Pro scenario baller here checking in. I also dabble in amateur speedball, and rec-ball. Been playing about 8 years. Lately I've been loving rec-ball on the field on base. Lots of Marines and trainees to smash on

I wonder why all these teams are dropping out of the NPPL, I personally like the PSP format better anyway but its weird that a lot of teams are dropping out

i've been hearing its the way the league is run and that there are some former dynasty players working for the NPPL which may lead to one of the reasons why dynasty got a way with a bunch of crap

Personally I look at what the prize package is and the number of games per entry you get. Pro teams it doesn't really matter but the lower divisions it does. Now in NPPL you are lucky if you can get your entry fee back and that's it. You can't even get the money from paint, travel, logging, food, etc. if you get first place; PSP on the other had you can. Plus PSP gives you more guaranteed games for the entry cost. Say you are playing Race to 4 you get about 4-5 matches, even if you lose every point you still get 16-20 games vs a guaranteed 10 max in NPPL. Entry fees are pretty close to each other but getting a guaranteed 6 games more is a big difference.

Now look at who runs the NPPL. They are players of teams and they are the ones who hire the staff and refs for the events. It was said that when Avalanche won IIRC Chicago last year, they got there because Frank Conell told some refs that if they made a questionable call on his team they would be fired and not be paid, or something along those lines. He used is "power" to intimidate the refs and swayed the outcome of the event. Now is that completely accurate? I don't know, it was just something that was going around.

NPPL has no way of stopping people from sandbagging either. They use their own registration system and only count points for their events. You could play in the Pro division for years in PSP but if you have never played NPPL then you could technically play D4 because you have no points in their system. It happens at every NPPL event, D1 or D2 players/teams in PSP play D3 or D4 in NPPL more then the allowed higher ranked players per team rule.

^ That makes a lot more sense. I always liked the PSP format anyhow because it is more enjoyable to watch and I feel like the players go harder because you can have multiple points to win, but never played competitively so who knows(aside from local stuff)
