For a sport trying to appeal to the mainstream this shit right here... this is what makes me not want to play. How can you call other people cocky and big headed yet be the biggest tool ever interviewed? I mean im not saying we have to wear suits and ties but damn in what world is asking if god hates thomas taylor a good question?

SOCIAL PAINTBALL DID NOT CONDUCT THIS INTERVIEW just a heads up...

look, I'm not a role model. Nor am I anyone to judge

Pro paintball players aren't role models, they are just pro paintball players

If you are looking for a "role model", or a "life mentor" inside of the paintball industry, I think you set your sights up alot higher.

I know Chad, he's a great guy.

But what you are seeing is pure HONESTY, it's some polished up bullshit like you see on CNN, that's been workshopped and focus-grouped to perfection so you can "like it" more.


And FUCK the mainstream, the mainstream isnt going to pay attention to us, until we stop crying for their attention and just focus on being ourselves. The problem with the "mainstream" is that you don't go to the mainstream, the mainstream comes to you. You think the motorcross riders, in the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona thought "Wow, let's go glam-rock and sell this sport to ESPN!!! That would be awesome!"

No, they just did what they loved to do, and ESPN came to them

I don't really care about it. There are people like this in any sport, and just life in general. He isn't the first cocky athlete, and he certainly won't be the last.

Were the questions inappropriate? Maybe. Is talking shit about everybody a good call? Probably not. But let's be honest, how much does anybody really care what this guy has to say?

I honestly stopped watching the TBD interviews Social posts after about the 2nd one. They all seem to act like total dicks.

I've got some opinions on what was said, but I'm not about to post them because turning any thread into a religious debate thread is a baaaad idea.

For me, I'll take an ounce of honesty over a pound of bullshit anyday

That was an honest interview, whether you agree with what was said, it was an honest interview with honest answers.

I'd much rather hear an honest answer like "I don't like Thomas Taylor" than "Yea Thomas is an awesome guy, I love him!" just to find out later the second answer was bullshit


Honesty > bullshit

I guess I just try and hold the sport to a higher standard. Im not saying what he said was wrong but the way he said it. Have some decency, be professional I mean damn. He can be a great guy all he wants but if hes on camera and acts like this does it matter? Its not about the mainstream as much as new kids getting into the sport would you want your daughters to look up to the dude in this video? I know I wouldn't want my son to? There is a huge line between honesty and just straight up hate speech...

Maybe its because I think this sport can be more then it is now... If say Shaun White got on a youtube channel and said anything near what he said in this interview... that shit would be on ESPN in a second and not in a positive way... I dont want a role model for myself but for my son and these kids im trying to bring into the sport if they cant see a future they like they leave and where does that leave all of us?

I think it was a little unprofessional for the interviewer to ask "Do you think God hates him?" (Thomas Taylor)

Sure, Chad could've chose his words a little more carefully, but I feel like most of his "arrogance" was meant to be taken as a joke (like the crack about "going to be" a pro golfer)

Of course there are gonna be people who hate other people, it happens in every sport. Take hockey as an example. I love watching it, not hating, but they always fight. Physically, and probably verbally too.

I personally prefer people who are brutally honest and speak their opinion without any sugarcoating what so ever. You can argue back and forth about how it's unprofessional to call people out like Chad Busiere did, and i can agree with that. But if the choice is between pro players who talk like politicians or pro players who bluntly put their opinions out there. I would pick the latter any day.

I think as a professional company, Social Paintball should not have asked if God hates Thomas Taylor, that was a little out of line IMO.

Im wondering now if it was not filmed by another Damage player and they just uploaded it but none the less I would have edited that part out...

Im not even saying it was his language or anything like that hell we all curse pretty regularly and thats whatever but just saying other people have big heads then just ripping the shit out of them with no regard for public image of your team... idk maybe im looking at it wrong...

The asking if god hate TT is a little out of line in my opinion.

I also find it funny how Chad comes off as extremely arrogant in this interview, yet he rips on west coast teams for being arrogant and cocky. Its a little ironic.

I think your missing the point... As for being adults he took care of that with the interview... Just watch it he seems like a tool. No one said it was because he doenst like somebody that has nothing to do with it its how he worded it. You can not like someone and still not completely trash them? Saying everybody hates him and he just sits back and talks shit all day is different from hey I dont care for that guys hes a cheater and that stuff doesnt fly with me... there is a huge difference between those two attitudes.

As a kid you look up to the professionals in your sport that you enjoy that should occur in paintball also... despite the current who gives a fuck mindset it needs to change. Im not even saying not to swear but have some god damn class? Who are my kids supposed to look up to in paintball if thats what he wants to play? Thats what parents are going to think when their kid wants to play and if anything contributes to a downturn in paintball it will be attitudes like this... You may not care now when your just passing through or dont take it seriously but if you plan on sticking around and want to see whats best for the sport this is not it...

whole lotta "meh" if you ask me.

I don't follow the "pro" side of paintball at all. Don't know any of the players, don't know any of the teams, wouldn't recognize any of the big names other than Greg Hastings, because of his facebook posts.

I've never been to a pro match, or watched one online... It just doesn't interest me at all. I've seen a few of the HK videos and other clips thrown together, and I just can't justify spending that kind of money to throw that much paint for ONE game... I realize they have skill and talent, but it just doesn't appeal to me at all.

Aaaand your point is? :D

Naw, seriously, like woodsball and scenario, speedball doesn't appeal to everyone. ;)
But just to ask, isn't Hastings into scenario now? Thought he was pretty big in that area these days.

