: "How many times have we heard about a pro athlete being suspended, fined, or even banned because of his actions? Everywhere but in our sport. Because the sponsors will not get involved. Pepsi, Coke, or even Budweiser doesn't want a pediphile, druggy, or a criminal representing them to the general public. But, in our sport no one cares how they act or what they do."

: Then again -- not to rock the boat here, but how many people consider our sport a real sport? I have a feeling with the NXL being televised, things will start to change and feelings will shift as more light -- and heat -- are put on our sport. Would it be better if we shaped up before we were suddenly put in sudden death? Yes. But if nothing else, when it comes time for us to really shine, we're going to have to, or else there are going to be a lotta people out of a job because PR WILL count.

: "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."

: I admit, I do see some really, really bad examples of 'local' teams. Personally, I pride myself, and so does my team on being good sports first and foremost. But we have people to look up to. Pev (as in Pev's paintball, sponsor of Justice, Crucial, Supernatural, Outcast and the likes) is a REAL role model. As is his brother. And they hired Rab and Rusty has been hanging around -- and I've noted that these fellas too are good guys. Don't encourage just others to do this, start with yourselves. It will catch on.

Lol you mention the team outcast. If ever I have seen a cheating whinning piece oftricycle team its outcast. I dont know how many times I have caught them cheating and I just dont mean playing on I have caught the big redhead kid twice wiping.
