Mr. Curious has come up with one that has me scratching my head. And, no, it's not psoriasis and the kids are too old to bring home head lice--or come home at all. Anyway, all we heard in the off season was one theory or claim after another about how the paint producers got in the fix they're apparently in. From the relatively insignificant volume of paint tourney players shoot in the grand scheme to how ROF was being lowered to save paint or about how prices are too low or too few peeps are shooting too much ad infinitum. About the only thing everybody agrees on is that the paint producers are in a fix.
Mr. Curious wants to know why paint manufacturers keep sponsoring leagues if it's a losing proposition.
Nearly every league of any consequence is sponsored by one or more of the paint producers. Is it a self-destructive urge they can't resist? An inability to re-think the old ways of doing things? A desperate fear that their brand needs to be front and center even though the old media is gone and tourney ball shoots a negligible percentage of paint produced?
Mr. Curious doesn't get it and neither do I. What do you think?
