Nice recap of this NEXL season tonight on NESN at 11:30. The show is called "Dirty Water."

The whole thing seemed like a massive empire, eclipse, and Boston paintball ad. I found it amusing how the "starter" setup that T2 made had a $1500 gun, $150 pants, and a $100 jersey.
This is exactly what marketing guns has come down too. a dick waving contest. You can say all the stuff you want but until you whip it out wave it around and prove it to the world everyone will doubt you. -bigx

Yeah, it was definitely commercial. I liked the profiles of the teams and the recaps of the divisions, though. If the ads are the price we have to pay to get local paintball on TV, I'm OK with it.

True, also not having it so late at night would probably help too.

I thought it was ok. I wanted to see more paintball. It lost a TON of potential by not showcasing more of the actual event and the players themselves. The production was solid but I would have loved to see more gameplay. I know Vitale has more money and industry connections than he knows what to do with there has to be a way to wrangle some industry sponsors to really put the sport out there. Earlier in the day and an hour long with some nice gameplay and maybe convince someone who does edits to do a an awesome intro for them and bam instant success.