Its not about mainstream or any of that BS to me its just I mean when any other team wins they are cool and chill it just seems like ever since damage has had there first good season they have been major cocks about it like just chill and play and If you win good shit like every body else. Like im sure there is a whole bunch of shit talking behind the scenes and that's whatever that happens in every sport but that doesn't mean you have to be a dick every time your on camera.

As someone who's given 50+ interviews of players for esports, this is the biggest joke of an interview I've ever seen. You don't cross ex-teammates, and if you do you'd better have some damn good reasoning behind it. It's not about mainstreaming the sport, if anyone has a history of slamming others, it destroys others willness to approach, or accept them. Asking questions like "does god hat Thomas?" Is also a very quick way to destroy your credibility.

I could care less about what it looks like to the mainstream. However he could have shown a little class. I've always really disliked people with arrogant, tough guy personalities. Should he lie? Of course not. Should he maybe have chosen his words better so that (even for his own sake) he doesn't come across like a giant douche-canoe? I like to think so.

Actually, Mike, I have to disagree with you. You may not want to be a role model, or think of yourself as one, but you are. For better or worse, you are a role model.

Same with Pro Players. So many people, young and middle aged, aspire to be a Pro paintball player, and they look up to the people that are playing Pro. They want to emulate them, so that they too can play Pro.

Sooooo by this logic, one douche bag ruins the entire league AND the entire sport?! So when a basketball player, donates 5 million dollars to charity, he makes the whole league awesome...but one player publicly says "Fuck charity" the league goes from good to bad?

That doesn't make sense, ONE INDIVIDUAL DOES NOT MAKE THE ENTIRETY OF ANYTHING LOOK BAD. I don't care what you say, there's nothing that's going to convince a logical person that just because this guy is a "Tool" that every professional player is a tool...Parents who don't want there kids to play paintball because one pro could be a fucking retard is completely illogical.

I don't give two shits about the "professional" side of the game.

Honestly it seems like a massive crock of shit- akin to two bros trying to out-douche each other at a splintery bar to win the affection of a 3/10 hag missing most of her teeth.

What this guy says, or who wins what tournament, who cheats, doesn't affect my time each weekend on the field.

I for one call for more hockey fighting vids. Forget Chad, bring on the hockey neck punching.

Poor Devil's....

I think you misunderstood. THE FLYERS ARE THE ORIGINAL Throw down beat shit in the middle of a game. They still have the record for most penalty minutes due to fighting at 472 in 74...

Because in Philly we dont play that shit son...


I know lol! I was just saying Boston has always had the toughest team.. Although the flyers and Pittsburgh are always fun to watch. Someone bleeds everytime they meet haha!

Don't be sensitive.

Who cares if he doesn't like someone. Let's all be adults here, not everyone gets along.


As a kid you look up to the professionals in your sport that you enjoy that should occur in paintball also... despite the current who gives a fuck mindset it needs to change. Im not even saying not to swear but have some god damn class? Who are my kids supposed to look up to in paintball if thats what he wants to play? Thats what parents are going to think when their kid wants to play and if anything contributes to a downturn in paintball it will be attitudes like this... You may not care now when your just passing through or dont take it seriously but if you plan on sticking around and want to see whats best for the sport this is not it...


Sooooo by this logic, one douche bag ruins the entire league AND the entire sport?! So when a basketball player, donates 5 million dollars to charity, he makes the whole league awesome...but one player publicly says "Fuck charity" the league goes from good to bad?

That doesn't make sense, ONE INDIVIDUAL DOES NOT MAKE THE ENTIRETY OF ANYTHING LOOK BAD. I don't care what you say, there's nothing that's going to convince a logical person that just because this guy is a "Tool" that every professional player is a tool...Parents who don't want there kids to play paintball because one pro could be a fucking retard is completely illogical.


Actually such actions do according to the NBA, which is why they have strict sanctions/regulations in regards to professional conduct. If the interview in the OP occured with an NBA athlete instead, they'd be fined about 50k to 100k.

That's not illogical at all if you follow any sport ever invented... So the whole Tiger Woods thing had no effect on people's perception of golf? One person huge consequences...

Lol I have never heard anybody speak bad about golf because tiger woods was a shitty husband. Talked about tiger sure but I never heard them associate it with golf. If they did I would of laughed. This has no affect on paintball but it makes damage look like assholes which apparently they are and don't care. They are good paintball players so what the hell.

yea I kept seeing banner ads for asianbeaver.com until I cleared my cache

People may not talk bad about it in fact I dont know anyone who talks regularly about golf but it did have a TON of bad publicity for Tiger Woods and when you think of him you think golf anything negative relating to something is bad and can leave a lasting impression on the impressionable like parents whos kids want to play paintball...

The bottom line is that it's paintball... Nobody gives a fuck. It's a joke, and the "professionals" are a bunch of punk ass kids who think they're hot shit.

In actually being more involved with the "pros" and my relationships with a bunch of them, I can tell you that these attitudes are common. You just don't see it when you watch videos of on-field play mixed with dub step

Honestly this is what every team thinks of XSV so hes telling the truth. Guarantee if you asked Infamous or Dynasty the same thing they would agree. XSV is just known as a dirty team in the pros and a bunch of ***** so maybe if they stopped Chad wouldn't have said that...

Most players hate Oliver lang as well, xsv is actually a very respected team in the pro leagues, idk why everyone has the impression that teams hate other teams? I will however say that jealousy and hate are very similar
