actually lawnbowling is probably like 100X more popular than paintball. There are like 4 lawnbowling places in my town but no paintball, though I do wish the would have paintball on ESPN. Another place to ask is the Outdoor Network (we have it in Canada, I'm not sure about the States). They have sports like kayaking, hiking, mountain climbing, etc... I'm sure paintball would fall in with those. Besides, If it were on TV it would only be about dumb tournaments, who cares about that anyway (ie: most people don't play in or fallow tournaments, and couldn't care less).
O.K.----- I just got an e-mail from espn, I wrote them and asked why
paintball is never shown on their channels.
They told me and I quote"Your sport is to small not enough people are
interested in it"
COMMON NOW ,LIKE LAWN BOWLNG HAS A HUGE FOLLOWING(IT WAS ON YESTERDAY AT
Everybody in this group cries and whines at how misunderstood our sport
is and that every politician is out to get us dangerouse rouges known as
I asked people to write e-mails to diferent companies like espn and I
had --many-many-- responses saying it wouldnt work and it would be a
wast of time.
WELL MAYBE I SHOULD TAKE UP LAWN BOWLING IT SEEMS TO BE MORE POPULAR or
are people going to do somthing this time instead of whine and cry
write espn(go to there website and hit contact)
and maybe this awsome sport will get the recognition it deserves
AND DONT WHINE AND CRY THIS TIME
