Paintball Fields & Rules : Aggressive Paintball Behavior


Hi. I’m Robert Stewart with hill13.com. Now
we’re going to talk about something that a lot of experienced players and field operators
really don’t like to get too close to because it’s just not a pretty subject. And that is
aggressive behavior. It’s one thing to play the sport of paintball aggressively, to charge
your opponents, and to really put it on them when you can. It’s another thing entirely
to allow that aggressive playing style to translate into aggressive behavior toward
your teammates or the opposing team or the referee. It is simply not acceptable on any
reputable field to in any way, intimidate or threaten violence to another player or
a member of the staff of that field. It isn’t tolerated because it’s unacceptable, and it’s
unsportsmanlike conduct. If your adrenaline level is so high that, in the middle of play,
you become angry or fixated on another player, don’t shout at them; don’t call them names;
don’t curse at them. If you have an issue, you take that up with the ref. You don’t take
it up with the other player. You don’t get angry and aggressive and pull your mask off
and start saying things that are going to lead to a physical confrontation. Again, it’s
simply bad sportsmanship. If you have a player on your team who’s growing progressively more
aggressive as the day goes by, you keep an eye on him. You don’t let him make a mistake
for which is going to get him kicked off the field and maybe get somebody hurt. Remember,
it’s okay to play aggressive, it’s not okay to be aggressive.
