I live in Baltimore and have never been to route 40 paintball.No one have ever had a nice thing to say about the place. The refs at the place are suppose to be horrible they go on the field and play on phones and do not actually ref games. They have shields and hide in the corner behind the shield not doing anything from what I have hear it would seem very possible that route 40 was very rude to them. I live in Baltimore so route 40 is pretty close to me but I drive 45 miles to paintball adventure park because we like it their so much better.
its like anything else, it requires eyes to play. You dont see them trying to go to the shooting range with real weapons...the field owner probably was rude and that set these people off.
Ive played once at rt 40. wasnt impressed. there seems to be a general lack of professionalism at that field so its highly likely that the situation was handled poorly and spun out of control. but none of us where there when it happened so until someone who was speaks up its a moot point. personally I believe in the end the case will be dismissed but hey nonprofit groups somehow can afford the best lawyers so who knows.
You guys are making some pretty wild assumptions. I go up to Route 40 as much as I possibly can? Why? Well yes, its true, the refs do sometimes play on their phones, but go ahead and tell me that you haven't while working your job? They have installed multiple safety nets and are really on top of their safety, giving safety orientations, making sure masks stay down, etc. The refs do not hide in the corner with shields. They make sure everyone is safe and having a good time. Make sure you actually visit the place before you cast your judgment.
