Saw the same thing here in Quebec. My friend, who was is first time and running with a yellow "smiley" t-shirt was sprayed by 2 guy, saying he was cheating. Worst in this, the ref just say to be more careful and left to see other.
One of the reason I left paintball, too many idiots playing. Not all of them are like this, but on this field there's too many, the refs are no better... (I wont name the field, all the people of Quebec may know it anyway :P)
