: Why are we always hearing about "professional" paintball players cheating, whining, swearing, etc.?

Its in their nature, since they get paid whether they win or lose its just natural for them to seek every possible advantage.

: If any of you have ever been to a World Cup then you will see a whole lot of this going on. Professional paintball players are supposed to be just that, professional. What kind of pro sneeks into the trees and starts shooting onto the playing field? Okay that was last year, now this year we have players giving the refs such a hard time that the refs are resigning.

Well now you have taken an example of something out of the ordinary but not too extreame. He*l I have caught many pros this year with ILLEGAL guns (full auto, burst, ramping up of the velocity etc) I even nearly was stabbed by a pin from the gloves of a pro playing using the needles to change settings on his gun while playing. I believe this is just the start of more to come.

: Professionals and other top notch teams should be setting the example for the rest us, especially impressionable teen players who are looking up to these guys.

They are on how to win at any extreame. Its all about winning.

: Teams on a local level also need to start shaping up. Stop swearing and arguing. Instead, give a good impression to the newbies and the parents who show up to play/watch. Be friendly to them, don't act cocky. I commend those who are already doing these things.

Well I dont think the swearing is gonna stop we have tried to stop it at all levels from newbie 10-man to NXL-PRO and its just natural to swear what we are concentrating on right now is the hate swearing (calling your opponent nasty names from across the field), and of course any motions to fight your opponent thats all 10 minute misconducts and are heavly inforced.
Your intentions are pure and bring us back to the way the game should be played but I think rather neive in this day and age when winning on sunday means selling on monday.
