    playing footwear?

    Last years model (always a good sale) Nike football boots, the ones with the sock bit top. Keeps rocks and stuff out of your feet. It's great.

    RIP Tim Montressor

    Russell from ICC event just posted a video, stating that Tim passed from complications due to COVID-19. He complained of a headache and went to the hospital. Autopsy will reveal more, but it is due to complications from COVID-19. 36 years old and very healthy, COVID took him from us. Please...

    RIP Tim Montressor

    Absolutely stunned by the news last night. A couple different folks saying he went to the hospital with a headache and never came out. Either way, it's just a crushing loss for the paintball community world wide. He brought back the fire and enjoyment of Classic paintball with the ICC. He played...

    Where next for the NXL.....

    So Spain is 100% on, and within 2 weeks the NXL will announce (hopefully) another event. NXL UK is CANCELLED. :( For 2021, there's a 90% chance that there will be an event in Germany. Hopefully Portugal is on there as well, as they tried pretty hard to get an event there this year but it was...

    Where next for the NXL.....

    So EPBF posted a photo on their FB profile saying they're putting all Nation events into the Gandia Spain event. I personally am not sure that'll still happen, hopeful, but I don't think any form of season will be salvaged in Europe. We're planning on going to the Croatia cup because Mark...

    Where next for the NXL.....

    I do believe there is talk of 2 events for Europe. *maybe* It's being talked about supposedly, but only if teams agree. Not sure how well that'll go over with teams, but at this point I highly doubt there's any events for Europe.

    Sites in Northern Ireland

    I know there's a couple guys from the Norn that play, but they fly to B'ham to play CPPS. Not sure how much of a scene there is up there, in fact all over the Irish isle its not great. I live in Dublin, and fly to CPPS and NXL to play.

    NXL Europe Prague - Cancelled

    Couple of folks already saying Richmond in the US won't happen. So that'll be 3 out of 5 events in the US left to go on. September and November. Might be late enough to happen. With NXL Europe's last event being (most likely) France in late August...the Euro season may be done. Time for the...

    NXL Europe Prague - Cancelled

    Scheduled for the last week in May. NXL just released a press statement cancelling Prague event, and keeping a close eye on being able to run the UK event in mid July. I am cautiously optimistic that that event will still go on. However, I know of industry folks in the US who are planning on...

    They may actually close pubs soon. To maintain the social distance thing. Some wanker on twitter called out my local pub for not enforcing it. I'm like...90% of the people in their survived wars and don't give an f about getting sick. So stop blowing up our spot you twatwaffle. Spain's on...

    NXL Spain 2020 - Postponed

    Booking for house was fully refundable up until last week. Non-refundable now :( Flights non-refundable, but appealing anyway. The government recommended avoiding travel both within and outside Spain and banned indoor gatherings of more than 1,000 people in the regions most affected by the...

    NXL Off-Season Rumours, Transfers, Shens, etc......

    Yep, Spain is cancelled. Talk of it maybe being punted until October, but who knows. Season opener in Prague, last week in May. Super disappointed, but can't say I'm surprised, all of Italy on lockdown, France tightening restrictions. Possible that it happens to more countries, so why take the...

    Vegas Baby! NXL - Las Vegas

    The Ironmen! 11 years after the last win, they take Vegas. A-Rod came in and has crushed it and takes the golden barrel. Slowiak is the anchor they needed. Taking down X-Factor twice, and the Russians in the final. Wow! The best part of the whole event, only 1 team went 0-4. Tons of teams...

    Vegas Baby! NXL - Las Vegas

    This should be a very interesting event. Columbus LVL, NRG Elite both new squads coming from top 10 semi pro to play in the Pros. Ac diesel joining ac Dallas in the pro league as well. Major roster changes with Edmonton Impact. Ironmen as well have some big shake ups. The field is pretty...

    Sac DMG moves to HK. their jersey doesn’t say GI on it anymore. As that’s Dave Bains team. That’s a big change. Don’t think he’s on the coaching roster for Vegas for impact either.

    Do you remember the smacktalk site? Basically all the pros could get on there and just complain about anything they wanted. Plus the rumors on there were nuts. Ahhh the good ol days.

    NXL Off-Season Rumours, Transfers, Shens, etc......

    A-Rod Alex Rodriguez leaves Dynasty for Ironmen. Was it the lure of extra guns to sell from DYE? Was it a promise of more playtime? No idea! Hopefully Ironmen can get a win this year, I'd like to see that happen for nostalgia sake if anything.

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

    @Robbo with the film about the history of paintball coming out, and I think they reached out to Bart and Shelly Farmer already, were you involved with that? Seems a shame if you weren't. With the massive P8nt book being released this year, I'd love to see a recap of genres. Maybe a thread about...
