On Season 1 Episode 1 of Glee at about 30min in there is a scene where football players shoot another play on their team for being a part of Glee club.

I just think that it is terrible for Fox to put a scene that has a negative view on paintball in to one of their shows that is obviously seen by the public. As if we don't have enough problems.

Dude, honestly, I see shit like that all the time on TV. Half the time it just shows people being shot by paintball guns out on the street or whatever (like you see above), and the rest of the time it'll have people playing but taking it WAAAAYYYY too seriously.

(I just noticed something strange. See above how they're only wearing goggles? Compare that with below, where they're wearing full masks. Huh.)

Anyways, the point is that you're never going to see paintball portrayed in a serious, authentic light on TV. Hell, even that Time Warp episode fucked it up, and they were supposed to be scientific about it. If they botch it, so will everyone else.

In case you haven't seen it...

I already hated glee so....

and they wont ever wear mask because they hide facial expressions, and expressions are a huge part of acting and portraying emotion.

Fuck Glee.

And what the fuck does "Glee" mean? What a stupid fucking name. Give the show a proper name, like "We suck at vocal music" or "That-motherfucking-vocal-whoring-show"

Dammit!

You laugh, but I've seen people play like that. :rolleyes:

Edit:

280 mph = 411 fps

320 fps = 218 mph

So did anyone else notice in that time warp video where the chick falls down screaming and the guy walks up like "are you ok" then she throws something at him... he freaking points the gun back at her and shoots 2-3 times point blank even though she had no mask!!!
WTF?!

and they were shooting way hot, too! Though aparently it hurt so damn bad, but the chick didnt even flinch when she took a shot to the bare inner thigh from like 10 feet away. Yeah it hurts real bad! Posted Image

those guys are jackasees and pussies. I know 5 year olds that play paintball and never complain about it hurting.

And the field owners/refs really suck. People taking off their masks on field? People shooting hot? People shooting at other people POINT BLANK with NO MASK ON?!

gleek sir...and i am...the point of glee using paintball in that fashion is for douchey popular kids shooting geeky kids in the glee club...yes it looks bad but by the same token they have the same douchey kids throw slurpees in their faces every other week...

just because the douchey popular kids had the paintball guns shootin at the geeks doesnt mean its strictly associating it with paintball...they same kids shooting also play football in the series...so as bad as paintball is made to look so is football and every other sport they are associated with...the writers of glee are not picking out paintball...

and glee is not a new show...its in the second season...and in comparison the time warp video was much more fucked up almost strictly for the reason of him shootin her while she flipped her mask off...

also figured that this was somewhere in MA seeing how he was rockin a hurricanes jersey and the other guy was rockin a boston somethin jersey...( i think red legion)

poor exposure for paintball would be if one of the characters strictly attacked paintball...not just an abuse of it...

Nope, TimeWarp had terrible researchers for their statistics. Not to mention, they were with Femme Fatale... I havent heard anything about them in several years, and in my opinion they are all into paintball just for sex appeal and to whore themselves out for attention. All of them are poor representations and its just giving the sport a bad rep.

All shows give a negative interpretation against paintball. The public vies shooting fake guns as bad, and guess what? The media feeds on that. Surprising, right?

I'd love to see time warp do a video about baseball bats. Because, y'know, people actually die from getting beaten to death by baseball bats, not being shot by paintballs. Why attack a sport like Baseball, though?

I've said the exact same thing many times. How come they don't sell the public foam or rubber bats so that we can't hurt ourselves or others? It's fucking absurd.

The Big-Bang theory is awesome. (That's the pics where they have the blue paint all over them).

The closest thing i've seen to a realistic paintball portrayal was the movie Failure to Launch. You know someone was close to paintball in the direction of that movie... couldn't find a clip on youtube tho.

WTF if you watch like the last 30 seconds where the chick fakes being hurt, she trys to hit the guy with a head band and he shoots her.. And shes not even wearing a mask wtf it seems close to the face.. like wow that is so fucked up.
To those brave men and women who fought for their lives, who fought to save our lives. We stand at attention in honor of our fallen ones.
