    A Red Revolution ....

    The Red Legion Wave As some of you may have guessed, I’ve had a sabbatical of sorts this past year or so. It’s not what I would have chosen but without going into too much detail, the welfare of my family comes first. The upshot of this hiatus has resulted in an unplanned/unwanted absence from...

    Chapter 1 - The Rise and Fool of UK Paintball ...

    Spike - John Amodea and myself go back a long way - he's heavily involved in the media and has a vast amount of knowledge of who's who and what's what. I think he's been writing about paintball for roughly the same time as myself, about 30 years or so. He's a well respected guy and I'm really...

    Chapter 1 - The Rise and Fool of UK Paintball ...

    Thanks - however, I would like to add this account is my personal history but there’s a whole world of paintball experiences and histories out there. Unfortunately, there are an acute shortage of people qualified to write about it. There is one exception however - John Amodea is collating a...

    Woodland Events - A flash in the pan ? ..... [Poll Test]

    Hopefully, my situation will resolve itself [No, I'm not banged up in Belmarsh …… Wormwood Scrubs actually] … as soon as everything returns back to some semblance of normality, I'll be back - as to whether that'll be a good thing, or bad? Who the Fuhk knows but my fingers will be crossed...

    The Rumour Mill

    Tony - I've got an on-going problem that's side-tracking me at the moment and I wanna say 'thanks for the post' - I'll call up Billy and see what he has to say - as you know he's a busy man at the moment but I'm sure he'll make time to respond to at least some of the issues you brought up. Hold...

    The New President of Gi, A Silly Billy? ... A brief update on the man who's just landed the top job in Paintball ....

    Fuhk Brexit - Fuhk Brexit - Fuhk Brexit …….. I'd bet my house on the fact that if we had a referendum on whether to scrap Brexit, and stay in the EU, I think there's a good chance we'd vote to stay in. I realise it's off topic but I wonder how much money has already been wasted getting...

    The New President of Gi, A Silly Billy? ... A brief update on the man who's just landed the top job in Paintball ....

    Apologies for extended delay in getting back to you Spike but I've had a few problems to contend with and I had no other choice but to deal with them. However, I think that most of the problems have been sorted, and so fingers crossed, they don't make any sort of a come-back. Who was it who once...

    The New President of Gi, A Silly Billy? ... A brief update on the man who's just landed the top job in Paintball ....

    Billy’s not so Silly …. Myself, Steve Baldwin and Billy Ceranski …. It’s hardly any secret that one of my close friends in the US is Billy Ceranski - we played together on Aftershock for three years starting in 96, and have been friends ever since. Why do I bother even mentioning this...

    New Feature on P8ntballer …..

    To start off my Hall of Infamy, I'm going to select a couple of fellow Brits. John and Jackie Sosta who are the original husband and wife double-act that started in paintball all the way back in the early 90s - They're both well-known on both sides of the Atlantic and will justifiably qualify...

    New Feature on P8ntballer …..

    I'm going to run a series of articles focussed upon the characters in our sport, some of whom were there from the beginning and a lot of them who are still around now. I'll give you the low-down on who they are, what they are/were like, what they've achieved and what they got up to. I won't be...

    Billy Ceranski Tells All .... well .... maybe not all but quite a bit actually.

    Spike - as you infer, Tom's one of the nice guys in our sport/industry and I've got a lot of time for him - he does a lot of hard work behind the scenes that he doesn't really get recognition for but that's his way and I respect that. His interview is up now and some of the stuff he sent me re...

    Tommy Cole Tells All ..... 'ish

    For those of you who don't know Tommy Cole, here’s a brief run-down:- Ever since I started playing in the US in around 1990, Tommy was known as one of the good guys - Personally, I always thought he should have been on the Waltons but he ended up as top-dog on a team called Bad Company out of...

    Billy Ceranski Tells All .... well .... maybe not all but quite a bit actually.

    PS I've finished writing up the interview I did with Tommy Cole, and I have to say, he came out with some real surprising stuff. I just sent it back to him to read over and check, and as soon as he's given it the ok, I'll post it up.

    Billy Ceranski Tells All .... well .... maybe not all but quite a bit actually.

    Cheers O, I think the reason I've highlighted Giovani's efforts is simply because he's the only example I've ever been quoted, certainly by Billy. I'm damned sure there's gonna be a whole slew of candidates on the East coast who've overcome just as much hardship, if not more than Giovani's but...
