Support Paintball

Now all we need is the bumper sticker. Support Paintball. Who knew it was that easy? I mean once we's united in our support of paintball everything will be swell. Won't it?

I don't know about y'all but I just want to tear my hair out when I read some of the mindlessly myopic well intentioned blithering spewed out on the internet. Fortunately I have so little hair left it's hard to get a good grip ... but anyway. The current source of my all-out-of-proportion and increasingly violent urges is the vapid notion that all that is required to put things right is for everyone to support paintball. (Stupidity make Baca angry. And you wouldn't like Baca when he's angry.)

Of course it gets even worse when some of these geniuses start fleshing out the details of their support. Support paintball by playing a tournament series. Support paintball by buying more stuff. Look, I'm all for supporting paintball but I have no patience for empty platitudes or marketing slogans masquerading as a call to action. You want to support paintball first stop for a second and try and figure out that supporting paintball doesn't necessarily mean blindly supporting the status quo. You want to support paintball? Get some of your friends together and go play.

On a similar note, I just love hearing people tell us that all we have to do is be good ambassadors and lead by example to get people to stop being arseholes and then people will start having fun again and all our troubles will be over.

Yes, all we have to do is change human nature. It's that simple.

Okay so who takes the lead on the bumper stickers and design? Sounds like something the boys at Pro Paintball could handle. E-mailing them now.
Great Idea Baca! Everyone loves Paintball and Everyone loves Stickers! lol

Ok..so I'm confused. Should I get a bunch of friends together and go play or should I? I'd hate to end up supporting paintball in the wrong way!

Should you or should you? Yes, you should.

Btw, it's not confusion, it's Alzheimer's but we appreciate the effort.

The 'buy more stuff' option sounded good to me. Surely is everyone bought 'more stuff' we'd be back in the hey-day before anyone can say 'patent on 50cal equipment', wouldn't we?

I love the buy more stuff idea. But I think the sport will rebound with the economy
