i think it's quite about time the NPPL calls it quits, i'm a definite fan of some rules that take place in this league (semi auto capped and no coaching) but it's 100% obvious what direction tournament paintball is pushing towards (PSP)
To those who follow tournament paintball you will understand what i'm talking about, so many legitimate pro teams have dropped NPPL and decided to focus on just PSP or they do PSP and millenium across the ocean in Europe.
Seriously NPPL is failing, just today i read that vancouver vendetta officially called it quits for NPPL and other teams are rumored to drop as well, how can you run a league that stands for National Professional Paintball League when all the pro teams are leaving and you have to force D1 teams to bump up or just create new teams that have maybe 1 or 2 qualified pro players and the rest a bunch of random nobodies.
All the companies are backing PSP (besides Valken the ONLY paintball company sponsor of NPPL) PSP has PaintballAccess.com which is like an ESPN for the league and NPPL doesn't even have shit.
Now in no way am i saying that i hate the 7 man format or the NPPL for that matter but it's obvious the NPPL is on life support and the cord is about to be pulled, with pro teams jumping ship left and right along with sponsors and a very small divisional support system for tournaments and having no way to view tournaments whatsoever it's only a short matter of time until NPPL is just a memory unless they can get there shit together.
