Picture of the Day – July 2

Todays picture of the day features two American pro paintball players at an awards ceremony down under. Word is these fellas were flown in for some free paintball, played their hearts out and ultimately helped bring their team to victory. Take a guess as to who the lucky guys are..

Guess Who?

Update: The players in question are Brandon Short & Alex Salvino.

Yosh Rau to Ironmen?

Internet rumors spread like wildfire over the last 24 hours about a major defection from the Dynasty camp to Ollies Ironmen. After several emails informing us of a major departure and a nasty note saying otherwise, our sources among the Ironmen finally got back to us.

“Definite No” to Yosh trading teams is the official word.

Final Standings for PSP Chicago Open 2008

Keely Watson & the PSP sent us the final standings for Chi-Town. Most of you are probably aware who won already but we gotta give credit to the teams that are putting in the work and coming out on top. Great job to the PSP Event staff, between rain and some howling winds you guys managed to pull it together and pull off another great event.

Chris Lasoya joins Pacific Paintball

Ponyboy Chris Lasoya “will be involved with the company’s Web Development and providing consulting in many other areas Pacific Paintball is involved in.”

Word has it hes working with PB2X & Paintball.com to bring them up to snuff. Does this mean more editorials or a real “refresh” is in the works?

This is a good sign that the league is trying to position itself for the long run. While some may not like the attitude Chris brings with him on the field, he has played professional paintball for 20 some odd years and carries a ton of respect within the industry.

Earlier this week we covered the announcement from Nicky Truter (NPPL Announcer) that the league is making the internet broadcast pay-per-view, alot of concern has arisen that the league is not holding up to its promises. Many of you remember Shawn Walker earlier in the season promising that the online broadcast would be free for the 2008 season.

Will Chris will be able to revitlize the league and bring them to their senses? Where should he start? Share your opinion in the chatbox..
