Honestly, if they did merge, I think it'd be the same as the AFC and NFC merging in football. Sure, there may be benefits, but will it realistically affect the amount of interest people have? Probably not.
This is the wrong analogy because both the NFC and AFC play in one league and play against each other. Look at how in the 1960's when the AFL and NFL joined together to make the NFL, pro football became much more popular and taken off ever since.

that's one part of the equation.
people look at paintball in the big picture from a "consumer" perspective. sure, i know it's quite the investment to go and play to some tournament.
But there's no way paintball could be recognized universally as the sport it is, if there is no main and conclusive definition on what competitive paintball really is to the public in general.
there is no governing body, there is no general rules or formats applied, there is no definitive league. everything paintball related is relatively just all over the place, compared to other sports.
that's one of the things i see keeping paintball from truly becomming more of a definitive culture and discipline and somewhat keeps it within the parameters of being a hobby.

PEV's in DC? If so I've heard thats about to change. Turnout at those events isn't optimal. IMO It's more the timing than the place.
"All the angles are at angles, there's a bumper inside the bumper, and the reg is completely air flow, flowing air faster in two different directions...and then they cross eachother. The bolt kinda like an Eclipse, it's just a keets-a-bobble. There's always varr-ubles, and you've gotta remember, uhh...there's always varr-ubles" (Bob Long in the G6R Video)

But going against, I love seeing both Xball, and NPPL, and for one league to put on the same number of events that two were originally doing sounds like a difficult proposition, where as dropping the number of events would kinda suck.
