoying the irony.

I'm purposefully avoiding the current PSP semi-pro brouhaha being waged at the Nation since I don't have anything useful to add at the moment and any shots I took at anybody would be like shooting fish in a barrel. Not sporting.

A quick (positive) word on behalf of the PSP. The Phoenix layout is very good and builds on last year's conceptual improvements. Don't let those corners fool you.

The corners are straight gangsta, both of them...especially the dorito corner

If we don't know and learn from our History then we will more than likely be forced to relive it...

the more i read the more im convinced Project Mayhem just might be the right option -- get rid of both leagues, eliminate 5 man and 7 man across the nation: take everything back to zero.

I blame the war-mongering scenario promoters.
