That method has been tried before... trying to get the community's input.

It doesn't work, simply because the community is unwilling to allow it.
If he was going to do this... he did it really the only way he could.

Well that all depends on the blowback we see. Though the segment in and of itself wasn't terrible, it also wasn't a slam dunk. I know myself and a number of other people will be watching the CFC and RCMP very carefully over the next few days, to see if we will have any major blowback.

We won't know for some time. There is potential for things to go in several ways. At this point, there is no point in considering damage control until we see what, if any, damage has been done.

The dollar signs in Brian's eyes become more and more apparent every time one of these things happens. Whats his excuse this time? I didn't know they were reporters. I was drugged.


EDIT> shit i think i should delete this before he threatens to sue people for slander again

i watched the video, and i find that someone could easily misunderstand it, when they mention bullets instead of bb's

I'll echo Goldman's sentiments in that it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been and may be as close to a positive maintstream news segment on airsoft that will ever be in Canada.

I would suggest that he have asked the community first (again) but he would reply (justifiably) that he would not have been 'allowed' to run it. Well, I would have preferred for it not to run, and I'm sure many people agree with me.

I don't mean any of this bitterly or spitefully, but Brian, if you were to run this come hell or highwater, could you not have given us a little warning?

Unless my memory totally sucks, he DID say that reporters and TV would be at his event. Made it very clear too.

I love the closing comments......."After all what could be more fun than running into a hail of bullets?"........said with what I found to be a hint of sarcasm. :banghead:

Grey, could you provide a link to this post? I imagine I speak for others when I say that I dont recall this exactly? Like was this a post made in the game thread, or something like a general announcement to the community at large?

this community does nothing but complain and "hide behind a rock", and there's alot more people in it with dollar signs in there eyes than just brian.
it's a shame airsoft didn't get as popular before 1998 in canada
otherwise we'd have had a better position for legalization like the brits did
it's alot harder to change a law than it is to change or add to a bill before it becomes law, we had that 1 letter to the goverment and i don't think anything else was done since. aside from kang's unsuccesful attemps at it from a buisness standpoint

That doesn't sound good so far...

Anyhow... that article made it seem like Airsoft is terribly small and mostly (if not completely) confined to Toronto. Nothing was mentioned about Airsoft being played nation-wide (Even internationally). Problem with that is--Politicians will figure a few votes from 20-some people won't make that bit of a difference compared to the 999 million soccer moms.
