Pittsburgh Americans No Longer to Play 7-man

As of July 28, 2008, the Pittsburgh All-Americans have decided to no longer play NPPL or any other form of 7-man paintball. By dropping their concentration from the 7-man format, they can focus more on playing X-ball. Prior to their decision of only playing X-ball, the All-Americans played in the NPPL, NXL, and the Millenium Series. Even though the All-Americans will not be playing 7-man, some of their players will be guesting for the rest of the season on other teams.

X Paintball: Beyond the Paint

I happened to be channel surfing and it seems that season 2 of X paintball: Beyond the paint has begun airing today. It airs at 4:30ct on fsn. I only saw a couple of episodes from the first season because I had class when it aired last year so I’m not entirely sure if anything is different from last season.

The show started with coverage from NPPL Jacksonville 2008 and interviews with many of the top pros. They talked about future events so they may be covering those events as well but that’s unlikely due to amount of time needed for video editing. It’s pretty much the same show from what I know, just with new footage. It’s still not as good as the ESPN coverage of Commander’s Cup in 2006 then again Beyond the Paint has a slightly different direction with the show. Still, it’s nice to see paintball on tv at a decent time.

Sponsors for the show are Spyder, KEE, Rockstar Energy Drinks, JT Sports, and the United States Marine Corps.
